written by Jamus

Well, we can dispense with the swooning, I guess. We’re well past that stage now. Oh, come on. You kids need to quiet down with all the noise you’re generating from the friction of those bums of yours. No, don’t do that, you’ll break the be–SEE?! What did I just tell you?

A few other things get broken in this, Episode 3 of Jessica Jones: bed frames, hearts, microphones, household objects, and a few other details that I’d rather have remained intact. Let’s have a look at the damage.

There be spoilers here, yar.

You know, I think I keep getting chicken cordon bleu confused with chicken parmesan. I mean, they’re both delicious if they’re done right, really. Similar preparation with the flattening of chicken breasts with a tenderizer, use of bread crumbs for a crispy exterior, great with Swiss cheese. This nonsense about salmonella is completely unfounded if you’re actually bothering to cook the damned things properly in an oven that roasts everything anyways, and…

[Review] Jessica Jones Episode 1×01: “Ladies Night”

written by Jamus

Hello, Made Of Fail.

So a little while ago, I was approached by Dayna to review a show I’d never heard of – not from beyond the rumblings from Netflix, at least. After a discussion where she ended up accusing me of being a lazy moo and not knowing a good show if it bit me on the eyelids, I eventually agreed to become the newest reviewer for you fine people and to dive into something different – Marvel’s Jessica Jones. It should be noted that I’m going into this assignment with the perspective of a newcomer. Besides the fact that this is another branch of the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe, I know nothing about this show. No, I don’t know what a Jessica Jones is, and I don’t know what a Kilgrave is besides him being portrayed by a former Time Lord (David Tennant).

So now I resign myself to nestling into the couch, stiff drink in hand, safe from the sudden blizzard that arrived only yesterday and has stayed for an extra period of play as the opening credits begin to roll. The nerve of Dayna, honestly. Thinking on making me watch something that I might enjoy with crime and noir-ish overtones, and…oh. Oh, dear. That man has just been thrown through a pane of door glass, and now he’s being berated in a comical manner. Now the dead of night is already settled over New York and there’re mysteries to be solved, and…

Well, I might be here a while.

Let’s begin, shall we?

There be spoilers within.
