Completely agree with Mitch. If they're afraid of saying certain things that would harm the tone (Shit, Sex, Drugs, Rape, CHITAURI), that's fine. But it's starting to get noticeable how they go out of their way to keep things vague. It's cool that Trish flat out says aliens did attack but even that makes the other vague references stand out. And yeah, it's even more jarring since these people are literally a few blocks away from each other.

Also, I am on the opposite boat of liking that it didn't reference the "larger MCU" more. Makes it feel more "special".

I didn't feel like it was awkward at all. Not like Supergirl is.

This was also supposed to take place in Hell's Kitchen, right? I remember at one point, JJ said she needed a lawyer and, totally forgetting about Jeri, I thought she was going to mention DD.

3 episodes in. Don't care about any of the characters, where-as Daredevil gripped me right away. Oh well, will see how it goes.

Just finished it. I think I maybe preferred it to Daredevil, but I could be getting swayed by being a fan of Tennant.

Only downside was the sibling neighbours. Horrible characters.

crossover was a nice touch but the finale? felt kinda shoehorned in. could've been more incremental and organic over the course of the season instead of BAM HEY REMEMBER THE NIGHT NURSE

still A+ maiden season though. nuke should be fun next round or whenever. tennant was incredible as per usual. keen for luke cage. weird that iron fist series might not go ahead in its original form since daredevil actually laid a fair bit of groundwork for it (which i guess added to my bemusement at jj's lack of world-acknowledgment)

finished a few nights ago, thought it dropped of quality wise over the last few episodes but still enjoyed it as a whole. Claire stuff in the last episode was a bit daft, "yes strange bitch lady I've known for 1 minute with unconscious strange man, I will leave my shift at work as well as probably break however many rules or protocols and come and stay with you for days "

Yeah, I agree a bit about Night Nurse showing up in the last episode. Felt like "Oh, so NOW you're gonna do a bit of crossover? You had all season!"

I think Daredevil overall was much better. Also I think Wilson Fisk was better developed character then Kilgrave. I sympathized a lot more with Fisk then I ever could with Kilgrave... Now with that said...

Kilgrave is a terrifiying villian. What a fuckin menance. He might be Marvel's best villian so far. A lot of that stuff was disturbing.

The episode where Jessica takes Kilgrave to do good is just fucking brilliant.

I started watching a few days ago, but was drunk and had to rewatch so I'm 8 episodes in. I was never into the character of Jessica Jones in the comics, didn't care about her at all, but this show is amazing. They keep up the good work they could make a TV show about Phone Ranger and make it cool.

Btw, anyone else thinks Det. Clemons totally looks like Morgan Freeman?

Also, I knew I recognized the character from somewhere and sure enough, he was in Punisher comics. He beat his wife and he died trying to help his partner who owed the mob.

I guess it sort of makes sense since she's not trained to be a fighter, just has super strength, just doesn't make for extremely interesting fight scenes.
Yeah, I got one episode left to watch. The last had the fight scene between Jones and Cage. It was fucking terrible.

OK, finished it. Good show overall.

Bruno Mars was so much better when he was on drugs, when he cleaned up he became an irritating pussy. Fuck that guy. Or give him drugs again, dunno.

I think he was a pretty good character to really dig into the 'real' effects of being a normal person caught up in the MCU's crazy world. I imagine people Loki put under control could use that support group. Selvic was near crazy after Avengers.

I'm very late to the party. Just started JJ, and only 3 eps in, so I super danced around all those spoiler tags... even the incorrectly made one by Kt.

But I just wanted to reply to this particular thing. I don't feel the same way. I like that the world is shared, but don't need to see a crossover every other show (like Flash) to enjoy their own stories. Even that is a weird meter, because the DC 'verse is segregated between TV and cinematic... Batman exists, but it is technically neither Bale nor Affleck, he just "is Batman" somewhere in the ether.

I don't pick up an X-Men comic and expect to see a team-up every time, but am aware they share continuity with Spider-Man, Shi'ar, or Alpha Flight. Also, there is no hard measure of time between this and DD save for this being post-Avengers, so who's to say the lack of Daredevil crossover isn't partially due to this not running exactly parallel? Kinda like the first Resident Evil movie, where it technically began before the first game, but Alice ends up waking up in the hospital about the time period during the second game, but had no immediate bearing or interactions with either. It was a beautiful standalone story that still took place in universe. Shoehorning her into the events directly with major game characters, which is what the sequels did, is where they started getting dumb really fast.

It is nice to have the *possibility* of interaction, but it doesn't need to be everywhere all the time. Especially since every new show with more characters farther down the MCU hierarchy are looked at as experimental, and not knowing if the show will take off or fail.

I'm eight episodes in. Fantastic show! I enjoyed Daredevil more but that's mainly because I'm more familiar with the characters (and DD is one of my faves). I've never actually seen David Tenant in anything, but he has been brilliant as Kilgrave.

This was quite good, but like most have said I don't think it touches Daredevil. It will be interesting to see the formation of Heroes for Hire in Luke Cage.

I haven't thought of that. Luke's show is a good place for Iron Fist to debut.

Misty Knight confirmed, so I think it's all but certain. Iron Fist still up in the air though, which seems ridiculous to me.

Marvel hired Scott Buck as Iron Fist showrunner.

Scott Buck produced Six Feet Under and Dexter for a while.

Finished! Loved it! As I said before, Tenant was an absolute joy to watch, and was so hate-able. Loving the "Marvel Knights" series or whatever these street-vigilante-level heroes are being classed as. Can't wait for whatever's next, and I'd love to see some crossover stuff with the movies at some point. Perhaps Daredevil could have a cameo in Civil War?

Just finished. Fuck.

I know it is a long shot, and what I posted before about crossovers still holds true, but I really hope some circumstance has Rosario show up in a movie. Or at least an episode of Agents. Hell, even land her a job with Damage Control.

Less to do with Night Nurse, and more to do with me wanting more Rosario Dawson.

Also, the whole show has had a lingering distraction of me equating Krysten Ritter with Dr. Girlfriend that I couldn't unsee, so I had to look past. The strong facial features, the upturned nose, the perperual "pissed at The Monarch" look she had the whole time... she's a Doc Hammer overdub away.

Finally got around to watching this. Think I like it more than daredevil. Mainly because the cat and mouse game between jess and killgrave was a blast the whole way through whereas daredevil while also great, dragged at times.

And yeah, killgrave was awesome. Not much else that needs to be said there.

Had no idea Nuke was going to be in this. I didn't even know officer simpson was Nuke until he was in the hospital and he said "Gimme a red" and I marked out like crazy.

Pretty obvious at this point that Killgrave, Jess, and Luke were all given powers by IGH which is a cover for some evil organization, my guess being A.I.M.
