Jessica Jones

I just wrapped up Jessica Jones on Netflix, and I liked it.  I never really followed many street level heroes as a kid, mainly sticking to Fantastic Four and Avengers.  So it’s been kind of a fun discovery of heroes I knew nothing about.  Jessica Jones is a fascinating character.  She’s a hard drinking, grouchy impatient PI who also has a very big heart under that gruff facade.

The show is not for the young ones, as it pulls no punches in showing just how devastating super powers can be.  Jessica can lift a truck, but uses her wits and intellect as the first line of problem solving. I love the new spin on the classic detective noir style.  The show has some pretty dark moments, but it’s able to blend in some fun to help offset the carnage.  I am looking forward to where Netflix is heading, with all these characters setting up The Defenders team.  I wonder how Dr. Strange will fit in?  Time will tell, and I’ll be watching.
