Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 2 | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS
Community Rating0 Votes0

After a very strong start, Netflix’s slate of Marvel super hero shows have been on pretty rough ground. A sentiment I think most people have with the exception of Season 1 of Jessica Jones. While I did appreciate everything it accomplished in shedding light on real life issues and just how refreshingly different it was from the other super hero properties out there, I couldn’t help but feel like it dragged on a bit. I was really hoping that Season 2 would up the ‘super’ a tad more and that we’d get to see a different side of Jessica than just cynical and depressed.

I don’t know her rogues gallery (comic book villains) but it must be laughably weak because there really wasn’t a true villain to this season other than her own past…

We did get both of those wishes…sort of. There was more of Jessica actually being super and showing some sort of power outside of an impressive ability to drink – but really, how many times can you watch her push someone down or rip off a door handle? I know it’s still just a TV budget but these ‘stunts’ get old real fast. We also do get to see more to Jessica than always dour, although she is still very much a broken person. I don’t know her rogues gallery (comic book villains) but it must be laughably weak because there really wasn’t a true villain to this season other than her own past (once again), both literally and figuratively. Not to mention that any suspense built up during the first few episodes quickly dissipates when the central figure to the season is unveiled in full not even half way through. A risky move and one that I don’t think paid off like they thought it would, it left the second half feeling especially anticlimactic.

The Gifted Season 1 Reaction
Season 1 of The Gifted was a seriously flawed first season that still showed a lot of flashes of promise, especially in the back third. If they can build off of those great moments, add more levity, and ease off the caricatures then it can truly grow into something special, a la Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Read full review

Marvel's Runaways Season 1 Reaction
Season 1 was all about foundation building and they did a fantastic job of that and giving me a real reason to care about the characters and the story unfolding. I would like to see a bit more action in the next season but Season 1's incredible balance, great character development, and compelling story make this one of TV's most promising super hero shows yet.Read full review

Mr. Robot Season 3 Reaction
This season felt a bit off pacing wise (and not just due it's disjointed nature) and I didn't find myself clamoring for the next episode like I was in the first season, but it progressively got stronger towards the end with some great scenes and their best season finale yet, leaving me re-energized and excited to see what will unfold in Season 4.Read full review

But again, Jessica Jones is vastly different than any other super hero property out there so if you go into it with that mindset then there a fairly interesting dramatic, pseudo-noir story being told here; along with answers to long running questions about her past and potential for future highly personal conflicts. It’s not Netflix’s best but it’s definitely no Iron Fist, and while there’s no replacing the purple man, it did make one of their most relatable heroes that much more likeable.

Have you seen Season 2 of Jessica Jones? What’d you think about it? How did it stack up to the first? Do you wish they had at least involved Luke in her story? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to leave your own ratings and reactions to the season.
