Legion (FX Series)

Anyone watch the pilot episode last night?

Holy shit this was a head trip of a show! I thoroughly enjoyed my brain being violated in trying to figure out what was really happening. I'm not entirely convinced that I did figure it out.

Noah Hawley (the excellent Fargo series) is behind this show. I do hope that they are able to maintain the level of quality throughout the season.

Dan Stevens is clearly making himself known lately after his stint on Downton Abbey.
He is perfection in Legion. I watched the first episode twice. Holy crap, this is one psychological ride on the cerebral train. Loved it.
Hawley is really taking this superhero stuff in a different direction.

This is easily my favorite show on TV right now. Each episode just ups the WTF-factor higher and higher.
I found myself saying "Holy shit!" out loud multiple times this last episode - a trait that I hope continues.

The finale was the weakest episode of the season... and was still a great episode!!

My favorite line from season 1: "You ever try to un-make soup?"

very Zen-Buddhist, sounds like something a David Carradine character would say in a Kung-fu movie
