Jupiter's Legacy

Too many flash backs.

When a violent supervillain somehow escapes the super max and kills a few heroes it is up to the world's strongest champion, the Utopian (Josh Duhamel), and his team "the Union" to stop him. That sounds like a decent superhero show doesn't it? Especially since it's got a pretty decent budget behind it and some very good effects.

Needed a lot more of this.

Alas, that plot line takes a hard back seat for most of this one season show - favoring instead on focusing on the Utopian's past, when he wasn't yet a super and it is absolutely annoying. That's the big problem with this one. If it just stuck to the current story, even with the family drama, and only have 10% flash back (or just one condensed flash back episode) it would be fine. Oh well, I guess that's why it got cancelled. Do better next time writers. Since nothing is resolved in the one season, I recommend simply skipping this show entirely.
