Jessica Jones premiered on November 20th to amazing reviews! It seems like everyone has already binged through it, including Defenders team leader Claire! Now we begin our 13-week walk through every episode, just like we did with Daredevil, really savoring those nummy Marvel morsels. Claire is the expert, while Matt, Mel and Robin stay spoiler-free!
Our last bonus podcast before Jessica Jones premieres is an EPIC TEAM-UP between The Defenders Podcast and The Defenders TV Podcast! We join forces with John and Derek to take one last look at Daredevil, look ahead to Jessica Jones and sit back for a discussion of all things comics and superhero tv & movies.
Make sure to tune in to Netflix for Jessica Jones when it premieres on November 20th! And get your feedback in for the first episode “AKA Ladies Night”! Remember our rule! No spoilers for future episodes please!
This week’s bonus episode is the 2012 box office bomb “Vamps”, starring our Jessica Jones: Krysten Ritter. Well, she is relegated to best friend status in Amy Heckerling and Alicia Silverstone’s Clueless reunion. But she does get to sport fangs, wall-crawl like a spider-crab, indulge in a weird dirt fascination and hop in the coffin with Dan Stevens (Claire’s head-canon Iron Fist).
We didn’t like this one very much, so Vamps superfan Matt A gets to be an honorary Defender this week!
In the lead-up to the November 20th premiere of Jessica Jones on Netflix, the Defenders take a look at the 2011 remake of Fright Night, starring the Purple Man himself, David Tennant! Well, he’s not really the star, but he puts in a hilarious performance as the Criss-Anglicized version of Peter Vincent: Vampire Slayer. And as a bonus, we get the return of Bullseye himself: Colin Farrell! Excelsior!!
