    This show is pretty interesting so far. Almost like a slightly David Lynch-esque superhero series about Professor Xavier's son. Very different and highly recommended imo, even if it is really strange.

    Yeah, I'm loving it so far. Just hope it all makes sense in the end and doesn't do a Lost and turn to shite

    I was feeling superhero fatigue in general but I gave this a shot and it's definitely worth it. One of the most ambitious shows in terms of look since Hannibal and it's got some great humour in it. It's also reasonably intriguing. which is nice.

    Reminds me of season 1 of Utopia a bit too


    edit: he's not Xavier's son in this

    Watched the first episode but I wasn't convinced, it had some interesting ideas but I didn't particularly like most of the cast. Might give it another chance at a binge watch later down the line if I hear good things from trusted sources

    Not so far. It's by far the best superhero series there is though imo and its only two episodes in. Shits on Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones imo.

    I love the contrast between the first two episodes. Number one is flash boom bang, and number two is literally more cerebral.

    Had been watching the first one on the train and actually gasped out loud and clamped my hand over my mouth during the 'pen' scene. Got some WTF looks, but IDGAF cuz that shit was epic.

    I didn't like Jessica Jones because I found it relentlessly grim. I did quite enjoy Luje Cage though. It's got a lighter vibe, he's more likeable and a killer pseudo blaxploitation soundtrack.

    Seems like he could be according to Google but I thought I heard the showmakers complaining about problems with rights for using Xavier

    Fox own the rights to all the X-Men characters so I don't think that is an issue.


    I think Fox confirmed that Legion is not set in the same 'Universe' as their other X-Men films/series so you shouldn't expect anyone familier to appear.


    Liking it a lot so far.

    yeah thats what i meant to say really, got the vibe that they would keep it seperate to film characters.

    anyway, enjoying the show regardless

    I think they'll probably reference him at some point because it's a pretty important part of his identity as a character, but I doubt he'll ever make an appearance.
