User Reviews

pretty good show starring Sean Bean
15 October 2014 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

"Legends" is the story of a man, Martin Odom (Sean Bean) who goes undercover for the FBI's Division of Covert Operations, a division that investigates terrorism. To go undercover, he takes on a "legend," which is a completely new character.

Martin is considered one of the best in the business, but his intensity and complete commitment to his legend has an effect on his personal life. He finds it difficult to come out of these legends, and it seems to have ruined his marriage. He's now divorced with a young boy.

Because he's considered psychologically unstable, his overseer, Crystal (Ali Larter) doesn't quite trust him, but the man above her (Steve Harris) has no problem sending him out on assignments.

As the first year of the series continues, we find out that Martin Odom may be a legend himself -- there is missing time in his life, after he was supposedly in a car accident. However, clues have surfaced that he was actually part of a covert mission in Afghanistan. So Martin starts trying to find out who he is and whether or not his ex-wife was involved in the cover-up of that part of his life.

Since the story has become more personal for Martin, the episodes have become more interesting. Sean Bean is a strong actor and excellent in the role. He provides a great anchor.

This is a dark show that sometimes can be a little confusing, but I found myself tuning in week after week. I like it.
