This, for me, easily beats out any comic adaptation on TV right now. While I'm sure Defenders will be good, and I can't make a call on Inhumans, Legion is probably going to be my favorite comic adaptation on TV for 2017.

I doubt Fox can use SWORD.

I mean it is a co-production, but yeah the rights for something that recent would be iffy. But they did use Darwin and Angel Salvadore so!

Ugh, we're gonna have to wait till 2019 but I'm already loving the idea of Plaza and Clement as on-the-run mutant cohorts.

Depending on where they go with it, it was kinda lame by itself.

That was obviously the "Equinox" the government guy ordered to be sent in.

I wonder what the "Peacemaker" was... a nuke?

Fantastic series. 9.5/10

Just beats out Daredevil for the top spot (for superhero comic book television).

Plaza went full Beetlejuice in this episode, and it was pretty great. And Dark Side of the Moon is always appreciated.

I know it's far too early to speculate on extras, but I hope the home release of the first season has some great behind the scenes content. A show with these kind of effects on a TV budget, I'm very curious about hearing the story behind that outside of just reading articles.

And if I had to guess, maybe Amy was just kept tucked away since Division Three still might have been looking for her as well.

Not only am I excited to see more Aubrey, but we'll get to see her with Oliver as well, probably two of the most interesting characters on the show. So 2018 can't get here fast enough.

Oh, I didn't even realize Legion was coming back that soon. Well, good. Hope this show has either a panel or some air time at FX's Comic Con panel this summer.

Hawley said he hopes to be back next year so unless he takes on even more work I feel like we will be back very soon. He's still at work on Fargo S3 though so who knows if he will have stuff for the summer.

That was a great finale. I like that Hamish Linklater got a lot of time.

And it is kinda amusing that Shadow King isn't just the big bad of the season, but actually makes it out. Also seems like the episode in general just didn't want to be the traditional final episode. And we get to keep Aubrey Plaza for S2 so that's a win.

As much as I loved this season, this last episode felt more like a mid-season finale. Still great fun, and hopefully David starts picking up some actual personalities and becomes Legion at some point.

Yeah, I've been thinking a classic Floyd tune would fit in so well in this show (and even more with one character named Syd Barrett), so I really loved hearing that intro to Breathe.

Well, it's gonna be a long wait for season two. S01 was fantastic.

it was a good wrap to an amazing season. Very unique in its story telling and vision of mental illness. I'm excited for season two and what Hawley has in store for the next year. Whatever it is I'm confident I'll be amazed, after three amazing seasons of tv.

Well, David's last line of the episode was what I said too...

Great ending.

I didn't think that Melanie's team looked like the bad guys.

It's the first time they've actually held the upper hand, probably in their entire recent history.

That ain't even a question. I've enjoyed all the Netflix shows to varying degrees (even parts of Iron Fist), but this is so clearly operating on a higher plain. With this and Fargo, Hawley is entering into the Vince Gilligan echelon of showrunners. The best of the best.

I would agree with this wholeheartedly, it's one of the best shows on television period. No need to categorize it any other way, just one of the best out there.
