Dude Watches – Jessica Jones – S1E7

Oh boy– we’re back with another episode of Jessica Jones. We’re pretty sure you can feel the enthusiasm in this introduction, so let’s just get down to it.

Actually, no, scratch that. I’m not talking about mopey-ass emo wonder-tween tonight.

Kilgrave is the best part of this show. This show should be called “We Billed David Tennant As A Star But He’s Only In The Entire Thirteen-Hour Series For A Grand Total of Seven Minutes.” Or something like that. As a matter of fact, forget Jessica Jones, this entire write up will be dedicated to David Tennant for two reasons: 1) we haven’t even recorded yet so who knows what we’re actually going to talk about and 2) David Tennant is a bad ass in everything he does, this shameful show included.

So, let’s list the reasons David Tennant is a bad ass as Kilgrave (which I feel like is just really snarky David Tennant in real life):

  1. The hair. Dude’s hair is on POINT in this show. Good job Hair & Make Up
  2. The accent. It goes so well with the Kilgrave snark. Almost like Kilgrave would be boring were it not for the accent.
  3. The stare. Tennant nails the “Yeah, I’m a sociopath, but I can pretend that I feel the feelings I’m emulating so dammit I miss you Jessica” stare to a T. Obviously this is very specific but this show doesn’t give us much to go on.
  4. No reason here, just that Tennant was fucking DOPE in Broadchurch– both seasons are on Netflix. Go watch it.
  5. The suit. The man can wear purple. Besides the fact that it feels really hokey in that “They call me Mr. Glass and everything I wear is purple because I’m a villain in a movie, in case you didn’t know but whatever just watch for the surprise ending” sort of way.
  6. “Jessica!” The way Tennant yells Jessica’s name is my favorite thing about this show. It’s like an accidental catch phrase or maybe its just a soundbite begging to be made into a ring tone, I don’t know, but it’s catchy.

Wow. Lot’s of quotation marks tonight.

Anyway, there’s six good reasons to watch David Tennant– Seriously considering finding a soundbite to make a ring tone. Now, go watch Broadchurch.

As always, thanks for listening!
