Jessica Jones 2 Ep 1-4
« on: March 08, 2018, 04:21:50 AM »
I just saw the first episode.  It's off to a decent start.  I think IGH will provide more story opportunities than Killgrave.  Chang is a good foil, although I'm not convinced the PI business is booming enough to have competition.  Hogarth is back to being horrible, which I'm not a fan of.  I prefer her Iron Fist/Defenders portrayal where she's shrewd, but has a heart.  Did not expect to see the MCU Whizzer.

Yeah, the dude ran like a fat guy, so when eh sped up, it looked terrible.  They should've just left him at disappearing/reappearing like they did in the office.  As expected, the show is light on fight scenes and those that do appear are short and not very interesting.  Say what you will about Iron Fist, but I always thought JJ had the least exciting fights.

Episode 2: I was surprised to see Nuke taken out so quickly but I guess there isn't much more he could do in the series.  That coked-up dance from Hogarth was cringy as hell.

On episode 3.  I read reviews saying this season was slower paced but I'm liking the supporting characters more this time around and there's enough plot to move things along.  There seems to be more meat with the IGH plot than the Killgrave one, even if the main villain isn't as interesting.  Trish is on her way to going full Hellcat as you know she's gonna use Simpson's drugs now.  I still wish they would have better fight scenes though.  Also, Jessica threw that body pretty damn far.  Considering it was probably weighed down with rocks and stuff, that's not bad.

Four episodes down.  How does Jessica not realize Trish is on some shit?

I really have no interest in watching this. I don’t think I can take another season of Jessica’s one-dimensional personality.

Enjoying the first 4 episodes so far but too many sub plots distracting from the main storyline.

I was actually commenting to my wife that the myriad of subplots are more interesting than the main plot this season. The IGH/Superstrong Lady is not gripping me at all, but all the stuff with the super and his kid, Malcolm, Cheng, and especially Jeri have me wanting more. Why has Jessica become the least relevant aspect of her own show?

Mostly because she's not very likeable and doesn't make any efforts to be a better person.

Why bother be likeable or a better person?

She grew up with no reason to trust or depend on anyone.

Nor did she want the powers or the limelight to begin with.

The thing I find funny is that we have a IGA supermarket chain here so whenever they mention IGH, I keep thinking, "Jeez they really want their check-out chick back sooo bad!"

You realize IGA is all over the place, right?  It started in the US.

Not I didn't realise they were American based.
The stores here aren't wide spread, tend to be smaller & located in suburbs without major shopping malls.
