Marvel TV Series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones etc) NO SPOILERS

What do people think?

Daredevil is one of the best TV shows I have ever seen.

2 episodes into Jessica Jones. Loving it so far.

Daredevil was great from start to finish and I've never read the comics and thought that movie with Colin Farrell and whatshisface from the Green Mile was crap. Netflix really is a force for good in the original content they are providing.

I adored Daredevil, though I thought it lost its way for a couple of episodes in the middle.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about Jessica Jones so will watch that soon.

I think both are great but when it comes to which one is better Jessica Jones for me just shades it, mainly due to David Tennant who is phenomenal as Kilgrave. The best Marval baddie so far imo.

Really enjoyed Daredevil, but Jessica Jones whilst having a good start, didn't even come close for me.

The whole story is flawed and silly. Her powers are inconsistent and her reasons for not doing the obvious when presented with the opportunity numerous times just doesn't make sense. There is some dodgy acting from a few characters too (Simpson won the can't act award) and I didn't rate Tennant's performance either but I know many people loved him as Kilgrave...

For me:
Daredevil was an 8/10
Jessica Jones was a 5/10

JJ is an excellent study in trauma and abuse and how it's victims are affected. She is a classic PTSD sufferer, which is one explanation for why she often acts in an illogical manner. Kilgrave is a very good character too. At points you find yourself feeling sorry for him, and then fell repulsed as he really is a sociopath.

I liked both series, but for me JJ just shades it because of the characters and excellent writing. DD series two should be interesting, can't wait to see their take on Frank castle.

Yeah Daredevil was brilliant. Knew nothing about it going in but liked how it was much darker than other Marvel based shows/films.

JJ is on the list.

Season 2 Daredevil for The Punisher alone will be worth it.

Preferred Daredevil, but thought JJ's representation of Kilgrave and Luke Cage were very good.

I loved Daredeveil. Thought the fight scenes were well shot, the story was intriguing and the villian dark and well acted.

So far im also really enjoying JJ. Only 4 episodes in at the moment.

The last 3 episodes of DD are excellent.

I was hooked the whole way through.

JJ on Ep 6 now. David Tennant is just excellent at being the villain.

What Karl says.

The last 3 episodes were fantastic. I just thought it meandered a tad and spent a bit long to get where it did.

Either the 2nd or 3rd episode that has one of the best fight sequences I’ve ever seen.
