    So far so :cool:. I watched the first 2 and I plan on catching the next 2 (maybe 4) during the Thanksgiving break.
    Hopefully, this doesn't get to the big climax midseason and then manage to crawl towards the finish line. After all, there may be enough characters, relationships and story here, this time around, to gradually build tension and momentum. J Jones's fits of rage might even get worse the closer she gets to Killgrave's trail.

    I think it makes more sense to keep most of the Jessica Jones discussion here instead of 13 individual episode threads. All the episodes got released at once.

    Really good season. Great performances by all of the main cast, especially Krysten Ritter and David Tennant. Jessica Jones is a very well rounded character who has gone through some terrible events in her life, but she keeps getting up and keeps fighting.

    David Tennant was terrifying. Just pure evil incarnate. It's frightening because he's capable of just about anything. His evil has no depth.

    I will say a lot of story and writing misteps were made in the last few episodes. There's a bit too much of certain subplots that they spend way too much time on. I think the fighting was also not executed as well as Daredevil. Overall though, a good start to the show.

    These are the dark corners of the world the Avengers dare not look.

    I already knew going in I wouldn't be getting that kind of direction since this show's fighters are clearly flexing their super powers (Cage showing mild interest whilst flinging a guy with just a head tap :D). That bar fight in the 2nd ep was exceptional; the highlight of an ok episode.
    o_O Something's amiss ^.
    Did you finish?

    Mostezli, not sure why, but maybe you aren't seeing my complete post? I was just saying in my opinion there were some writing missteps in the last few episodes. Some choices I didn't completely agree with. Not a deal breaker though.

    @TheVileOne Yeah, my bad. I mistook "good start to the show" for the first few ep of the season.

    Marvel does a good job with their fight scene direction. Every character seems to have a signature fighting style or lack thereof as is the case here with Jessica and Luke. Jessica is super strong, but not invulnerable. So she doesn't fight when she doesn't have to and is somewhat careful how she chooses her fights. I didn't like that she only got taken out by a wooden beam from her annoying neighbor. Luke is invulnerable but not trained.

    4/22: Jessica Jones got a Peabody Award.

    9/11: Won a Creative Arts Emmy in "Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music"

    11/21: Pre-orders for the Zavvi exclusive Steelbook began earlier today. It's at 29.99 pounds currently.

    The regular version of the DVD and Blu-Ray are also up for pre-order, but unlike the steelbook, these are Region B/2 only. Also on Amazon UK. Still, this is likely going to be the cover for the US release. Since they're out December 5 in the UK, best guess is the USA release will be January based on the Daredevil release schedule.

    11/26: Season 1 is now on iTunes. You can watch the season for $29.99/
