A look back 2017 – Legion – Thoughts on S01E01 AND E02

140

One of my first reviews of 2017 was last years hit new series Legion. With Episode 1 out in the UK of Season 2 last night. We look back, to then review S02E01 Tonight (you will see it on the 19th)

As you can read with my writing – I was very very descriptive at the time. 😉   Original Article Release – 23rd February, 2017.

Episode 1

Episode 1 sets up the main character and it does it terrific. David Haller is a troubled young man who may be more than most.  Diagnosed as a schizophrenic, David has been in and out of hospitals for years.  These can be seen in the show as the talks with the different doctors.

“He believes he is mentally ill….  but he maybe be the most powerful mutant”

The show flips scenes and it gets the feel of “Sunshine of a spotless mind”.  It means you do not know what is real and what is dream. Building on the ideas of you seeing this from David’s perspective.

A kiss that changed the world

David and his mental hospital girlfriend Syd.  She does not like to be touched and he kisses her when she is supposed to leave the hospital. 

—- They then switch places because of it—–

David (in Syd’s body) is now supposed to leave and Syd is stuck in his body. Such an interesting way to bring out the issue of mutant powers.  Introduce it to David and the audience.

It builds and it builds up the tension with numerous interviews and questions to David. Then he escapes….

Episode 2

Episode 2 is all about re-programming David into thinking he is not crazy.  We see him find he telepathic abilities at the start and we only scratch the surface on what he can do.

Talkwork

Dr Melanie Bird is here to try and solve his issues.  She clearly has pull over his mind and helps him throughout the episode.

Memorywork

He sees his younger self and they as a team go through his memories.  We see hints of dreams throughout and David hided elements from them. But as the audience we can see what direction this is likely to go.

 

The darkness in his mind is still there and there seems to be a lot more to be revealed.

 

Overview

A show going deep into psychological threats of the crazy mind. But is he crazy? 

Episode 1 says he is and Episode 2 says he is not. There is that grey element of not been 100% sure either way. The way that the show plays on it is terrific.  Strange mind tricks get shown and when people visit his memories, they start to see.

How deep will I venture into his mind?  So far all the way….

5 out of 5

 

For More Info –

I watched Legion on FOX UK.  At the time of writing Legion is still available on demand.  Other regions have different stations – this is one to watch out for.

  1. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) at the moment issued two separate statements that outline what it perceives because the dangers preliminary coin offerings
    (ICOs) pose for traders and startups, respectively.

    A number of ICOs use existing cryptocurrency protocols
    to create their tokens on high of them. Our partners and we see our aim in making the
    way of investors and initiatives towards their goals
    more reliable, understandable and effective – reducing risks, maximizing the potential
    income, rising market transparency and stability. There
    are non-zero odds that Bitcoin is a product of National Safety Agency’s cryptographers working with some knowledgeable contractor help, so there is an argument that
    it is American, but since no agency of the US authorities
    claims to have invented Bitcoin or Blockchain, there may be low-hanging fruit for governments.

    ICO cash” are basically digital coupons, tokens issued on an indelible distributed ledger, or blockchain, of the
    kind that underpins bitcoin, a crypto-foreign money. NXT created a cryptocurrency coded from
    scratch (i.e. not a fork of the original Bitcoin code) and applied the first fully proof-of-stake system.
    These are also called Token Generating Occasions”, particularly within the US, out of
    terror that using the acronym ICO will annoy and entice the attention of the Securities and Alternate Commission…a nasty signal as a
    result of it signifies a degree of superstition and rumor is operating,
    within the absence of a crystal clear policy regime for ICOs
    and TGEs.

    Gibraltar just isn’t regulating or limiting the expertise
    itself, nor the inherent dangers in tokens and cryptocurrencies, but the
    ideas-based mostly DLT Regulations afford an element of consumer protection by ensuring the required infrastructure, safeguards and company governance of the operators on this area.
    Because of this, both bitcoin and ethereum tumbled,
    and it was considered as a sign that regulations of
    cryptocurrencies are coming. Swapy Token (ERC20) is a cryptocurrency
    launched for the Swapy.Community project, which goals to offer Universal Entry
    to Credit.

    Still, most ICO trackers try to combine lists of presumably relevant parameters resembling: who holds the collected money (in lots of instances buyers don’t even know!),
    what sort of social network exercise a given project can boast,
    and different seemingly disparate information. If IPO is thought to us because the preliminary public providing of shares on the stock exchange in the conventional economic system,
    ICO (Initial Coin Providing) is the process of launch of the company’s
    own tokens (an analogue of shares on the traditional financial market with a variety of distinctive properties) and their lodging on the cryptocurrency change.

    Taking a step towards presenting proper tips for companies seeking to interact in potential ICOs, this information is meant to make things clear.

    Some tokens are built on prime of recent variations of Bitcoin’s blockchain which were modified indirectly—examples embrace Litecoin and
    ZCash. 1 token could be equal, for instance, to $1.00 of a
    debt, 1 share of the company, 10 shares of the company, the correct to vote anyplace else, and so on. Now,
    there are no established requirements on what will
    be the token in a selected mission, so it is specified individually in each supply.

    A: Initial coin offerings (ICOs) or token gross sales.

    By way of our Swapy Network, you should have access to Swapy Exchange, Swapy Monetary ID and Swapy DataMarket, as well as other providers that may be added to the network sooner or later.
    When the foreign money is launched into the market, it often has the next worth and investors can promote them immediately or wait till the worth appreciates a
    bit extra before promoting them. Given this traction, it is simple to dismiss
    the cryptocurrency and token markets as a bubble: Peter Schiff and Howard Marks have every voiced their
    concerns in the space.

    The NXT ICO started on the twenty eighth of September
    2013 and it lasted until 18 November 2013 with
    21 Bitcoin collected, price roughly $14k.

    And it’s that the ICO has to do with the financing of a enterprise undertaking.
    A series of excessive profile Bitcoin trade collapses ensued,
    a milestone instance having been Mark Karpeles’
    MtGox, was originally the brainchild in late 2006 of programmer Jed McCaleb, who may also lay claim to having co-developed
    Donkey2000, Overnet1, Ripple, and Stellar, considered
    constructing an internet site for users of the Magic: The Gathering On-line
    service to allow them to commerce playing cards like shares.

    Here, one is presented with all the required data to buy tokens of
    this mission: handle to contribute, minimal amount of contribution,
    and really useful Gas restrict (I am going to clarify this later).
    Blockchain – A digital ledger in which transactions made in bitcoin or one other cryptocurrency are recorded chronologically
    and publicly. The price normally reflects the overall cryptocurrency market sentiment, project-specific information,
    and the addition of new features. The acronym ICO is sort
    of much like the IPO, the term that’s used when a company goes public and wants to supply shares to potential
    buyers in alternate for cash.

    This year has seen an explosion within the reputation of this implies of
    funding DLT-based projects, such that by August, it eclipsed early stage venture capital
    funding for on-line corporations. This enables the Good Token contract to serve as its own market
    maker, mechanically offering so-referred to as value
    discovery, and liquidity to other coins. Each time someone decides to use blockchain know-how for special use, there
    have to be an associated forex (and it’s typically referred to as a token to avoid complicated the venture with a new foreign money) and due
    to this fact an ICO may be created to finance the challenge,
    changing these pre-mined tokens for cash.

    Final week I wrote about the bull market in bitcoin and other digital currencies.

    Sequoia is a frontrunner within the SAFTs area, using them to fund Filecoin and Orchid Labs Within the case of Orchid, SAFTs
    are notably useful for investing in products just like
    the Orchid protocol, which ultimately could develop into an open-supply mission supported by
    a neighborhood of engineers quite than a structured crew,
    ” Enterprise Insider detailed. The majority of ICOs to date have
    created their own ERC-20 token and provided a share of the tokens created on the market. http://www.printing-izumi.co.jp/cgi-bin/bbs1/yybbs.cgi
