Producer Melissa Rosenberg wanted to avoid actually showing rape in the story, which she called "lazy storytelling" and often a way to "spice up" male characters; she preferred to just showcase the rape-related trauma a part of the characters' everyday lives. See more »
No matter where I am, even if I'm behind bars, if you try anything I will find out, I will come for you, and it will hurt.

The opening credits are a blurred sequence (from Jessica's point of view) of neighborhoods with silhouetted characters carrying out private activities. See more »
This is how superhero movies should look like on the big screen too. Marvel stepped up their game with the trio of Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Screw them lousy previous attempts, this is the real thing. I'm a big fan of the Daredevil series, so big in fact, that my whole world revolved around Murdock and his team while watching the series. And I have to tell you people, I'm not into superheroes. I started watching Jessica Jones with high expectations, as Daredevil made me cry, smile and start training again, and I was quite disappointed by the first 2-3 episodes. But then, the magic came out and about. This show is grittier than both the others, although just in the sense that it's an emotional challenge to sit through. Now, characters are round and nice, all have some characteristics (no pun intended) that makes them likable. Even Kilgrave. As the story unfolded so did my tears start running after watching every episode. If you have a heart, you'll get the whole point of the show. Hats off to anyone involved in the production of this marvelous (again, no pun intended) gem of a TV show. I'm hoping to see much more of Jessica, her adversaries and the other saviors of NY too!
