Despite tonight’s mediocre episode of Legion, the show constantly has something else up it’s sleeve. With only two more episodes left this season, I think its pretty obvious that there won’t have to be another filler episode.
The synopsis for Chapter 7 reads:
David tries to find a way out of his predicament.
The debut season of Legion has been great so far, and I don’t think the last two chapters will be any different! Just check out this trailer; there is still A LOT to resolve:
Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 20’s and free once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of daily life: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Shannon (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.
Legion premieres Wednesdays at 10 pm on FX.
‘X-Men’ Spin-Offs That Would Make Great TV Shows
The X-Men universe is largely responsible for bringing about the current age of superhero movies. Starting with X-Men in 2000, there has been an explosion in superhero cinema. The X-Men movies have succeeded at the box office for quite some time and are now getting ready to break out onto the small screen.
Next month, FX will be premiering Legion based on the Marvel comics character. The show will focus on David Haller, a mutant with schizophrenia, who happens to have incredible powers for each personality he has. The buzz for the show is great and there’s great potential to seeing more mutant stories on the small screen. In fact, another mutant-based X-Men spin-off show from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix just received a pilot order from Fox, with longtime franchise steward Bryan Singer at the helm.
With two TV shows based in the X-Men universe (or alternate universes) coming in the future, we wanted to think about what other X-Men characters should get their own spin-off TV shows. Here is a list of 10 X-Men spin-offs that should get their own television shows. Click Next to start!
