Seems like they tried to be like 'The Boys' but ended up more like a CW show with their insanely shit CGI and cliche stories/characters. Netflix is really going for the quantity over quality method nowadays. And there is bound to be a few duds in there. Unfortunately this is one of them for me.

I might be a minority here - but I’m enjoying it! Sure, it’s no way as good as The Boys. But I enjoy the slow pace and the depth of character building. I’m just hoping Netflix doesn’t cancel after this rough start.

Started off good with an interesting premise. After about 2 episodes got boring as shit. Ended horribly. Basically it’s a season of backstory and introduction. Nothing really happens in the whole 8 episodes and it’s just a set up for the following season. I can imagine the following season might be finally good but this first season is terrible

I'm not sure what everyone is comparing this to. It's really not as bad as people are saying. There's a decent story in there, albeit a generic one, and the power rangers fight scenes are a bit fiddly but I've seen an awful lot worse. It's a steady 7....

Not too sure on the hate in some other comments. I actually found the story quite gripping and intriguing. There are some strange choices in terms of pacing and plot, but overall it worked. I actually found myself enjoying the more human flashback story rather than the modern superhero elements but I think that was the intention. People complaining about the CGI, I saw it as being a stylistic choice to not take itself too seriously and be a bit cheesy in those moments. I would say a lot of the first series is background and characterisation which does feel like some storylines are just setup without much going on. Definitely enough for me to look forward to a second series 8/10

Another show that feels the need to push **wokeness** over a coherent plot. Spends way to much time building up for season 2, with way to many characters, that it barely has a story that's worth watching. If your into watching random people party, do drugs, occasionally fight with terrible cgi, wokeness whenever possible, LGBT sex scenes out of nowhere added just to check that box, randomly added regular one night stands, psychopathic serial killer cops, evil capitalism, racism stories, women distrimination, injustice, and the imaginary nazi white supremacist undertone that every show seems to have, then this show is for you! (that's just from the first 4 episodes) Basically its a showcase of random people, living woke degenerate drug fueled livestyles and o ya they have powers too! Here's a bunch of interesting historical back story flashbacks as well that aren't nearly explained enough because most of the show is wasted on letting you know just how woke everyone is. They spend so much time making sure they touched on every single wokeness point, they missed the boat on what the story was even about. What you won't get is badass super hero fights nonstop like the boys. You get one of those and it's not great, in the later part of ep 1 or early 2. Hope we get more of them as I continue to watch it, but I've set the bar low for this one. The last few Netflix shows have felt more like a wokeness box checking exercise, that forget why people actually watch TV shows. I wish we could remove politics from TV shows, but apparently the media knows what's best for programming us. I imagine this will get one more season and be canceled. To be clear I have nothing against any of the wokeness stuff,(or any view for that matter) but when every single shows primary directive is to try to justify the writers politics rather then tell a good story, it gets old pretty quickly. There's a word for this, o ya propaganda... You know what the nazis did to support there gross fringe belief systems to the masses. Netflix for a while had a great run, but they are starting to feel like the CW 2.0 and it's losing its Magic quickly. Hopefully they go back to making great shows like Lost in Space, Luke Cage, Kingdom, but my hopes are low. If they would have kept the focus on the utopian family, it's back story and added a great villain backstory this would have been an exceptional show, but instead most of the show is directed elsewhere to introduce prob over a dozen irrelevant characters and showcase there wokeness lifestyles and diversity. Big miss. Update : on episode 5 now, no spoilers but the show goes something like this. Show an interesting piece of backstory, flash to a sex scene with no plot value besides diversity, interesting backstory, flash to an LGBT strip club with no primary character appearance at all, interesting modern story, flash to girls going down on each other who subsequenty disappear from the show completely adding 0 plot value, interesting back story, flash to a racial injustice scene, interesting backstory, flash to a side random char doing drugs, and so on over and over. It's like they were more concerned in appeasing every liberal activist group in existence to the point of making new irrelevant characters just to be edgey and diverse and storyline just to check off the box, they missed the point. It's honestly laughable and prob the worse exercise in wokeness yet. Episode 7 update: the same wokeness storyline splits have continued to waste away most of the run time, but the backstory Lovecraft adventure is a great story and the extremely rare hero action is good. The problem is, it only takes up maybe 20% of the run time with the remaining 80% random wokeness plots or character development. I get what they are trying to do, build subplots for spinoff series but the way they did it ruined the show. All of this reenforces my original thoughts, This could have been an exceptional show if the runtime was used to actually tell the story. (Even if it had 10% apparently mandatory wokeness) The entire backstory is spread across 8 episodes in 3-5 min clips and could have easily been told straight through in one story to establish the backbone of the series, but instead is paced terribly and its the only thing giving the show legs, rest is woke filler literally.

Final edit: The entire season works as a backstory, hopefully leaving the better stuff to next season. The non linear story can be easy recognizable (my son was the one that noticed) when the story goes back in time the screen opens wide and wehn they get back to the present it closes back. I loved it, guess some people will hate it. For me it was good entertainment. First episode in. Seems interesting. I guess Josh fake beard threw me off a bit. That said I'm enjoying it. So far seems to be focusing on the family dynamics. Edit: So now 5 episodes in I'm loving it. The only downside for me is the, what now seems to be the norm, constant back and forth of going to past and present. Seems nowadays everyone wants to use a non linear story, from The Witcher to this series. Give us a break lol. Anyway at least unlike The Witcher this is really easy to understand given the differences between epochs. Hope you enjoy this as much as me.

I see _Jupiter’s Legacy_ getting a fair amount of stick from all the aspiring critiques, but I honestly quite enjoyed it. It was a breath of fresh air. A nice new origin story of some superheroes we are as yet not acquainted with. Sure there’s some questionable CGI, but the storyline and character range is quite something. I also like it when superhero shows and movies actually highlight the incredibly fine line between heroes and villains.

avatar

I liked it. But, I think should have done back story as season 1 and then make season 2 all about them in the present. But surly they have a shit budget and can’t spend too much on CGI. That means fillers. In saying that I will be watching season 2! :)

Or I´m very lost Or... [spoiler] This is a Lovecraft history (lol one character speaks openly XD, 30`s adventurer group Chtlulhu adventures) that turns into a superheroes history and the global history I dont have a clue right now ...[/spoiler] I love it.
