It is a Marvel piece more concerned with aftermath than origin, which is a major change of pace for the brand.

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.

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.

Nov 20, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Jessica Jones is well-executed on the level we've come to expect from Netflix-produced series, featuring a top-notch cast, solid writing and great use of its New York location to invoke both classic noir and '70s cinema.

Jessica Jones is more psychologically complex, acknowledging how painful it can be to flee, to be free - even when you have an iron fist.

The cast treats the dime-novel dialogue ("I don't flirt. I just say what I want.") with such richness that you won't miss the explosions that often deafen other shows in the genre.

Jessica Jones manages to be faithful to Brian Michael Bendis comic books and, at the same time, to get a fresh and fun take on a complex and dark character. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 25, 2019 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

Jessica Jones walks a fine line in engaging me on dramatic, emotional and thematic levels while not making me feel overwhelmed by the constant assault on my senses.

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Kristen Ritter's performance as the titular hero, who resists her calling at every turn, is truly stunning to watch. Each episode charts her inner struggle to winning effect, and sheds a light on the true consequences of trauma.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Ritter is great, switching effortlessly between ruthless, detached efficiency and believable vulnerability.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1

    It was fun but lacking. It seems that it was trying too hard at not trying.
  • Jun 05, 2019
    One of the strongest seasons of television.

    Amazing show love this superhero I love everything about it

    The stylistic traits of a traditional noir narrative sometimes feel forced in, but 'Jessica Jones' isn't ultimately hampered by them as it takes on the much more appropriate tone of a turbulent psychological thriller. Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg tackles punishingly tough material with a deft hand that, while totally and completely engrossing, treats its subject matter with respect and tact. Add to that the intelligent writing that reads on a literal and metaphorical level, and you've got some of the best craftsmanship in the entire MCU catalogue. But none of it would matter if Krysten Ritter couldn't pull off the damaged nuance the reluctant leading role demands, and she does so with flying, smashingly snarky colors. David Tennant is also every bit as great as Jessica's evil foil and perpetrator, the scenery-chomping Purple Man, another top-tier villain whose horrifying stamp on everyone involved won't soon be forgotten.

    Lackluster script. Villain is the best part and even he isn't that strong of a character.
  • Feb 20, 2019
    This season was really good. Jessica's story keeps you interested as you learn more about why she is how she is. David Tennant's Killgrave is one of the best villains I've seen.
  • Feb 01, 2019
    A beautifully produced series that may not deliver much in the action department, but more than makes up for it with an incredibly developed protagonist, exceptional performances, tension packed drama, and a truly unforgettable season villain.

    Accidentally posted S2 review for S1. Anyway S1 was great. Honestly surprised how much i liked it. Characters are engaging and the storyline well written. Definite binge material. Lets hope S3 gets back to this level

    Incredible. David Tennant was incredible! So good I’ve watched it a few times.

    I never found myself board watching Jessica Jones and the hours just flew by.
