    Climax not too hard to follow, satisfying denouement. Rewarded the viewer moreso than confounded them. Nice.

    Great show. Good ending. Enjoyed every second of all three seasons.

    Maybe...if I saw a little 'epilogue' that showed the birth of Aubry's character, I woulda liked it more...

    Ummm, "Lenny", or "Farouk"...? 'Cause, y'know, that's who she turned out to be, when inside David...

    Me too. My one regret is that this is the end. It ended well.

    And they lived happily ever after: a truce with the Shadow King with beers, Switch becomes a Time God, David and Syd restart their new lives, Gabrielle and Charles get to be loving parents.
    Safe and tidy ending for Hawley to end his saga. I have to admit being a little disappointed. I think of the ending of Twin Peaks: The Return where nothing is answered, chaos remains and I am still intrigued and questioning Lynch's ideas and motives. Hawley ends
    with everyone singing kumbaya
    and it's okay but just a little empty.

    I get that. But.. . I think it could still go south as time goes on, or that's one "hope" I have. I have lingering doubts that add a bit of satisfaction for me.

    I gotta say, if they don't release a Complete Series BluRay box for this I'm gonna be very annoyed. Just the thought of paying $50 for a burn-on-demand DVD-R for only the last eight episodes is getting my blood pressure rising.

    Another for the 'missed opportunity' dept.:
    If, they had shown him 'grown-up' from this new time-line, to be the 'shrub' version of himself, with the mouse that sang Bryan Ferry songs!

    Goosebumps throughout Mother. Not really sure what has been going on in this show for (frankly for the whole run) but some of the musical moments have been incredible.

    Isn't this really about David's psychoses (multiple-personality disorder, god-complex/delusions of grandeur, etc.), and all just takes place inside his head?

    Wonderful ride. Best show on broadcast tv in a long time.

    Very good ending. Nice sadness to it. The Farouk arc was more interesting to me than David's or Syd's.

    The one thing I did not get was the "many" David's. They all seemed exactly same and not different personalities. If they would have been smaller it could have played like Army of Darkness.

    That's his interpretation of his identity, "Legion".

    Legion season 1 in HD: Amazon.com: Watch Legion Season 1 | Prime Video ($4.99 for the season)
    Legion season 2 on Amazon streaming in UHD 4k: Amazon.com: Legion Season 2 [Ultra HD] ($34.99 for the whole season.)
    Legon S3 on Amaon in HD: Amazon.com: Legion Season 3 ($199.99 for the whole season.)

    So I'll bet we get a streaming only HD box set price of $24.99 when they put them all on sale.
