    Default Legion

    I didn't see a thread about this but I watched the pilot today.
    Definitely hooked me enough to watch a few episodes, but they need to dial the imagery today, it's a little too much of Alice in Wonderland meets Mr Robot, but it lacks the narration that made the latter so enveloping.
    The casting, acting and premise is brilliant.

    Thoughts?

    its always the same with pilots, it hard to introduce the idea of the programs and usually take a few episodes to get a good take of a series, but this looks a good show so far

    I watched the first episode, it wasn't really my thing, I've yet to watch anything past the pilot episode though.

    I loved the first two episodes. I'm willing to already say Legion is the best super hero tv show. Superheros have become rather boring at this point which helps Legions different style and take on the genre succeed so much. Can't wait to see how this show plays out.

    I watched the first two episodes over the weekend. I enjoyed it. It's different, but a good different.

    I was not expecting the random X-men analogue though

    I really enjoyed when they went back to his memory and his Dad was reading the angriest kid in the world.
    The woman had a total "oh shit" face, it's either a real memory or a delusion, either way he is pretty screwed up.

    I'm loving it, telling a complex and often visually stunning story, have to see how the end game plays out, hopefully the build all pays off. But being FX, I have faith, one of the best channels around quality wise, consistently produced some of the best TV.

    I wouldn't say basically, I'd say all speculation was put to rest when they revealed the name of the dog.

    I said basically because they've made a continuous point to say that they aren't using anything from the comics/FOX movies aside from David and that mutants exist. They probably won't call it that name but that's what it is.

    Well, that was fucking metal. Maybe one of my favorite single episodes of anything ever, just brilliant start to finish, did not let up

    Every episode has been a homerun but last night was a grand slam. Legion is officially up there with Game of Thrones as a must watch.
