Don't know anything about Jessica Jones apart from the snippets I've heard today.

An ex-superhero cop investigating crimes that may involve super-powered bad guys sounds exactly like the sort of crime-of-the-week setup I never want to see in a sci-fi/fantasy show these days. I'm guessing this is going to be dark and gritty with a budget that doesn't allow for big visuals.

Sony's streaming series "Powers" that came out earlier this year had a very similar premise and was far from episodic. The crimes that the were being investigated were all tied to the uber story arc/villain, similar to how it was in Daredevil.

I'm more worried by the fact that we don't have a proper trailer yet.

I'm not really worried about it, I've been pretty happy with the Netflix originals, so I'm expecting to like this one. I'll be interested to see Ritter in a this type of roll.

Between Daredevil and Jessica Jones beating the stuffing out of the bad guys, Hell's Kitchen must be not merely be the safest neighborhood in New York, but the whole country!

Another new teaser. They keep feeding us these little hors-d'oeuvres. I'm ready for the main course.

Marvel's new series 'Jessica Jones' is not for kids, and that's a good thing
By Meredith Woerner, Los Angeles Times' 'Hero Complex' Blog - Oct. 12, 2015

This past weekend at New York Comic Con, Marvel and Netflix surprised the crowd with a screening of the "Jessica Jones" pilot. And according to our round-up of first impressions posts from the lucky viewers, the new series offers something not often found in a world of fantastical superheroes: reality.

Adapted from Brian Michael Bendis' "Alias" comic, the series is centered on a struggling ex-superhero named Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), who hangs up her cape after a brutal experience. Plagued by her past, Jones seeks solace, and a rent check, as a personal investigator.

The Netflix show is produced and created by Melissa Rosenberg ("Twilight") and also introduces another Marvel hero, Luke Cage (played by Mike Colter) and the nefarious Kilgrave, aka the Purple Man, (played by "Doctor Who's" David Tennant), which may explain why the many teaser trailers for this series have been tinted purple.

Up until now, very little was known about this new Marvel creation, but those who got an early look seem pretty pleased with what was screened.

In his first-impression article he described "Jessica Jones" as "shockingly and refreshingly honest in its depiction of sex and sexuality — especially compared to the rest of Marvel's cinematic and televised output, which tends to be heterosexual and vanilla on the rare occasions when it dares to be sexual at all." He goes on to describe a sex scene taken directly from the Bendis' comic book, so "Alias" purists should be happy.

"It's the way real-life grown-ups have sex, not the way neutered TV superheroes do," Riesman wrote. "The audience at Comic-Con seemed to simultaneously clutch its pearls and lean forward in titillated fascination."

Clearly those who weren't familiar with the original comic series, which was the first contribution to Marvel's R-Rated "MAX" imprint, were in for a bit of a shock. Eric Goldman of IGN noted that the sexual content "caused some nervous laughter from the audience of several thousand people, some who brought kids - though Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb did forewarn them that the Netflix material has already proven it's not really kid-oriented."

Sexual intrigue and shock aside, the bigger takeaway from both fan and critical reaction was that "Jessica Jones" was going to dive into larger issues the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all but avoided, and the Netflix "Daredevil" series has (thus far) only dipped its feet in.

Main character Ritter will struggle with PTSD, addiction and a whole host of other problems, but according to Kelsea Stahler of Bustle, she's no shrinking violet, "At one point, [Ritter] threatens a pipsqueak with the line, 'You turn that thing on and I'll pull your underwear through your eye' and my heart soared." Stahler wrote. "This is the female 'superhero' we've been waiting for."

io9's Katharine’s Trendacosta praised the "noir" beats in the premiere episode along with the decision to focus the drama on the titular character's emotional journey, as opposed to the novel discovery of her superhero powers, "Rather than spending a lot of the first episode telling the audience who everyone is, the first episode focuses, rightly, on Jessica—who she is, what she’s gone through, and her goals." Trendacosta writes. "Her development takes center stage and everyone else orbits her."

In fact, it sounds like very little time is spent explaining anything at all in "Jessica Jones."

"The first episode creates a truly terrifying villain [David Tennant as the character Kilgrave] not by giving him a monologue, but showing the devastating effects he has," Trendacosta explains. "There’s not a lot of exposition in Jessica Jones, but the atmosphere and the characterization makes threats feel very, very real."

Not too much more was said about the Tennant character, which could mean that they're slow-burning the villain (who was not at New York Comic Con). However, the crowd reportedly went "nuts" for the New Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.

It will be interesting to see where "Jessica Jones" lands with fans. It's only the second female-lead Marvel offering since since the debut of "Agent Carter." Meanwhile, Marvel movies just pushed back the long-promised "Captain Marvel" flick. Again.

Here's hoping Carter and Jones can kick down the door for more.

All thirteen episodes of "Jessica Jones" will premiere on Nov. 20.

Here's a breakdown of the teaser trailer and discussion of what is going on in the MCU.

I'm never sure why some of these embed and some don't.

Wrong link, use the one that comes up when you click on "Share".

OMG, after watching that vid I think my nerd-meter broke. You know, the superhero universe was a whole lot smaller and easily digestible when I was a kid.

I've been a fan of Krysten Ritter ever since Walter White smothered her to death, and the Netflix 'Daredevil' was superb. So I'm there, and will probably be binging on JJ sometime in the first month of release.

Okay. I've been using the URL and most of the time it works. Thanks.

Yeah. I was cool on JJ until I saw this vid. Now I'm on board. I've been a fan of KR since Veronica Mars and like the idea of the MCU getting darker and into r-rated country.

Yes, I've used the URL in the past but got into the habit of using the share link as it always works, not sure why the URL does and doesn't sometimes.

A link to another more explicit spoilerish video is in this video too if you dare.

The full trailer is out and it looks like it could be pretty good. Definitely does enough to pique my interest and make me want to see it!
