If you're a Krysten Ritter fan, you've probably binge-watched Jessica Jones on Netflix at least once. If you haven't seen it yet, then what are you even doing reading this? Go watch Jessica kick a$$!

For those of you who have watched the Marvel Netflix Original, you probably don't know what to do about your new celebrity girl crush as you impatiently await Season 2. Luckily, the actress has had her fair share of roles that showcase her awesome self. Here's your Krysten Ritter must-watch list:

1. Don't Trust The B In Apartment 23

This ABC sitcom sadly ended after its second season, but you could watch it over and over again, always entertained. The series features Krysten Ritter as Chloe (a.k.a. the notorious b*tch in apartment 23). Chloe is a self-entitled heiress fashionista who makes her living as a con artist in New York.

One of her cons involves stealing from roommates by driving them insane with her unethical lifestyle until they move out and surrender their advance rent payment and deposit. That is, until one sweet and innocent roommate, June, manages to surpass any Chloe-related obstacles until the two eventually become friends. Definitely, a worthy show to watch, particularly since we all love watching Ritter be an upfront b*tch.

2. Breaking Bad

Although Krysten Ritter is not one of the main characters, she does have a significant role starring in 10 episodes of Season 2. The AMC show is addictive in itself, but it only gets worse when her character appears. Ritter plays Jane Margolis, Jesse Pinkman's new tenant/love interest who struggles with drug addiction.

5. Big Eyes

Because Krysten Ritter plays the perfect advising BFF, she was cast as such in Big Eyes, a Tim Burton drama. The movie is based on a real-life story of acclaimed 1950's painter Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) and the difficulties she faces in her marriage. Her abusive husband claims her paintings as his own, forcing him to live fearfully in his shadow. Ritter's character, DeeAnn, bears witness to Margaret's struggles and does her best to support her closest friend without knowing the truth.
