FX‘s Legion: Season 1, Episode 1: Chapter 1 is the best kind of weird. It is a lot like a student art film with a hefty production budget. And that is a good thing.
Legion uses the mental state of our lead character David Haller (Dan Stevens) as a key visual element. It makes the viewers’ experience equally as unstable.
Legion is also vastly different from any Marvel product we’ve seen cinematic or television related. Our hero, who isn’t much of a hero at this point, is teetering on the edge of sanity. The many years of dealing with his “condition” have left him isolated and alone.
