Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human.
So far three episodes of Legion have aired and I’ve watched each of them. If I wasn’t trying to get as much sleep as possible I’d stay up and watch them live, as is I’m watching them at two o’clock in the morning while feeding my son.
The show is trippy, but not so much that there is no story. Honestly, I’m not sure exactly what’s going on or what’s real but it’s told in such a visually captivating way that it doesn’t bother me at all.
David’s story is being teased out slowly but enough is revealed in each episode to keep me satisfied and it’s just so weird that I can’t help but want to know what happens next.
I haven’t read anything about Legion from the comics and that hasn’t hampered my enjoyment of the show at all.
