When David returns to the place where it all began, he and Syd and Melanie Byrd’s team find themselves in a very familiar setting – a heightened version of the same mental institution from Legion (FX, Wednesdays, 10/9C): Episode 1.
When we left David Haller, he was unconscious while his girlfriend Syd Barrett and their fellow mutants – Melanie Bird and Ptonomy Wallace – had returned from their trip inside his mind with no apparent side effects.
In Chapter Four of FX’s Legion (Wednesdays, 11/10C), the search is to find David and bring him back to the ‘real’ world.
Legion (FX, Thursdays, 9/8C) is based on a mutant character from Marvel’s X-titles. In the comics, he’s the son of Professor Charles Xavier and has amazing mental abilities that he isn’t completely sure of and definitely not in complete control of.
FX Network finally brings honest to god Marvel mutants to television in their latest project – Legion, which premieres February 8th. I generally love FX programming. They aren’t afraid to push the envelope and go off kilter. The problem with FX shows is they all start very slow and usually take 3 or 4 episodes before they manage to suck you in. They require a lot of patience before things start paying off. Its intellectual television disguised as popcorn entertainment. I know this is a weird statement but work with me.
Noah Hawley’s take on Marvel mutants, FX drama Legion – now has a premiere date and a nifty new trailer.
How nifty is the trailer? Melanie bird (Jean Smart) is seen telling series lead David Heller (Dan Stevens) that he’s been fed a string of lies regarding his mental condition – and that’s just the start!
Legion will premiere on Wednesday, February 8, 2017. The nifty new trailer follows the break. – along with more details on the series.
Moments ago, FX premiered the first trailer for Legion, the Marvel-inspired series about David Haller – a man who is forced to consider the possibility that he’s not schizophrenic and that the voices in his head are real.
