Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 8 Recap and Review – ‘AKA WWJD?’

Jessica Jones takes a break from the grittier parts of New York City and moves out to the suburbs where Jessica and Kilgrave are living the most f***ed up parts in Beauty and the Beast. Jessica plays the role of the strong-willed Beauty. Kilgrave plays the privileged, self-centered prick who was turned into a sociopathic control freak because...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 7 Recap and Review – ‘AKA Top Shelf Perverts’

This is where the game changes. Like a dog scoping out and marking his territory, Kilgrave sneaks into Jessica’s apartment, he ruffles through a few of her things, he uses the toilet, and then he meets poor, sweet Ruben from upstairs. As some awkward declaration of love, Ruben brought down a plate of banana bread for Jessica. He makes...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 6 Recap and Review – ‘AKA You’re a Winner!’

Jessica Jones has had plenty of “Man, that’s evil” moments regarding Kilgrave. Also creepy. That man ruined purple for me. It was my favorite color!!! We know he’s evil. We know about the messed up things he’s done to several people. We know that the people he’s controlled come out differently in the end. Rape...

Supergirl Season 1, Episode 5 Recap and Review – ‘How Does She Do It?’

“How Does She Do It?” is all about Kara stretching herself too thin balancing her personal, professional, and superheroic life. Adulting is hard, yo. Add a kid in the mix for a day, and it can things straight up chaotic. But this is Supergirl, we’re talking about. What can go wrong? Cat is away on business, Kara has to babysit her shy...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 5 Recap and Review – ‘AKA The Sandwich Saved Me’

If you were wondering what Jessica Jones was like before Kilgrave, we get to see her just before meeting him. Turns out she’s just as sarcastic and antagonistic as she is now, but with a dash more pep. Before brooding Jess, there was frustrated Jess who was in between jobs like the rest of us poor schlubs. I honestly thought...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 4 Recap and Review – ‘AKA 99 Friends’

“AKA 99 Friends” plays up the film noir aspects to a T to make up for the last two episodes. Life must go on, and Jessica needs to get paid if she wants to continue drowning herself in Wild Turkey booze and pay those bills. Catching Kilgrave is very much on the menu still, but Jessica isn’t exactly the “paragon of mental...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 3 Recap and Review – ‘AKA It’s Called Whiskey’

Luke and Jessica’s first one night stand two episodes ago probably felt just as awkward as it looked as both were holding back their considerable strengths respectively. Now that they are aware of each other’s superpowers, they’re free to delight in a no-holds-barred, free-for-all, sexy wrestling match. Maybe they should hold...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 1 Recap and Review – ‘AKA Ladies Night’

A day late to the game, but that’s what happens when you have a day job. Christina (me) will be binge-watching Jessica Jones all weekend, posting quick reviews and recaps after each episode. Be sure to check Legion of Leia often! “Main Street. Birch Street. Higgins Drive. Cobalt Lane.” I almost took this as a coded prayer when...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3 Recap and Review – Devils You Know

The search for more Inhumans continue — S.H.I.E.L.D. Is looking to recruit while the ATCU is…still keeping their plans close to the vest. The only difference now is that both of these organizations are cooperating. More or less. Meanwhile, the hunt for Ward continues and Simmons is still struggling being back on Earth. Lash shows his...

Review: Seventh Son

Man, women are the worst. Especially when it’s that time of the month “The Blood Moon.” You know who else is a giant bummer? Minorities.   If only a couple of white dudes would come along and save us from them!   Fuckin’ witches.
