See? And some of y'all thought this was it for the show because of the ratings, or it not being a very appealing show. FX knows what they like.

Now we can enjoy the final two episodes of the season.

In spite of my disappointment with season 2, its renewal is still good news. This show can get back on track, I know it.

I'll be honest, I didn't expect this show to be renewed, but I am very very happy that it is. Legion is like this flawed diamond, the type of series that just doesn't really want to play by the rules. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't, but either way it is always different than anything else on television right now. I'm a happy camper.

Series 2 just finished where I live so I finally feel safe to come here.

Holy ****! This is the best superhero show since Adam West Batman, it feels like sacrilege to say, but it might even be better.

Hawley is a ****ing genius!

I'm looking forward to series 3 more than any other superhero show or film.

We just watched a movie -- The man who invented Christmas -- out of season, I know. But Dan Stevens was in it and absolutely wonderful. He's got a wonderful range, justvlike does as David.

So Legion just got an Emmy nomination- Dana Gonzales for Chapter 9. Cinematography. It's baby steps. While I and I'm sure others hope for some acting nods, this is still something. Even if the show doesn't get it, it's nice that it's getting acknowledged for its visuals.

So the girlfriend and I watched the first 3-4 eps, can't remember, of season 2 as they aired but we got sidetracked with life. We haven't felt the compulsion to jump back in. I'm finding that we didn't get gripped from the go like we did season 1 or else we would've been caught up as soon as we could. Last season was must watch for us but the episodes that we did see this season just didn't feel as accessible and seemed much more of a chore unlike last seasons for us. Seems much more out there and harder to follow now. What is your opinion of season 2 so far? Up or down compared to 1?

See, I'd say up because it doubled down on its weirdness, even though people would see that as a turn-off or you've got people like psy saying that this wasn't appealing. Admittedly, Season 1 is more straightforward, but also setup and in hindsight feels like a jumping-off point for the show to really explore more this season. And this season may not be as accessible as the first, sure, but unlike a lot of shows that play catch-up, this one jumps right back into the thick of it, but goes even thicker.

Stuff like the Vermillion, David going into people's minds, the Shadow King battle at the end, this is all a level of weird that the show couldn't have done in its first season. And maybe I'll see once Season 2 is out on Blu-Ray, but I do think right now that Season 1 is a simpler watch because, again, it's more straightforward.

I think S2 was better, it was more concentrated weirdness, like Hawley was let off the leash. I can see that for some people that would be a offputting, but it was very onputting for me.
