A former superhero decides to reboot her life by becoming a private investigator.

I knew nothing of this character before it was announced that they would be making a show of it but given that I was from the same universe and network as Daredevil, there was no doubt I was going to watch it.

Boy was this hard to watch!

Where Daredevil is action, this is a psychological mindf**k. The themes are a lot heavier in this show and deal with rape of the mind. There were points where I felt that this show would have been better as a week-to-week show because I found it hard to watch more than three in a row.

Having said that, it is still a good show. The characters are interesting to watch and in what seems to be a regular occurrence with Netflix, the actors playing these characters are brilliantly casted.

My main exposure to David Tennant was Doctor Who and to see him in this as a psychotic nut job was a sight to behold. Rachael Taylor and Carrie-Anne Moss were awesome to watch and will hopefully see more of in the future.

The biggest character development and storyline would have to be from Malcolm (Eka Darville); from where he started to where he ended was just a big change in direction than what I thought he would have.

I am glad they killed Kilgrave, I don’t think I could have watched another season with him in and I’m looking forward to seeing who the villain of Season Two will be.

As hard as this show was to watch, I will still be tuning in to Season Two.
