Warning - Open spoilers for Seasons 1 and 2 of Jessica Jones (and possibly other Netflix Marvel show seasons previously released)
Strange–I couldn’t seem to find a thread already … anyway … here goes!
Season 1 of Jessica Jones is one of my absolute favorite shows, certainly my favorite superhero show so far. So devastating, so complete.
After the flops that were Iron Fist, Defenders, and Punisher, I had somewhat lowered expectations for Season 2 of Jessica Jones. I just finished it, and my initial impression is – not as good as Season 1, but not bad.
It did seem like a much more claustrophobic atmosphere for some reason … every character seemed very isolated. Almost like you could feel they were all on an empty set.
I’m not sure how I feel about the appearance of Jessica’s mother. It somewhat dilutes the impact of her back story. And I’m not sure I entirely believed the Stockholm romance of Mom and Evil Scientist.
One huge negative for me was the actor playing Patsy/Tricia Walker. She just seemed terrible, especially when she got all shouty. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong until it occurred to me–is it “trying really hard to maintain my fake American accent” syndrome?
I looked her up, and yes–Australian! Ugh. Just did not work for me.
Oh, and I missed not having Luke Cage and Nurse Claire in the story.
Any other thoughts, comments, observations?
