- Marvel's Jessica Jones on Netflix
Like just about everyone else with Netflix and a passing interest in women, superheroes, Marvel, or noir fiction, we watched Jessica Jones this week, sometimes from behind our hands. We also read the comic it's based on, but for more on that, check out this article from Fast Company. Frankly, we found the show to be significantly more compelling. For more info on Jessica Jones, read this great interview with show runner Melissa Rosenberg.
