... fully loaded, safety off...


I finished the first episode and while there were some dry moments, I am completely hooked. This is new, very creative, very intelligent tv making. I highly recommend.
Audrey Plaza is hit and miss, great or trying too hard - hits the odd tones at all times though, and I think that was her main focus. The main actor, Dan Stevens, from Dowton Abbey (raaaange!), is great, as are others. The ending intros some new characters that are very intriguing, a strong draw for the rest of the eps.
Here's a very enthusiastic review and breakdown I just found, haven't seen it all yet:

Is that Ruth Negga? Didn't she just win some award, or big nomination?

Eps are handily titled "Chapter x" so easy to see in order.

May the Good Lord take a liking to you... but not too soon!


There's some deep thinking going on there. Very strange stuff.

I caught the first 6 or so episodes of this and I'm hooked. It's hard to say what the best Marvel show is right now. I think all the shows pretty much are even better than the movies, except for maybe Deadpool.

What do you think that DC is doing wrong? I'm sure it's got its fans, but I really can't stand anything they've been doing. There hasn't been a good Superman since the early 80s and after all these years I probably think they haven't had a good Batman since Michael Keaton. All of their other characters just seem boring when brought to life.

I really thought Batman with Christian Bale was a home run, but they faltered with the story, plot, Katie Homes substitution after Batman Begins.
Cavill as Superman could do well, but dragging him down with Baffleck is a losing strategy.

No no, the pic above is of Aubrey Plaza. She's probably most well known for Parks and Recreation , 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World ', as well as possibly 'Mike and Dave need Wedding dates ' ( Not seen that one ).

She's also in a cool indie film - Safety not guaranteed. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1862079/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_42


btw - I really liked Ruth in Agents of Shield.

Now I recognize her from Mike and Dave, but she may have been invisible next to M-E Winstead in Scott Pilgrim.

Aubrey really branches out in Legion. Before, she's mainly played more wall-flower type characters, sorta in the background. Here, ..well, wow.
