Marvel’s Jessica Jones – Review
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
Pass: Its Marvel, the bad guy is David Tenant and he’s so eerie! Jessica is badass! A Marvel Hero that doesn’t want to be a Hero. The story is great and gets pretty dark.. and the ending! :O
Fail: Middle episodes start to make you loose interest, but stick through it, it gets good again! Theres a few storylines your like ?? random.. maybe it’ll come in Season 2 (just announced they are filming!) and don’t watch episodes 10+ while eating.. 😦
• Standout Performance
David Tenant (Always) & Krysten Ritter (Loved her since Breaking Bad)

• See It Now or Wait?

• Overall Impression
Amazing cast and main story, few random filler episodes in the middle but stick to it, it is worth it by eps 9 onwards.. you need a good weekend to go through eps 9-13 to finish it as you won’t be able to stop!
Season 2 announced!
Yesterday they confirmed season 2! Woo but what will happen to Jessica now..
(The second season of Marvel’s Daredevil is scheduled to premiere on March 16th.)
***Spoilers*** – Read no further until you finish Season 1
Okkkkk… Killgrave is dead — praise the All-Father — but the Jessica Jones series lives on. Krysten Ritter‘s amazing turn as the superpowered heroine-turned-private investigator was notable for its nuance and willingness to delve into dark territory. Jessica was shown to be at once fearless and tortured by her past. The loss of her family in her teenage years bonded her to adoptive sister Patsy Walker, but didn’t give her any positive adult influences in new guardian Dorothy. Her further abuse by devious Killgrave pushed her into a life of solitude and booze, but her innate yearning to do the right thing — the noble thing — never wavered through any of it.
Imperfect as her choices and methods of dealing with trauma may be, Jessica Jones is a hell of a character, and the fact that we’ll be getting a full second season is a treat. When Netflix and Marvel‘s Daredevil proved willing to dive into much gorier fare than we’d seen in Marvel’s Phase 1 and Phase 2 movies, Jessica Jones proved that the emotional ramifications of battle, abuse, and even heroism could make for even more jarring storytelling. Where Jessica’s story will go in the second season remains to be seen, but I think it’s fair to assume that Patsy and Malcom will become further enmeshed in Jessica’s Alias Investigations.
According to Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos, we likely won’t see Marvel’s Jessica Jones season 2 until after the premiere of the upcoming The Defenders series, and scheduling the crossovers between Marvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron Fist will take a fair amount of planning that could affect its premiere date.
The second season of Marvel’s Daredevil is scheduled to premiere on March 16th. Woo! 🙂
