We’ve got about a year before the second season of Legion, which will likely have 10 episodes and debut in spring 2018. Legion positioned itself as one of the most artful and unique superhero shows on television, where our hero discovered his abilities and faced the monster inside him. There are plenty of ways the…
Legion has finished its first season on an even higher note than where it started, and this show started pretty damn high. The episode took its time, but it grew into a gripping, terrifying, and gorgeous hour of television. And what’s more, it’s set up a fantastic follow-up.
The fourth episode of Legion is a complete mind-fuck, to put it mildly. It answers a couple of questions, asks about 30 dozen more, and leads you to doubt everything that’s ever happened on the series so far. If the previous episode made us feel like we were finally safe and sound, this episode just gave us a giant…
David might’ve just arrived at Summerland, the superhero mutant camp, but playtime is officially over. Someone’s life is on the line, and our heroes are charging into David’s most painful memories to get him ready for war. But something evil lurks inside him, and it’s clawing at the gates to get out.
The premiere episode of Legion was about driving all of us to the brink of insanity, so getting a chance to rest and refresh in the mutant resistance’s superhero camp seems like it would just what David needs. But something very fishy seems to be going on in Summerland...
On the plus side, showrunner Ryan Murphy didn’t make us spend months guessing what the new season’s theme was going to be. Unfortunately, now that we know, we’re going to be nauseous every time we think about it.
Legion isn’t going to make people believe in heroes, because it’s not a show about being super. It’s a complex, twisted look at a man who struggles with feeling powerless, even as he discovers he’s the strongest mutant in the world. But, that might make it one of the most powerfully entertaining shows on television.
Tomorrow, FX launches its first X-Men-inspired TV show: Legion, which follows the seemingly indescribable life of David Haller, a man who thinks he either has vast psychic powers or he’s going insane. But despite some major ties to equally major X-Men characters, Haller—a.k.a. Legion—is relatively unknown. Here’s what…
Legion is a TV show that is so out there and complicated that its cast isn’t quite sure how to describe it. Thankfully, executive producer Noah Hawley seems to know what’s going on, even if no one else does.
We’ve known for awhile that American Horror Story would return for a seventh season. Today came the news that Ryan Murphy’s anthology horror show has received two more seasons on top of that.
It used to be—back when the easiest superhero joke was to make fun of Adam West’s Batman—that everyone fretted over making more realistic superheroes. Okay, I say “used to,” but we all know that the fear of making something campy has never, ever left most studios’ psyches. FX’s Legion, however, isn’t interested in…
While the first trailer from FX’s Legion focused on David Haller’s mental instability, this one spends a lot of time explaining what the government’s doing and how the fight against them is shaking out. That is, of course, assuming that all the things said in this trailer are real and not just David’s hallucinations.
Wanna see a name lose all meaning?
It’s been over a year since we learned the long-awaited adaptation of Bryan K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s beloved Vertigo comic series Y: The Last Man was really happening. But with scarce news about the promised TV show since, we’d started to wonder if we’d ever see it. Today, things took an encouraging turn.
There’s seemingly nothing Ryan Murphy loves to do more than drop hints about what might happen on American Horror Story. Recently, we heard that Lady Gaga’s witchy Roanoke character would return in the future, and now we have a better idea of what else that future might entail—a big ol’ crossover that makes up an…
Fans of American Horror Story know that the fun of the show is scanning new episodes for references to other seasons—like when Lady Gaga’s character in Hotel visited the Murder House. My Roanoke Nightmare has also turned up its share of Easter eggs, and Ryan Murphy just confirmed another one involving Lady Gaga.
Emphasis on the crazy, as this great new promo for the show about David Haller—the incredibly powerful telepathic and telekinetic mutant who may or may not be Professor X’s son—so ably demonstrates. It was accompanied by a release date for the show, which will premiere this February.
Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement is trading in his singing pipes for another mutant superpower. It was announced online that Clement is joining the cast of Legion in a multi-episode role.
Grab yourself a bear claw and a blue cocktail, preferably served in a goldfish bowl. Sure, we had a feeling this was coming—PHRASING—but FX’s animated spy comedy Archer will end after its 10th season. We’ll still be getting three more seasons, but they will only run eight episodes each.
American Horror Story’s sixth season began with creator Ryan Murphy promising to answer “the question that’s been haunting everybody.” Obviously, he meant the secret theme, which turned out to be My Roanoke Nightmare. But it turns out the execution of the theme is far more interesting... but not necessarily good.
