Legion 102 Header

Legion
Episode 1.2 “Chapter 2”
Written by Noah Hawley
Directed by Michael Uppendahl
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: February 15, 2017

Last week’s premiere of the longly awaited new FX & Marvel series Legion, lived up to any and all expectations. It was in this humble reviewer’s opinion, one of the best pilot episodes in TV history. Dan Stevens plays David Haller, a mutant with many abilities, many which remain unseen. We watch Haller’s journey through mental wards, where he befriends Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) and woos Syd (Rachel Keller). The whole first half felt like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest on an acid trip. Haunted by visions and powers, Haller escaped the institution after kissing Syd and switching bodies with her, but quickly finds himself locked in another room being interrogated by unknown government officials, who are either trying to harness his mutant powers or destroy the potential threat. He is inevitably rescued by Syd along with a team of mutants led by Melanie Bird (Jean Smart). Bring on episode 2!

Spoilers below for Episode 2 of Legion:

Legion
Episode 1.1. “Chapter 1”
Written by Noah Hawley
Directed by Noah Hawley
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: February 8, 2017

With comic book heroes in constant demand on television and mental illness a hit at that box office with M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, the time seems perfect for FX to roll out Legion. Legion, based on the Marvel Comics character created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is one of the most powerful mutants in Marvel’s X-Men universe. Real name David Charles Haller, Legion is the son of Professor X himself. He suffers from a variety of mental health issues, among them split personalities, with each personality having its own power. These include telepathy, telekinesis, pyrokinesis, and time travel.

FX is the destination for antiheroes. From Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy to James Delaney on Taboo, Legion, which is a Marvel Television production, will fit right in.
