Final Thoughts

I can not remember the first season enough to know which I liked better, my brother GC liked the first season better, but I do know that I like Jessica Jones better than the other Marvel Netflix shows that I have seen so far to my surprise.

I liked this better than some of the last few things that I have seen on Netflix, but there were some things that bothered me about this season.

In my opinion this season seemed to send some bad messages to people (especially women) like it is okay for women to go around treating people badly, letting your worse emotions out on others and letting those emotions influence you, having random throwaway unprotected sex with random untested people (especially when you are emotional), eyeing people right in front of you like they are sexual objects and treating them like such at times, drinking too much alcohol a lot on an empty stomach, physically assaulting people when you are emotional just because they say something that you do not like, trying to set someone up to murder someone, murdering someone, do not eat much or at all or even somewhat healthy, do not get counseling when you clearly need help, do these things and more instead of better and healthier things that you can do to help yourself or instead of getting help and do these things when you are emotional without thinking or worrying about consequences to yourself and others et cetera.

It just felt like some things like that in this season were a response to certain negative often male based things in society, instead of pointing out how these things are bad and showing a better way, they just made it seem that it was okay for women to do it and not men instead of it being wrong for anyone to do things like that.

This still was not enough to make me not like the show, this season clearly had a more female focus, which was good in some ways but I do not like some of those bad messages being sent to people (especially women) instead of pointing out those flaws and showing a better way.

I also do not like how Jessica Jones has not grow that much as a character, her lifestyle is terrible and killing her and her relationships but she will not get help or even try to live healthier, and she can not fight (her hand-to-hand combat skills are garbage) and she made no progress even after Trish Walker showing her some Krav Maga fighting techniques that she learned last season but Jessica has not improved or even bothered to learn to fight at all.

But I still like the character of Jessica Jones even with all of these flaws, even though they are powering her down from the comics from what I read on Wikipedia, but I hope that her character will grow and improve.

I also do not like how they separate Jessica Jones from the other Marvel shows so much, how they are still separating her and Luke Cage, and how they seemed to have changed her story possibly too much from the comics based on some of the things that I saw on Wikipedia.

I probably liked this season better than Chris Stuckmann did:
