Last week, I reviewed the first seven episodes of "Jessica Jones." Now that I've seen the full season, I have some more specific thoughts — with lots of spoilers for everything — coming up just as soon as they have free express shipping in Heaven... For the most part, my opinion's unchanged from the review based on the series' first half: Krysten Ritter and David Tennant were both great, Mike Colter has me eager to see him in the Luke Cage series, and this is easily the best of the Marvel TV shows so far, taking advantage of the creative freedom of Netflix to tell a really dark and unflinching story that did right by the source material. But certain things I was worried about became slightly more worrisome by the end, while other things wound up impressing me more than they did early on. Going point-by-point: There weren't really 13 episodes of story here. »

Spoilers for tonight's "The Walking Dead" coming up just as soon as there are people in my proximity with open toed shoes... Yup. They screwed it up. Even more than I imagined they could at first. The morning after "Thank You" aired — and after Scott Gimple's weird statement to "Talking Dead" (more on that in a bit) — I wrote that the series had inadvertently created a no-win scenario, by turning what had seemed to be Glenn's certain death into something more ambiguous after the fact. As a result, one of two things was going to happen: 1)Fans upset that one of their favorite characters had suffered such a meaningless death would be given false hope, then made even angrier because Glenn was really dead; or 2)Glenn's survival, no matter the mechanism, would not only render him (and Rick, Carol, and other core characters) invulnerable going forward, but obliterate the »

On Friday, Netflix premieres the first season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” — and one of the revelations of this interview with executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is that there’s a chance the show might film a second season before a planned “Defenders” series. The drama is part of a cycle of Netflix-Marvel shows that includes “Daredevil” and an upcoming Luke Cage series starring Mike Colter, who also appears in “Jessica Jones” alongside star Krysten Ritter.
Of course, a second season of “Jessica Jones” hasn’t been officially greenlit, but Rosenberg said she is raring to go if Netflix and Marvel give her the go-ahead. By the way, this interview is safe to read if you haven’t seen the show yet — and it’s also worth pointing out that you don’t need to have seen any other Marvel TV shows or movies in order to enjoy “Jessica Jones, »

Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Marvel's Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of Ptsd, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check. It's time the world knew her name.
And that time comes tomorrow! But while we all wait patiently to binge watch all 13 episodes at once, Netflix as released the opening credit sequence. Though, it is presented without any of those pesky credits getting in the way. It's an artful, comic book inspired way to introduce us to the show. And it's pretty cool. You can either wait until midnight to see this with credits in tact. Or »
With only a few hours left before hitting Netlfix, the opening title sequence is now online for the highly-anticipated original series Marvel's Jessica Jones, which will premiere on November 20, 2015 at 12:01am Pt in all territories where Netflix is available. I'm actually looking forward to seeing this Marvel series.
Check it out below.
The wait's almost over. A little something to get you through the next twelve hours. #JessicaJones https://t.co/CLroWR3xHu

The Netflix original series Marvel’s Jessica Jones is the second of four epic live-action adventure series (Marvel’s Daredevil, which launched April 10th, Marvel’s Luke Cage and Marvel’s Iron Fist, all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders) to premiere only on Netflix. It is a suspenseful, edgy look into the life of Jessica Jones, one of the most popular new Marvel characters of the last decade, »

Melissa Rosenberg may not be the woman that Marvel deserves, but the TV veteran and former screenwriter of the Twilight series is definitely the woman that Marvel needs right now. When told that her new Netflix superhero series Jessica Jones feels like a corrective to the way that women have been represented in previous comic-book stories, the veteran screenwriter and showrunner can barely stifle her laughter: "Yeah, that wasn't an accident."
There are no half-measures with Jessica Jones — and certainly no attempts to placate a male audience that's grown accustomed »
I thought my superhero fatigue was incurable. Then I watched "Marvel's Jessica Jones." The Netflix show, premiering Friday and starring Krysten Ritter, is an irresistible feminist noir. I didn't actually plan to binge-watch all seven review episodes. But, like one of the victims of its mind-controlling supervillain (played with great relish by David Tennant), I just couldn't help myself. The show, created by Melissa Rosenberg ("Dexter," the "Twilight" movie series), is steeped in the trappings of the detective genre: Its protagonist is a "hard-drinking, short-fused mess of a woman" who narrates in voiceover and makes a living as a private eye while trying to forget her past. And her past is where the Marvel branding comes in: After using her superpowers (strength; kind-of flying) in a brief stint as a caped crusader, her life was derailed when she crossed paths with a man named Kilgrave (Tennant), who took her hostage via mind control (a. »

"Marvel's Jessica Jones" releases its 13-episode first season on Netflix this Friday, and based on the first reviews, you might want to carve out some time in an already-crowded fall. Starring Krysten Ritter as a semi-retired superhero-turned-private eye, the series, created by "Dexter" and "The O.C." veteran Melissa Rosenberg, continues "Daredevil's" practice of using the episodic format and lack of broadcast restrictions to push the kinds of stories Marvel properties can tell. "Jessica Jones" is about saving the world than saving one's self, with Ritter's Jones still reeling from the psychological trauma inflicted by David Tennant's Kilgrave during her stint as a costumed crimefighter. Even in the seven episodes provided to critics, the precise nature of that trauma remains somewhat vague, but the reviews agree that RItter fills in the expository gaps with a strong, clear performance, almost unrecognizable from her turns on...

'Hard day at the office?" Luke Cage asks a beat down P.I. in search of the elusive Purple Man in the second full-length trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones. The diminutive superhero throws back plenty of hard booze in this sneak peak at Netflix's next Marvel adventure. Jones makes it perfectly clear that she has a drinking problem. This doesn't lead to a lot of second dates. But that's okay, she has a date with destiny. And her destiny is an evil, power mad mind manipulator that goes by the name Kilgrave.
