"Oh Deuce why am I even watching this? Why am I watching thiiiiiiiiiiis!!!" Cried she, in an anguished voices, while pausing the video of episode 9, at a terrible moment of suspense and terror.  :o :-[ :'(

Such a great show. Tells a lot, when a villain is the character you want to see on screen the most, yet you saw nothing of him for what? The 3 or 4 first episodes?

Yeah, the show focuses *heavily* on the aftermath of getting "Kilgraved" - how victims deal with PTSD, fear, and getting on with their lives. That's part of the reason Kilgrave feels like such a presence in those first few episodes, even without being in them. They focus on all the ways Jessica is still haunted and traumatized by what he did to her, and how he continues to victimize her even without being present. Very creepy and well done.

Woah, just finished the last episode... David Tennant really shot up in my opinion. I might even check him as the Dr. (I jumped on the Dr. who bandwaggon after his turn and jumped out when Matt was done).

This one scene where Killgrave is busy doing a display of his power but his eye shots out to the side to check Jessica's reaction, showing all the white, was chilling.
His delusions, his love for her is both pathological and sincere in the most criminal way, it's really brilliant.

That was a very fulfilling season and I don't think I wish to see a 2nd one.

Yes, you need to see him as The Doctor. He's my favorite. I've liked all The Doctors, but Mat Smith was all warrior and mean. Tennant could be really funny one minute, and then go all angry the next. It just depended on how much you pissed him off.

David Tennant is also excellent in Broadchurch -- two seasons now out on Netflix.

Tennant was fantastic, but really I think the strength of the show was fantastic writing.

You could feel how awful he was without even seeing him on screen, its some of the best writing of PTSD I've ever seen.  My only complaint was all the times she could have killed or maimed the bastard and didn't. I was banging my head against the TV. *seriously* How many more people are gonna get killed b/c of your dumbshit attempt to prove a point?

Yea but
Spoiler for Hiden:
how satisfying was it when she told him to 'smile' (fist pump) and cracked his grinning neck with one hand

Yeah.  Me too.  But then, I *think* that's going to be a huge theme in the whole pack of Defenders series.  In Daredevil, Murdock got to the point of deciding to kill Kingpin... and failed.  And then he ended up getting him arrested instead.  The kill or don't kill dilemma is huge for both of them.  We'll see how it is for Luke Cage.  :)

I've given up after 3 episodes, I just don't care for Jessica, Killgrave is great through
I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. Sure, I loved the plot, but really? Season 2? Why can't we just wait for the Defenders and watch all this come together. Daredevil S2 I get. It feels like there's something Merdock needs to do before he can become a defender. With the way they ended Jesica Jones, she's primed and ready. She's made all the right connections, she's very well-known now...
We'll see where this goes.

Yes! More Jessica is great, more is what is needed. :D

I imagine they'll investigate the Douche Cop's company he was with that gave him the pills, it's what they set up anyway.

See, typically, unless I hear the season is fabulous, this typically doesn't interest me.

I don't get why America is so damn obsessed with heroes! Defenders, Avengers, Justice league, ect!

What was great about Jessica Jones was the feel of normality that coursed through it just enough that you could sense the parallel with real life at all times.
Besides, the season was mostly as good as its bad guy. Jessica is typically not the kind of character I have a fondness for, but her against killgrave, now that worked.

Jones against other baddies will prove more difficult to catch my interest.

To me, that looked like the plot for the Defenders, combined with whatever part Stick plays in all this. Could be wrong though.

I agree.  Killgrave and JJ were a phenomenal match. I'm reserved about my enthusiasm for the next round
