Legion

There hasn't been a TV show that's felt so very 'made for me' in a long while than Legion.

I'd long given up on the superhero genre as a whole, watching it turn from one of the most self-reflectively profound genres of cinema  into one of the most self-indulgently complacent.

Yet I watched the trailer for Legion, completely unaware of its superhero origins or Marvel-owned status, and felt immediately engrossed. While Legion’s peers have decided to busy themselves with the wanton destruction of cities, again and again, the new FX show is more content with considering the profound psychological damage having strange and unlimited powers would likely dish out.

It’s also one of the most beautifully shot television shows I’ve ever seen. Give it a watch.
