First episode was good – definitely interesting and you need to pay attention to follow it. Well acted for the most part, so hoping it builds from here!

This show got my head spinning a couple of time in the beginning but as it progressed I was hooked to see what's next. I just hope the rest of the episodes can follow up and not be canceled as I fall in love with it. The human mind is a beautiful thing.

2nd episode review.

Short version:
mind blowing.

Long version:
There really isn't any way to do Bill Sienkiewicz visuals in live action. At least not any way which would look at all good. This show doesn't try, but every now and then there are touches, weird flashes of camera angle and lighting, which give a disquieting echo of the look of the comics. It is awkward and unnerving and perfect.

So very much of this show is awkward and unnerving. Even once it's clear that David has powers, not mental health issues, the show does an amazing job of showing how the world must look to a schizophrenic. It's definitely the atmosphere, not the story line or characters which will keep me coming back to it.

Not that those are lacking in any way. The characters are quirky. The story is interesting (if slow moving). The world is intriguing. It's definitely not the Claremont story (David's father was an astronomer, he has a sister... Professor X doesn't seem to have any connection at all), or at least the serial numbers have been filed off (Syd certainly seems to have Rogue elements to her after all). I expect massive divergence from the source material to continue.

Which is good. I look forward to this show being it's own thing. It's going to be an interesting story.

Jesus is this show good, nobody is more surprised then I am to write that. the acting writing and direction is all top notch. The subtle and overt disorientation caused by utilizing the unreliable narrator adds to the creepy unsettling vibe of the show. I highly recommend Legion.

Ming Blowing i think the guys from the heroes series could learn a thing or two on this one. This should be the new standard on how to build a superhero these days. the devil is always in the detail.

This show is a Marvel adaptation but gives off a different feeling than most of the other television series that are set in the same universe. Based on the first episode, it has superb style and the plot seems to be both well constructed and intriguing.
