A Supercut Celebrating the Power and Beauty of ‘Legion,’ the Best New Show of 2017

4 April 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The game-changing series gets a succinct and gorgeous tribute.

If you missed Noah Hawley’s Legion on FX, you missed one of the greatest television series to come along since, well, Noah Hawley’s Fargo. Not only is Legion an inventive take on the Marvel Comics’ character it’s based on, it’s also a new kind of “superhero” story, one that places fragile humanity ahead of indestructible superhumanity, one that delves into the cursed psyche of the genetically blessed, one that emphasizes how not all heroes are born heroic, and one that reveals the power — great or small — derived from mastering our personal flaws.

Besides being a fascinating narrative game of Chutes and Ladders played on a Moebius Strip between two mirrors, and in addition to featuring career-altering performances from Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast), Rachel Keller (Fargo), Bill Irwin (Interstellar), Jean Smart (Designing Women) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Rec) — who is “Alex DeLarge,” “Hannibal »

‘Legion 1×08′ Review

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

With the way last week’s Legion ended, there was a feeling that this finale couldn’t live up to what we’d already seen. Thankfully, we can trust Legion to deliver where it matters, and that includes a hint of what is to come in season 2.

With Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) now restrained within David’s (Dan Stevens) head, the next big problem is the return of Division 3 and Clark (Hamish Linklater), the interrogator from the first episode. Hardly in a position of power, will he be forced to work with David to handle the danger held within his mind?

It isn’t a surprise really that David handles Division 3 so easy, but what is interesting is that we get to see some »

5 Things We Learned From 'Legion,' Season 1

30 March 2017 6:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Now that its first season has wrapped, FX's Legion has to go down as the most audacious superhero show that any big-time TV network has ever attempted – which makes sense, given that it featured a character who's one of the oddest in the history of the X-Men comics. A scarily strong telekinetic mutant, David "Legion" Haller (played by Dan Stevens) has trouble distinguishing between his ability to read minds and the "hearing voices in your head" strain of mental illness. So even in the series' season finale, when David was »

Legion has been good at keeping its secrets, sometimes to an annoying level. Now though as we reach the end of the first season we come to the episode that provides most of the answers, setting us up for what appears to be an explosive finale.

With David (Dan Stevens) trapped deep in his mind, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is upping the stakes on taking over his body. With Lenny’s true identity finally revealed, Cary (Bill Irwin) and Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) discuss how to defeat the new enemy while Syd (Rachel Keller) works to free the rest of the group, including David before it is too late.

What we are given in this episode of Legion is the perfect episode. We are »

Legion had a definite theme this week, and that is about holding back. Whether it is David (Dan Stevens) being held back by Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), or the bullets that are set to ruin everybody’s day.

While an episode which is set back in the mental hospital may put the fear into many fans that this would be a weak episode, there really wasn’t anything to worry about. What we see is David being put in a protective reality, just a shame it is Lenny (or as we now know her, the Devil with the Yellow Eyes) that appears to be in control. What is interesting about the setting of this episode is how David’s reality uses a lot of »

Legion has held back on giving us the truth around David (Dan Stevens) but this week it feels that we are finally close to that answer. With Cary (Bill Irwin) finally working it out, maybe the problem of Legion isn’t all just in David’s mind?

After the events of last week, now is the time for David to finally show his powers. Finally going to Division 3 to save his sister, the big question is, just who is in control and is David’s actions is own or some other sinister power?

One thing that I’ve enjoyed about Legion is the handling of mental illness within the show. It has always been questioned whether it is David’s mental state, or »

If there is one thing we know about David (Dan Stevens) it is that he is an enigma, and Legion is taking its time in revealing the true answer. With him seemingly out of action though, this week we get to see the rest of the team search for answers.

While David is having an out-of-body experience and meeting Dr. Bird’s (Jean Smart) husband Oliver (Jemaine Clement), the rest of the group go on a road trip to find out the truth behind David. Finding out a darker side to his past though, it isn’t long before The Eye (Mackenzie Gray) catches up with them.

It seems each week I’m saying that this is the latest episode is the best so far, »

'Legion's' Bill Irwin on the "Mythic" Power of Noah Hawley's X-Men Series

1 March 2017 8:18 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday's episode of FX's Legion, "Chapter 4."]

It's some use crying over spilled Loudermilk, the shared last name of two of the more quietly fascinating characters on FX's Legion. In one corner, there's Cary (Bill Irwin), the brilliant man who co-founded the mutant haven known as Summerland. Within that same corner, there's Kerry (Amber Midthunder), the young warrior who literally lives inside of Cary's body, and only ages when she's out on her own — hence the age discrepancy between Cary and Kerry.

Watching each new episode of Legion is now officially the highlight of the week. Now that we are into the third episode we understand the characters and what they represent, but what happens when we get deeper into David’s (Dan Stevens) thoughts? Prepare for some dark times and sinister characters.

With David’s sister in danger, time is running out for him to understand his powers. Pushing deeper into his psyche, it seems that some things in his mind do not welcome the invasion and are prepared to fight back.

Having already pointed out that this is a more persona type of superhero show where it focuses on the character more than any grandiose events, this episode cements that fact in stone. »

Legion Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘Chapter 3’

23 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the third episode of Legion

‘Chapter Three’ of Legion is the middle ground to ‘Chapter One’s‘ roller coaster and ‘Chapter Two’s‘ backtracking. Waking up from memory work this episode, in a different room from where they went under, the trips are growing more dangerous instead of easy. Dr. Bird holds David to blame for his limited progress, but David remains adamant that he isn’t the one slamming doors in their faces. The question becomes, who is?

With Amy’s kidnapping leaving them crunched for time, Dr. Bird oversteps her role as therapist. Instead of waiting for David to reach his own conclusions, about what certain memories mean, she tells him what they mean. If David disagrees, she discounts his opinion. Memories start overlapping and David sees a hologram image of his old therapy sessions with Dr. Poole (Scott Lawrence). More traditional in style, those »

Breaking The Darkness: Exploring Legion Season 1, Episode 3

22 February 2017 8:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The third episode of Legion takes us farther into the history of David Haller, the man who is either a schizophrenic, a “mutant,” or both. It opens with three minutes of what would be nonsense on almost any other show, but here, it’s right at home.

David sits on the dock of an opaque pond while someone repeatedly asks, “shall we begin,” the mutants of Summerland begin their day, random images come across the screen (David’s childhood dog, leeches in a tank, and his sister’s apparent kidnapping and interrogation by the sinister Division 3) and the disembodied voice of Melanie Bird’s husband Oliver (Jemaine Clement) tells her a parable. What makes it so odd is that, when the episode opens this way, we still don’t know who Oliver is or why his voice comes from a machine, and we don’t know what many of the images in this montage mean. »
