The Complete First Season ignites a firestorm of suspense cloaked in the haze of a noir-inspired slow burn. Haunted by a tragedy that broke her world apart, Jessica Jones settles in Hell's Kitchen, New York City, and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, with the hope of rebuilding her life and keeping the lights on in her apartment. She discovers that the source of her trauma, a mind-controlling sociopath named Kilgrave, has resurfaced.

The Many Talents of David Tennant

If you haven’t been on any device with ads for the last few months then you probably won’t be familiar with David Tennant’s smirking face as he embodies the demon Crowley in the latest book to TV adaptation: Good Omens by Terry Pratchet and Neil Gaiman. If you’ve logged onto anything within the last few months, then you’ll realize that Amazon sunk some serious money into promoting the crap… (more)

Jessica Jones is not the superhero one would expect, and she goes out of her way to be as unlikable as possible. This may leave some viewers feeling uninterested or put off by the show's premise, but stick around and she grows on you. This private eye has a heart of gold but doesn't want the attention that comes with heroism, while doing her best to pay the bills.
As her backstory unfolds, this reluctant lead has to face her fears to save the handful of people she truly cares about -- and New York City at large -- from a nasty villain capable of manipulating anyone into doing anything no matter how sinister. The trauma Jessica endured in the past sets her up to be the only one who can stop the madman included in Rolling Stone's list of the "40 Greatest TV Villains of All Time".

Season 1 is my favorite. I knew nothing about the characters prior to viewing this show. Well-developed plot, engaging, and methodical pace. Enjoyed every episode.

Painfully slow. Uninteresting characters except for Luke Cage. Stupid storyline. The only reason I finished the series is because I had invested, wasted, so much time watching the first two episodes.

Jessica Jones has to be one of the most underrated female characters in all of Marvel. She has such an interesting backstory and throughout this series you slowly learn of it. You also see Jessica change and grow during each episode which is something that is very inspiring. She is supported by fun, enjoyable characters as well as a cameo by another Netflix Marvel hero. I have to say, one of my favourite things about this show was the villain and flashback sequences. It all was done so nicely and flowed perfectly. The final couple episodes had me at the edge of my seat. @sideswipefirefight of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

The damsel in distress is a drunken cinderella set in a big city. She is surrounded by men saving her, or wanting to save her. Ownership plays a huge role throughout this story, not so sure it works well. It lacks common sense but when has that ever stopped Marvel which is branded all over this series. Maybe different casting would have helped. Watch it if you really want too but honestly you are not missing much.

A pleasant surprise- perhaps because I can't stand the writer who created the character in the comics. To be fair, Jessica Jones as written by other comics writers is far less obnoxious than when she's been written by Bendis, and that's certainly the case in this adaptation, which other writers take and adapt the concept and move it into new directions over this first season. Ritter is terrific as the lead, giving her a hard edge, cynicism, and just the right amount of sympathy as the self destructive, traumatized powered-up private investigator. Tennant gives the malevolent Kilgrave a gleeful, dangerous energy in his performance.

I enjoyed this and really love Krysten Ritter as JJ. I will say that maybe Killgrave should have been revealed later in the series and perhaps played by an actor who had a more maniacal manner about them. When JJ confronts Killgrave about their past relationship, I expected a bit more emotion than I saw, but no big worries. Seeing Luke Cage in here was great too, and the way that the series progressed there were some perhaps telegraphed but nevertheless satisfying moments. Very interested to see how Season Two plays out.

After watched a bit more than the first two episodes, still didn’t know the origin of the antihero Jones, where the story was going, or how many Jones' fellow super beings would show up; anticipation not rewarded with answers. Also, unlike "Mr. Robot," Jones is just a low cost Netflix series but without an original story. While the mandatory stunt actions were frequent, it included too often lengthy unnecessary bedroom scenes.

Fearful to be sucked into watching the full 13 nearly hour long episodes, decided to cut my losses. Eject and return as I did with other comic book TV show "Witchblade," "Supergirl" and "The Flash." May be time to hit a book instead.
