The question mark in the title isn’t a mistake. It’s just that I’ve been teased with this news before and was disappointed.

Here’s what it’s like to me. Were you ever forced to read James Joyce in school? I’m thinking Ulysses here. Or any of the other “difficult” reads that high school teachers liked to torture us with. For me, Moby Dick applies, as does Thomas Wolfe’s Look Homeward, Angel. When I had to read these books, […]Read more "Legion: Season 2 — a review"
