It’s incredibly hard to fathom the amount of time that has flown by because Legion: Season 1 has come to an end after a very swift eight weeks. Oddly enough, this was easily the most grounded episode of Legion yet and how fitting for finale night?
Legion has not only premiered its best episode yet, but one of the best episodes of television ever created. What a shame that there is still one episode left because there’s almost no way in the world that the finale will be as good as Chapter 7, but this show is full of surprises and who knows what kind of tricks Noah Hawley has up his sleeves?
Well, it APPEARED that Legion had its first bad episode, but of course with this show anything can happen within a matter of minutes. After getting to the end, this is definitely the weakest episode thus far, but that’s not really saying much because in the end this episode had multiple layers beneath what was on the surface.
Lenny, Lenny, and did I say Lenny? Episode 5 is by far the most confusing chapter of Legion, but for all the right reasons. Even though this episode is difficult to follow, there are many revelations that came out of it. BUT as always with an episode of Legion, there are still so many questions and of course what’s an episode of Legion without a massive cliffhanger?
Nobody was ready for tonight’s episode of Legion. Somehow it has outdone itself and the show is not even at its halfway point. Wednesday nights have become the new Friday nights because of what Noah Hawley and his creative team are doing with this source material. On a side-note, if the video game Bioshock is ever adapted into a film, call Noah Hawley and let him direct it immediately!
Legion: Chapter 3 continues to dazzle with unique storytelling and as always takes us even further into David’s psyche because this episode was all about trying to find out what exactly makes this guy “tick.”
FX’s Legion continues to impress with daring visuals and nonlinear storytelling. This episode was written once again by Noah Hawley, and directed by Michael Uppendahl, who is not foreign to directing episodes for television shows that premier on FX.
Legion has reinvented the superhero genre and the world has only been exposed to the first episode. Noah Hawley, the creator of the highly successful anthology series Fargo, has crafted a mind-bending (no pun intended) experience to say the least.
