I didn't know quite what to make of this show at first. It was kind of slow to get going and was a bit weird and trippy. After watching the second ep, I've decided that i'm really digging it! really enjoying the style of this series so far, especially the late 60's/early 70's vibe it has. Not sure if it's supposed to take place then, though or if this is just the look?
It's a neat mix of sci-fi with a bit of creepy weirdness thrown in. What's the deal with that, umm...guy he keeps seeing? Is he another mutant or just a product of his mind? I guess it could be either since in the comics, Legion has tons of multiple personalities, each with their own mutant power. I don't know if that's where they're going with here since he seems to have Jean Grey type abilities in this series.

I've been catching up on this show and can I just say this has to be one of the coolest TV scenes ever?

I haven't been following it (kinda having X-fatigue). But this got my attention:

I knew I had seen a thread about this show!

 

I just finished season one this past weekend. I'd go right on to season 2 if FX didn't have ridiculous blackout periods.

 

(I was also so, so very high while watching this, which I recommend)

 

Dan Stevens was unrecognizable. I don't remember him being heavy before, but he makes his Downton Abbey self look obese. And holy crap he plays crazy well.

 

Aubrey Plaza is perfection.

 

Jemaine Clement was a HUGE SURPRISE.

 

I may actually have to pay for a season pass to get to season 2 faster than Hulu gets to it.

I loved season 1. Dad's illness and subsequent death kept me from watching Season 2 yet but I have it saved on DVR

You're farther ahead on season 2 than I am if you have the ability to watch it but not the time or headspace.
