(Above is our Legion Season 1 Recap with That Hashtag Show’s Migdalia Melendez, Jasmin Abdulla, and Daniel Jerome)
The first season of Legion has come and gone and what a wild ride! Each episode was more crazy and surreal than the last. The show explored different styles of film making all along telling a story. This is probably the most unusual and innovative superhero show of all time, defying expectation and belief. The finale concluded the inevitable showdown between David and the Shadow King, who has been leaching off his psychic energy since birth. The good guys managed to expel him from David’s mind, only for the Shadow King to possess Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) instead. From a viewer’s perspective, this is basically the ideal outcome. Aubrey Plaza and Jemaine Clement playing a crazed psychic villain in season 2? Bring it on.
