The loyalty test episode.
4 June 2018 | by Br4ve-trave1orSee all my reviews

They're two groups, one who think the characters are paper thin and it's all style over substance and If you felt that way coming into the season 2 opener, those feelings would be reaffirmed.


If you belong to the other group that just loves this show for various reasons mainly that it's like a new genre and people can argue that Twin peeks did this but I would disagree being that I didnt like twin peeks. This episode set the bar even higher and theres a straight forward concept of this episode but it's designed with outstanding film directing, editing, visuals, music, etc.

People feel its wierd and I totally understand that and feel like this is a series where you arent hand held the whole time. It's very cerebral but it's not a smart persons show it's just a certain way of storytelling that intrigues me like crazy!!!

I loved the dance scene personally and actually got The OA vibe but it was just exhilarating.

Syd telling him with one arm from the future that he has to find shadow king find a new body makes it exciting because that means the possibility of more Lenny!!! The way they communicated was just superb and intriguing.

I am lost most moments too but it makes me pay extra attention and engage in this show more.

John Hamm narrating it was just perfect and I read a review that provided excellent feedback about the man that cuts his leg off!

I'll be honest, I am a story teller and crave a great story. I love series that captures a brilliant plot and executes it. So, I put off watching this series until June 1st 2018!!! The last thing I expected was to like this series, especially because twin peeks was mentioned. Season 1 upon bingeing was fantastic compared to my first attempt watching it weekly.

This is a show I feel you need to binge rather than watch weekly. It's even making me reconsider watching the newest season of twin peeks now and made me believe in it if I actually love this show so much. I get it and it gets me. You just have to have an open mind. If you're confused just read a review or a recap and it will proof read your thoughts.

This is legion and either you love it for the risks it takes that no show does today, or just play on the phone while a TV show is on. This series requires you to pay attention to it

heres hoping that it stays at this level of quality!
