Might as well make a thread for this. Comes out in one month! I never read the Alias comic books, so this will be all new to me. Looks like it will be "quite dark"....

Corporate CockSnogger 10-23-2015 01:52 PM

I know very little about the source, but I'm looking forward to David Tennant as Purple Man

Slik 10-23-2015 02:16 PM

This looks pretty good

Rammsteinmad 10-23-2015 03:30 PM

Typical "is that black guy Luke Cage?" question right here.

Lock Jaw 10-23-2015 04:03 PM

Yes. Yes, he is.

Jura 10-23-2015 06:12 PM

Is Jon Jones ducking Jessica Jones?

Shadow 10-24-2015 04:31 PM

God damn Tennant. You're gonna make this fucking series work.

The Destroyer 10-25-2015 04:50 AM

Never really followed Jessica Jones in the comics so I wasn't too excited when this first got announced. Trailer makes it look pretty good though. :y:

Alias is actually extremely good. You should look it up. Can't find it on marvel unlimited because it's a max title but it's totally worth reading.

Corporate CockSnogger 11-19-2015 06:41 PM

Just renewed Netflix membership. 20 minutes to go. Let's do thisssss.

Corporate CockSnogger 11-19-2015 06:46 PM

Damm. Maybe not. Just read it'll be uploaded at midnight America time. I'm sure Daredevil was uploaded midnight UK time on our Netflix.

Oh well. I'll just watch some in the morning before work instead of tonight.

ClockShot 11-19-2015 08:36 PM

Holding off on watching this until after Thanksgiving.

On vacation then and I'll have something to watch.

Broken Wheel 11-20-2015 06:36 AM

So far so good.
Might limit myself to 2 a day to stretch it out.

Corporate CockSnogger 11-20-2015 06:42 AM

Purple Man has a good level of creepiness in the first ep. Think I'm gonna try and watch a couple of episodes tomorrow morning, then hinge whatever's left on Sunday.

The Destroyer 11-20-2015 07:59 AM

Might start on this later today but I'm feeling a bit burned out on TV, been playing catchup since I got back from holiday. Reviews look good, so hopefully it's going to be up to Daredevil standards.

Shadow 11-20-2015 08:54 AM

Will watch the first episode of this or so with dinner tonight then do the rest at work or something.

Tammy 11-20-2015 09:24 AM

Jessica makes me milky and horny call me at 914-966-0600 or text me heyKIRA at #45678

Slik 11-20-2015 09:40 AM

Super looking forward to this series. Going to try and binge it over the weekend.

Kalyx triaD 11-21-2015 02:48 PM

On the last two eps left.

SPOILER: show
Purple Man needs his own show.

Lock Jaw 11-21-2015 08:00 PM

So, I finished this already.

SPOILER: show
Overall a very dark show. Overall, not sure I liked it more than Daredevil, but was pretty sweet.

Killgrave the most creepy evil villain possible. The feeling of tension and paranoia was almost "too intense" sometimes.... I can't even "fathom" a being with that kind of powers and what he could do....

Not sure how a season 2 could possibly top this season. How do you from something as intensely personal and threatening as this, to go to investigating a shady company behind your origins......

VSG 11-21-2015 09:11 PM

Halfway through the season and I like it. Not as much as Daredevil but this can definitely stand on its own. I just wonder if this is going to go like Heroes with a villain that can't be matched in future seasons.

Corporate CockSnogger 11-22-2015 07:29 AM

Fight scenes are a bit shit. All Jessica does is throw people or lift them off the ground. I don't think she's even thrown a punch yet.

I guess it sort of makes sense since she's not trained to be a fighter, just has super strength, just doesn't make for extremely interesting fight scenes.

Corporate CockSnogger 11-22-2015 07:30 AM

Tennant is Fantastic though.

Lock Jaw 11-22-2015 02:51 PM

Spent last night trying to sleep, but pondering this show...

SPOILER: show
Like, I really don't know what the right course of action would have been....

Jessica decided not to kill Killgrave at first, but to try to get evidence to save Hope..... but as a result many more lives were destroyed and Hope killed herself (which was devastating, BTW).... All stuff that Jessica couldn't know would happen, but still....

Had they killed him when they first had the chance, a lot of death, pain, and misery could have been spared.... but Hope would have been stuck in jail for 20 years....

Essentially, Simpson was right from the beginning in calling that they should kill him... being able to see things from an "objective" POV.... but I guess Jessica was hoping to get some sort of justice, not only for Hope, but for herself as well....

But then had to give up all Hope on getting justice, and finally just settled for ending it....

VSG 11-22-2015 03:55 PM

Yeah pretty much. Now that I finished the season I understand that
SPOILER: show
the partnership in the middle of the season was never going to work either even if I wanted it to go on longer.

Kalyx triaD 11-22-2015 05:34 PM

Finished it.

SPOILER: show
- Nice that Claire's essentially the Agent Coulson of these shows.
- Kilgrave was just menacing. And kind of hilarious. But yeah scary.
- Great Hellcat sequence when 'Patsy' got the super steroids. Wonder how far this operation goes and if any big players (AIM, Hydra) are involved.
- If Luke has connections to the experiments Kilgrave was subject to, were they connected to IGH as well? I thought they were going that direction but I guess not.
- Even more reveals of how absolutely horrifying the final battle of Avengers was for people.
- Two Defenders down, two to go.

dronepool 11-22-2015 06:03 PM

Awesome show.

Kilgrave is probaly MCU's creepiest villain yet. Loved him and everybody else.

Kalyx triaD 11-22-2015 06:08 PM

Reuben's twin sister/lover whatever that was is the most bizarre character and story arc I've seen in some time.
SPOILER: show
Dude's face when he took her to her bro's resting place was basically my face. "You're in to me, I get it. The romantic backdrop, it's working." Fucking wow.


After today I'm not gonna be on this spoiler tag thing just like DD. You had a weekend. Ye be warned.

Lock Jaw 11-22-2015 06:43 PM

A weekend really isn't "appropriate time" for spoilers.... but yeah, people should probably just stay out...

SPOILER: show
On the subject of the twin sister.... I believe she said "It's not working" about the "romantic backdrop"..... Also, I don't know why you put twin sister/lover.... did not get the "lover" vibe after they said they were twins.... Just two very weird, probably mentally challenged in some way, people.....

Kalyx triaD 11-22-2015 06:46 PM

SPOILER: show
I'm pretty sure it was implied there was weird shit going on especially with how she assumed Jessica was in to him but sure, maybe I took a crack Jessica made overly serious.

CSL 11-22-2015 06:53 PM

4 episodes in, much better than Daredevil. Probably the most interesting thing Marvel have done on TV or film for me if it continues this way.

Rammsteinmad 11-23-2015 05:12 PM

Did you enjoy Daredevil, though?

CSL 11-23-2015 08:26 PM

eventually, first 4-5 episodes felt like a giant slog (although I'm good with slow-burn stuff, I don't think that was the case, just thought it was pretty dull) so I'll check out season 2. Have liked this from episode 1 however.

mitchables 11-24-2015 04:21 AM

i'm about six episodes in, digging it heaps and v impressed etc but my issue is less with the show itself than its role in the mcu and what it says about how fractured marvel's 'shared' universe has gotten when you've got not only major franchise characters that can't be referred to by name ("the big green guy", "the flag waver" etc) or their actions only get referred to in passing ("the incident", "dropping a city out of the sky"), not to mention the barely noticeable tv adventures of s.h.i.e.l.d, but you've got two shows on the same freaking network/streaming service/whatever that are supposed to be part and parcel of establishing a big ol' team-up show down the line but feel barely related at this stage. maybe i am speaking out of turn having not yet watched to the conclusion, i don't know.

i know there's a crossover still to come with the night nurse and all but like... no passing reference to the vigilante running around hell's kitchen? the fact that there were like... several explosions in a few days in the neighbourhood? daredevil was literally all over the frigging news in his own show, but to watch jessica jones you wouldn't know it. there have been plenty of opportunities for throwaway references - not even direct ones TO murdock, but even just things in his universe; jeri could've offered to refer hope's case to the other big firm that matt and foggy left to start theirs, for example, just to show this is still the same borough, much less the same universe.

just seems weird that on arrow/flash, every other week it's "cisco whipped this up at star labs" or "i sent this to caitlin" or "barry couldn't be here", or once or twice a season, "holy shit it's barry and caitlin and cisco" and it's like, YEAH, arrow and flash SHARE a universe. this is nice. this is good. this is how it should be. it's not JUST the payoff of having robert downey jr show up at the end of your hulk movie so that it can be claimed to be 'in continuity'; especially on tv, it's the week-to-week reminders that this is still a part of something bigger that also count.

i get that jessica jones, being a max book, technically occupied her own little corner of the marvel universe anyway, but her best friend was carol danvers and she solved cases for superheroes and luke cage became an avenger, so she didn't exist in a vacuum. and with things moving towards defenders faster than they seem prepared for, i don't know if playing it the same way they played the pre-avengers films - ie completely separately - is the best path to take. or, if it is, then the singular 'shared universe' maybe doesn't matter off the big-screen as much as we thought it did.

mitchables 11-24-2015 04:22 AM

tl;dr: show is amazing but the singular mcu seems increasingly vague and unnecessary

VSG 11-24-2015 08:40 AM

Keep watching but yeah nothing like what CW does.

Broken Wheel 11-24-2015 10:10 AM

Will have to see wha tthe Second season of Daredevil does as well as Luke Cage

Frank Drebin 11-24-2015 11:33 AM

Solid show. Dark as fuck. Wasn't impressed with the villain at first but he wound up being one of the best. Not really interested in a Luke Cage show to go along with Jones and DD though. Whatever. Really enjoyed this.
