Legion, our favorite trippy mutant fever dream, is returning for its second season next month. To help get viewers up to speed, FX has released a recap of the first season that, uhh, kind of forgot the recapping part.
What it remembered, though, was the interpretative dancing, screaming, constantly self-distorting hallucination that Legion managed to be in its best moments. And that’s what this recap captures, in its artfully bizarre way: the dizzying sense that you’ve just had a look into a very powerful, very unstable mind.
So if you want an actual recap of the plot of Legion, it would be wise to look elsewhere. But if you want the mood? Well, FX has you covered.
