legion series premiere

Let’s get the high praise out of the way first: it’s rare for a television pilot to feel as fresh and weird and fully formed as Legion, which feels more like the first 70 minutes of a particularly daring X-Men movie than the first chapter of an ongoing series airing on FX. There is a distinctive personality on display here, a carefully modulated tone that folds horror and dark comedy and mindfuckery into the typical superhero structure. It doesn’t shatter the mold, but it leaves a giant crack in it – I literally have no idea what to expect from the next episode and man-oh-man, is that a nice feeling.

And it looks like we’ll be covering Legion on a weekly basis from here on out, with all other spoiler reviews arriving the morning after the new episode airs. Hi. Like the show itself, these reviews aren’t going to follow a rigid structure. We’re just going to pick up the threads of interest and run with them until we can figure out exactly what kind of show we’re dealing with here.

legion promos

A batch of new Legion promos have been released, meaning we get to see more of actor Dan Stevens looking bug-eyed, paranoid, and all-around awesome in FX’s upcoming series. The star of The Guest and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast remake is a considerable part of Legion‘s appeal. Yes, it’s run by Fargo creator Noah Hawley, which is reason enough to check out the series, but Stevens is one of those actors you want to keep an eye on. Since he continues to impress in a wide variety of roles, we’re excited to see him bring his versatility to FX’s new show.

Below, watch some new Legion promos.

Dan Stevens in Legion trailer

Stories about folks with superpowers have become so ubiquitous that it’s easy to forget how bonkers the entire concept is. If you pause to think about it, it’d be completely bizarre for a boy in Queens to gain spider senses. It’d be insane for an actual, living alien baby to crash down in Kansas. And so on, and so forth. So it’s nice to see Legion is injecting some much-needed weirdness back into the genre.

A spinoff of Fox’s X-Men franchise, the FX drama centers on a young man named David Haller (Dan Stevens), who’s spent much of his life going in and out of psychiatric hospitals to treat what he believes is schizophrenia. But something happens, and he starts to wonder if the voices he’s been hearing in his head might be real after all. Comics fans will know that in the books, David is the son of Professor X and that David is himself a mutant with very interesting powers. But we’ll all have to wait and see how things pan out for the small-screen version of the character. Watch the Legion trailer below.
