TV Review: Jessica Jones, 1.01, “AKA Ladies Night”


“Marvel’s television brand has come a long way since the 2013 premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.That show was the company’s coltish first step into the widening TV world—an awkward, gangly attempt at bringing their operatic, costumed rumpuses onto a smaller screen with a larger creative space. Over time, the series has shaped itself into a spy thriller increasingly peppered with superheroic pugilism; in the course of that slow-rolling evolution, Marvel has aired the uniformly great Agent Carter and the action extravaganza Daredevil, both of which proved more successful out the gate.
