Why we’re watching: Legion has quite an interesting premise and the trailer did a good job of selling it. It looks to be as fun and funny as it is dramatic. It’s the first Marvel television series, from Fox’s side of things, to tie into their own little X-Men Cinematic Universe, so how exactly it does that will be exciting to see. Also he’s Charles Xavier’s son and one of the most powerful characters in Marvel comics, which is enough to make those of us who don’t read the comics interested.
