    Legion follows David Haller (Dan Stevens), the schizophrenic son of X-Men head Charles Xavier. Confined to a mental institution for much of his life, David finally finds a source of hope in a fellow patient, who leads him to believe that the “crazy” visions he’s been experiencing might actually be real.

    Aubrey Plaza will also star as David’s friend Lenny, an optimistic sidekick despite being a big-time abuser of drugs and alcohol.

    Additionally, Jean Smart (Fargo) will co-star as Melanie, a “nurturing, demanding” therapist.

    ...but not set in FOX's X-Men film universe? Bah.

    ...but not set in FOX's X-Men film universe? Bah.

    Probably just as well though: the synopsis sounds like a world that hasn't quite experienced mutants. And that narrative ship already sailed by the mid 70s in the Film universe. A blank slate also means circumventing the frankly labyrinthine continuity Fox has mangled together.

    Plus, sounds like it might be a fairly dark adaptation, so not sure tying it explicitly to the Stewart / McAvoy version of Xavier would be a great idea. Will be interesting if indeed that familial tie will even exist, and if they cast a TV-version of Prof. X.

    trailer:


    That cut in the middle! :D


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 28,683 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Well it looks great; the description made it sounds like it might be pretty grim, and may yet be, but the trailer popped with bold colours and some decent compositions; you can see Noah Hawley 's hand (who i didn't realise was involved in this) that respect because it looks like it'll be a handsome production for sure

    New Trailer.

    Hrmmm, I thought I felt a bigger "wow" with the first trailer. This one feels like it's dampening expectations.


  • Registered Users Posts: 76,187 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    This will will premiere on FOX UK on Thursday, 9th February 2017 at 9pm, the day after the US premiere

    Ohh this looks like Heros to me! To be avoided like the plague!

    How does it look like 'Heroes' other than the very basic premise? And certainly the first trailer isn't like 'Heroes' at all. I'd have a lot of confidence on this - it's on cable to start with so much more creative freedom and 'Fargo' is a superb series so Hawley's involvement is definitely a bonus.

    That was truly amazing.


    Visually it was stunning the colour palette was so beautiful it felt like I was watching a living comic.




    It reminded so much of Patrick McGoohan's The Prisoner.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,131 ✭✭✭ GottaGetGatt


    This was fantastic stuff.So refreshing and the tunes were class.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,777 ✭✭✭ Brief_Lives


    That was wonderful stuff..
    Blown away actually..


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,830 ✭✭✭✭ Taltos


    Really enjoyed it. Bit drawn out in parts but overall great feel off it helped no end by the music...


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,085 ✭✭✭✭ Birneybau


    Really good.

    Anyone else get an air of 'Utopia' from it? The music, the visuals.

    Off to a brilliant start.


  • Registered Users Posts: 530 ✭✭✭ den87


    Thought it was fantastic,probably could've cut 10mins off it but still great stuff.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,810 ✭✭✭ JohnK


    I must be the only person who didnt like it from the sounds of things. I'll give it another episode or two but the pilot missed big time for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,953 ✭✭✭✭ alchemist33


    I enjoyed it but the surreality didn't really wash with me. If a programme isn't grounded in reality I find it hard to empathise with the characters. Still, that might change as David comes more into the (his) real world from the hospital/meds/perceived insanity


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Very enjoyable. Wish I could watch episode 2 straight away - it was just getting going.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,831 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    That was really cool!

    Need to see where it's going.

    Damn but yer man reminds me of
    how morph in 90s XMen was having trouble with reality

    Even how the first episode ends
    is kinda like how the first episode of 90s XMen went with a raid through a fence against baddies


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,780 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    I liked it.
    If went into it not knowing it was tied into the XMen franchise, I wouldn't have known at all until at least 20 mins in when they first said mutant.

    Hope the quality continues. Wonder what the others' powers are, apart from the guy who just throws everyone and everything


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 28,683 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Well that was ... ... something. I liked it, really liked it, and I particularly loved the bold striking colours throughout, but it was all so gleefully unhinged I felt like a somewhat bewildered passenger watching it. That was probably the point I guess, given David's precarious mental state.

    Anyone watch the first episode yet?

    Watched it last night. Amazing! New favorite show, hopefully they can keep it up for the 8 episodes

    Edit: thanks for the move. I did a search for Legion on boards but all that came up was WoW Legion for some reason, even recent posts.

    Anyway, new episode tomorrow/Thursday, can't wait!
