Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
Ever since her short-lived stint as a superhero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic 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.
In the Marvel comics universe, one of Jeri Hogarth's clients is the character Daniel Rand, better known as the super hero Iron Fist. Rand's father, Wendell, was a close friend of Jeri and left the execution of his estate to him (the comics version of Hogarth is male). Jeri does in fact show up in Iron Fist. See more »
A female superhero - a very weird one at that. From the first episode with even the mundane feeling good to say the least. It is not meant to be sexy when the character Jessica Jones undresses to go to sleep (no nudity in case you were wondering) and it's not. And yet it may be the moment you fall in love with her.
Netflix in coorperation I reckon with Marvel, made the best of their own universe. Taking characters and making shows with them. Shows that were different in nature, with their own strengths and their own weaknesses. And as much as I love Jessica Jones as cool as I think (even if predictable) season 3 is, it did have certain things that almost drove me mad. Why you ask? That was what I was asking at character decisions and plot points. But it is as it is - if I am still allowed to use that term.
Jessica Jones is strong, but she is also broken down. She is not unlike the Punisher in some regards, though less filled with anger. She kind of cares, but she kind of doesn't give a ... or any for that matter. What is great is how her "sidekicks" are portrayed and every single other character that is in this. There is a callback and a cameo of one of season 1 characters late in season 3 and overall this has a sort of satisfying end. Still it is weird, that almost every character seems to be up for Disney plus reboot or continuation, except her ... or maybe she is and everything is secret right now? Whatever the case, this is all done and just a tip to anyone rating and reviewing: please wait until either all seasons are done before doing so or review only for any given episode instead of a whole show based on one season alone ...
