TNT Series Legends Pilot Review
13 August 2014 | by GoodToBeAGeekSee all my reviews

Fan favorite Sean Bean is back on the small screen in the latest TNT series, Legends. The series, based on the novel by Robert Littell, follows a deep cover agent embedded in dangerous situations, working in the interest of national security.

Through the course of the episode, the audience follows Bean's character through his undercover work and discovers the struggles he faces in his home life. All of this pales in comparison to the greater story when Bean's character is confronted and told he is not who he thinks he is; the life he believes is his is just a legend - a fictional character history created for the purpose of undercover operations.

The concept is intriguing and the pilot episode is well balanced. Although, more action sequences would have been welcome. The supporting cast, which includes Ali Larter, Steve Harris and Tina Majorino, among others, is impressive. Bean's acting prowess is the real reason to tune it. One scene in particular has Bean shifting into a different character in front of the other characters and the transformation is a highlight of the episode.

If the rest of the series follows the formula of the pilot episode, audiences can expect a new threat every week, as well as an opportunity for Bean's acting skills to shine as he transforms into a new character every week.
