Show Summary

American crime drama Legends is based on the 2005 book Legends: A Novel of Dissimulation by master spy novelist Robert Littell. The main character Martin Odum (Sean Bean) is an undercover agent working for the FBI's Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. He can alter himself and his personality into a different person for each job as needed - a fake identity or "legend". Martin has a gift for deep cover, so much so that he often has a difficult time establishing where his "legend" ends and his real life begins.  When a stranger plants seeds of doubt that Martin Odum himself is a "legend", he questions who he really is. His partner is Crystal McGuire (Ali Larter), a fellow operative and she has a history with Martin. The series was developed by Howard Gordon, Jeffrey Nachmanoff  and Mark Bomback. The first season consists of ten episodes.

  • Good and bad

    4.5
    The best part about the show is Sean Bean's compelling character. And that's about it. This show is like almost every other TV crime drama when it comes to diversity. Oh there plenty of that among the "good guys", but the villains were an assortment pf Southern redneck militia and military contractors - all lily white males. At the beginning of episode 7, they give you a head fake about the Muslim planning to assassinate the Saudi prince but I knew as soon as I saw him that the real villain will be one of the whitest TV actors in Hollywood, the CEO of an evil energy company. Enough of the racial pandering!moreless

    I love how he phases into an identity while telling you their backstory
  • Sean Bean is the new Jason Bourne!!

    9.0
    This show is great in so many ways. Fans of the Bourne films will love it for the questions over Martins identity, Sean Bean fans will know the show will revolve around him so he won't die anytime soon and there is also plenty of cop action to be seen.

    The premise is simple; Sean Bean plays a gifted FBI agent (Martin Odum) who can assume any undercover identity or "Legend" he wants to get the job done. He cracks the toughest of cases with the best of the best behind him. His only problem is returning to his real life, that is until a homeless stranger tells him that it isn't. Even as he shrugs him off and adjusts to being Martin again, his mystery man ends up fatally stabbed on the subway and the tech he tasked with looking him up ends up dead in his apartment. Caught between threats to national security, an overzealous agent investigating the subway death and his concerned superiors, Martin descends into his biggest case yet; himself!moreless
