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.

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.

This show has gone off the deep end. It is just so weird now. They have to get it focused and build a story viewers want to see

One contributor put it so well - season 1 great, season 2 not great. It's just so disjointed and off the wall that little makes sense ep6 just doesn't add to the story at all for me.

I absolutely loved the first season and was excited when it got renewed. Sadly, I have not felt the same about this season and it sounds like I'm not the only one. The ratings keep falling and the rumor is it may be facing cancellation. I hope not because I'd like to see the show get back on track.
