I'm really digging the Jessica Jones series on Netflix. I'm enjoying it just as much as I did Daredevil.

It might be the first new series that's not an ORIGIN story. Jessica tried the superhero game briefly, but then set it aside after a traumatic experience and became a private investigator. And the story starts AFTER all that happens. Pretty cool.

I don't want to spoil too much, but it's definitely worth a watch. Really good acting, and a nice film noir story. The villain is one of the scarier/better baddies Marvel has done.

I've been waiting for reviews before jumping into this one but it has caught my ear if not my eye… So you recommend then! Maybe I'll take a gander!

Finished it now…yeah, the first half/two thirds was really great…the final third…, not as great… :D

I enjoyed it for the most part, but it did go off the rails quite a bit in the end. Gotta temper my recommendation somewhat…

It was very good, but suffered from too many episodes or too few antagonists. Kilgrave is certainly one of marvels best villains put to screen but the story with him is dragged out too much.

Ha! So rare for a comic/superhero thing. How many of us webcomicers start out with origin stories? I know I didn't. :)

I occasionally have a drink at that bar (the one where Luke works). It's not too far from where I live.
