The worst podcast for the worst show!
It is like listening to paint dry!!! Dont' waste tour time!
reflects the shallow end of fan culture for what is a very deep show
This is a tough one. I love Legion – a flat-out amazing show. I really, really wanted to find a podcast that would dive deep on a lot of the elements the show touches upon – particularly the psychological aspects. And this podcast seems to be the only one dedicated to the show … but … it's just not good. It's pretty disorganized with not a lot of critical thought; it's very "fanboy/girl" culture – which by it's very nature is not very critical or interesting. It's a lot of "wow, that was cool". There is no research or prep put into these episodes whatsoever – beyond some general knowledge about the comic book character (the fact that this character originated from the X-Men universe is truly the least interesting element of the show).
[SPOILER ALERT AHEAD FOR 2ND SEASON FINALE]
Their handling of the second season finale was particularly troubling – not really wanting to dive into the issue of rape & the psychological repercussions. Couple that with the bending over backwards to gloss over or explaining away David's actions towards Sydney. There is no sympathy towards her as a rape victim or what that means to her & her outlook on David & their relationship. In fact, it devolves into victim blaming in how she (& the others) treat David. SMH … well, needles to say, a show of this level of complexity just deserves a much deeper level of critical thought.
There's probably other shows out there where these two hosts would be just right – but not Legion – they're just not up to the task.
Horrible Podcast, Great Show
These two are the most cowardly podcasters I've ever heard, grow some balls.
