Ok, I knew it.
Killgrave wasn’t going to be in the season because Jessica killed him. I am not delusional.
I was expecting more flashbacks or other cinematic tricks to have more David Tennant on my screen. He is my favourite person in the entire world. I would marry him in a heart beat (if he weren’t already married to another amazing human being, ironically also named Georgia).
I loved season 1. A powerful, strong, damaged and messed up female superhero. It’s exactly what we needed. I am not a fan of superheros or the fantasy genre but this was really really good.
She decided to stop being a super hero and she is trying to survive as a private investigator.
Season one is mainly focused on her struggle to face super villain Killgrave and ultimately confront him.
But in this second one, Killgrave is dead and Jessica has to deal with the aftermath of the events.
On top of that, she is trying to figure out who gave her the superpower abilities and to remember what they did to her.
I’ve watched four episodes so far and to be fair, I’m not that into it. I got distracted very easily and I didn’t pay that much attention to the storyline. It was quite slow and the deeper dive into Jessica’s past was a bit boring for me. I felt like there was something missing.
She is still a badass, though. Jessica’s best friend Trish and neighbour-turned-employee Malcolm are still trying to help her and to basically save her from herself.
Aside from this, Jessica starts having visions and a client turns out to be a great lead on her case.
I love the noir, dark and mysterious atmosphere and most of all, I love that she does not wear some sort of cape, mask or fucking costume.
I’m so tired of spandex costumes.
I’ll probably keep watching because I know there is a David Tennant cameo somewhere along the season and I don’t want to miss it.
During a dull moment in an episode, I almost yelled “Find me some Killgrave! NOW!”.
Last but not least, I want to mention the fact that every episode was directed by a woman. Women is the cinema / TV industries have had it tough for a long time, and not it feels like change is in the air.
More women are being recognised and appreciated for their work, equal to men.
Female superhero protagonist show with all female directors. YES!!!
Have you seen Jessica Jones? What do you think about this new season?
P.S. Music by Sean Callery. He wrote the Homeland and Jessica Jones’ opening credits and they are spectacular. The score is perfection.
