There’s a lot of things to love about Netflix’s recent original Jessica Jones, directed by Melissa Rosenberg. Unlike many superhero movies, the characters highlight the essence of the show.

Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is the perfect anti-hero. Far from the typical untouchable heroes of past Marvel’s endeavors, she is struggling, bitter, and her character is deep. The supporting characters add to the show with both their flaws and humanity. David Tennant is captivating as a twisted villain, and the realities of his effects on his victims make him all the more terrifying. The show is darker than most that Marvel has done before, so the viewer should be prepared for mature themes; although the show doesn’t revel in violence, nudity, or strong language, its content is about equivalent to an R rated film. It may be triggering to viewers who have experienced sexual violence. Jessica Jones is gritty, slow burning but often edge-of-your-seat captivating, and the perfect show to stay up late watching this winter break.
