Good Noir Style Superhero Show
Jessica Jones, the second of the Marvel Netflix shows was absolutely amazing when it's first season came out. However, season 2 of this show takes a step in the wrong direction and is notably worse.
Overall, the show is as dark and gritty as Daredevil is, mixed with a bit of dark humor as well. Jessica Jones is a good, noir style superhero show, that kind of fills a niche that wasn't previously filled before. One could argue that the first season actually has horror and thriller elements mixed in with it. This makes the show even better. The villain for season 1, Kilgrave, was absolutely incredible and is the highlight of the show. Played to perfection by David Tennant, you're glued to the screen whenever he's on. Krysten Ritter is also perfect as the sarcastic Jessica Jones. The casting made great choices there, although Marvel always does tend to make good casting decisions anyway. My least favorite part of season 1 being the character of Malcolm. In my opinion, this character is just pointless, and doesn't really add anything to the show.
I believe since the first season was so good, it tips the scale in a better direction for the show. However, if season 3 is as bad as season 2, that may change. For right now, Jessica Jones is still the third best of the Marvel Netflix shows, behind Daredevil and Punisher.
My Rating: 8.0/10
