COG writes - Netflix has given us a taste of 3/4 of The Defenders team and so far it's some of the best the streaming outlet has to offer. Jessica Jones and Daredevil are unabashed hits while Luke Cage and Iron fist will most definitely follow suit.
Just completed binging Jessica Jones last night, loved it just as much as Daredevil. So far, I'm loving these Netflix Marvel shows far more than the films, and I can only hope that The Defenders is just as great.
TV is going through a really great time right now, so many good shows.
It's actually becoming a huge problem! I think I'm up to roughly 17 shows that I'm either watching, recording or are on my Netflix queue... I don't have time for them all
Yeah me too!
No wonder Netflix shows are getting more traffic than GoT - the quality is freakin' great!
Love everything Netflix is doing with Marvel, excited to see who they cast as Iron Fist.
My 10 yo son and I sat down to watch Jessica Jones...boy was I surprised! Needless to say not everything from Marvel is kid friendly.
Parental discretion is definitely advised! Haha
I would say the movies are for kids (and the inner children in all adults) while the Netflix shows are what you watch after you put the kids to bed.
We both watched Daredevil which wasn't bad. I guess this is the more seedier Marvel Max side of things.
Jessica Jones was the worst show I've seen in years. At least the last 10 years. Everything that needed to be said about that show could have been said in the first 6 shows. I sure hope they fire the writing team and start from scratch on season 2 IF there is a season 2. There was 6 of us watching the show when we started by the end of the run I was explained to all of them what ending was and they all looked at one another and said...thank God we didn't waste our time for that ending. Or and why didn't they do this earlier, like 7 episodes before? There are massive leaps in logic in this series as well. For example in some shows Jessica can take on several well armed, well trained thugs or mercs, but in another gets knocked unconscious by a 2 by 4 from a neighbor?!? Where did she get this 2 by 4 anyway? the lumber yard? Trust me, spend more than 2 seconds analyzing this show and you'll be angry that you even wasted your time seeing this.
The reason she didn't do what she did at the end was because she wanted to get the innocent girl out of jail. That's why the girl did what she did to allow Jessica the freedom to make that decision. As for the 2x4, the neighbor got a lucky shot. It happens. As for where she got it, a lot of people have leftover lumber in their garages/backyards. Using more strength to take out armored guards vs. holding your punch so you don't kill someone make fighting different too. Not many leaps of logic, really.
random 2x4 in a comic book show....why are you even questioning this? although i do agree that her resilience seems to go up or down depending on the situation, that isn't enough to right off the show
Meh, completely disagree with everything you said. This wasn't a show about action and cleaning up the streets like Daredevil. Jessica Jones is much more about abuse and the psychological trauma that goes along with it, and overcoming the self doubt and shame of being victimized and getting justice. JJ has enhanced strength, but she's not impervious to damage. Beating several armed thugs by blocking or avoiding their attacks and putting them down before they can take you out is a lot different than being sucker punched by a 2x4 to the face. Even the best fighters in the world can get knocked out from a well placed blow to the chin.
