Dude Watches – Jessica Jones – S1E5

This week the gang talks Jessica Jones, season 1, episode 5, “AKA The Sandwich Saved Me.”

Well let me tell you something little girl, the sandwich may have saved you, but it did not save this show. You’ll notice a departure from our usual format in that we spend forty minutes crapping on this episode, save for two items: Kilgrave and Malcolm. Three out of four podcast hosts agree that Kilgrave and Malcolm are the only believable characters in the entire show. Generally speaking, we’re not fans of Jones, Walker or Simpson, and we spend this episode trying to discover WHY we just don’t like this show.

This week’s episode centers on Jessica helping Malcolm get clean, and the budding relationship Trish and Simpson. There’s also the matter of the botched capture event on Kilgrave, but blink and you’ll miss that. Here’s what you need to know: Malcolm wasn’t JUST doping because he was under Kilgrave’s influence and Kilgrave is a very, very cautious man.

Now you can move on to the next episode.

Obviously it’s easy to crap on someone’s work when you have nothing invested in it, which is not our intention, but we find it hard to enjoy this show, especially when it has been so critically and socially lauded. More than once we’ve asked ourselves what we’re missing. Sure there are glimmers of talent smattered through out the show, but the missteps, and poor writing overshadow those quality takes.

As always, thanks for listening!
