November 6, 2017
Eschewing the popcorn entertainment approach taken with most of the films (Captain America: The Winter Soldier notwithstanding), this is an up close look at the dark side of superheroics.

As a measure of solidarity to survivors and as an education for those who want to understand abuse beyond the statistics, it's hard to imagine a better show.

Jessica Jones is a seriously enjoyable and smart addition to the seemingly endless Marvel media takeover. You don't have to be a diehard comic-book fan to dig into this neo-noir Netflix series.

Jessica Jones really is as phenomenal as the reviews have been saying.
April 25, 2017
Somebody has worked really hard here at laying on the murk and gloom (it's so dark at times it makes Christopher Nolan's Batman movies look like the campy 60s series).

Embarrassing as it is to admit, it is only now, at twenty four years old that I am longing to be a superhero. Because Jessica Jones doesn't have to smile. Jessica Jones can be angry. Jessica Jones can say no.

The strength of the characters... more than makes up for the plot's shortcomings.

One thing is certain: Jessica Jones has proved a game-changer when it comes to super-heroes, anti-heroes and survivor narratives. The rest of the industry will need to up its game accordingly.

It made my heart beat in ways that an addict knows only after unexpectedly encountering a conquered substance. It pulled me in, not because of any longing for any particular character, but because the entire world yearned to be watched.

In a genre format that is often reflexively juvenile about sexuality, Jessica Jones is distinctly adult, an allegory that is unafraid of ugliness.
December 9, 2015
This is a supernatural drama of the first order, with the human condition of its anti-heroine also in sharp focus. Once you start watching, you may not be able to put her down.

December 4, 2015
A decent, slow-burn character piece with a killer ending.
December 2, 2015
As great as the show's antagonist and very intriguing supporting characters are, Krysten Ritter is the standout here, giving Jessica her trademark unapologetic attitude.

November 25, 2015
While Jessica Jones is a part of the Marvel Universe, Jessica belongs to no one but herself, just as her story belongs to every woman who has known both failure and triumph in the everyday heroics of the battle with her own demons.
November 24, 2015
Flawed heroine fights evil in a darkly sexy, violent world.

November 24, 2015
It's shot through with compassion and intelligence, with even minor characters growing over the course of the 13 episodes. It's thrillingly visceral (especially the bit with the shears...) and frightening, but not childishly nihilistic.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
November 23, 2015
The first episode of Jessica Jones feels far more like a gritty arthouse episode of SVU than a superhero show (and I mean that as a compliment).

Netflix's Jessica Jones is a proud addition to that pantheon, wrapping one of the best TV shows of the year in a woman's struggle to defeat the abuser who nearly ruined her life.
November 21, 2015
[T]he best show on TV...[W]here it goes will surprise you, thrill you, terrify you, and leave you hungry for more. This, my friends, is perfect television.
November 20, 2015
Jones is a darkly compelling anti-heroine, as richly drawn as Tony Soprano or Mad Men's Don Draper. She deserves better than this formulaic escapade that drably blends crime procedural and comic book cliches.
