The second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones is here, and it received generally positive reviews from critics.

The Netflix show, the strength of stars Krysten Ritter as a private eye with super -, have been praised for roles that break gender stereotypes.

The New York Times said the second season premiere “in time for the” Time’s Up “the moment”.

The paper of the critic Mike Hale said that it “returns to some familiar situations and characterizations”.

He wrote: “We have seen that a powerful person, the dancing, the downward spiral of playing in a room with several hookers, cocaine and embarrassing, but this person is usually a woman.

“We have the protagonists as seen, the bottle of anger turns you grumpy, violent and ruthless to the other, but they are usually men,…

“These representations are interesting to analyze and refreshing to see.”


Alexandra Pollard, writing for The Telegraph, says: “the fact That it was written and filmed pre-Weinstein allegations, and that the show is largely female creative team looked at toxic masculinity, before the current cultural moment, everyone is forced to do so, is only one of the brands of your brilliance.”

Similar to Angela watts cutter is Wired, said: “season two comes to a random time for Netflix, but it does not mean that the streaming service to sit in on Jones’ issues, to the harnessing of the moment – these aspects were already there.”

Vulture’s Matt Zoller Seitz does not, and it is a thrill, said: “knight is great to watch even if the dialogue, you play the kind of charismatic, suffer Ruck role, which is usually offered only to male stars.”

Gender aside roles, the show is the second series got a warm reaction, although some critics said that it has not first all the way up to the.

Writing for IndieWire, Liz Shannon Miller said: “Damn, it’s good to be hanging out with Jessica Jones.

“While the narrative around her to long to find cohesion, it’s still in a raging, in-depth character study, which is not normally expected from this genre.

“We could have a little whine about how much television in General, there are out there, especially when it comes to the Marvel world. But a third season of Jessica Jones would be one of them, we would be happy to welcome you.”


But The Guardian sounded a note of caution. “The show is struggling to find solid ground,” wrote Rebecca Nicholson.

“For a genre that’s all about beefed-up human beings, it is strange that the Marvel series that can so often feel so tired and slow and it is disappointing that Jessica Jones falls into the trap here.

“The first episode is particularly patchy and sometimes even boring, alleviated only through a supposedly tense chase scene, turns into an unintentional homage to Benny Hill.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s Daniel Fienberg said: “the TV probably has more than its share of super – hero /comic-book, and the knight is perhaps my favorite performance.”

But, he added: “The new season first of all, the narrative is missing, brought up in the momentum of David Tennant’s Kilgrave [in season one].”


In your report, for diversity, Sonia Saraiya said: “Marvel’s Jessica Jones is never a Marvel TV show, with all what that means – soggy characterization, plotting, convenient, and a whole bunch of supporting characters with bizarre, complex biographies, and a predominance of wide mysteriously and endlessly complex science-y plots.

“And yet in this otherwise standard construction, so many hidden treasures scenes, the super hero meditation on vulnerability and power, frailty and mortality, the relationship of the powerful to the powerless, and, Yes, of course, to the inherited trauma of the women,-simply because the subject matter is to be so, so much more than the rest of the Marvel universe interested.”

Empire Dan Jolin wrote: “Dramatically, it is a bit disappointing.

“What the first season was the strongest and smartest of the Marvel/Netflix set was twist as it presents itself as less of a superhero story with a feminist twist, as an intelligent feminist noir thriller with super heroes.

“Well, apart from some post-Weinstein-relevant drama with a sleazy filmmaker of Trish’s child-actor-a-days, the show focuses more on the distrust and prejudices Jessica faces as a coming out of the closet [super hero].”
