some TV show thoughts

This post is mostly for me to remember but also in case anyone else has thought of watching these or has watched and is curious about other people’s thoughts. I currently have a hulu trial subscription so I’m trying to watch a number of shows on there that aren’t elsewhere. Also, recently I was trying out new stuff on Netflix.

Here are some thoughts on some of the shows I’ve started watching or fully seen recently, in no particular order. btw, I’m pretty blunt in my hatred of one particular character in one of the shows I mention. As I say at the end of the post, if I don’t love something you love, my feelings on the matter shouldn’t affect your own. We all react to things in different ways for different reasons. Some things I adore are the same things other people hate or dismiss. It’s all about perspective and subjectivity, and that variation in feelings and thoughts is awesome imo because it makes the world a more diverse place 🙂 I just wanted to get my thoughts down on these after finishing them because I’ve found my memory sucks on this sort of stuff, and if I do write down my thoughts it helps me later if I pick the show back up or try to remember if I did or didn’t like something.

REVIEW – Jessica Jones

Sorry this is not writing related but I’ve wanted a place to put down my thoughts about stories/movies/etc I’ve watched when I want to review them, and this is the best place I have to do so.

Multiple people recommended the Netflix original series Jessica Jones to me. I finally started it on Sunday, and just finished it tonight. This is my initial review of it. Maybe my opinion will change later. By the way, I know that Jessica Jones is based on a comic series but I haven’t read that series, so literally the only information I have at all is based on the TV show.

I will keep all spoilers ONLY under a cut below, and also beneath a spoiler warning. No spoilers are ahead of that.

MY OVERALL RATING: 3 or 3.5 out of 5 stars. I wish I could up it to 4 but I can’t right now. It does some things very well but the things I wasn’t impressed with were too central to the series so it really knocked it down.

WHAT IT DOES WELL: 

  • represent PTSD and the repercussions of trauma

WHAT IT DOESN’T DO WELL:

  • make me care about the main characters as much as side characters
  • romance
  • chemistry
  • strong plot all the way through the end
  • closure

SPOILERS BELOW!!!!!!!! SPOILERS THROUGH THE END OF THE SEASON!!!!! DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU WANT MAJOR, HUGE SPOILERS FOR THE ENDING!!!!!!!!!!
