OK here is the thing. If you are expecting Jessica Jones to put on a cape and go flying through the air then you will be disappointed. This is more a noir drama then a superhero story and yet it is also both. You could almost take away the superpowers completely and still have a deep meaningful story about a woman dealing with personal demons who is forced to confront the man who haunts her dreams. Add a world where powers and powered people exist and that is an added bonus. All the characters have chemistry with each other and the story itself is a good one. This isn't Daredevil and there isn't a brutal fight every episode so if that is what you are looking for you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a good and personal story then you will like this.
