I loved the 'Alias' series so much. I think I've read it a dozen times, which I've never done with a comic.
I love that Hogarth is a woman! What an amazing turn. This show, I think, did so well with casting and fully fleshing out all the characters without having any PSA style moments. My (black) friend pointed out to me a moment that stuck out to him was when Cage asked Jessica if it was because he was black that she was ending it. A throwaway line, over the course of a season, but it was so real. The writing on this show was so realistic, which I appreciate, because I think too often superhero movies get turned into too-cheesy or too-dramatic or too-fake. They're still supposed to be real humans.
Ritter did a phenomenal job in every scene she was in- the beginning felt very Veronica Mars with superheroes to me, which was cool. The title sequence is so right and perfect, not at all cheesy like I find a lot of title sequences.
They address addiction, recovery, PTSD, and manipulation/coercion/assault so well. The scenes where she and Killgrave were just talking...they were so realistic. I adored how their powers always seemed like an afterthought- yeah, he's controlling them through superpowers, but you don't necessarily have to believe it's a superpower, because he's so damn manipulative. Killgrave was stunningly well acted by Tennant.
My only complaint is the actor they found to be Simpson wasn't very convincing as a good guy. He always felt bad, even on the 'good' side, but it didn't seem like that was the intent of the writing.
