"Per its own creative team, Legion is best taken in as an 'experience' rather than a TV show," says Miles Surrey of the Noah Hawley FX superhero series finale. "That is (respectfully) a somewhat pretentious way to look at a series that largely embraces comic book tropes with an uncharacteristically vibrant visual palette. But if showrunner Noah Hawley aimed to place more emphasis on style rather than substance, the series certainly achieved its goal. There is a mind-numbing amount of superhero content across television and film, but Legion’s three seasons are among the most distinctive and arresting works in the genre...Then measured against Hawley’s other show (the Fargo anthology series), additional programming from FX, or offerings from networks like AMC or HBO that are broadly defined as 'prestige TV,' Legion has often felt a step behind the curve, and as a result, has largely been ignored by the Emmys. But if considered on the merits of its place in the current superhero landscape, Legion was a bright spot—willing to zig where other superhero programming zagged, and willing to get supremely weird at times where a more traditional route could have sufficed. If other superhero shows were standard bedside lights you can purchase at IKEA, Legion was huge-a**s lava lamp."
