Advent Day 23: Legion

IMO, Legion is the best comic product on 'regular' television (not including Netflix). Though based in the same universe as the XMen, it is not necessary to know anything about it, or about mutants. Written/produced by the same guy who does the Fargo series, and dealing with issues of mental illness, reality, and 'powers', it is a serious head-trip that keeps the view as uncertain as the main character, but that is what's so great about it. Its a show that requires paying attention to detail so some find it very confusing, but if you're up for the challenge...go for it :)

Awesome icons! I love the colors in the last one, second row.

The show makes such a great photographic/scenic use of color, lighting, mood and music...all supporting (or clashing with) David Haller/Legion's state of mind at any moment that it's incredible. Often the clues to what's happening in a scene, what is real and what is 'in his head' are found not in the dialogue or action but in the visual clues that paying attention to everything is almost impossible on one viewing ;)

That sounds awesome, actually! I'll have to ask my husband if he watches this - it sounds like it'd be right up his alley. :D

I know some people have found it difficult to follow...confusing...but its supposed to be. Given the majority of the superhero/mutanant fare on TV (which I'm not knocking) this to me feels very outside of the box. I was surprised at how much I loved it (and can't wait for Season 2 which I think starts in February *fingers crossed*)

Some shows can be like that and you have to have the time to sit and really pay attention, but I find that fascinating in a show. I'm going to have to find this now and watch it, too. :D
