The Cine-Analyst: Episode 13 – Legion

On this episode of the Cine-Analyst, we look at Legion, the subject of FX’s first Marvel show. David Haller has got something wrong with his head, but it’s less chemical than it is psychic. This super-powerful mutant finds freedom and love in a struggle between the government and mutants, but what will happen to him when he finds out who’s really moving and grooving in his head?

Here’s what we talk about this episode:

  • The 2-ego-1-body problem
  • How you manipulate a person into placation
  • Parasites and symbiosis, like you’re back in science class.
  • It’s all about the brain, no matter who it’s in.
  • Who is David talking to?

Tune in every Friday as I breakdown fictional characters and talk about what’s going on inside that brain of theirs. Are your favorite heroes crazy or just misunderstood? Find out on this season of The Cine-Analyst!
