Holeee shit.  We have a new contender for top superhero EU installment.  Wonder of wonders, its from Marvel, and its like prestige TV.

I am talking about Legion of course.

Goddamn is it good.  And even of it is not your cuppa it has made some confounding and chalenging choices and grounded them in a universe that feels visceral.  Gotta respect it.

It is $19 on Google Play, so I'll wait a few weeks to get a feel for the season before I jump in.

Legion was really good.

Though I must admit my favorite part was seeing Bill Sienkiewicz get a creator credit in the titles. (If your name is in the credits as "created by", you got paid.)

We've come a long way DC Comics absolutely robbing Siegel & Shuster blind and Stan Lee f*cking Jack Kirby out of his legacy.

It's nice to see.

Also:  "Powerless" has potential.  The pilot was spotty, but I really love that they are introducing the world to the idea of Giffen/DeMattis "comedy" DC Universe.  My favorite era of Justice League comics......

Yeah,  my eldest really liked it.  And I was a huge fan of JLE back in the day, but I was decidedly OK with Powerless.

Has anybody seen Justice League: Dark yet?

Anybody have a preferred approach to accessing programs that you can't pay for in your region because reasons?

Yeah, it was OK.  Not familiar at all with the characters except Constantine a little.  It was pretty much an enjoyable film.

If I wanted to do that, I'd probably pay a nominal fee for a decent VPN and then download such programs via bittorrent.

I second Legion, what a wonderful show, made me stretch the concept of what a psychic could be.

Sure, but from where? I mean, if there was a non-cable service I could pay to stream the shows I would. I do that for Agents of SHIELD, Sherlock, and several other series.

ETA: ...I might still just buy the season though. It looks like it's up my alley. I guess I just want a taster first.

Legion honestly surprised me with how good it is.
 It's part of what I've been wanting, something that is a comic based film, but actually mature with little of the nods and winks at how silly it is from the Marvel Movies, or the grimdark we're so serious and totally mature stuff from the DC films.
