September 13, 2017
Legion is truly a one-of-a-kind adaptation that's basically Marvel-adjacent, also drawing inspiration from other media.

[Legion] is a fight that most of the world can identify with right now.
August 28, 2017
The show is confident, stunningly beautiful, and truly funny despite its sometimes terrifying subject matter.

It's all giddy, good fun. And yet I'm a little trepidatious about Legion.
June 28, 2017
It almost feels like a show about mutants doesn't deserve to be this good, but Legion demonstrates what the future of comic book adaptations on both TV and film should look like.
June 28, 2017
As superhero TV reaches critical mass, Hawley has helped the genre take a necessary evolutionary leap, mutating it into something refreshingly sophisticated and artful.
June 27, 2017
In the ever-escalating stakes of superhero TV, where the goal these days is to get trippier and trippier, nothing could out-trip Legion.
May 19, 2017
It's a world where we are as unsettled as the hero. Dan Stevens captures beautifully the angst and sheer terror of his situation.
March 23, 2017
So turn off those other, subpar comic-book shows: this is the series you should be bingeing.
March 21, 2017
I'm just a bit skeptical of visual flair and masterful direction papering over a few narrative shortcomings.
March 14, 2017
Much like Logan, it's taken a darker, more mature comic book storyline and molded it into something visually and emotionally insightful. Legion doesn't care about crazy villains, flashy costumes, or awesome powers.
March 9, 2017
Like 'Westworld' - not to mention TV viewers post-DVR and streaming - the show basks in the possibilities of stopping time.
March 2, 2017
Legion puts the bite back into the X-Men universe on screen.
February 13, 2017
Every scene is a dense visual and sonic cornucopia. Even quiet moments are packed with garish colors, clashing soundscapes, lush visuals and anachronistic fashion.
February 10, 2017
Legion stands to be one of the most innovative new shows of the year.
February 10, 2017
Cinematic, creepy, beautiful, and bizarre, this hallucinatory series may be both the best superhero show on the air and the best X-Men iteration yet.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

While there may be Easter eggs for X-Men fans, Legion exists -- thrives -- in its own (astral) plane.

It is a muddle, a beautifully styled, scary, and withholding muddle that can't easily be placed in a specific time period.
February 9, 2017
There's a unique beauty to its artful strangeness that might attract a new set of viewers to the realm of comic-book adaptation.
February 9, 2017
Even if it seems a foregone conclusion that the powers are real, this suspenseful and, at times, truly scary discovery process is more compelling than any action set-piece governed by gravity-defying superhero physics.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
