Jessica Jones

For the last few days I’ve been binge watching Netflix’s Jessica Jones, and I have to say that I’m really enjoying it! I’m only a few episodes from the series finale, and it was difficult to tear myself away from finishing it. (But I really needed to do some other things today, other than watch Netflix!)

For those who don’t know about it, it’s a Marvel show in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She even lives in the same neighborhood of New York as Daredevil. But while they allude to the Avengers and other things that have happened, so far the show stands well on its own. You don’t need to have seen any of the movies or tv-shows to enjoy this.

Jessica Jones is the typical cynical Private Investigator who drinks a lot, but does a great job. Except of course she’s female, which is refreshing. Look, Marvel – a female can carry a show! Maybe we can get that Black Widow movie too eventually, huh?

Anyway, I don’t want to spoil anything. It’s definitely a show that’s worth a watch though. David Tennant as the main antagonist; Kilgrave, is absolutely brilliant. He’s quite possibly one of my favourite Marvel villains in the cinematic universe yet.

So give it a go. If for no other reason than David Tennant. Because… Well, David Tennant.

  1. Yeah, I uh… I finished this show the Saturday after it was released. Haha. It was pretty amazing. I think Agents of Shield, Agent Carter, and Jessica Jones are all really good (I enjoyed Daredevil, too, but not on the same level) shows in the MCU. If you haven’t watched Agent Carter, you should! It’s about Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest (ish) from the first Captain America movie, and she is so great.

    • I only just re-activated my Netflix, so I’m late to the party! I need to watch Agent Carter, it’s been on my list for a while, but just never got to the point where I started. I started on Agents of Shield, but found the first few episodes a bit… cheesy? I’m told it gets better though, so I want to give it another try. Peggy Carter is definitely a show I will watch though!
