    I’m pretty sure Legion is also the first televisual X-Men story to make the blindingly obvious choice to use O You Pretty Things, which brought upon me a great wave of cathartic release.

    I found the show’s trend towards the literal by the end a bit disappointing. Basically the only thing buoying by that point were the weird performances of Clement and Plaza.

    “However, the show both uses and explicitly disavows all the obvious metaphors. Paradoxically, this doesn’t negate them. You can’t make something as powerful as a good metaphor not be there just by saying it isn’t.”

    I too am a Kill The Moon truther.

    Bookmarked to read later, as it appears to be exactly the take I wanted to read after watching s1. I’ll have to wait to read until the disappointment of s2 wears off.

    I’ve never experienced anything like the way this show squandered all my goodwill over a season. Someone has to do a history of what went wrong someday. Everything about s2 screams troubled showrunneritis
