The review on the pilot of series Legends

The agent of FBI Martin Odum (Sean Bin) works under cover. It so convincingly represents bandits and terrorists that doctors of bureau consider these transformations dangerous to its mentality, and without that loosened by divorce with the wife and impossibility often to see the son. However the staff of intelligence services not causing of suspicions even in the most paranoid criminals is necessary to America, and Martin continues to work for the homeland benefit together with group of agents which is responsible for creation and maintenance of its criminal "legends".

The advertizing campaign of series passed in social networks under the slogan «Do not kill Sean Bin!»

When in 2011 founders «Games of thrones» killed the hero Sean Bin at the end of the first season, this course caused rough reaction not only because televiewers did not get used to see how the main star of show dies. Bin’s appearance in a caption of TV-series meant that his admirers can see its game where more often than it usually appears on a screen, and fans of the actor were strongly disappointed, when learned that they should be content only with one season of the British star.

Besides Eddard Stark from «Game of thrones», Sean Bin’s most known television role is British military man Richard Sharp from an era of wars with Napoleon. The bin played Sharp in a train of English television movies from 1993 to 2008

«There is more than Bin, good and different!» – the audience demanded from television stations, and last year the cable TNT channel known on the criminal shows "Police dog", «Rizzoli and Iles», «Especially serious crimes» and "Perception", потрафил to fans of the actor, having started in production series "Legends". In the new show Bin almost for certain will live till the end of a season (though he so often dies in a shot that in "Legends" can do it simply from the force of habit), and this time his character does not divide the screen with the whole crowd of bright characters. The "legends" based on the extremely topical novel of Robert Littell, is a show about Martin Oduma, Martin Oduma and once again about Martin Oduma. To other actors – in particular, Elie Larter from "Heroes" – it is necessary to go all out literally, that выгрызть at least one effective solo scene. The heroine Larter, for example, in a pilot series very sexy represents the stripteaser that, without having given out Martin, to hand over to it the necessary information. The good fellow so to hold!

As usual in criminal shows, a pilot series of "Legends", apparently, gives rather complete idea of what the series will be further. Martin Odum will reincarnate that in one, in other in details worked invented bastard, Sean Bin will show all sides of the actor’s talent, since possession of all accents, the heroine Larter by name of Cristal Makgayr will worry because of that, as though Martin did not fill up operation by the improvisations and the love to risk … And Tina Madzhorino as a beginner analytics Maggie Harris will knock on keys, to read from the screen and to miss times when she played much more interesting heroines in "Veronica Mars" and «Big love».

Also Odum will battle in free time to the demons (Bin’s what hero without demons!) and to try to answer a question who is he actually such. As in the pilot it finds out that, probably, is not that as whom itself considers. After all, when eternally you reincarnate, it is easy to forget, what you were, yet did not start to fork … Especially when you work for the government, easily able to present or violently to put off the new personality.

As far as all this is interesting? Frankly speaking, yet very much. We saw in recent years a number of show about a duality and transformations, and experience shows that they achieve success or when they have fascinating through plots («The stranger among the») or when they take playfulness of tone and "spark" between charming characters ("Influence"). In case of "Legends" the through plot of a season seems rather ridiculous, than grasping (what, in effect, a difference how actually call Martin and from where it undertook?), and absolutely serious tones of show, minority of heroes of which are not played by Sean Bin, and Odum’s obvious "zaglyuchennost" do series dry, gloomy and depressive and emotionally held down.
