It's on variety and everything.

I'd watch it. I loved Alias and I loved Jessica as a character before she became Luke Cage's baby momma.

Yeah, Alias and the (upcoming) Powers TV thingie seem like perfect 2nd (3rd?) wave of superhero entertainment - after many a origin story, this behind-the-scenes through the eye of a former hero, now a "commoner" angle seems like it can yield some good, smart drama, if handled right.

Any news on the status of this?

I just hope they don't let Bendis write any of the scripts, the shite he's been churning out since finishing this...

I don't think there's any reason they would, judging by how many comics writers had the right of first draft for their properties so far, with pretty much none of it reaching the screens.

True, but Bendis does not think like other comics writers: you just have to look at Secret Invasion to see that. ;)

If Millar can't get his drafts past the studios, I doubt Bendis will be able, especially if it's not directly produced by Marvel studios.

Still, it's written by Twilight screenwriter, so we might wind up wishing it was Bendis.

She also wrote for Dexter. I don't actually like the show, but there's loads of people who do.

It was a bit clunky in places but, for the most part, I enjoyed the first episode - [ Spoiler : it had that one thing you need in a pilot, a memorable ending ],

episode 2 had some great moments and some super cringeworthy moments.

I really enjoyed the first two episodes, though I'm pretty sure this 'Kristen Ritter' person is actually a collab between Eliza Dushku and Paget Brewster

We're binge-watching, and are up to ep. 9. I really, really like it. They're treating the heavy subject matter very well so far, and both the main characters (JJ and Kilgrave) are superbly cast. Kilgrave is supremely creepy. Some extremely tense moments.

The acting has caused me pain in eps 2 and 3. Not completely, just in certain parts. They'll be going along fine, and then say something stupidly. It might be an Americanism thing, because we Americans do say things differently than you euros do.

I'm a bit into episode 10 and no spoilers please but why the hell is Jessica pleased about being able to resist Kilgrave when she did let him go?

It's been a few days so I can't recall. But it was an exchange between Jessica and Luke.

I meant the first time, and apparently I missed the fact that Lester had tackled her on Kilgrave's word.

Two other questions; what was Reva doing with the flashdrive? And who hired Jessica to spy on Luke and his married girlfriend if it wasn't the husband, and why?
