News & Interviews for Legion: Season 3
Even if "Legion" isn't the sum of its parts, some of those parts are spectacular on their own.
Legion uses visuals, editing, music and sound better than almost any series on television. And I don't just mean any series now -- I mean ever.
Season Two wandered aimlessly until not even the pretty pictures were enough to justify the muddled storytelling. This third and final season mostly returned to that original, effective balance.
As always, Legion is dazzling on a visual level. It plays with frame ratio, color, mood, tone, and sound with wild abandon. This season gave us entrancing sequences.
With three seasons and barely 30 episodes, Legion was nothing if not a feat of visual artistry, a meditation on the human mind that necessitated engaging our own in order to participate.
It's a marvel just how ambitious this series is, and how it so expertly weaves between disparate character and story arcs while still feeling polished.
A zany, well stylized and brilliantly shot series as we've come to expect, but I have to say the ending was a little anti-climactic...
Legion wasn't ever going to be a show with a traditional happy ending. But maybe this is as close as it gets.
I responded to moments of Legion because I vibed with its project, but all of the aspects of that project ended up working better in other shows.
Legion's third season premiere is as quirky and whimsical as you want it to be.
If this first episode is any indication, we are in for a wild ride during the final season of FX's Legion.
Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 3
Jan 29, 2021The best TV show I've honestly ever seen
Dec 08, 2020Probably the weirdest season, but what can you expect from an X-Men show written by Noah Hawley? The ending was beautiful and couldn't have been better. I was shocked and in deep awe at the route Hawley chose, but it was perfect. The new faces were very welcome. A great and almost perfect ending to a great and almost perfect show.
Oct 12, 2020While it wrapped up all the loose ends by the end and there were moments that were really cool, it just doesn't seem worth it.
Aug 10, 2020a perfect ending for a almost perfect series, 10/10
Jul 19, 2020I feel about legion seasons 2 and 3 very much how I felt about the the Matrix sequels; whereas the Matrix explored philosophical ideas using an engaging story and interesting characters, the reloaded/revolutions sequels featured a lot of people talking psychobabble about philosophy, tacked to an increasing reliance on CGI and big fight scenes to tell a story that didn't hang together or make sense. This is the same here. Season 2 of legion was a mess; a long, drawn out, boring mess that did nothing of substance to further the plot of the excellent season 1, and didn't even explain what happened to David at the end of S1. Season 3 has the same problem, albeit stripped down to only 8 episodes; nevertheless, I found myself doing other things whilst watching it in the background, there was so little to engage me in the story. To be fair, the stylish production has never wavered, but style over substance is not the way to tell a story that had clearly run out of ideas. I also found the character motivations to be questionable; the turnaround of David's character was unconvincing in season 2 and the hippy colony plot in season 3 is pathetic and silly. The one bright spark in this mess is the introduction of switch (great debut role for Lauren Tsai) and the time travel ideas; unfortunately, this never really gets explored/explained in any great detail, and the ending is just flat. The other characters in this season basically get sidelined and there is a criminal under use of Amber Midthunder who seems to have been written into a never ending series of fight sequences (a la Kill Bill) as if they couldn't think of a role for her in seasons 2 and 3. The introduction of David's parents is drawn out and not really explored that well; it feels again as though they've been thrown in the mix because the writers couldn't htink of where to go next. Amahl Farouk basically gets to repeat the same role he had in season 2 with no real expansion of the character and in the end he just stops. And what happened to Lenny? This isn't explained either. Again, one of the best actresses on the show is under used, side lined, forgotten about conveniently at the end. Where, as I say, the show just stops. I found the conclusion to be one of the most disappointing ever (after LOST) but it wasn't much of a surprise after a pretty boring third season.
Jun 21, 2020Almost perfect show. Casting, score, story, direction, special effects. The action/fighting scenes are hard to watch they're so bad.
Jun 04, 2020Tan extraña como siempre.
May 09, 2020Its a piece of art, clever, different from a heroes show. The World isn't prepare for this masterpiece
Apr 22, 2020After some years of studying pop-cultural narratives I came to realisation of just how hard it is to write a satisfying ultimate ending for anything longer that a miniseries, thus I all the more appreciate such an ending when I see one. The last season of „Legion" delivers conclusion that is really, really close to that, although also not flawless. While still trying to push forward the very borders of television it goes to a whole new direction and is completely different form first and second season. We see here great developments of already known characters (especially David and the Shadow King, my personal favorite), as well as a really intriguing story of a new character, Switch, which ends with fabulously warm twist. All in all I am thankful that creators of the show did not decide to prolong, and therefore overuse, their chance at changeing television and ended their TV series the way they did.
Mar 29, 2020A visual and creative delight.
