FX Legion: Time Travel Is Impressive

Dan Steven has been killing it as David Haller since Legion first premiered, and it’s a joyous thing to see he hasn’t lost his touch one bit. It’s even more pleasant when you realize the show is fully embracing time-travel in all its Glory. The season three premiere opens with it quickly establishing its own set of rules for one of the most popular topics in SciFi, and one of my personal favorite.

Its theory builds upon previously existing concepts of time travel we already know, like taking care to not array to close or far from event(s) intended to alter, but it’s the tease of a time demon that gets me really excited for all the many ways things could really go to shit for this season.

The season three premiere goes out of its way to give a little extra of everything this show’s come to be unanimously applauded for – mind altering cinematography, excellent performance from its cast, stunning visuals, even the impromptu musicals aren’t left out, making it more difficult to prepare to say goodbye.

Division 3 didn’t come to play – David’s got to die. It’d be fun if the bulk of the season will be about David manoeuvring a vindictive Sydney with equal amount of hate as she once loved him, as Farouk rightly pointed out, but I know that’s a bogus lead. The Shadow King is too good to keep playing ball for long, he’s definitely got a few sinister tricks up his sleeves especially since there’s a time-traveler on board. With Professor X slated to appear somewhere down the line, I’d like to see how all these pieces play out together.

Give me more Lenny, crazy David-Farouk moments, time-travel, and I’ll be your loyal bitch this season, Legion.

Rinzy’s best TV shows of the season 2016/2017

It’s the month of June, a month after most of our favorite TV shows have taken a bow for the season. As expected, most networks have rolled out announcements for shows that will an won’t be returning to our screens (that’s a topic for another time). Today, Rinzy will be listing TV shows that gave him excitement week after week, shows that caused him inability to sleep because of anticipation. This is Rinzy’s review for best shows of the TV season 2016/2017.

  • Arrow (S5)

Arrow - New team

Oh! Ohh! Ooooh! My sweet sweet Arrow. Who would have every thought it was possible for a show that has lot its way for two seasons to get back on track? Definitely not me. But with the miracle of this season, I’ve learnt that nothing is impossible with regards to this.

Behind every Hero there must be a more awesome Villain. Arrow’s fifth season buttressed that point. Since the time of Slade Wilson, Arrow hasn’t received much in terms of villain’s development, until now. Prometheus is his name, the man who gave Arrow a new breath of fresh life. I enjoyed every little detail of this season, every episode. Prometheus was so good and the effects of his existence so awesome that he committee suicide to drive home his point.

  • Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S4)

aos

 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been one of the most consistent shows on TV today. Since its sophomore year, AoS has consistently upped its game in a way that’ll easily make some low budget SciFi movie go to bed in shame. This year, they did it again: Bigger and Better they call it, and its because the show’s producers did their homework well with the three ppd story formula (and also because of The Ghostrider). No hard guesses why AoS is easily one of my favorites this year. It’s a pity that the long future of this show is in doubts because of ratings; I keep wondering why same people invest so much time in insane shows. Don’t answer that: I know why.

  • Feud

Feud

Anything with Jessica Lange is Okay by me. Yes! Then, through in Susan Saradon and a host of others jn a shpw self titled ‘Feud’, amd you’ve got me hooked for 8 weeks. Feud was easily one of my best choice for 2017: A time-period show based on the constant friction between two household actresses of the 20’s. Who wouldn’t love that?

  • Legion (S1)


    For as far back my memories go, I’ve been a fan of all things Xmen. I grew up loving them. But for some reason, I couldn’t keep up with Legion when it originally aired in Febrary. I recently tried it again, and gbam! Awesome. This show is arguably one of my favorite this year. Thankfully, it’s returning for another round of adventure with The Shadow King.
