When Marvel announced they were doing a Jessica Jones series i was a lil confused, why this, why not any other character. I had seen her in comics but did not knout her know much about her other than Luke Cage butt fucks her. Daredevil was great so shy not, lets give it a shot. I am glad i did, one, Krysten Ritter i have never been big on, hot yes, but her credits are not the nest(save Breaking Bad) but here she works, it features one of my favorite characters Luke Cage. Now before i go on with more of what works let me focus in on Cage, he is not how i imagined him to be on film yet his fight scenes work, his relationship with Jessica is believable i would rather have a 60s/70s style blaxploitation Cage but i will settle for this. Marvel has never had the best villains in my mind yet the ones of their shows have been greatly cast, first Vincent D'Onofrio as the Kingpin now David Tennant as Killgrave. The character is not memorable in the comic yet here he pops with charisma, almost more than Loki does, he runs with the role and it is a slowburn, first half he is mysterious and rarely seen, the second half he is all over it. Tennant has always had charisma, hell he is one of the bright spots of Doctor Who for me, but his wit & the way he carries himself is second to none! The supporting characters also work, Jessica's apartment has a set of twins and a drug addict, the later of which becomes one of the best parts of the show. The fights can look repetitive but the payoff is worth it, their is blood throughout the series, and it is quite awesome to see. I love seeing how the underbelly of the MCU is, and little aspects that the Avengers would not notice, the crime of Daredevil, the mystery of Jessica Jones, and once these tv characters come together for the Defenders, and once the Defenders meet the Avengers, it will be epic! THe Night Nurse of my lovely Rosario Dawson returns and plays a major part in the finale, the easter eggs & references are dropped and seeds are planted, this is going to be a great ride!
