‘Jessica Jones’ is available on Netflix TODAY. Cancel your weekend plans and let the binge watch commence.
Whether you’re a fan of the comics or not, the new TV series has been described addictive and incredibly enjoyable. Krysten Ritter plays a boozy private detective residing in Hell’s Kitchen. The same sprawling metropolis backdrop as sister show, Daredevil. In typical Marvel style, she has a super hero infused past.
Rachael Taylor plays Trish Walker, Jones’ best friend. Carrie Anne Moss is depicting a merciless lawyer, Jeryn Hogarth. Nick Cage’s offspring, the attractively elusive, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) will also feature. David Tennant will be appearing as Hell’s Kitchen inhabitant, Kilgrave.
In an effort to quash PTSD, Jones resolves to get blind drunk. Through a series of flashbacks, the viewer is given an brief insight into her past. Due to the nature of her case load, it becomes unavoidable to deal with.
After Hope (Erin Moriarty), a young promising athlete goes missing her parents hire Jones. Resulting from going through the motions of the case, Jones’ past is brought to the forefront.
New to the Marvel universe? Not a problem, this series caters to newcomers. Remember the Avengers and Loki had a massive fight in the first Avengers film? (If not here’s a snippet for your viewing pleasure) Hell’s Kitchen is basically New York City post fight. You can expect a few slight nods to this. *Take Note* Our enigmatic hot mess of a bartender, Luke Cage is due to get his own series soon.
Melissa Rosenberg, the executive producer of Jessica Jones changed the sex of Jeryn Hogarth and also made her a lesbian. Expect an affair with her secretary, Pam. Which adds fuel to the fire with a entangled break up with her wife. Arguably Rosenberg’s most well known work is associated with Twilight.
Jessica Jones is a controversial protagonist and in some cases an architect of her own troubles. Her methods can be deemed as questionable and may lead viewers to dislike her. Personally I’m intrigued.
The full series is now available to stream on Netflix.
