Jupiter’s Legacy (2021) ★★☆☆☆

What if the dilemmas of Watchmen crossed with the epic intrigue of Game of Thrones told across the American Century, but with none of the details filled-in?

Ultimately this Netflix show asks some good questions, but it’s ploddingly slow with weak narrative structures featuring mostly undeveloped characters – and yet it still manages to be better than the one (to two) dozen issues of the comic (depending on how you count).

To be fair to Mark Millar it justifies the big story holes he left for a future writers’ room, it’s not (entirely) his fault they did a lousy job filling them in.
