Review of the pilot series

FBI agent Martin Odum ( Sean Bean ) is working undercover. He so convincingly portrays gangsters and terrorists that doctors offices consider these reincarnation threatening his mind, already shattered by divorce with his wife and often the inability to see his son. But America needs security officers, do not arouse suspicion in even the most paranoid criminals, and Martin continues to work for the good of the homeland with a group of agents, which is responsible for the creation and maintenance of its criminal “legends”.

The advertising campaign of the series on the social networks under the slogan “Do not kill Sean Bean!”

When in 2011, the creators of ” Game of Thrones “Sean Bean hero killed at the end of the first season, this move caused a strong reaction not only because viewers are not used to seeing as the main star of the show dies. The appearance of Bean uncredited TV series meant that his fans will be able to see him play more often than he usually appears on the silver screen, and fans of the actor were sorely disappointed when they learned that they would have to settle for just one season, the British star.

In addition to Eddard Stark from “Game of Thrones”, the most famous television role of Sean Bean – is a British military Richard Sharpe from the era of the Napoleonic wars. Bean Sharpe played in a series of British television films from 1993 to 2008

“More Bean, good and different!” – Demanding audience in television studios, and in the past year, the cable channel TNT, known for his criminal show ” Snoop “,” Rizzoli and Isles “,” High Crimes “and” perception “to please fans of the actor running in the production of TV series “Legends.” In his new show Bin almost certainly live to see the end of the season (although he often dies in the frame that the “legend” can do it out of habit), and this time his character does not share the screen with a crowd of colorful characters. “Legends”, based on the novel by Robert Littell action-packed – it’s a show about Martin Odum, Martin Odum and again on Martin Odum. Other actors – in particular, Ali Larter of ” Heroes “- you have to literally go all out to vygryzt at least one spectacular solo scene. The heroine of the Larter, for example, in the pilot episode of a very sexy stripper shows that, without giving Martin to give him the necessary information. Well done, keep it up!

Criminal show pilot series “Legends”

As usual in criminal show pilot series “Legends”, apparently, gives a fairly complete picture of how the series will continue. Martin Odum will transform it into one, then another of the elaborated fictional villain, Sean Bean is to show all facets of his acting talent, since all sorts of accents ownership, Larter character named Crystal MakGayr will experience due to the fact, as if Martin was not filled up operation of their improvisations and his love of risk … And Tina Madzhorino as a novice analyst Maggie Harris will hit the keys, read from the screen and miss the days when she played a much more interesting characters in ” Veronica Mars “and” Big Love . “

Odum also in their spare time to fight his demons (what a hero Bean without demons!) And try to answer the question of who he really is. As in the pilot, he finds out that perhaps is not the one who considers himself to be. After all, when ever reincarnated, it is easy to forget what you were, until I began to split apart … Especially when you work for the government, which is able to easily donate or forced to foist a new identity.

As far as all that interesting? Honestly, is not very. We have seen in recent years a number of shows on the duality and transformations, and experience shows that they are successful, or when they have an exciting cross-cutting themes (“stranger among us”), or when they take a playful tone and a “spark” between the charming characters (“Effect”). In the case of the “Legends” cross-cutting theme of the season seems rather ridiculous than spectacular (which, in essence, the difference is actually called Martin and where it came from?), And a no-nonsense tone of the show, the secondary characters, which does not play Sean Bean and explicit “zaglyuchennost” Odum make series dry, darkly depressed and emotionally constrained.

On the other hand, Bean in the title role – it is certainly big and bold plus, and plots the series “Legends” promise to be much more stressful than relaxing scenario most crime series TNT, where the characters occasionally risking their lives, and almost never are alone one with a crime. So if cross-cutting theme of the season will lead to an interesting, and not to the absurd revelations and if subsidiary characters show break out of the shadow of the Bean and place in a little bit of colorful characters, the “Legends” will grow in the genre hit. In the meantime, this show is for fans of the former Boromir, for those who are good-natured, and I am sick sometimes suffocating nepotism “Rizzoli and Isles” and the “most serious crimes”, and for those who prefer a bloody fight with hardened criminals frivolous hunt for criminals debutants.
