Once she enters the hotel room, the flashing lights can be seen in the hallway but not in the room. Once she enters the room there are no flashing lights or siren.

Intriguing premise
20 May 2016 | by Tarx309See all my reviews

After having enjoyed the first season of Daredevil very much, I was looking forward to this a lot. On the whole this episode - the premise - didn't disappoint, although it certainly wasn't perfect. It didn't give a very deep look into any of the characters except Jessica, so I can't make any judgements on them yet. Kilgrave, played by David Tennant, looks like a very intriguing villain, and it was only the plot around him that I really cared about in this episode (although that was great). Luke Cage (who will also be getting his own series in September 2016) was also in it for around ten minutes, and was generally fine - although, again, at this very early stage I don't feel I can make any judgements. That being said, after what I saw of him here I'm not exactly hyped for his show. The other major character was Jessica - a very plainly spoken, psychologically disturbed character played by Kristen Ritter. It was very hard to resonate with her or find her at all a charismatic lead, mostly due to her attitudes and one- toneness. Hopefully she'll improve though.

The best part of this episode was the very intriguing ideas and unique story. I will definitely be continuing this show because, after all, this seems to be one of a kind. However one of the only ways the writers were able to advance any plot was to have Kristen Ritter narrating several times throughout the episode - which ultimately just seemed like lazy writing, and was slightly cringe-worthy at times. It was a fairly slow episode, and I hope the pace picks up as the show goes on, but on the whole I would recommend trying this to anyone, and I look forward to see where the plot goes from here.
