Ever since her short-lived stint as a superhero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need. Especially if they're willing to cut her a check.
OK, so imagine there is a hormonal teenager who is having troubles with things around her and cannot get herself together and has a drinking problem. That's a common plot, but now imagine that that teenager is not a teenager but a grownup superhero. From the beginning of the show till the end of first season, Jessica Jones cannot get her act together, she cries about the same stuff, makes the same mistakes over and over again and you cannot tell the first episode apart from the last.
Jessica Jones is an endless continuation of a very weak plot and an even bad character building. For example, someone is good and then is unexplainably bad due to some drugs they took. There is no remorse.
Acting has to be one of the lowest points of the show. Except for Trish everyone including some accomplished actors were awful.
Lastly, I don't like the show because it is too dark and needlessly morbid. I don't know it is cool to kill off people needlessly to make a show intense? Surely we can do with less killing albeit they are just extras but still.
