This is good news.

Since Daredevil had been renewed before the first weekend was over, I was getting a bit worried.

Netflix and Marvel now have a lot of things in the pipeline: Daredevil 2, Power Man 1, Iron Fist 1, Jessica JOnes 2, and Defenders 1. Daredevil 2 is in the can and has a release date, pretty sure Power Man has filmed (or is filming) from the way things sound.

I wonder if Jones 2 will hit before Iron First and Defenders? I don't think they've got the team for Iron Fist (DIrector/Actor/Writer/Script) yet, so it might be easier to crank out Jones 2.

And there is talk of Punisher spinning off from Daredevil to add to that. And if Daredevil 2 is received like DD 1, I suspect it'll get hit for a season 3 pretty quickly too...

It sounds like Netflix and Marvel are pretty happy to work with each other -- and I would too if the product so far was DD1 and JJ 1, both are pretty high quality product. It sounds like PM 1 is going to be pretty good too, and I liked the use of the Character (writing/acting) in JJ1.

Honestly not sure how i feel about this.

As someone who was left a little underWelmed by the Netflix series so far(Jone in particular felt like a movie that was a little to long).Even if i am binge watching something i like a little more variety.

I also don't like how all of these are basically gritty Crime dramas with tights-or no tights. I get that netflix knows what people watch and caterns to it...but ehhh. As someone who likes there superhero shows a little light and more cheerful, to have that only be the thing on the table isn't great. would love a Ms. Marvel Show or a Squirrel girl show, or for that mater Hercules or a Pizza Dog Show.

So i kinda wish they well did something else-but well Jones in the end is intriguing and it maybe intrested to see what they do after they do the defining character arc of hers.

With no costume, set in the "real world" and limited special effects shows like Jessica Jones are cheap to produce and that is the bottom line.
Add in a good segment of the population that likes "grim and gritty" and there you have it.
I like STORY driven shows but I also like SUPRHEROIC action in my comic book shows.
If we must debate Supergirl vs Jessica Jones Supergirl is the show I'd rather watch.

it's going to be tough as i felt the first series was a self contained series, not really developing the peoples for a multi season run.

Here's hoping they do it right. I'm really enjoying season 1. Not a binge watcher, so I'm taking my time. But enjoying every episode, often watching them twice before moving on so as to not miss anything.

Jessica is astoundingly similar in abilities and looks to the Arion Betans I've long written about. It's nice to see another writer's perspective on someone with superpowers that are only a dozen or so times that of human. Kryptonians and Primes and others of their ilk are fun to let loose with, but Jessica is a bit more believable.

I enjoyed the dialog in Episode 3 where Luke asks if she can stop a car. "A slow one," she claims. That and the superpowered sex, breaking his bed. The perfect companion for a superwoman -- an unbreakable and super-strong man, but not nearly as strong as she is.

Not to mention the twisted plot lines. And Kilgrave might be the scariest antagonist I've seen, given the way he can put anyone under his power. The way he made Jessica kill Luke's wife was horrifying. No wonder she's so scarred.

I think Jones is actually a Horror story instead of a crime drama (though it has elements of that as she figures things out). It's creepy and the villain is almost unstoppable -- and he basically is if you hamstring yourself to not want to kill him instantly. A few good snipers and some patience and you'd eventually catch him in the open and kill him. But Jones doesn't want to do that, so he's unstoppable. IF you get close enough to engage, it's too late. (interesting that no one took any steps to fight this though.)

There is this existential dread that seems to build as more people experience Kilgrave's power. The shattered people who have come across him remind me of people writing journals in H.P. Lovecraft stories.

Or the deadpan reply to Jones from Hope when she hears jones is going after Killgrave. "Well you should just kill yourself." i.e. There's no hope, there's no fighting him, it'd be better to just kill yourself now. Less suffering.

And I think this is why it seemed the show repeated itself a bit, I think it was letting this overall dread build.

I certainly haven't been nearly as creepy-the-fuck-out by a bad guy as I was with Tennent's Kilgrave. I fully understand why someone would get irrational and attempt to flee the city hearing he was back.

This may be one of the reasons it appeals to me. I discovered HP Lovecraft's books when I was living high on this volcanic peak in the middle of the Atlantic (Azorean island of Terceria), helping maintain a big radio site for the USAF. The Azores in the winter, especially way up on the mountain, is a very Lovecraftian place, what with weird things going on and the general dark, windy, isolation and frequent rain. Sitting on top of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, some of the tallest mountains on earth if measured from the sea bottom, we frequently saw lights flying around that could not have been aircraft based on their movements. This was back in the early 70's. It got where we didn't even report the UFOs any more. There was also no decent way to get down to the base below at night in the rain given the roads were narrow and bad.

Anyway, several of us started reading Lovecraft on dark, spooky nights up there, what with the wailing of wind and the low hum of massive electrical equipment and beating of rain on the walls, and his magical way of creating a sense of dread infected the place. A couple of guys freaked out and couldn't read the books anymore, even begged the rest of us to stop, But the remaining handful of us got into the dread thing in ways that only hard-core Lovecraft readers can. We hung a big sign renaming our site Mountain of Madness which didn't help matters.

Anyway, I also get a whiff of that dread with Jessica Jones. But I admit, its a peculiar kind of acquired taste.

This is great news. Jessica offers a great deal of potential. A private eye specialising in mutant cases has plenty of fertile soil for all kinds of adventures. And while I think Supergirl is an extremely well done series, they don't have the freedom on CBS to do the sort of things they can on Netflix. It'll be a long wait, but I look forward to seeing what they do with this great series.

Awesome news. Although the episodes seemed to drag there toward the middle, I loved Season 1. I just wonder what villain they are going to get for the next season that could possibly top Killgrave?

You make some good points --but there is a reason Horror as a genre never picked up on TV in searlized form. You can build tension and setup characters but after awhile setup becomes a little route. As i said before-i think Jones would have made a great movie, or even like a TV movie-but it was just streached out.


If the show next season does turn into something more serialized, or does another big villian...i donno. I do wish they did more here. But will see. Jones even with the open ending felt kinda complete tale.

(and yeah Tennant maybe the best villian the MCU has ever done-hope they don't just find someway to bring him back)
