Coming off the success of Daredevil, Marvel TV moved into uncharted territory: a Marvel Studios production of a solo, powered, female protagonist. She also happens to be a bit of an a-hole.
With Jessica Jones, the subject matter is dark and painful, the relationships are raw and damaged (so is the lead), and the villain is the most terrifying ever brought to a superhero show. And that’s just the first episode. The series starts with such a commanding, deafening bang that it instantly becomes impossible to ignore, and even moreso impossible to shake.
