It’s been seven months since Daredevil landed on Netflix, ample time for viewers to experience what a Marvel show is like on the streaming service. But before we re-visit the world of Matt Murdock in 2016, we’re getting yet another show in the depths of Hell’s Kitchen, and it promises to be even darker (literally and figuratively) than the violence we saw in season 1 of Daredevil.
Jessica Jones will be available on Netflix once the clock strikes 12:01 a.m. Pacific tonight, bringing viewers into the twisted world of a reformed superhero. From what we’ve seen so far, Jessica Jones (Kristyn Ritter) isn’t someone you want to mess with. But the show won’t be just about her powers or her current gig as a private investigator. The show will give us backstory about her previous life, and how she handles PTSD in the belly of Hell’s Kitchen.
The focal point of the show will center on her relationship with Kilgrave (David Tennant), who is also known as the Purple Man. By all accounts, his and Ritter’s performances are phenomenal, and really add emotional weight to the story. We loved Daredevil, but for all of its action, it still lacked the kind of empathetic connection you hope to have with such tormented characters.
So, once you’re done playing Fallout 4, and after you’ve watched Master of None (also on Netflix), do yourself a favor and check out Jessica Jones, which will be available on the platform in its entirety beginning Nov. 20. We haven’t seen it yet, but from what we’ve been reading, it’s a terrific show. Of course, we’ll have our own review, so be sure to check back for that soon.
