The Source Material gang gather around the television set to talk Legion. The first TV show from the Fox/X-Men Universe. Legion is an American cable television series created for FX by Noah Hawley. It is based on the Marvel Comics character David Haller / Legion. It’s connected to the X-Men film series as well, which is the first television series to do so.
Legion is produced by FX Productions in association with Marvel Television. Hawley serves as showrunner on the series. Dan Stevens stars as Haller, a mutant diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin also star. FX and Marvel Television announced a new collaboration to create a television series based on the X-Men character Legion in October 2015, with Hawley signed on to write, and direct the pilot. Casting began by January 2016, and filming took place in Vancouver.
Hawley wanted to show Haller as an “unreliable narrator”, including mixing 1960s design with modern-day elements. He films the series through the title character’s distorted view of reality. The eight-episode first season of Legion premiered at the Pacific Design Center on January 26, 2017, ahead of its FX debut on February 8. The series received critical acclaim, particularly for its visuals and departure from superhero genre standards. A second season was ordered in March of 2017.

About Radulich in Broadcasting
Mark Radulich has been an internet personality since 2004 with his Progressive Conservatism blog. He then took that blog to the airwaves and created a podcast for it. It then changed to PC Live. After that, he brought out the 411mania Ground and Pound Radio as well.
Also, Mark would partner up with another 411mania alum, Sean Comer, to create the movie franchise review podcast Long Road to Ruin and then Robert Cooper to create the metal album review podcast, The Metal Hammer of Doom. Robert Winfree took over the MMA show and then added his own podcast, Everybody Loves a Bad Guy. That’s when the Radulich in Broadcasting Network was born. Joining Winfree in having their own podcasts were super fan’s Jesse Starcher (Source Material). Finally Winfree and Radulich added a weekly movie review show to the ever growing lists of podcasts on the Network.

About TV Party Tonight
Mark Radulich and Co. discuss big television series on a semi-regular basis. They might talk about a show from the past. Then, there’s also the chance a show from the present appears too. You never really know what’s the topic of conversation. Regardless, Winfree and Radulich dive deep into it. They discuss series themes. The overall impact. Of course, they give their opinions on whether it is worth watching as well.
Podcasts are one of the greatest mediums ever. 10 years ago Jesse found himself driving back and forth to work with over an hour of travel time. Talk radio became something that he enjoyed and helped kill time during the commute. The problem was NPR never stayed completely interesting and his only other options were the ESPN network and the local channel that hosted religious programming. Always the same show… at the same time. It was pretty limited. About three years ago he discovered Podcasts and it changed how he spent much of his time. It opened up options to great niche content that he never even knew was available. After that, he got his first podcast gig on the From the Cheap Seats sports podcast with Jayson Teasley and became a co-host shortly after that.
His real passion however was comics. He managed to talk Mark Radulich into letting him do the network’s premier comic book podcast Source Material. This would give him a platform to chat with friends about one of his favorite hobbies. A tremendous opportunity. Also, recently Jesse has worked his way into becoming the third co-host, alongside Mark Radulich and Robert Cooper, of the metal Hammer of Doom podcast. He loves music and a podcast about heavy-metal right up his alley.
