‘Legion 1×02′ Review

17 February 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

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

Legion is finally here, and with a first episode like last week it is fair to say that episode two had a lot to live up to. Carrying on from where the other left off, it is time for us to learn more about the people who saved David, and maybe more about the man himself…

With David (Dan Stevens) now free and reunited with Syd (Rachel Keller) it looks like he is now safe. With The Eye (Mackenzie Gray) on his trail though time is short for him to find answers, and not only about him, but also Syd and his other new friends too.

It almost feels like familiar territory when David is being tested to work out his powers. If anything, »

‘Legion’ Costume Design: Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Wardrobe of the New ‘X-Men’ Series

16 February 2017 3:43 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

What did you expect? Yellow spandex? Bryan Singer’s “X-Men” series bore little resemblance to its comic book counterpart in terms of costuming, and FX’s “Legion” seems to be taking the same approach — albeit with a much more psychedelic angle. Copper-colored track-suits and and a combination of looks inspired by the 1960s to today have helped compliment the mind-bending world created by Noah Hawley.

In the featurette below, costume designer Carol Case and others describe the elements that went into designing the wardrobe for the “X-Men” adaptation. “There are modern elements obviously, then there are these out-of-times element,” Hawley says, “which seem like today or tomorrow or yesterday.”

“Wardrobe is just another one of those elements that brings everything together,” actress Aubrey Plaza says. “I don’t know what [Case] is doing over there. She’s like a mad scientist wardrobe lady. »

‘Legion’: Noah Hawley’s ‘Romance of the Mind’ Might Be Hiding a Heart of Darkness

15 February 2017 8:07 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Legion” Season 1, “Chapter 2.”]

Apocalypse Now

Maybe the wild premiere left me Fubar, but the opening of “Legion’s” second episode gave off major “Apocalypse Now” vibes. David’s ominous, deadened voiceover recalled Martin Sheen’s war-torn work in Francis Ford Coppola’s classic. The song — “Road to Nowhere” by the Talking Heads — served as a modern stand-in for The Doors’ “The End,” which would be far too on-the-nose (and overused) to be repurposed yet again, but the notes guided a slow, seemingly peaceful riverboat ride; an iconic wartime image, countlessly repurposed in many an action film, but never so effectively alluding to the horrors hidden on each riverbed as in the Oscar-winning 1979 film.

Breaking The Darkness: Exploring Legion Season 1, Episode 2

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

The following is a recap of the first two episodes of FX’s Legion. The first outing introduced us to David Haller (Dan Stevens), a “mutant” living in a mental hospital called Clockworks. Through non-linear storytelling and an exploration of David’s world, we learned that our protagonist has lived his life believing that his telekinetic and telepathic superpowers are a mental illness.

During the pilot, we also get acquainted with some of the major events in his recent life. These include switching bodies with his girlfriend, Syd Barrett (Rachel Keller), and escaping his mental hospital, Clockworks, during which his friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) dies in a wall that he may have created; returning home to his sister and talking with Lenny, his recently-deceased friend; getting captured and interrogated by a sinister governmental organization, before escaping with the help of Syd and fellow mutants; and joining up with a team of other superhumans, »

TV Ratings: FX’s ‘Legion’ Off to Good Start With 3.27 Million Viewers

13 February 2017 2:16 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX’s foray into the superhero world is off to a decent start. In Nielsen’s Live+3 ratings, the premiere on Feb. 8 drew 1.8 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic and 3.27 million total viewers.

If you tack on the two encores that also aired that night — FX sells ads on a cume, so it’s not quite as dodgy a practice in this case — that brings the haul to 2.39 million in the demo and 4.37 million viewers on the whole. These numbers don’t include streaming or viewing done on VOD. That’s a healthy boost over the live ratings, which were around 896,000 viewers in the demo (a 0.7 rating) and 1.68 million total viewers. That was better than the premiere of Tom Hardy’s period drama “Taboo” in the demo (0.6), if not total viewers (2.16 million). Most FX series — and scripted shows on other networks — see big lifts with delayed viewing.

Scratching your head after Legion's mind-blowing first episode? Join us as we pick through the details. Spoilers ahead...

This article contains spoilers for Legion episode 1.

Legion has finally arrived! After what felt like a huge pile of teasers, the first X-Men series from the new Fox/Marvel collaboration has reached our television sets. And, as expected, it’s a bit odd. Good odd, I think, but it’s a bit early to say for sure.

Fargo’s Noah Hawley has written an intricate storytelling weave made of mutants and madness, and its hour-long opening episode left me with rather a lot of questions. Here they are, along with some stab-in-the-dark attempts to answer them. »

Nick Offerman Discusses Dubbing Work in ‘My Life as a Zucchini’

9 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nick Offerman made a name for himself as Ron Swanson for seven seasons on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” And ever since that acclaimed comedy came to an end in 2015, he’s been working nonstop. He had four films bow at Sundance this year — supporting roles in the surreal period comedy “The Little Hours” opposite “Parks” co-star Aubrey Plaza and the Sam Elliott vehicle “The Hero”; the documentary “Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry,” which he produced; and a voice role in the English-language dub of the celebrated French animated film “My Life as a Zucchini.” “Zucchini,” which is up for this year’s animated feature Oscar, opens theatrically from GKids on Feb. 24.

How did you get involved with “My Life as a Zucchini”?

[GKids] did a similar thing a couple of years ago with a great film called “Ernest & Celestine” in which my wife [Megan Mullally] and I voice a couple of supporting characters. »

Legion Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘Chapter One’

9 February 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the first episode of Legion

Legion’s pilot has no qualms pulling the rug out from under you. Here are some of the arguments made for why you should put up with it.

Coming off of successfully reimagining Fargo, creator, writer and director of this episode, Noah Hawley, brings the same visual inventiveness and soundtrack to a show where reality’s in flux. At Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital, David (Dan Stevens) is diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. This diagnosis is pointed to whenever he mentions having telekinetic powers but new patient, Sydney (Rachel Keller), thinks the doctors are afraid; that they would have David doubt his powers with meds because they are real.

Is Sydney real? Turning their heads so their reflections kiss in a window, not since Pushing Daisies has a show wrought so much emotion out of a couple not touching, but watch the door when »

‘Legion’ Recap: The Piper at the Gates of Wtf

8 February 2017 8:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Something new needs to happen soon.”

Thus says David Haller (Dan Stevens) to his sister (Katie Aselton) four-and-a-half minutes into the premiere of FX’s “Legion.” Like a red windshield scraper protruding from the snow, the line is a marker indicating that something new is indeed on its way. And that little foreshadowing is the most conventional bit of storytelling we get in the first installment of “Legion” — a relentlessly weird, relentlessly intriguing show that manages to stand out from the enormous crowd of the Peak TV era.

From “Fargo” writer and executive producer Noah Hawley, “Legion” tells the story of David Haller, played by “Downton Abbey” vet Stevens. David, as we learn in an opening montage set to The Who’s “Happy Jack,” was a baby, then a little boy, then a troubled teenager with some serious mental-health issues. Also maybe some superpowers.

For the initiated, this is not news. In »

‘Legion’ Premiere: The 9 Moments That Make It a Masterpiece

8 February 2017 8:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In terms of plot, the “Legion” premiere isn’t hard to summarize. David Haller (Dan Stevens) is committed to a mental institution after trying to kill himself. There, he falls in love with Syd Barrett (Rachel Keller), a woman who believes David’s “sickness” is what makes him special. But David might not actually be sick. He may have telekinetic and telepathic powers, and when Syd is allowed to leave and he isn’t, David uses those powers to get back to her.

Of course, the presentation of the plot — the story driving “Legion” — is much more complex. David is a damaged, untrusting young man seeking a connection to reality that his mind refuses to provide. Syd represents that connection and may be looking for a forbidden connection herself. The couple, joined by a group of similarly alienated individuals, rebel against their oppressors to find happiness within and among themselves… »
