  • Legion to Premire on April 3rd

    I happen to be reading the gigantic Chris Claremont X-Men Compendium 1, and I had just read Charles Xavier's first contact with Amahl Farouk in Cairo.  They cribbed a lot from that 1978-1979 comic book for the psychic battle.  Was pretty cool.  If the Shi'ar turns into something, Hawley's definitely a Claremont fan.  

    We get A LOT of plot in this episode compared to the premiere, which was pretty much the perfect choice as far as pacing goes. 

    This is just such a fun show to watch and try to pick things out from. From the way David, Oliver and Lenny were all using their backup dancers as psychic weapons in last week’s episode to all the hexagon imagery and now to this future timeline plot- such an engaging way to watch TV, all while trying to reach into the deep parts of my brain where all the X-Men knowledge is piled up to see if I can put any of this together.

    I usually have to rewatch the episode to try to make sense of anything. The one thing I don't love about Legion and David Hawley's direction is the mixing of the Marvel universe and the new stuff created for the show. Like Syd/Ptonomy ect were created for the show but others ie shadow king/david/Shi'ar mention are from the Marvel universe. It makes it hard to know if the answers will be comic based or something new.

    Listened to the podcast.   I thought the actress playing Chrisjen is one of the better things about the show, actually.
