    Is this show in the same continuity as the films or will it be it's own thing?

    It's its own thing. At least that's what they are saying.

    Yep.

    They are playing up the multiple universes/timelines aspect.

    ‘Legion’ Review: A Stunning, Challenging, Fantastically Human Journey

    What makes Legion’s story so compelling (and this is based on Hawley’s interpretation of it — I have not read the comics) is how it expresses itself through the framework of mental illness. The world doesn’t understand David, and he’s diagnosed as schizophrenic at a young age. In many ways the diagnosis does make sense: he’s plagued by a litany of voices, hallucinations, and rage blackouts. He has trouble controlling himself, and picks up a drug habit that helps quiet some of the mental storm. But even though Legion subverts this idea of illness, and instead makes it a power, it doesn’t save him.

    Legion plays a lot with themes of identity and memory and emotion, and if the key to visual storytelling is to show and not tell, well, Legion grasps onto that wholeheartedly. But above all, it’s a deeply considered portrait of mental illness. Even if David’s schizophrenia is actually part of a mutant power, it’s also still literally angry voices in his head fighting to control him and his actions. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a problem for his daily life, and something he has struggled with since he was a young boy. The X-Men have always been a stand-in for outsiders, for people who feel persecuted or just different from the rest of the world. David’s journey is Legion is his own, but we’re connected to it, too.

    Overall Rating: ★★★★★ Excellent — Awards material
    Go man go!

    Well, this was certainly worth the wait.

    Episode One Annotation(I'll "Spoiler" Tag It) -

    spoilers:
    "Sydney(Syd) Barrett) is actually a reference to original Pink Floyd member and acid casualty/possibly mentally ill Syd Barret.

    Also, the pool seen near the end of the episode felt like a nod to the ending of the film Let The Right One In.
    end of spoilers

    Fantastic first episode. I have little to no idea what just happened but it was one hell of a ride and I'm there for the rest of the season.

    I wonder why they went for the pretty boy look instead of his freakish comic incarnation with the big black hair.

    BTW the movie Split with McCavoy feels like a Legion movie, doesn't it. (Prof. X' schizo son)

    The first episode was fantastic. The only downside was bad cgi at the end.
