Legi¤n episode one

Oh ... man ... I freakin' loved this!!!

The direction was just incredible. A little hectic at times, okay, really hectic at times, but such an amazing job by all involved. This series may in-fact slide into the very limited and super selective "Watch it live" part of my television viewing. I hate watching anything live as the commercials drive me crazy; it's like monthly comics vs trades, the interruptions in flow, when not dictated by me, infuriate.  Cheesy Grin

Truth be told, while the wife will usually give "comic shows" at least a try, she was really excited to watch this as it starred Mathew from Downton Abbey  Cheesy She also ended up really liking it as well, which will help my "watch it live" effort.

good use of transition between realities.

Heard that as well, though I kinda hope not as I like this being as far removed as can be from the rest of continuity ... like the time in which this all takes place thing.
Everything looks like mid 60's but they have hella tech as well (at least with monitors and laptops) I also heard it
could be MOJO
which I damn sure hope not.

But yes, after three episodes, this is my new favorite show, for now  Grin

I love how they keep
splitting a lot of the shots or sets/scenes in two halves, like the brain. Heck in this past episode three we see it really well with that real bright light on the left side of the scene with a real dark view on the other when they are walking around for Halloween. We get it about 9 or 10 times an episode (along with the eyes ... have you noticed the two eyes everywhere. From lights to just circles, everything looks like eyes  Cool)

EDIT - Wringer!! (and others that have seen the show ... and if you haven't what the heck is up with you?  Grin Wink)

Check out this indepth look at the show, if you want to see that sort of thing. They are not really spoilers per se, but do make you see the show a tad differently after you view them  Grin But yeah, watch ... and learn ... if you dare ...

if you decide to dive further ... Episode Two HERE

I forgot all about this show coming on!  Just checked and fortunately the first three episodes are On Demand.  Just set them to download to my DVR.  I'm glad it's good - can't wait to check it out.

This show ... THIS SHOP !!!!!!

Just finished episode 6 and came to the sad realization that there are only two more left to air.

It is looking more and more like this is ... and please don't look if you haven't watched, as this is a huge spoiler, if true ... but it is looking like this is
indeed the Shadow King as the baddie. But ya know, as much as I didn't really want that to be the case, they have done it, again, if true, so well, I can't complain one bit. Really love this guy/gal  Wink and it is truly creepy when he is on the screen.

Also so glad this was not on FOX and instead went to the "lower" station FX. There is no way FOX would have done this show this way. They would have spelled out, over worked it with too much exposition, not allowed the craziness and certainly wouldn't have got to see bare butt  Wink. Man, with TV Fargo 3 coming around the corner, I love this channel.

I just finished Ep 6 right now.

I ...am not giving this show it's due diligence. Or I'm always tired when I watch it. Or I watch it too spaced out from each ep (the wife has zero interest in it, I don't watch it in front of the tyke, and everyone mumbles and bumbles all dialogue which drives me UP THE F***ING WALL because I have to have the volume up so high!!!!)

BUT

I'm just not into it anymore. After ep 6, I'm really just at the feeling of 'get to the point already' Each ep has gotten slower and slower, and for me, been less of a mind trip each time I watch. Hell, I don't even know any character's name. At all. Except Bennie/Not Bennie. (Yes, I know David Haller. Comics! Grin)

I'm rather like "I get it. There's a fantasy, there's a reality, sometimes he crazy in both, sometimes not crazy in either." Show me something a bit more interesting.

BUT

this is a bit kneejerk immediate reactions as I just finished an ep at 10:10 at night, I'm tired, and well, I haven't been as captivated by this as I was for the first 3 eps.

Hopefully I can finish it in the next 2 days and change my opinion.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

WOW. I honestly have nothing to say here other than I am utterly and completely shocked.

This show was flat out amazing (for me  Wink) All the hidden gems, all the creep, all the imagery, all the style. One of, if not the best show of the year. Although I think Noah's season 3 of Fargo was also an incredible piece of television and could give it a run for reasons different than those I loved about Legion.

Damn, sorry you are not diggin' it  Cry

I can only guess that this is another peek into our overall differences, Jimmy.  Wink Smiley Cool

Finally finished it.

It just wasn't for me.

It grabbed me less and less as the episodes went on.

I didn't want an X-men explosion super powered fight. That wasn't it. I just wasn't interested in anyone around David at all. It happened with a visual pacing that I know I do not enjoy from other similar type works.

This is not me saying it's a bad show. FAR from it!!! I truly can recognize when something is done very well. But it's not a show that fits in my wheelhouse.

I'll still watch season 2.

And I still have my shocked face on.
 Grin

It is great having differences in taste, surely, but man I also don't enjoy when something I find so delectable, so artistically sound, is not loved by all as it is me.

Ya get me?

I do get why you don't bow down to the greatness I find within those episodes  Cheesy Cheesy, but I still feel a tad sad about you not getting the enjoyment that I get.

I know that sounds selfish in a way, in a strange way, but I do mean it to be in the opposite.
