Storyline

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 »

Good Noir Style Superhero Show
25 September 2018 | by mto10See all my reviews

Jessica Jones, the second of the Marvel Netflix shows was absolutely amazing when it's first season came out. However, season 2 of this show takes a step in the wrong direction and is notably worse.

Overall, the show is as dark and gritty as Daredevil is, mixed with a bit of dark humor as well. Jessica Jones is a good, noir style superhero show, that kind of fills a niche that wasn't previously filled before. One could argue that the first season actually has horror and thriller elements mixed in with it. This makes the show even better. The villain for season 1, Kilgrave, was absolutely incredible and is the highlight of the show. Played to perfection by David Tennant, you're glued to the screen whenever he's on. Krysten Ritter is also perfect as the sarcastic Jessica Jones. The casting made great choices there, although Marvel always does tend to make good casting decisions anyway. My least favorite part of season 1 being the character of Malcolm. In my opinion, this character is just pointless, and doesn't really add anything to the show.

I believe since the first season was so good, it tips the scale in a better direction for the show. However, if season 3 is as bad as season 2, that may change. For right now, Jessica Jones is still the third best of the Marvel Netflix shows, behind Daredevil and Punisher.

My Rating: 8.0/10
