How am I even supposed to deal with this weekend when I have Tales of Zestiria to finish, Master of None to finish, and now Jessica Jones?!

One episode of Jessica Jones and Master of None a night! Continue with Zestiria at your leisure.

Yeah I'm done work in an hour and a half I'm so excited to go home and watch Jessica Jones. I restarted my Netflix membership just for it.

I also really want to check out Master of None since I've heard so many praises sung for it. But Jessica Jones!!

A grimdark lady superhero in a medium accessible to me. I am shaking with anticipation. No spoilers but how much did you love the first episode?

THE END OF THE FIRST EPISODE

THAT WAS NOT OKAY

It's everything that I wanted! My only complaint is Trish - not as a character, but oh my god, the moment the actress opened her mouth I was like what accent are you doing. But that's nothing to do with content. (Although I did like how the show's costuming department made it clear she's a bottle blonde.)

It was definitely intense. But I like intense! Does the second episode have any breathing room or is it all uphill, accelerating to 600km/h?

I finished episode five this morning before work and... ahhhh. I'M KEEPING MY COMMENTARY SPOILER FREE HERE, but I'm so in love and I want more.

I like Officer Oral. I hope he doesn't get killed off in a bloody way.

Don't tell me what happens at the end with Office Oral ok!

That scene I thought she was having a horrible Kilgrave nightmare and then they panned down and I literally shrieked because AMAZING. AAHHH. I saw what you did there, Marvel!

I also really appreciate Jeri. I remember thinking, "this is how roles for women should be written - where you could substitute a man into the role and there would literally be no difference." (Obviously, that's not a universal thing; some stories are inherently gendered, but hers isn't. I like that.) And then I found out her comics counterpart was a dude. :D

I am like two episodes from the end and my only qualm is the scene with Malcolm in the hospital because my heart literally lept into my mouth but I will try to avoid the spoilerz other than that. I feel like more could have been done there? But it was overall better than it could have been. Just. I...right now, a little too real? That scene.

I feel like I would have enjoyed Master of None except Aziz Ansari wrote that Facebook post about loving your parents and I am having complicated feelz about Family of Origin right now, and it seems like a lot of his show is about loving your family even if they're complicated? But it doesn't seem to leave room or acknowledge space for Legit Toxic Family. :/

I just. I cannot even word with my feels I just shriek occasionally and flail my arms around and scare the cats.

It's in Hollywood which means there's room for Angie to be there (or definitely in fanfic so much room!)

Also there is a Peggy interracial romance hinted at in the trailer which I think I am cool with if they are going to explore "Peggy Carter thinks your racist dating laws are bullshit but she still lives in the 1940s so how does that work" the way they explored sexism in season 1. (Because I feel like a lot of cinema is either "look at how terrible things were let us all feel horrible!" or "yay this person made it work let's ignore how unrealistic this is love conquers all!" or "welp it would have worked except now everyone's dead to teach us about our mistakes as a society.")
