I'm two episodes in but if I'm honest, its quite hard to like...

 

the shocker is however its not coz it's bad (it was the same with ant man)

 

ergo we have hit superhero saturation point. they are becoming tired. i wonder what will be fashionable next?

Haven't watched it yet, but I probably will because that Ritter lady is funny and also weirdly pretty and I'm just that easy I guess when it comes to television. Or life.

I'm on episode 3 and am now into it. I'm buying into the whole defender mythology too.... 

 

obviously this is a well made piece of entertainment, i meant that the thought of it going in to the first episode didn't have me psyched the same way daredevil did

I think I'm officially done with the superheroes. I think Guardians of the Galaxy was the last marvel thing I watched, and it was a good bit of fun, but... I'm just not into it anymore.

I'm not over super heroes, but then I am a huge nerd so it's to be expected.

 

I do like that Jessica Jones and Daredevil before have been trying to be more than just super hero shows - they're trying to be good drama with interesting stories and characters. The comic book element is just one part of it, not the whole focus. 

 

Daredevil was a story about two people who love their city and how they want to change it to be better, but both coming from completely different angles. On one hand you had Matt Murdock trying to let the good of the city show by beating down the bad guys, and on the other you have Wilson Fisk trying to improve the city through money and power, even if that means mobs and gangs being used to his ends. They both want the best for the city and are willing to go to extreme lengths to make it happen, but their methods are very different. It meant you got complete characters, changing relationship dynamics and a bad guy that wasn't just a cartoon villain.

 

Jessica Jones is a rape allegory with a victim facing her past and her abuser and finding strength in who she is in order to get over the trauma she has gone through. 

 

These aren't just the typical Marvel super hero origin story movies where you have fun but two dimensional characters throwing witty one liners as they learn about how to control their powers followed by a final act with CGI fighting and explosions. These are complete, dramatic stories with more complex and realistic characters that can make mistakes and face the consequences. I love the Marvel movies, but these two series almost feel like they're being made by a different company.

id say that it's unfathomable that superhero drivel is all over television, but then i remember how puerile half of society is and i stop wondering.

tbh I'm with sixy on this, admittedly the netflix stuff is, at least so far attempted, quality drama - but the rest of it is bullshit, and i say that as an avid 'the flash' viewer, that if it goes away tomorrow will as easily be filled with other bullshit like a formulaic comedy or a crap quiz show. it is on the whole, bollocks

Crumbsy wasn't impressed with this shit, y'know. Just thought I'd say. That name carries weight in the derf heart.

Tennant was creepy as anything. I knew he would make an excellent bad guy.
