Tv Season Info

"Legion" focuses on "David Haller," a troubled young man who was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child. Shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next, in his early 30s, David met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named "Syd." After a startling encounter with her, he was forced to confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real. With the help of Syd and a team of specialists who also possess unique and extraordinary gifts ? "Ptonomy Wallace", "Kerry Loudermilk" and "Cary Loudermilk" ? David unlocked a deeply suppressed truth: he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power.

Critic Reviews for Legion Season 3

Even if "Legion" isn't the sum of its parts, some of those parts are spectacular on their own.

Legion uses visuals, editing, music and sound better than almost any series on television. And I don't just mean any series now -- I mean ever.

A zany, well stylized and brilliantly shot series as we've come to expect, but I have to say the ending was a little anti-climactic...

Legion wasn't ever going to be a show with a traditional happy ending. But maybe this is as close as it gets.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

I responded to moments of Legion because I vibed with its project, but all of the aspects of that project ended up working better in other shows.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Legion's third season premiere is as quirky and whimsical as you want it to be.

Jul 22, 2019 | Rating: 7.3 | Full Review…

Season Two wandered aimlessly until not even the pretty pictures were enough to justify the muddled storytelling. This third and final season mostly returned to that original, effective balance.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

As always, Legion is dazzling on a visual level. It plays with frame ratio, color, mood, tone, and sound with wild abandon. This season gave us entrancing sequences.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

If this first episode is any indication, we are in for a wild ride during the final season of FX's Legion.

Jul 22, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I know Legion has never been afraid to get silly, but I laughed every single time the tactical assault team pulled out a giant hook to grab that guy. Every. Single. Time.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 3

  • Sep 14, 2019
    Legion was the best show on television. The actors, visuals, music and adaptation to the X-Men characters were incredible. The only thing keeping me from giving a full 5 star rating? There won't be a season 4. Outstanding series.
  • Sep 12, 2019
    Looking for something good and different? Watch this! Such an excellent and original TV show. Visually speaking: this is grandiose! This show is different from what we are used to watch in many ways, and in a good way!

    Utterly Brilliant, Great story line superb casting and a good ending . Who could ask for more
  • Aug 24, 2019
    in a world where I never wanted to see certain finals, Legion gives us a season that is a bit subdued but worthy of a splendid theatrical saga
  • Aug 24, 2019
    Enjoyed every second of season 3, the new elements of this show brought the whole character to a new higher level right in the beginning. It is truly a masterpiece and a classic that many moons later people will still come back for more.
  • Aug 24, 2019
    Absolutely genius! One of the best comic book adaptations and most unique and original series you'll ever see.
  • Aug 22, 2019
    A work of mind-bending art.
  • Aug 21, 2019
    One of the best tv shows out there. David Lynch meets Stanley Kubrick.

    The final season of Legion was... interesting. This was already arguably the best looking show on television. Creator Noah Hawley moves to the next level as he once again outdoes himself creatively. The world of Legion is so bizarre at points, but so wonderful to look at. David (Dan Stevens) is the leader of a hippie cult in this and a lot is done with this trippy motif. There is a new threat that is one of the show's best. The plot like the rest of the show is interesting, including some choice revelations. However, Hawley tries too hard to be clever and his fantastic ideas often derail the story. Things are less cohesive than the last two seasons. There is another stand-alone episode that is inventive, but really takes away from the main plot and wasn't really necessary. This episode is especially frustrating considering the reduced episode count this season. Only David and Syd (Rachel Keller) really have much of a focus. The supporting cast feels thrown to the side even more than last season. The final episode, well it isn't bad, but I think a lot of viewers will be expecting more from it. I don't regret the ride, but ideally I wanted a little more out of this.

    Legion's narrative may not wholly satisfy, but its independence and creativity compared to other television offerings make it a worthwhile trip.
