  • Legion was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen in my life, I’ll be passing on this.

    • I originally refused to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer when season 1 was originally airing because I’d seen the movie and it was awful. Just saying.

      • Fair enough, I hated the movie and the show is one of my favorites of all time. Right now I just don’t have any faith in it.

    • Why would anyone want to revisit that awful movie. Oh yeah, the channel that I stopped watching altogether…

  • Legion wasn’t a masterpiece, but it was interesting and Paul Bettany can sell anything. I’d be interested to see the direction a series takes. I think it could be done well enough. Angel mythology is pretty fascinating.

    • This was my thinking as well – not a great movie, but a solid, fairly unique concept and a great jumping-off point for a series.

  • The downside is it’s on SyFy. They will cancel it as soon as it gets good.

    • I so agree anytime you get a great show going they cancel it…..too many times I’ve seen this happen. So I pray they don’t mess it up this time. n
