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.
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
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.
"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...
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.
