Super Hero Speak – #134: Jessica Jones AKA Jewel of Denial

This week Dave, Ben and John review Jessica Jones. The latest in the Marvel Netflix series Jessica delivers a gritty and deeply emotional punch. Be warned as usual this episode contains spoilers for Jessica Jones. Though the guys all agree the show is really good, some of them don’t agree with the subject matter of the show and this leads to a nice long debate. Sweet Christmas this is an interesting episode. But please let us know your opinions on the show. We really want to hear from you whether via email/Twitter or Facebook all feedback is welcome. Sit back and enjoy our review of Jessica Jones.
