It’s been three years since the last time we visited Broadchurch. Both Detective Inspector Alec Hardy and Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller are back on the team at Broadchruch CID after some hopefully recuperative time away when a local woman is sexually assaulted.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones – Shades of Hammett, Chandler and Lee!

Marvels-Jessica-Jones

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is quite possibly the best entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. The series’ first season is liberally sprinkled with the kind of plot and dialogue you might find in the best work of Dashiell Hammett or Philip Chandler – and seasoned with the kind of problematic superheroic action of a Stan Lee (though the actual use of powers is not as overt, for the most part, as with Netflix’s Daredevil series).

Jones is a former superhero (it ended badly for her) who has taken to working as a private investigator in Hell’s Kitchen. She is touchy, tough, paranoid and suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. She can’t stop herself from trying to help innocents who are in trouble, but she hides those impulses under snark, cynicism and a bottle of Wild Turkey (or some other equally vile concoction). If there was a poster person for Damaged Goods Hero, she would be on it.
