Starting real quick by mentioning Jessica Jones. Finished binge-watching it and I can say with full certainty that it was amazing. Daredevil was fantastic, but the reason why I liked Jessica Jones a bit more was because of how personal it was. Daredevil’s main theme was morality, and Jessica Jones’ theme was control. Both had one theme in common though: sometimes you can’t always have an Iron Man or a Captain America to deal with the “small-time” threats, but those threats are insanely vicious because of how it affects the average person/superhuman.
When I was watching Jessica Jones I thought, “I don’t think Jessica Jones herself is likeable”. But then I quickly realized while continuing watching the show that this was intentional. Jessica Jones herself is not a likeable person after Kilgrave got a hold of her, and she built an almost impenetrable wall around her to protect herself and others from experiencing the same thing again. Imagine having no control of your actions and being the puppet of a terrifying villain. Which brings me to Kilgrave. David Tennant absolutely floored me with his portrayal. Before this show, I thought Vincent D’nofrio’s Kingpin was the baddest baddie in the MCU. What made Tenant so horrifying as Kilgrave was not so much his powers/abilities (since they could be used for good) but rather the twisted mind he had. He genuinely couldn’t tell the difference between right and wrong because to him, everything was right or could be corrected to his idea of what was right. Overall, awesome awesome show.
