‘Legion’ Gives a Clue About When It’s Set (and Where It Falls Among The ‘X-Men’ Films)

4 hours ago

(Spoilers ahead for the FX original “Legion through the Feb. 22 episode.) So far, FX’s “Legion” has been pretty closed-lipped about when exactly the show takes place. It has a late-1960s or early 1970s aesthetic, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that those decades are when it takes place. The “when” of “Legion” is a meaningful question since the show is part of the “X-Men” film canon. Trouble is, creator Noah Hawley hasn’t revealed exactly how “Legion” syncs up with any “X-Men” stuff, if at all. It seems as though it might be set in the rebooted timeline created by the time. »

4 hours ago

The trouble with FX’s new “X-Men”-adjacent superhero show, “Legion,” is that it’s never clear what’s real and what isn’t. That makes it tough to keep track of the timeline of the show.

Here’s a list of all the events that happen in “Legion” in order, as near to reality as anyone can tell. David is born Logical place to start. David is a nice kid with »

Hollywood Agencies Vie for Trump-Era Bragging Rights: Who’s Most Politically Engaged?

5 hours ago

Hollywood one-upmanship took a turn into politics this week, as leading talent agency CAA followed in the footsteps of rivals Wme and UTA by hastily announcing a day-long summit of political leaders for Thursday.

On Wednesday morning, CAA announced it would hold a “day-long, nonpartisan summit” on Thursday — featuring conversations with Senator Kamala Harris, former Senator Barbara Boxer and Muslim Public Affairs Council Founder Salam Al-Marayati, »

‘Kid Victory’ Theater Review: Life Is Not a Cabaret in John Kander’s New Musical

6 hours ago

Greg Pierce and the legendary John Kander have written a new musical that makes “Fun Home” look downright sunny.

8 hours ago

Jackie Evancho, the 16-year-old “America’s Got Talent” star who performed the national anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration, has spoken out against the president for his decision to rescind Obama Administration-era protections for transgender public school students.

Fox’s Hidden Ratings Woes: Network Would Be Dead Last Without World Series, Super Bowl

9 hours ago

My, how the times have changed. Just a few years ago, Fox declared the entire notion of the ongoing pilot season dead, complete with an “R.I.P.” tombstone graphic. This pilot season, however, no one at the network is resting, and very few on the entertainment side should be at peace. Roughly three-quarters of the way through the traditional TV season, Fox finds itself just one-tenth of a Nielsen ratings point behind leader NBC. That’s pretty good for the underdog and youngest-skewing broadcast network, right? Well, kind of. Most of the channel’s momentum can actually be attributed »
