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.

Whoever wrote & directed this show is on some seriously hardcore drugs. The characters are interesting, but if it doesn't get on with a storyline that the average viewer can follow, it's going to die. I was surprised to see it got picked up for a second season. Personally, I like the show, but this is too "out there" for most viewers.

Good show, surprised it was only 8 episodes but at least it is renewed already for season 2 in 2018.

I F****ING LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!! Every new show since the dawn of tv shows the first few episodes explain who each character is. then explain the the main character and so the confusion is what he is experiencing and we are to see what he sees in order to understand his confusion. if ppl would give it a chance and pay attention to the show And watch it all you would get a hang of it. if they don't show the confusion in his head then how are you to know what he is seeing or isn't seeing. You cant see or understand everything that went on without going through it with him. Just watch it, the confusion goes away I don't want to spoil it I'm explaining it in different ways In case one help one person as another would help another person and cause I've been doing it my whole life cause my explanations suck lol but for real please watch it from pilot to finale you will understand

I loved episodes 2 and 3 too but then started getting confused and frankly annoyed after that. The writing is kind of erratic and hit and miss. I saw the writer on one of the late night talk shows last night and learned that he writes for this show and for Fargo at the same time. When asked about the UFO at the end of the last season on Fargo, he really didn't have a good answer for that and kind of sounded like "Oh that" about it. I still like both shows but am concerned about a head writer who doesn't think odd scenes need to be explained or developed. So, I expect that Legion will have some amazing episodes surrounded by other confusing and disappointing ones.

I actually hated the first episode and decided not to watch future episodes. Out of boredom, I found myself continuing to watch. After watching episode 2 and 3, the show again grabbed my attention and I'm hooked. Weird, but entertaining show.

This is what I consider to be Tier 1 television. The special effects are riveting and every scene is interesting. I don't mind that it takes weeks for the essential elements of the story to unfold when each scene is so captivating. The lead actor is perfect for this part and plays the role flawlessly. If I had to, I would easily dump 2 or 3 other Tier 2 and 3 shows that usually watch for a show of this quality.
