Episode 133 Marvel’s Jessica Jones S01E01 AKA Ladies Night

November 20th finally arrived and with it the 13 episode first season of Marvel's Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter in the title role. We're introduced to a broken former superhero now earning a living as a hard-boiled detective taking the jobs that no one else wants or can see through to the end. But she has a dark past, and the man who nearly broke her, who she also believes is dead, has returned and imposed his will on another young woman. Though we don't get to see much of David Tennant's Kilgrave in the first episode, just seeing the effect he has on Jessica is enough to send chills up and down your spine.

Episode 132 Dark Angel S02E10 Brainiac

Another X-5 turns up in Seattle, but Brain not at all like those we've met up to this point. Designed to predict battle events and how individual soldiers will react to specific battlefield situations, Brain has had his eye on Max since they were children. Continuum's Terry Chen turns up as a member of the oft times ineffectual rebel group S1W, and Max once again saves Asha.
