| The Netflix-Marvel collaboration is killing it so far!
Just like Jessica Jones' super-human strength, Netflix has proved its own strength in producing yet another high-quality TV series. (Ughh, am I really going to include this sentence…) Jessica Jones is the story about a private investigator, Jessica Jones, an alcoholic retired superhero, who battles with the devil of her past, a mind controller known as Kilgrave. Learning about her rough past and her current problems, we learn that Jessica Jones is a very broken character that proves to be a compelling protagonist.

After an admittedly slightly stale start, the show quickly began to pick up speed. The catalyst for this was the introduction of Kilgrave, the sociopathic adversary to Jessica Jones. His vile, delusional view of the world made him the character that I was most interested in by far. Of course, this was undoubtedly aided by David Tennant's stand- out performance. He owned every scene he was in, and was able to capture the anger and sadness of Kilgrave perfectly. Kilgrave might just well be one of the best Marvel villains portrayed on the screen. Not to mention his regular use of British expressions that make him a very likable enemy.

In general, all of the performances were very good, especially Krysten Ritter's sarcastic, threatening portrayal of Jessica Jones. The show looks very good as well; the shady, gritty streets of Hell's Kitchen were very good at reflecting the dark nature of the show.

However, this show does have a few faults. The main part of the show was about Jessica Jones vs. Kilgrave, but there were quite a few distractions that seemed to distract from the main plot. For example, I really didn't care too much about the Hogarth divorce fiasco, it all seemed to take away the impact of the Jones/Kilgrave relationship. Cutting out the unnecessary parts would have made a shorter, yet better-quality show.

After the high expectations set from Netflix's previous endeavour – Daredevil – I am pleased to say that Jessica Jones did not disappoint (mostly). If anything, Jessica Jones does go even deeper and darker into the Marvel universe than its predecessor, frequently dealing with complex issues such as sexual abuse and murder. Like Daredevil, this show is very drama focused. Most of the characters do use their abilities on the side-line (with the exception to this rule being Kilgrave… obviously). This does allow for a very fresh perspective to the superhero genre, especially when compared to the very action- heavy films that Marvel produces. Overall, Jessica Jones is a very dark, enthralling show, and it provides a solid foundation for the build- up to The Defenders.

Would You Watch 'Crazy Rich Avengers'?

Captain Marvel star Gemma Chan would ... so she created the ultimate Crazy Rich Asians crossover, and even assigned Avengers roles to co-stars like Henry Golding.
