We have a Jessica.

I like her in most things.  I will be curious to see what she does to buff up for the part.

Putting aside BiA23, as that was meant to be over the top, I've liked her in a bunch of roles.  I do not think she - physically - screams Jessica Jones to me, but I'm curious where they'll take it.  I'm more than willing to give Marvel and her talents a shot.

Only really ever seen her in Breaking Bad where I think she did a perfectly ok job. I don't really care much about Jessica Jones as a character though, although that's partly due to how she got shoehorned into continuity.

Literally the only things I know about Jessica Jones are that she is married to Luke Cage and they have a kid named Danielle. Danielle's babysitter is often Squirrel Girl.

If it helps, the Kyrsten Ritter could possibly pull off the Baroness look (she's at least got the hair for it).

On this we agree. I don't have a problem with her as an actress having only seen her in Breaking Bad, but I thought Jessica Jones was a model? Alexandria Daddario would have been more physically appropriate (and hotter).

Well, Krysten Ritter was literally a model before she was an actress.  So there's that.

There are models and then there are Models.  If any of us knew Rytter in real life, she'd probably be the prettiest person we know.  

Regardless, I do not think she needs to be a model to do the core of the story justice.  I don't see their path to telling the story with this casting, but I trust that they have a vision.  IMHO, Marvel still has not tripped, so I give them the benefit of the doubt until they put something on screen that I do not enjoy.

Oh, I'm glad that girl from Bitch got a new show.  Yeah, she's really cute and has a good 'screen presence' to me.  Having known very little about JJ, I have no problem with this casting.

David Tennant is playing the Purple Man. Also they've given a bit more of a description of the show's premise than I think I've seen so far:

Quote
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter, ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23) is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. An enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, Kilgrave’s reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.

So it sounds like they're pulling very directly from Alias.

I wonder if they'll use her origin story (without the Peter Parker crush / Johnny Storm crush / does this girl ever have a hero fetish) or tweak it to align with Murdock's origin (which is similar)?  They're basically similar stories.... and I am wondering about the other Daredevil crossovers.  There is a minor villain in the Daredevil show that plays a part in her longer origin story in the comics...

I heard a pretty good argument that this will hit Netflix on either 10/30 or 11/6.  It is based upon an assumption that certain production events (including the casting of various parallel roles on AKA JJ and Daredevil (such as Kingpin and Purple Man / Kilgrave)) are taking place an equal number of weeks prior to release.  However, I think they might push it up by a month or so as the second series might involve less setup than the first (as they're filmed with many of the same production elements and in the same area).

I can only hope the traditional networks are wailing and gnashing teeth all around. They brought this on themselves by deciding they weren't getting paid enough for their shit content. Now they're getting paid even less as ad dollars and eyeballs go elsewhere.

So far, so good.  However, that is a pretty dire tone to try to maintain for an entire season.  I'm hoping there is more light heartedness mixed in there, too.

That girl tho. Not my cup of tea at all. She looks like an emaciated woo girl.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

I've seen the first episode. I'm really enjoying it so far.Still not sold on this being the best role for Rytter, but she is doing a good job with it. I can just imagine her doing more with a role that was less muscle and more shadow.

Enjoyed the first episode.  Pretty, pretty, pretty dark.  Can't wait to see which couch whale among us finishes it first.  I'm getting a new recliner tomorrow though so it might be me!

Halfway through the season.  Pretty good so far, but not as good as Daredevil.  I still do not buy the actress as a superhero, though.

After watching the first one, really liked that they didn't feel the need to do an origin story, and that main character has an actual past we don't know about. I don't think Marvel have been confident enough to do that before. This felt even more relaxed about being a grown up drama than Daredevil.

Rytter is ok, but the supporting cast is much stronger.
