What’s the Big Deal about JESSICA JONES?

Long-time readers of Gas & Sparta know Your Humble Correspondent has an extremely high tolerance for Dreck: crappy movies, mini-series, TV shows etc.

Good Lord, I made it through the first two seasons of Fear the Walking Dead for cripes sakes, not to mention last year’s All Hail Hillary Clinton season of Homeland.

And yes, I’ve also chronicled Good Stuff: Fargo, Poldark and the recent Netflix offerings Godless and Babylon Berlin spring to mind.

So I gotta tell ya, I had High Hopes for Jessica Jones (I know it’s been out a while, but I gotta clean the closets and organize the sock drawer too…) – I mean I really liked Krysten Ritter in Breaking Bad and she is, well, pretty Hawt too.

Which is the Long Road to the point that I have given the show three episodes and it just doesn’t do anything for me.

I liked the other Marvel show I watched on Netflix – The Punisher – so I thought what the hey, may as well take Jessica out for a test drive.

So what’s wrong with me? (Wait, that’s a rhetorical question asked by someone who wields The Ban Hammer ya’ll…)

I’m sure there are folks Out There who “get” the whole super hero genre deal but it just kinda leaves me saying “meh”.

So your assignment, all you Mr. Phelps wannabe’s out there, if you wish to take it, is to convince Your Uncle Bruno why he should soldier on with Ms. Jones (at least to the end of Season One.)

Otherwise I’m throwing in the towel and hunting up another candidate for Time Waster Honors.

Bruno Strozek

Written by Bruno Strozek

Bruno Strozek is the author of occasionally semi-coherent piffle and has been a Writer/Editor at Sparta Report since July 2016.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Aptly described as both "hilarious and deeply disturbed" Strozek has enthusiastically embraced the recommendation of the late Raoul Duke that "when the going gets weird the weird turn pro."

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
