Quotes

[first lines]
Oliver Bird: Good evening. We are here tonight to talk about violence, or maybe human nature. We are here to talk about human nature. Wait, a quote. A great philosopher
[Friedrich Nietzsche]
Oliver Bird: once wrote; 'In times of peace the warlike man attacks himself.' This is the root of all our problems, and by this, I mean we. We are the root of all our problems, our confusion, our anger, our fear of things we don't understand. Violence in other words, is ignorance. Figure your shit out, that's what I'd ...

Strange for the sake of strangeness
2 March 2017 | by Mixx-2See all my reviews

The first episodes of this series were kind of interesting. It was a different take on the superhero - a deeply troubled man trying to find himself in a torrent of chaotic events.

We are now on Episode 4 and already the story begins to show serious cracks. Tired old tropes badly executed, like when someone asks a question it never gets answered, just ignored - over and over, and the Question is not even an interesting one to begin with. This is supposed to keep the mystery but in this case it gets old really fast. The way people talk and interact, even the supposedly sane ones..... that is not how people talk or act. Anyone remember the phrase "Save the cheerleader, save the world"? This is less interesting and thought provoking than "Heroes" were.

There is no logic to this episode. Just look at what happens at the end of the episode and you'll know of what I'm talking about.

This week we got a David Lynchian vibe but without the intelligence.

I'll sit the rest of the series out. There are so much better ways to spend 50 minutes than to waste it on Legion.
