Jupiters Legacy (or whatever)
« on: May 16, 2021, 02:02:17 PM »
Tried to watch this new superhero show on Netflix, spoilers it's sucks.

Characters are uninspired and uninteresting.. almost all of the show focus on the trite relationships between the aforementioned dull characters with little to no action.

I got halfway through the 2nd episode and bailed.

No doubt this was Netflix's answer to The Boys and while I thought The Boys had some issues it's a hell of a lot better than this. Interestingly enough just like The Boys Jupiter really, really wants to be Watchmen but misses the mark even further.

I guess Mark Miller (Kick Ass) was involved but yeah..

Didn't look good to me so didn't even try.

How is:
The Nevers?
Shadow and Bone?

Jibes with other reviews I've seen. Probably not worth the time.

I still need to watch that "Invincible" animated superhero thing too. Amazon Prime video or something.

Haven't gotten to;

The Nevers - heard nothing about this one, which seems odd.
Shadow and Bone - heard this one is also dull and not great.

Been a long god damn time waiting on;

Time Bandits series
Lord of the Rings series
Foundation (Asimov) series
Snow Crash series (this one is probably a bad idea - would love to see a Diamond Age series instead...)

Yeah, covid fucked up and delayed a lot of things but maybe don't announce shows 5+ years before they're going to premier either.


HBO has the first of apparently several Game of Thrones spin-offs coming too; I think the first one is a prequel. Will be interesting to see if the viewer numbers are low from the start, people stopped talking about GoT almost immediately after it ended so badly.

Where's the new season of "What We Do in the Shadows" too? And "We're Wolves" as well.

Looks like it has been cancelled;

https://www.avclub.com/jupiters-legacy-is-done-at-netflix-but-mark-millars-re-1847021671

$200 million for "meh" - great.

Article says it might come back in a "retooled" faction - as a series more focused on one character, etc.

I'm gonna take this and the reviews as meaning "don't waste your time on this one".


Another one that has been in development for a while and I've heard nothing about in a long time is the proposed "Ringworld" series.
Very entertaining books, could make a great series.

It's another Apple TV series. They're also doing the Foundation series, so they're backing really, really big sci-fi projects, which is great.
Whether they'll be any good, or ever even come out I have no idea.  I thin they're supposed to be doing the Time Bandits series too.

Apple is for sure pouring money directly down the drain with a lot of their series. I guess if anyone can afford it...
Hey Apple, can I have like, just 2 million for a development deal? I swear I'll never bother you again...

Streaming is the new TV so everyone wants to be on top and will spend whatever they have to.

How much money is in this new Lord of the Rings series? Last I heard it was staggering. Do we even need a Lord of the Rings series? I don't know.

Good for the consumer though, if even 10% of this stuff is good that's a win.

...cuz i'd invest the money, drive a porsche, and give apple something my kid shoots on his iPhone. which will still pull more money than 75% of the crap hollywood puts out there.
