英雄主义的责任在Netflix的“木星的遗产”中得到了新的形式，这表明与更多的逃生者和最近的超级英雄文化的欺骗性相比，这将是苍白的苍白，比如亚马逊Prime的文化“Invincible“和”男孩“，但这已经长长的复杂戏剧和有趣的表演，让它在一起足以让我很想看到第二季。第一个赛季中的八集中有很多剧集致力于讲述并行的原点故事，它有时可以通过这种结构的负担来重视，但是通过这种适应同名的漫画系列的适应性有趣的主题标米尔玛尔("Wanted那" "踢屁股“）和坦率地区。最初开发的Steven S. DeKnight（STARZ的主销“斯巴塔法斯“节目），由于创造性的差异，创造者在赛季中间被桑k金代替，并且有时可以感受到音调不确定性和不一致，特别是第三集和四次。但是，由于Millar的对书面的话题的细致细节思想，源材料的强度维持蜘蛛侠那Civil War, Fantastic Four，还有更多了解得很好。
A characteristic scene for the present-day material in “Jupiter’s Legacy” opens episode six, wherein the Superman of this universe, The Utopian (Josh Duhamel.），正是爱他的妻子Grace Aka Lady Liberty（Leslie Bibb.) when he detects a rogue comet that needs to be stopped. She isn’t so much upset as hopeful he can pick up the dry cleaning on the way home ... from saving the planet. The Utopian aka Sheldon Sampson has two children: Brandon (Andrew Horton) and Chloe (埃琳娜·坎乌里斯). The former is a hero named The Paragon but dad isn’t sure his offspring really knows how to use his powers. The end of the premiere features a decision made by Brandon that violates dad’s heroic code and divides the Sampson family and really the entire planet about what heroes should be allowed to do. Meanwhile, Chloe is even more rebellious, carving her own path through life as the celebrity daughter of the most famous couple in the world.
特别是在父/子的动态so played out on “Invincible,” the family half of “Jupiter’s Legacy” feels a bit overdone and underwhelming. Much more successful are the flashbacks, told in a wider aspect ratio, that detail the origin story of The Utopian, Lady Liberty, and four other heroes who would be known as The Union. It turns out that Sheldon’s father was one of several men who hurled themselves from a building during the stock market collapse of 1929, sending the wealthy Sampson clan into chaos. Sheldon’s brother Walter (本丹尼尔斯）试图让他排队，但谢尔顿开始有一个遥远的岛屿，他以前从未见过。在赛季的过程中，年轻的Sheldon，Grace，Walter，Richard Conrad（David Julian Hirsh），Fitz Small（Mike Wade）和George Hutchence（Matt Lanter) make it to that island, where everything changes.
与唯一视觉提示在当今材料和起源故事之间不断削减，唯一的视觉提示是不同的纵横比（除了在Duhamel，Bibb等人的一些漂亮的平庸老人化妆品中删除) gives “Jupiter’s Legacy” a unique rhythm. Despite my general aversion to origin stories, I vastly preferred the flashback material, as it has an old-fashioned adventure serial tone that’s almost Spielbergian at times. The present-day stuff has a habit of being clunkier, especially when the action kicks in. When the flashbacks are reminding me of Spielberg and the current stuff is reminding me of “令人惊叹的蜘蛛侠2那” it’s not hard to pick a favorite.
After eight hours, I’m not sure that “Jupiter’s Legacy” adds up to as much as it could have and there are definitely some issues to iron out that will hopefully come with a season-long showrunner for what feels like an inevitable second outing. By then, there will probably be even more shows that deconstruct the superhero genre. The jury is still out on whether or not this one will have a lasting legacy.
