Purple is the colour. I used to like purple. Still do. I think it’s a great colour. This TV show doesn’t have any humour in it whatsoever. It is serious, grim and dark full of drinking and swearing (actually not swearing but let me tell you, the comics have the f word in almost every bubble).

Jessica is an ex superhero troubled by her past demons. The demons being a mind controller called Kilgrave who used Jessica’s body for every dirty desire of his. Basically this show is Jessica vs Kilgrave.

It is shown on Netflix from Marvel. Same as Daredevil. But there is a huge difference. I liked this show (but not as much as Daredevil. I loved Daredevil). I’ll be honest, the only good thing in this show is David Tennant who plays Kilgrave. He does such a good job. You know in the show whenever someone tells him that he was violent or he murdered people or he raped them. He always declines and it makes you as viewer think well maybe he is telling the truth. And there’s one instance where he says he loves Jessica from his heart and you start to believe him knowing that he is a psychopath. That’s how good and manipulative David Tennant plays Kilgrave.

The girl who plays Jessica does a good job too of being a grumpy girl. She never smiles through the series. She is extremely rude and very like the Jessica from comics. Except for the swearing and smoking. Those two are a must for Jessica. I wish they would include her saying fucking in every sentence and smoking ciggys all around. That would be amazing.

The sex scenes were bad except one. The fight scenes were rubbish all the way through. There wasn’t any thrill involved. They was mystery though which kept you going watching all the episodes. Daredevil was like a mini cinematic movie in every episode. This show just feels so bland compare to that.

But the last scene was superb. I really loved how the ending all turned out to be. Anyway, I don’t think this is worth a re watch but still good.

976) Alias #8 (2002)

Jessica finds Rick and they have a long talk. Rick says that he can’t go to the Avengers for help because he pissed Captain America for writing about him in his book called sidekick. So instead they go to The Baxter Building and have a hard time getting to meet Dr. Richards when in frustration Jessica starts to call Captain America and Rick flees from the scene. He just disappears.

975) Alias #7 (2002)

Jess tracks his down singing in a show and when she goes to meet him backstage he attacks her saying who sent her here. The story is a bit dull but the writing is pretty good.

Jess has a talk with Carol to discuss shit and something over lunch. A woman comes to her saying her name is Jones also and her husband is missing whose name is Rick Jones.

971) Alias #5 (2002)

Jess finds out about the main guy who hired her and she reaches him and he says to sell the tape and let everyone know who Cap America is. She refuses and he threatens her then walks off. Jess gets a call from SHIELD that they had a bug on her and got everything they wanted. Now she just run back. Steve Rogers comes to her flat and Jess gives him back the tape.

I think I am ready for episode 1 of Jessica Jones. I got a feel how her character is.

970) Alias #4 (2002)

Visiting the election campaign stores, Jessica finds the lady who hired her. She threatens her and took an important number from her. It was some lawyer’s number. She is getting close. Then Matt Murdock calls and tells her that she is not an official suspect anymore and the bruises from the dead body suggest she had been strangled by a man with large hands. Just then Jessica gets attacked by a guy with large hands in her car.

969) Alias #3 (2002)

The detective investigates Jess about the murder last night and the investigation goes for long. Matt Murdoch saves her and gives her his attorney number. Jess goes to Carol to find out about the number the woman gave her and it turns out to be a public number for the election.

968) Alias #2 (2001)

The lady that hired Jess got murdered and she was at the crime scene. The police got her and wants to investigate her. Well, she knows a big secret. The secret identity of Captain America.

967) Alias #1 (2001)

Starting a new series also written by Bendis. Just preparing myself for the Jessica Jones series which is released today on the 20th of November 2015. I know the series is going to be awesome and I might just watch an episode a week with reading two issues or more a week too.

In this issue, Jessica is hired by a lady who wants to find her missing sister. Jessica finds her and sees the lady’s sister is living with a man who just came out of the house at 2 am and donned the Captain America suit. And she has it on the tape.

This issue or series rather has a parental warning. It started with the work fuck and there are disturbing themes going on here. Her brief interaction with Luke in this issue sent chills in my body. It is pretty psychological.
