Re: Jessica Jones

I knew nothing about Jessica Jones either before I watched it and I thought it was fantastic.
There is something annoying about Krysten Ritter’s face but I was really impressed with her work here.

It’s been a few months since I watched it but I thought Ritter played the character as emotionally damaged and unable to trust people after what happened to her.
She was a mess before she met Kilgrave and he did her no favours in that department. Jones hides herself away from the world which might explain the limited locations as well as real world constraints however it’s no Arrow. Jones has been emotionally compromised and she’s confused as hell but is still trying to figure it out. I thought she was a character who wants to do good but is always fighting that impulse inside herself. It made her very believable and human. I didn’t think it looked cheap at all. Grimy and gritty yes but it suited the character and her story. It is a character show not an ensemble show so I thought it did a good job of showing a female and anti-hero perspective.

At least Jessica has special powers that explain why a 90-120lb woman can beat the tar out of a man or several men twice her size.

By the way if you’re not a fan of gratuitous sex scenes, please be warned there is a particularly bad one in Luke Cage.

I've just finished watching The OA .. I'm not sure I would recommend it.

I know, I’ve been reading the Nerve Centre and it’s comforting to know I’m not the only one. I regret not sticking with it though, I’ve missed out on so many thrills. Although 2000AD is all grown up now, no more reader submitted drawings and I note with sadness the demise of the free LRD.

Ah ok, I got something like that from the recent Grindstone Cowboys story but I thought that he was just another cadet called Rico. When he showed up to the Christmas dinner at Dredd’s niece’s house it certainly got me thinking ‘Who *is* this dude?’

So that’s Vienna explained -  has she had any effect on Dredd? Has having family / not being alone changed him at all?

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ve ordered Day of Chaos already but will look into the others.

Good Morning Everyone,

Just wanted to say hello to everyone.
I read 2000AD in my youth, quit for a (good) few years and now I'm back wondering 'What have I missed?'.

Why did I leave? I got distracted by life ..

Why am I back? I forgot how much I enjoyed reading comics ... how could I???

Catch you around.
