I published a new one As part of Piece at The dropout last night. With the release of the first
season Volume from Jupiter’s legacy On Netflix, it seemed like an opportunity to talk about the craziness of the Netflix bloat.
The first season of Jupiter’s legacy is eight episodes, but covers about as much narrative real estate as the first two issues of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s comic. The season doesn’t even achieve the big incentive for most of the comic, but rather stretches certain plot points and certain threads beyond breaking points. It’s not that Netflix deviates or deviates from the source material. Quoting from the comic is often very faithful. It’s like the show can’t even start.
