I don't remember the first episode being significantly different from the rest. If you don't enjoy that 30 Rock humor, you're just not going to like this.

Yeah, the humor is heavily invested in rapid fire one liners, word play, puns, meta jokes and pop culture gags. Personally, that's my wheelhouse for sitcoms, but it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea

Show was just such a fucking mess. And I guess they combined elements of Mojo and shadow king for the villain that would inexplicably become a progressively skankier and zombie Aubrey Plaza? Didn't work at all for me.

Closest thing to character development was making the older blonde care about her husband in cryo who magically lived in the void then came back to life somehow. This is some heroes or doctor who level garbage and I expect way more for the hype.
Probably won't change your mind, but this is a pretty great breakdown of all the thematic and symbolic storytelling that Legion offers.

It felt more like New Girl than 30 Rock.

You mean thematically, like she's a "new girl" in our world? I've seen every episode released of all three series and I don't see the comparison otherwise.

You don't strike me as the New Girl-watching type. I guess the difference to me is quirky girl in a normal world making things silly and the comedy comes from misunderstandings and awkwardness, vs quirky girl in a silly world where crazy things happen. It's more like Angie Tribeca and its gags.

Got throught 6-7 episodes of each shows. Felt very similar.

Tina in 30 Rock was grounded, and that was the main character. Kimmy is not. Also New Girl's world is somewhat silly. And 30 Rock is about actors playing actors, so going silly is understandable while remaining in the real world.
