"As a series that frequently unloads trippy visual flourishes, Legion becoming a race through time in its final eight episodes feels very on-brand," Miles Surrey says of the FX Noah Hawley Marvel series, which kicked off its final season on Monday. "...The show revels in its own unreliability: Instead of saying 'previously on Legion,' the beginning of each episode opens with 'ostensibly on Legion.' Time constantly folding over itself while theoretically creating myriad parallel timelines is a mindf*ck in and of itself that would give the Three-Eyed Raven a migraine; thankfully, Legion isn’t as concerned with the logistics so much as setting up a psychedelic vibe worth investing in. Narrative, of course, hasn’t always been Legion’s strong suit: after a strong freshman outing that matched a compelling and thoughtful deep dive into mental illness with lurid imagery, the second season devolved into deceptively simple and occasionally languid storytelling masked by visual flair. On the whole, though, the two seasons were able to unveil two critical truths about David."
