He plays a damn good Purple Man. He's all the creepy in the comics brought to life.

Watched all 13 episodes and definitely one of the best shows I've seen. Not quite my taste - I prefer a bit more humour and action, Daredevil style, but the story was gritty and realistic, the characters plausible and and likeable, the whole feel of the world they lived in was believable.

Special mention goes to David Tennant who played the bad guy you love to hate. Cage and Jones had decent chemistry - Defenders is shaping up to be the show worth waiting for.

Wait, David Tennant is Kilgrave? I'm two episodes in so far and I have yet to see him. My hype has at least doubled knowing he's what all the build up is for.

You have no idea how much I hate you for this comment. I went from seeing Ritter as super hot to warring with my boner over seeing MJ every now and then.

You're absolutely right. Now keep yer goddamn insights to yourself from now on.

This is awesome. For those who didn't know beforehand, imagine seeing his face for the first time whenever it is that it happens (Ep. 3 or 4). I wish I hadn't known it was him now. I would've flipped the **** out when I realized it.

I really enjoyed it. It was more of a suspense/thriller than an action crime drama. Comparing it to Daredevil is like comparing Se7en to Enter the Dragon or Oldboy. And I'll echo the praise of Tennant as Purple Man as well. Just a really well done show.

So I'm trying to watch this with my niece but there were a few sex scenes in the first episode. I can't let her watch these scenes, but I don't want to skip through half of the show with her. How frequent are the sex scenes after the first episode? Kissing/making out is fine.

There's about 5-8 total. It's not gratuitous.

If she's not old enough to watch sex scenes she's not old enough to watch this series. Consenting sex between adults is the mildest and lightest of the many adult topics covered as the show progress.

Thanks, everyone, I appreciate the answers. I'm the uncle so I don't make the rules with what she can and can't see, but imo she's old enough to understand.

Couple of things:

1. I saw MJ at certain times, too. I just didn't post it. Some thoughts...should just not be posted.


2. She looks very similar to a girl I dated about 10 years ago. And now I'm thinking I have an ex that looks like MJ. I think this feeling I have is disgust.

Disgusted that I didn't hit that after realizing she looked like MJ!

I also felt the show missed a good opportunity to follow a more interesting storyline. Jessica [SPOILER - highlight to read]: trying to turn Kilgrave good was actually a lot more interesting then what she ended up doing with him.

And Luke said "an experiment" gave him his powers, which means he's only had the original one in prison. He gets several on panel boosts through the years. So at the time I'm guessing he's around his original Power Man/Tiara levels and getting a 12 gauge to the chin would definitely put him down.


Given what else he survived no the shotgun doesn't make any sense. If the [SPOILER - highlight to read]: bar explosion didn't KO him then the shotgun shouldn't of.

I was also very interested in this possible development. One of the best things about Tennant's performance is that there are times when you really feel for the guy, despite yourself. Like, had he only been shown what being "good" was, how different might he have turned out? Then again, he's an adult and ultimately makes his own decisions so does he really deserve a chance at redemption now?

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: An explosion, where damage is more widespread, and a shotgun blast directly aimed at his head are a bit different, I think. Not a physics whiz or anything but I believe that was what they were going for.

Pretty much. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: A point blank shotgun blast to the chin cause him to be concussed. It was like a very powerful uppercut.

Also keep in mind [SPOILER - highlight to read]: In the comics, multiple times a powerful attack that hasn't managed to penetrate Cage's skin, has left him badly injured and medical types had to be creative to help him since they couldn't get inside his body with normal means. A 12g shotgun blast point blank to the chin probably scrambled his brains, that's why they had to drain the fluid and the swelling.

Apparently not. Again, one was a widespread blast while the other was concentrated on his head. Even if it's not completely accurate to how it'd go in "real life," it's enough to suspend disbelief imo.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: The explosion was moreso a gas fire with a strong flashover which blew the windows out of the bar (Cage mentioned having stood there in the gas for hours waiting on Jessica per Kilgrave's command). As was mentioned before, the force of the explosion was not focused directly on Cage and was distributed throughout the bar. The shotgun blast, on the other hand, was a compact high velocity blow directly to his head from close range. The force of the explosion was distributed over more area of his steel hard skin. The point blank shotgun blast direct to his head rattled his brain inside of his steel hard skin.

*edit

Or what 80s said.
