Visuals look cool.

Did a quick wiki on the character, cause I have never really heard of him, and I'm sold. Dude with multiple personalities and each personality can use a different power? Sounds really interesting.

Plus Fargo has been one of my favorite shows in the past couple years, so anything Noah Hawley is tied to I'll give the benefit of the doubt.

I thought a show based on the X-Men universe would be cool, but honestly nothing about this trailer grabbed me. This is could be the first superhero show I don't even bother with.

The dude who made Fargo is working on this. That show is a masterpiece so I would have faith.

Really looking forward to this. I'm glad they're going with FX over Fox Proper, as that should afford them the flexibility to tell some stories that may not be "appropriate" for network television. Fox is pretty hit or miss with their X-Men stuff, though, so I'm trying to go in with tempered expectations.

I watched the pilot and it was bizarre as fuck. Great visuals but you really have to watch the entire way through to get some sort of normality out of the story. What did everyone else think?

I agree with you on this. The visuals were awesome. The story was absolutely maddening. So I left the episode thinking -- I think I enjoyed it? Honestly, I'm still so confused that I'm not sure if I did or didn't.

I'm interested and willing to give it a shot because its not like anything I've seen recently, which I appreciate.

I honestly did not enjoy the episode, but it had enough breadcrumbs to hint at a better story to come which is why I am going to keep going with it. If it hadn't been an X-Men related show I wouldn't have kept going, but knowing that it was leading towards something greater made it interesting.

Reminds me a lot of Mr. Robot

Oh, and I like this a lot.

I really enjoyed this. I liked it A Lot more than the past few Xmen films. In a way it's exactly what I would expect from a Noah Hawley Xmen show and I'm totally ok with that. Wonder if we will ever see any "big name" characters from the Xmen universe. They did say this show does not exists in the films canon.

Probably not for the same reasons you don't see Batman in Arrow or Spider-Man in Daredevil. They want to make those characters seem special so that when they get a movie it's still a big event.

I just wanna see who they get for Prof X. I'd be ok with it not being Sir Pat, or McAvoy, but it would be baller if they did.

Anyone still watchin this? I'm really lovin it. Ep 5 was crazy, was stoked to see Jemaine Clement pop up in ep 4 too. Apparently Patrick Stewart is down to show up on the show. Will be interesting to see if that ever materializes.

This show is fucking incredible. It's one of the most novel shows I've seen in years. I'm glad that networks like FX are willing to let creators like Noah Hawley do whatever they want.

The music, Aubrey Plaza, the weird 70's decor & outfits, the campy tech, all awesome.

This is shaping up to be a great season (only one episode left), and it's already been renewed for season 2.

I loved all the subtle hints Professor X is his dad, the British accent, the stick figure having no hair...

This show man...

Really loved the first season.
