No spoilers. No plot points. You do not need them in a review of this show. Watch it and feel the performances.
Dan Stevens is a force of nature, in this story he literally is & his screen presence is a growing maelstrom. I first knowingly crossed his path in The Guest & have not looked back since (comparable with Matthew McConaughey in Killer Joe). The story is vague & intriguing from the beginning with growing enchantment as the episodes stack-up.
Sure. I'm a comic book geek from the 1980's, but Noah Hawley seems like he has more than his ducks in a row for this project. As SONY/Fox has often mis-stepped with the X- Men and its creative use of characters and story lines, LEGION seems to be avoiding the potholes, while creating a new amalgam of story from the past to forging ahead with a cohesive story.
Aubrey Plaza's performance is delightfully off-beat and maniacal.
I could list the positives for every actor and their character, literally the casting (and execution) seems perfect at this point (through episode seven).
