    Hard to believe we're here at last. Have said it multiple times, but since Comic Con last year, this has been my most excited comic book property between any of the companies. And hearing all of the glowing praise both it and Hawley have received just makes me more excited.

    The final piece for Fox is really a new director to take on the flagship X-Men. Every other project just seems to be bursting with creativity and passion on part of the people who are working on it right now. But with cyborgs, magic time travel, clones, aliens, giant robots and maybe something no one expected coming from this show, the X-universe is hustling and bustling.

    Also I'm surprised how fast and well this came together. Hawley seems to have blown people's minds with the first three eps, hopefully he keeps the pedal to the metal.

    I am loving the cinematography. Definitely a Noah Hawley product, as the dark humor is just like what we got from Fargo.

    I love how much this doesn't even feel like a comic-book based property. Heck, without the 'mutant' drop, I imagine folks wouldn't even think it's X-Men related, but I like that and appreciate that Hawley is taking this as his own without having to rely on any previous continuity. Plus, it helps that this isn't concerned with the films.

    Very Matthew Vaughn-ish vibe. Aubrey Plaza cracks me up though.

    I'm getting a real Stranger Things vibe from this background music.

    Hawley brought his A-game

    Seriously, if the people at Fox aren't looking at Legion and thinking about the good that Hawley could bring as a writer to the X-Men films, depending on the material, they aren't doing their jobs. Granted, Hawley probably has more freedom here on FX than he would a film, but this is some pretty great material right here. Imagine how this could translate to going into Jean's mind as she deals with the Phoenix.
