Legion, FX’s trippy new superhero drama set in the X-Men universe, premiered last week and continues tonight at 10:00 P.M. EST.
Created by Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, the new series takes place somewhere in the X-Men films’ continuity. The series focuses not on Wolverine or Professor X, but a lesser known mutant with extraordinary abilities named David Haller, who is desperately trying to figure out whether or not he’s insane.
Legion follows the story of Haller (played by Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens), a mental patient who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, who falls in love with a fellow patient, Syd Barrett (Rachel Keller), who then disappears under suspicious circumstances. Not only that, but Haller also discovers that after years of unexplained occurrences, hallucinations, nightmares, and visions, some of what he imagines may actually be reality.
Official Legion Synopsis:
David Haller is a troubled young man who was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child. He has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years and, now in his early 30s, finds himself institutionalized again. His daily routine — including therapy, taking medications and silently listening to talkative friend Lenny — is upended when troubled new patient Syd arrives, and they are inexplicably drawn to each other. After a startling encounter between the two, David confronts the possibility that the voices he hears and visions he sees may be real. He escapes from the hospital and seeks refuge with sister Amy, who wants to protect the picture-perfect suburban life she has established for herself. Syd eventually gets David involved with therapist Melanie Bird and her team of specialists, who open his eyes to a new world of possibilities.
So far, Legion has received widespread acclaim from all sorts of publications, so make sure you find out how to live stream it below!
