Can someone that's seen it review it for us and give recommendations.
not for you dude move on
I just finished watching it today.
Very well written, acted show. Very dark stuff, but very well done. Great characters, situations, pace etc. If you saw Daredevil on Netflix, you know what they can do -- and I think this actually came out a little better.
i started binge watching yesterday. The actor who plays the lead is a very effeminate boy. The lead's backstory moves very slow. I think they assume you read the Alias comics. If not, the black on white boy sex does not take the place of not knowing what is going on. I thought David Tennant is supposed to be purple.
Just finished it. Def worth watching even if the pace doesn't pick up till midway thru the series. the ending is kinda lame and telegraphed, but its still better than 99% of the shit on broadcast cable today. if Netflix decided to charge a premium for original programming like this, it would be worth it.
I watched 4 or 5 episodes already. I like it alot. Still trying to figure out all the backstories. A slow build. My husband has read the comics so he already knows what's going on. I would recommend.
I'm 4 episodes in. So far it's been good but not great. I think it's about on par with Daredevil. It doesn't have a character as poorly acted and poorly written as Foggy so that's a plus. The actor cast as the bad guy is the best part so far. Dude is very creepy and very cool.
From what I've seen I would recommend it. Even if you don't care for comic book stuff, there's a good enough story to get anyone (i.e. My wife) interested.
the way the backstories are presented was the part i had issues with but about midway through it starts to make sense.
David Tennant does a comic book villian well even if he is not purple.
Agreed. The first 3 I was like what the fuck is going on. But it's slowly starting to come together now.
I'm definitely intrigued. I'm 5 eps in.
Are there any other super heroes in the show other than the main character, Luke Cage, and Kilguy? (Unless it will spoil any huge reveal)
"GET OUT OF THE ROAD YOU STUPID SANDWICH" my favorite clueless crowd guy phrase now...
I wish they would've had a prequel episode to explain the character's history. Because they didn't, it was slow going for a while.
Yes. Hellcat and nuke (he's actually a villain) this is Trish and Simpson.
I am through 6 episodes -- my main issue is the effects/action are garbage, about 60% as good as a run of the mill episode of Buffy.
There was one scene where an 'out of control incredibly strong' Jessica Jones threw a chair against a wall and it didn't break at all.
If Daredevil is a 10, this show is a 7, but still very enjoyable. Writing also much worse than Daredevil.
And Kilgrave not being purple stinks.
This was my binge watch for the Christmas weekend I just finished it. Can someone please help with the backstory a little? @ARM ? @Rakdar
Is the Rosario Dawson girl also in daredevil?
Yep, same character.
You've seen Luke Cage already, right?? This guy Mike Colter is PERFECT casting!
They should make him look like this!
