Jupiter's Legacy, on Netflix, is another of those opaque titles with no discernable meaning: no character named Jupiter, no reference to the planet Jupiter. Maybe a reference to astrology? After three episodes, I've noticed four distinct plot threads:
2. Flashback to Black Friday, 1929. Young Sheldon and his brother Walter (Ben Daniels, shown here with his boyfriend) try to keep their steel company from going bankrupt (wait -- so Sheldon is about 120 years old?). Their Dad commits suicide by jumping off a building, but then starts appearing to Sheldon and berating him.
3. Still in 1929, George (Matt Lanter) is ultra rich -- every morning he has his chef prepare 100 boiled eggs to choose from (tell me that he donates the leftovers to a homeless shelter). He's also obviously gay, with fey mannerisms and multiple rings, constantly flirting with men, treating women as friends. He even starts his day by listening to the old jazz song "Painting the Clouds with Sunshine," which begins "Pretending to be gay..." (the old meaning, of course, but obviously symbolic).
4. Back in the present, Hutch (Ian Quinlan) is the leader of a criminal gang in an underworld where most people have superpowers. He doesn't, but he has a magical rod that will zap him to anywhere he wants to go (it's also good for killing people; just tell it to go to his target's heart).
Gay Characters: Hutch's criminal teammates. Obviously George, son or not, although in the original comic books, he's straight. Hutch will apparently start a relationship with Chloe, the Utopian's daughter.
