Storyline

Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 20's and free once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of daily life: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change.

Trivia

Noah Hawley had hinted at the possibility of Charles Xavier appearing in the series ever since season one. Patrick Stewart had said that he would "absolutely 100%" reprise his role on the show if given the chance despite previously claiming that Logan (2017) would be his last time portraying the character. However, Hawley decided to focus on a much younger Xavier and Harry Lloyd was cast instead. See more »

This is what great TV programming is!
2 March 2017 | by glormmartinSee all my reviews

This is a very different show. It's unique, well acted and the pacing is great. The writing and story development is intelligent and sophisticated. You're not spoon fed, but required to think about what plays out and motivated to discover the depths of the characters. A fun ride and worth the watch! Wish there was more quality programming like this.
