    :eek:

    Go. See. Season. 1. Now.

    Not an emo anti-hero. More like a super-bitch 'eff-the-world' 'I will screw your socks off' anti-hero.

    I won't spoil it but the bad guy in season one is one of my favorite Marvel villains bar none. My biggest complaint about Marvel on the big or small screen is how weak the villains have been.

    Keep watching. Why she has the problems starts to become more clear. They build on that theme this season.

    I am gathering its because Kilgrave controlled her mind and made her kill people...Luke Cage's wife for one...
    Chicks always have problems with dudes controlling them.

    I had a girlfriend once that tripped out on me one day and started yelling at me, she says, "men are evil!! You shoot that delicious man juice up inside us and it lets you control our minds...it aint fair!!"

    so, yeah...Jessica kinda reminds me of her, lol.

    What I love about the show is let’s give powers to the most f’d up non-evil person we can and see what she does with it. Love the concept.

    yeah the concept is good. Similar to the show "The Gifted"... where a bunch of mutant kids are trying to survive in a post xmen world... lots of them have issues or dont know how to control their powers...stuff like that... but most of them just want to be like Luke Cage and disappear into society and try for a normal life...
    I find that both funny and ironic.... how many people out their right now think they would love to be a mutant so they aint stuck in normal?

    The show is a magnificent piece on the effects of gaslighting.

    Wow. I watched the first couple episodes. This was my intro to the R-rated Marvel Universe. Pretty awesome. I have some catching up to do.
