Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 Reviews

December 14, 2015
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.

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.

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.

It's packaged as a superhero thriller, but it's much smarter than that.

There's something about Jessica Jones, played expertly on Netflix by Krysten Ritter, that makes me want to get up and shout, "Hell yes!"

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]

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.

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.

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

Krysten Ritter manages to capture its essence, in the moments of drama and anger, in those of hangover and heroism. She is the series. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jessica Jones is a good series that in its setting and its treatment is closer to film noir than to the stories of superheroes. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 25, 2018
Marvel's Jessica Jones doesn't insist on having Jessica's trauma define her. She is deeply affected by her time with Kilgrave, and it's what drives much of her rage and revenge obsession, but it's not the only thing about her.
June 21, 2018
Highly recommended, if not exactly a laff-a-minute.

essica Jones isn't a superhero series; it's super-horror. Marvel's first taste of true terror, flavored with a dash of noir.
June 12, 2018
If you haven't watched Jessica Jones yes, go do it now because it's worth it.
June 12, 2018
It's not a perfect show -- but it's solid, and it's really important.
May 16, 2018
This [show] takes all the characteristics of the hard-drinking, wisecracking private eye and hands them to the femme fatale. And it does so superbly.
December 12, 2017
However, much like the titular character, the first seven episodes of "Jessica Jones" manage to defy them on every level, making this Marvel Cinematic Universe installment the best yet.
