FIRST EPISODE = AWESOME AF.
I was hoping this would at least be OKAY but I am TRULY SHOCKED by just how INSANELY FANTASTIC it truly is...fucking WOW.
No bullshit, "Legion" is AT LEAST as good as Marvel's Netflix shows and absolutely DESTROYS "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," etc. WITHOUT QUESTION. It is THAT fucking great!
It never would've been my first choice for an X-Men TV spin-off but in hindsight it was BRILLIANT decision. The concept is not only inherently cinematic but also PERFECTLY suited to the long-format, episodic formula of the medium. (All puns intended!) Loving the fact that they get away with so much profanity and don't really have many commercial breaks yet, too. THIS SHOW IS SO FUCKING COOL. And I haven't even gotten into the music and psychedelia or the amazing cast and the SUPREMELY talented crew or its pedigree yet! OMFG, srsly.
But I don't want to spoil anything.
Just go in with an OPEN MIND and we'll talk later...
