I give the premiere nine and a half existential crises out of one yellow bus.

Can I please have another, sir? There's only so much a Switch can do in two hours. On/off. On/off.

Dun dun dun!

Bedtime is here.

Did that Japanese Time Traveller make anyone else think they needed to save the Cheerleader?

Strange connections and great cinematography

And a musical interlude too

Due to other obligations, I didn't see the episode last night.

Well, that's not true. I made it to the opening scene (zebra plane) and then had to do other things.

Hopefully, I will post tomorrow about Episode 2.

Can't wait! Also? Can't believe it's the final season. :(

Now that Disney has unified the Marvel Universe, I don't think we are going to see much more like this .... and let's face it, it's not like the CW is going to be pushing this for the DC Universe.

"Next of the CW, Supergirl and a bunch of Beautiful People(tm) find that their egos melt away into the astral plane as they begin to question the nature of reality!"

to be fair we don't get much of this kind of story telling anywhere on TV, its not just Disney The Legion character is somewhat unique in that aspect of his disassociation from reality

Banshee. Okay, maybe not. But that was wicked cool, and no one watched it.
I watched it. I liked it. But there really was no substance. It was the prime definition of style over everything else.

Banshee is kinda like a telenovela, with more punching. So much punching.

Well Charles has made his appearance!!

I enjoyed episode 3, meeting Davids parents was both lovely and disturbing in its implications.

I have loved the entire run of Legion start to finish and during most of the 2nd and 3rd season episodes one of us in the room would end up saying "this is the best thing I have seen in FOREVER."

You can see the influences, particularly David Lynch. The difference though, is that David Lynch often goes weird and forgets that there's an interesting story to tell and that isn't true for Legion. With Legion, I felt like all of the weirdness would pay off and it definitely did. You can't feel like that with Lynch because he just wanders around and then suddenly stops.

That finish to Twin Peaks, for example, made me wish I wouldn't have bothered with any of it. Eyerolls all around.

But, I'm not here to bash, but to praise. Yes! Legion was excellent!

A satisfying ending seems to be luxury these days, and I am happy that Legion got one. It's one of those shows where I really could not have imagined how they were going to accomplish it. And yet they did.

I watched the season finale, too. It was satisfying, it did a few things I didn't expect, and a few things I don't necessarily like, but overall I was happy with the result.
Legion as a whole was pretty wonderful show. It is strange and weird, in a very entertaining way that keeps me wanting for more. It feels like an enriching experience, something you might not want every show to be, but you definitely don't want to miss having experienced. (Kinda the O.A. was for me, too, even if that is on many other levels very different)

So was Switch the Time traveller a new character or is she from the comics?

I did like the resolution between David and Syd being left unresolved though

This show was a mindblower, like atomic level mindblower. Every episode it felt like pieces of the gears in my mind were snapping off and falling into my brain. I do not remember one episode that did not make me think I was lucid dreaming for a bit.
