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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

If you've jumped off the ride at some point over the past two years, do yourself a favour and hop back on the merry-go-round for this final season of Legion.

In a more just world, Legion would be the stuff of conversations at water coolers, or wherever people gather to discuss the amazing these days.

Its final season premiere advances the plot while swimming in pure psychedelia. Trippy but not senseless... the real fun is in deciphering the plot puzzles, verbal games and visual clues as the storyline hurtles towards finally doing some time travel.
June 26, 2019
The loopy digressions are as vivid as ever... But there's also solid character development, inventive depictions of mutant powers, a delightful bit of mime from Bill Irwin and at least one genuine narrative surprise.
June 26, 2019
PowerPoint surrealism hiding a total lack of imagination. Deaths don't matter, as the timeline fractures across illusions and flashbacks. There's yet another toothy shadow monster. David's face appears on lunchboxes: Mmmm, yessss, ironic merchandise.

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.

The third season of "Legion" is one of those experiences where even after two stellar seasons you cannot believe [Noah] Hawley and his colleagues have the guts to try and pull off one unexpected moment after another.

There are enough hallucinogenic thrills in Legion's third season to keep the rest of it from falling apart, even as time travel threatens to force the characters to do that very thing.
June 25, 2019
[Noah] Hawley's faithfulness to being as weird and infuriating as possible until the end is admirable. And when it's working, as it does so often throughout season 3, it's easy to get swept up in the freewheeling creativity of it all.

Legion is weird for weird's sake and seems content to do that right up to the end.
June 24, 2019
Legion proves that a more out-of-the-box approach to aesthetic, narrative, and perspective can offer so much more, and that superpowers don't always mean muscles.
June 24, 2019
Legion remains an intoxicating experience laced with a grand sense of wonder. The humorous touches are every bit as clever as the visual treats. The performances are every bit as compelling as the production team's command of the narrative.
June 24, 2019
Even if "Legion" isn't the sum of its parts, some of those parts are spectacular on their own.
