All eight episodes from the first season of the sci-fi thriller based on the Marvel Comics character Legion. David Haller (Dan Stevens) was diagnosed as a young boy with schizophrenia and spent his life in psychiatric hospitals. While a patient at Clockworks Hospital, David has an encounter with Sydney Barrett (Rachel Keller), a young girl with mutant powers, who suggests to him that he might not actually be ill; he might be a mutant. As government agents interrogate him to find out who he really is, David battles with the reality that he could be the most powerful mutant who ever lived.

Apparently Legion (aka David) is an obscure X-Men character but this doesn't really have a super hero-ey feel & nor is any knowledge of the comics needed (I didn't have any & I love it!). David is confined to a mental institution & believes everyone who has told him that he is mad but he may also be the worlds' most powerful psychic. A lot of the action happens within David's own mind & at first it's unclear how much is real & even whether certain characters are actually exist or whether they're figments of his mind. On top of that, series creator Noah Hawley says the sets & costumes were designed with a '60's Tomorrow's World 'what the world will look like in the future' kind of vibe too. So it does get pretty trippy. But surprisingly in an age where more conventional series than this one often have ambiguous endings, all is actually explained by the end.
This is an incredibly imaginative series on all levels. For example, one particularly memorable sequence is shot in the style of an old silent movie but apparently the cast weren't told this while it was being filmed, as it was only decided afterwards in post-production. And the cast really go for it too - Aubrey Plaza in particular dives head-first into the strangeness & seems to be having the most fun, ever!
The acting is superb, there's a large helping of quirky humour, the sets, costume & scripts are divine. It's just perfect! Can't believe I'm saying this but I like Legion even more than Westworld & Game Of Thrones!
I wasn't sure what to expect at first and it took me a few episodes to figure out what the -bleep- was going on, but once I did I was hooked.
