Painfully slow. Uninteresting characters except for Luke Cage. Stupid storyline. The only reason I finished the series is because I had invested, wasted, so much time watching the first two episodes.
...not good...not skillful..somewhat entertaining...I was not in the mood for the porny scenes.
But if I were looking for it , I may choose this . Wonder Woman rules !
Jessica Jones has to be one of the most underrated female characters in all of Marvel. She has such an interesting backstory and throughout this series you slowly learn of it. You also see Jessica change and grow during each episode which is something that is very inspiring. She is supported by fun, enjoyable characters as well as a cameo by another Netflix Marvel hero. I have to say, one of my favourite things about this show was the villain and flashback sequences. It all was done so nicely and flowed perfectly. The final couple episodes had me at the edge of my seat. @sideswipefirefight of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
The damsel in distress is a drunken cinderella set in a big city. She is surrounded by men saving her, or wanting to save her. Ownership plays a huge role throughout this story, not so sure it works well. It lacks common sense but when has that ever stopped Marvel which is branded all over this series. Maybe different casting would have helped. Watch it if you really want too but honestly you are not missing much.
A pleasant surprise- perhaps because I can't stand the writer who created the character in the comics. To be fair, Jessica Jones as written by other comics writers is far less obnoxious than when she's been written by Bendis, and that's certainly the case in this adaptation, which other writers take and adapt the concept and move it into new directions over this first season. Ritter is terrific as the lead, giving her a hard edge, cynicism, and just the right amount of sympathy as the self destructive, traumatized powered-up private investigator. Tennant gives the malevolent Kilgrave a gleeful, dangerous energy in his performance.
I enjoyed this and really love Krysten Ritter as JJ. I will say that maybe Killgrave should have been revealed later in the series and perhaps played by an actor who had a more maniacal manner about them. When JJ confronts Killgrave about their past relationship, I expected a bit more emotion than I saw, but no big worries. Seeing Luke Cage in here was great too, and the way that the series progressed there were some perhaps telegraphed but nevertheless satisfying moments. Very interested to see how Season Two plays out.
After watched a bit more than the first two episodes, still didn’t know the origin of the antihero Jones, where the story was going, or how many Jones' fellow super beings would show up; anticipation not rewarded with answers. Also, unlike "Mr. Robot," Jones is just a low cost Netflix series but without an original story. While the mandatory stunt actions were frequent, it included too often lengthy unnecessary bedroom scenes.
Fearful to be sucked into watching the full 13 nearly hour long episodes, decided to cut my losses. Eject and return as I did with other comic book TV show "Witchblade," "Supergirl" and "The Flash." May be time to hit a book instead.
regretfully (4) BR discs dint leave leftover space for any commentary / bonus / or extras content.
Where the first season of Daredevil took a few episodes to really hook me, Jessica Jones hooked me from the first few minutes. Really great, really gutsy - the perfect female-led series in a sea of sugary, sing-songy (is that a real word?) shows that are usually geared towards women.
Jessica Jones is a superhero, but is loath to accept it if you call her that. She is a foul-mouthed survivor, drinking to cope with her PTSD and everyday life. Regardless, she is one of the most efficient private detectives in Hell's Kitchen, NY. She just wants to keep to herself (and keep the lights on at Alias Investigations), until Kilgrave, a man from her past with the ability to control minds, shows up looking for her.
JESSICA JONES is artfully made from casting to costumes to cinematography. If you can binge-watch this series, I completely understand; it's outstanding. That being said, this show is NOT for children. The story is unsettling and occasionally horrifying. Many of these characters are selfish and make questionable decisions, all while dealing with rape, assault, alcoholism - among other issues.
I can't wait to watch what happens in Season 2, but in the meantime, I'm going to start reading the comics.
Wow! Viewers who are about to check into the world of Jessica Jones, you're going to be blown away from this next Marvel entry. This is not your very typical superhero show...this is more of a psychological thriller. Jessica Jones is a netflix series up to date for the Marvel Universe--adapted from Brian Michael Bendis' source material. This tells a tale of a sardonic, alcoholic, and a dark-edged detective saving an innocent victim from a notorious monster who likes to manipulate people by doing terrible and unmerciful things from his mind control gift. Jessica Jones is not only a great show, it's very deep that explores themes of sexuality, rape, and abuse. To give you a heads up, there are some moments in the series that can be disturbing due this monster who force people to do very bad things.
