A drama following a troubled young man who discovers he has psychic abilities.


David Haller was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child, resulting in him being in and out of psychiatric hospitals for most of his life. Now in his 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the structured regimen of hospital life that consists of eating, taking medications, and sleeping.

But David's routine is shaken up when a beautiful new patient arrives. Inexplicably drawn to each another, the two share a shocking encounter that makes David realize that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant.

David finds a way out of the hospital and meets a nurturing, but demanding, therapist who utilizes unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists open David's eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.

Well, finally the end.

Thank goodness.

I loved season 1, detested season 2 and found season 3 to be somewhere in between.

The high point for me was the sequence based on "Mother" the excellent track fron The Wall by Pink Floyd.

Otherwise, the series was a waste of time. For anyone who hasn't seen it, I recommend watching season 1 and forget about the rest. Maybe watch the final episode of season 3 for the music, but dont be deceived - I believe this is a waste of time, I only finished watching because I was intrigued to find out the conclusion.

This is not worthy of Marvel but it deserves the overall average rating of 3.9

I liked 1 and even 2 but 3 episodes into season 3 leaves me wondering who let these writers/directors just do their thing unsupervised?
Too bad because the actors were good. But the awesomeness of Legion in the comics cannot be translated into episode after episode of drug trip.

Terrible show. Complete disaster, not even remotely like the comic its supposed to be based on. This was just some terrible waste of money. Ruined the actually addition of Legion into the Marvel Universe. Its just some screwed up acid trip that fails to clearly represent what Legion was to the New Mutants. Did you even know he was the son of Professor Charles Xavier? No, they never told you. Glad to see this travesty is ending, maybe someone can do a proper reboot and focus more on the actual story then what you life is like after smoking Bathsalt laced in Meth and crushed up Ecstasy.

Liked season 1. At the end of each season 2 episode I found myself thinking "Wow, that is an hour of my life that I won't get back". So I starting taping episodes and then watching them in fast forward mode slowing down for those parts that appear to be coherent. I got a 1 hour episode down to 15 minutes this way! Big improvement.

"Was this related to the movie Legion with Paul B???????"

It would've taken you less time to look it up on something called "the internet" than the time it took you to type your idiotic question. I wouldn't be surprised if you're still waiting for your answer here.
And what's with the multiple question marks? It seems like a very urgent question that can be answered in under 10 seconds on IMDB.

Dumb people everywhere...

I agree that season 2 has become a lot more disjointed. Unlike season 1 most of season 2 is about the fight inside David's head for control of his abilities and ultimately the right to rule the world. The whole plot of season 1 about the government trying to wipe out the mutants just disappeared, along with some of the characters from season 1. Jean Smart, for example, hardly ever makes an appearance in season 2.

But each episode of season 2 has been artistically done with amazing visual images. There's no other show on TV like it. We've gotten the backstory on some major characters, with a surprising amount of pathos thrown in. What happened to David's sister, for example, wouldn't have had nearly the same impact on any other series. I'm never sure of what's really going on, but slowly the episodes are coming together to tell a story. But you have to pay attention and that's gotta be killing the ratings.

Loved, loved, loved the first season! This season? Not so much. I feel like they are trying to be so "out there" that the plot is suffering. I finally took it off my DVR.

Really love watching this show. I have to agree with a lot of people who are saying that it has become really hard to follow. I find I need to watch most of the episodes more than once to make sure I understand what the heck is going on.
