I started marathoning this after I got home this afternoon, except I thought it was only 9 episodes -- so when I hit episode 10 and it was midnight I was kinda regretting my choice. So I definitely don't have a lot of brain atm. Edit: [Edited to add more commentary after some sleep and backreading on Tumblr now that I can take "jessica jones" off my blacklist. This post covers a bunch of the thoughts I had.] /edit

One of my early thoughts was: This show is as dark as the gif sets I see on Tumblr indicate Daredevil to be -- but it's full of ladies! Edit: (Including canon queerness -- where the queerness isn't the primary character/plot element about the characters. I appreciate that the background feels more multi-racial than MCU/tv often does, but the primary cast is still primarily white -- and here's some good critical commentary about some the problematic racial dynamics of the season.) /edit

I also appreciate that it does some work deconstructing the Nice Guy trope -- and does some important stuff around consent. Edit: (I concur with the stuff I'd read before watching the show about how if you have a history of sexual assault, or abuse generally, this show is highly likely to trigger you. Not only is Kilgrave's mind control a stand-in for mundane abuse dynamics, but the show also does a lot around manipulating/controlling/abusing people even when you don't have superpowers to enforce it. There are also some serious elements of family abuse, which I didn't really see mentioned in the initial buzz around the show.) /edit

Edit2: This post -- and lots of the stuff about "Smile" incl. e.g. this and this, and this on catcalling; and this on believing victims. /edit
