Best new show you're not watching, Legion on FX
For those of you thinking "Not another Super Hero show", it's not anything like your standard Super Hero show. The main character is crazy and the audience sees the show through that filter much like in Mr. Robot.

quote:

while it's based on a Marvel comic, Legion is unlike any comic-book series TV has ever offered. Oh, superpowers will appear: telepathy, telekinesis and dream travel among them. But Legion is more interested in the toll those powers take, and the result is a trippy, candy-colored, visually berserk psychological puzzle that makes you question what and who is real at all times. It’s a complex picture, and Hawley uses every color and tool at his disposal to paint it.

It's got high quality production

A great cast

I gave it a chance because Noah Hawley has his hand in this. Glad I did. Great show and FX has hit another home run.

The Exorcist is better, but Legion is second.

Is it getting good ratings? Looks like a show that won't last long.

Completely agree - it is a fantastic show and ride so far. Visually and intellectually compelling.

Sounds intriguing. I haven't seen a comic movie or series that I've liked yet other than Guardians of the Galaxy and I think that was mostly for the whipass sound track.

The first episode seems a little disjointed as part of what we're seeing is a bit of David's view of reality (the dance scene was especially out of place). But if you stick with it, the payoff is good (and his g/f is hawt).

This is a smart show with some interesting twists (think first season of American Horror Story) and is definitely worth the time investment.

Isn't that the tagline for pretty much every single super hero show coming out now?

It is, but it's true for this show. Just take a look at the season long thread.

Very confusing first episode but the ending left me intrigued.

This show is a mindfrick. Hard to tell wtf is going on.

What the hell was I watching. Acting was good but total mindfrick. Will watch more but confusing as frick so far.

This show is crazy. I like it.

No idea what I just watched.

This is something else. Wow

I've never done LSD or dropped acid before but I'm pretty sure that's as close to a trip as one can get without actually doing drugs.



Out of context that sampling of confusion could seem like a negative, but if you read the thread you'll see that we're all enjoying the crazy.

I don't think the ratings are particularly good but the show is damn good and worth watching. I hope more people will give it a chance.

I don't think I have the attention span to watch this one week to week. Might wait to binge.

I have 4 or 5 queued up in the DVR to binge this weekend with the wife out of town and some shrooms.

Yeah, I was thinking some pain medication might help with viewing this show.

I'll have to check this out. Aubrey Plaza is enough for me to watch at least 1 episode. She just does it for me.
