>How can you enjoy a show about a shitty person?

95% of the critically acclaimed shows of the past 16 years have been about shitty people.

The two biggest shows that are currently on TV are about shitty people(GOT and TWD).

This is what most prestige TV is m8.

No matter how much you want to do good most likely you will fail, people will die, and you will still have use murder to fix it.

Kinda like running errands, you know what you need but the only place that has it is on the other side of town. So you stop at a million places closer hoping that they have what you need but they never do. Ultimately you wasted more time and effort trying to make the job easier then if you just went across town from the start.

>>79123764
>about bland cliche character and a shitty cast
Yeah, it's so great to watch a show about a generic "rough girl with tough life", her equally cliche friends and the most boring and unthreatening antagonist since The Brain Surgeon on Dexter.

If I wanted to watch a character-driven thriller with a protagonist who's an emotional wreck and an antagonist who's an outright monster, I'd rewatch Hannibal, anyway. It was more exciting than JJ could ever be despite padding pre-Red Dragon stuff for 2 and half seasons.

Yes, things went very badly, but if she just killed Kilgrave, she'd have just wound up Hope's cellmate. Hell, the DA still wanted to throw the book at her when she did kill him, despite dozens of witnesses to the affair.

Jessica Jones is like Man of Steel done right, because she actually tried her hardest to do everything but murder, then she sees how disastrously it goes and finally she uses her last resort. She was really trying to be a hero despite claiming that she didn't want to be one, and it took a lot of suffering for her to realize how far from a hero she actually was, at least where Kilgrave was concerned.

Years ago on /tv/ when James Cameron's Avatar came out, there was this Russian tripfag named Abatap that would shitpost about 'Neyney' (his waifu) and he would somehow find every post on /tv/ that mentioned Avatar in a negative light and tell them it was the best movie that changed cinema forever.

It could be a thread about Enter the Void and he'd still see your post and reply to it with "0/10 Cry More".

What I'm trying to say is that more and more, every day, the MOS fans on this board remind me of Abatap. Just like 50 or so Abataps that stalk this board for any reply that dares mention their movie in a negative light, and much like him you're all really annoying but fun to watch.

I'ts noir meaning it's about someone who ACTUALLY fucked up to get where they are. The story has to be about someone who ISN'T with the good guys an instead is off doing their own thing in some seedy office because they're not accepted elsewhere.

They didn't have one, they had a 'theme'. They also thought that so long as the theme was in your face and 'controversial', you wouldn't think about the actual plot enough to realize the fact there's a second half is only possible because all of the main characters and side characters, not just Jessica, were so hopelessly stupid they would wander out into traffic if they didn't have more episodes to needlessly pad out.

I don't know who's bright idea it was to have Killgrave escape that holding cell in that way, but whoever they are they need to thank the stars that people don't think too hard about this show's plot.

Of course, this becomes completely retarded when they learn
>Oh, hey, his powers are a virus. It's a biological, scientifically provable, easily understandable thing that could be gotten from a corpse if they needed... or a fetus, even! Hey, what do you know! We don't have to keep him alive anymore, we can prove this with science!

>>it's okay to let murderers walk around because rape victims lives are more valuable than other random innocent people

How about It's okay to value your own closure and sanity over other people? How about its okay to value justice over the easy way out for once? How about it's okay to admit that mistakes you think you have made are out of your control? How about it's better to have someone pay for their crimes instead of just killing them and expecting everyone to pretend nothing happened?

If you didn't get any of the messages being blatantly driven home by this series than I'd strongly recommend sticking to comics.

What murderer got to walk around?

Jess herself? Killing a mass rapist and murderer while he was in the midst of his crimes is justifiable homicide.

And that's not even getting STARTED on the argument that he's not REMOTELY containable by the MCU justice system.
>>
>>79135655
It goes further than that. There is no actual way for them to prove Killgrave can mindcontrol people in a court of law. And even if they managed that, there is no way for them to prove that Killgrave was using his powers on the people in question. Not without intentionally exposing people to Killgrave's powers.
>>
>>79136889
Except that they didn't value justice, or not taking the easy way out, because in the end she just did the wrong thing and took the easy way out anyway. The only difference was because she waited so long the body count was a lot higher.

You are only looking at it through Jessica and that's what's stopping you from seeing all the messages

Jessica was trying to stop Killgrave without killing him to get that chick out of jail but what about when the chick killed herself so Jessica wouldn't have any reason to keep him alive? Was that the easy way out for her? Was she not valuing justice over her own life?

Either way you seem to just be looking for faults in a very blunt series message wise so you are either stupid or have too much time on your hands.
>>
>>79137275
>There is no actual way for them to prove Killgrave can mindcontrol people in a court of law

Before or after the parents reveal? Because afterwards would be a snap. Literally just get some of the virus he's omitting and take it to a lab, they can see the effects on humans in no time at all. It would be super fucking easy, especially with those tapes showing how he acquired this unique condition. Like, two minutes, tops.

>And even if they managed that, there is no way for them to prove that Killgrave was using his powers on the people in question.

They could prove Killgrave for certain had sex with Hope, as... you know, baby. Baby fetus. And then they prove he can control minds, and then they use those 'clues' he left for Jessica to show they were together at the time, and bam. Case closed.

>Not without intentionally exposing people to Killgrave's powers.

Unless he's still in that nice, cozy cell where they get samples of the virus from him and, once his abilities are proven, they can take the proper measure to have him contained and then that nifty support group can come together and get justice.

Not that it matters, I guess. The lawyer still had to take a healthy dose of stupid to either not believe he could mind control someone in which case she was letting him out for no reason, or believed he could control you just by being near you and took no precautions despite being in the same room as the guy who your associate says raped her and made a bunch of people kill themselves when he escapes.

Pretty much absolutely everyone had to be the dumbest motherfuckers on the planet for this not to be over.

I find it kind of interesting that Daredevil is a show about a hero who is determined to kill his nemesis and then realizes that it's better to bring that nemesis to justice, whereas Jessica Jones is a show about a hero who is determined to bring her nemesis to justice and then realizes that its better to kill them.

Since the next season of Daredevil is pitting Matt against Frank as moral opposites in how they handle crime, I'm almost positive this is the lead-in to some sort of moral conflict between Matt and Jessica in Defenders.

They didn't let him walk around.

Do you know how stupid it would be to go to a police station with a corpse and be like "Yo, this guy mind controlled my friend to kill her parents"

>>
>>79137623
The virus itself wouldn't be enough, as it'd be isolated from Killgrave. Proving Killgrave had sex with Hope just proves he had sex with Hope. Even if you could prove he had mind control powers, you couldn't prove that he used his mind control powers. You'd be building a circumstantial case that hinges on a guy having mind control powers. They'd have been better off trying to get him on stalking charges against Jessica.
>>
>>79137737
Right, but again, it's still a massive gap of logic because

>A, she doesn't think he has mind control powers, in which case what the fuck is he going to do?

>B, he does have mind control powers, and she remains IN THE ROOM after sabotaging it. With no protection. From the guy who you now believe made people kill themselves by talking at them and now know does not leave traces of himself because that's what Jessica said.

Again, no matter which way you look at her actions, they make no sense. What was the plan? Let him out, hope the rapist/murderer doesn't use the powers you are now convinced he has, and then, what, just wait for him to go kill his Ex-wife because Jessica said there's a 12 hour time limit?

How bad can the screenplay possibly be when you actually write

Yeah but if a woman accused a man of rape and then her lawyer proved beyond a reasonable doubt that the man she was accusing of rape emitted pheromones that allowed him to command anyone to carry out any command he gave them, that circumstantial evidence would be more than enough to convince a jury of average citizens - especially ones as alarmist and mistrustful of superpowers as the Marvel general public - that the crime had been committed.

Don't try and tell me that a jury wouldn't go for that.
>>
>>79137979
So, again, why does she stick around? What is she gaining by being there? Why is she not taking any precautions knowing what he can do to not be in the area to get mind controlled?

Let's pretend the deal makes sense for a second, and that she thinks he's a standup enough guy he will deliver and not just kill her, why stick around? What does she get out of that? She knows it's futzed. She futzed it. Either he's going to go through with it or he's not, and her being there isn't going to help one or the other.

But, of course, without this bit of stupid ball, he wouldn't escape.
>>
>>79137885
>The virus itself wouldn't be enough, as it'd be isolated from Killgrave.

No, no it wouldn't it would have his DNA all over it. Because clearly they're going to take it from a blood sample. It would be distinct for him, and hey, mind control virus in that blood. What do you know.

>Proving Killgrave had sex with Hope just proves he had sex with Hope

And that he had mind control powers. Which means there is suddenly very reasonable doubt that an otherwise stable girl shot her parents.

>. Even if you could prove he had mind control powers, you couldn't prove that he used his mind control powers.

You could prove he, with his mind control powers, was in contact with her from the length of the now scientificly proven limits of said mind control powers, and very easily build a case of doubt as to if the guy who a support group of people says made them do fucked up shit made her do something like shoot her parents.

> You'd be building a circumstantial case that hinges on a guy having mind control power

Which would work out way better because the jury would be like "OH SHIT HE CAN CONTROL PEOPLE LOCK HIM UP FOREVER" because that scares people.

Who says it's in his blood?

Secondly, the virus makes people obey him, specifically. Without Kilgrave himself giving commands you couldn't prove that the virus does anything.

>And that he had mind control powers.
Not at all.

Said lawyer would also have to prove that said rapist was aware that he was emitting pheromones and exploiting that emission for his own ends.

Never, ever involve a support group in your personal life because, while they'll help initially, eventually they'll invite themselves into your business and ruin all your progress because you proving that the problems you all face can be overcome in direct and calculable ways shames them and their inability to do so in their own lives. Eventually they think they know what's best for you instead of coming to terms with the fact that the you who needed them and the normal, functioning you are two different people and one of those people doesn't have a personal stake in coming back for the rest of their fucking life.

Or maybe that's just me projecting.

Proving that he has them does not prove that he used them. Plus the method by which it's been suggested they prove he has powers is illegal in and of itself meaning that it's inadmissible as evidence. And the method suggested hinges entirely on them isolating the virus, exposing a test subject to it, and then Killgrave controlling the test subject. It hinges on Killgrave proving their case for them. All he has to do is sit there doing nothing and all they can prove is that he's a medical curiosity.

>Who says it's in his blood?

The parents. And us, when we say his veins turn purple.

>Secondly, the virus makes people obey him, specifically. Without Kilgrave himself giving commands you couldn't prove that the virus does anything.

Yeah, because there's absolutely no way to prove a virus is attaching itself to anything in the brain of a human, and what parts of a brain it is attaching itself to, and what effect it's having when it attaches itself. That's not something we've been doing for over 50 years. Oh, wait.

Fuck, they don't even have to make him say a command, they could literally map every single part this virus is taking over. Or, I don't know, his parents could explain how it works? And then they show those videos that shows how he got it? And then that support group could confirm it's effects? And then she could prove he had mind control powers better than someone acting on camera could ever dream of and maybe even figure out a retrovirus so he could be stripped of his powers and locked up in buttfuck prison?

With the virus and a steady supply of blood, proving what it does is crazy easy.

Even if he wasn't aware, it would get Hope off the hook, and then the rest of the support group and Jessica's own testimony could bring the full fear of the jury on the guy, they'd hang him just out of the possibilty.

>>79138539
>Plus the method by which it's been suggested they prove he has powers is illegal in and of itself meaning that it's inadmissible as evidence

Extenuating circumstances(in which case that there was no other possible way to obtain this evidence) would allow them to re-test him for the virus and then continue on that way, with the knowledge that yes, the others would be tried for their actions though almost certainly they would have gotten off on light charges.

>And the method suggested hinges entirely on them isolating the virus, exposing a test subject to it, and then Killgrave controlling the test subject

Why the fuck would you ever need Killgrave to control them? You have the virus! You can see where it's going, what it's attaching itself too, what parts of the brain it's attaching to and with proper stimulation what it does. You really think his voice is needed? It's a damn virus.

>It hinges on Killgrave proving their case for them. All he has to do is sit there doing nothing and all they can prove is that he's a medical curiosity.

A medical curiosity with a virus that goes for specific parts of the brain.

And, again, we have ways to stimulate outside effects, he can just rot there in jail all he wants. They don't need him when they have the actual sample, they can fake literally every part of what he is in order to test it.

No, the dumbasses that is our main cast hinged everything on Killgrave proving their case, as if he had shut up with his parents they were fucked. The other method takes him out of the equation entirely and puts the case in the hands of provable science.

>Yeah, it's so great to watch a show about a generic "rough girl with tough life", her equally cliche friends and the most boring and unthreatening antagonist since The Brain Surgeon on Dexter.

>The message is that female showrunners are always a disaster.

If we're talking about females and messages in the show think about this...

Kilgrave's biggest sin it seemed was him trying to be a nice guy for Jessica. Telling her he loved her and trying to win her over. That was played off as much worse than his other evil things, which seemed like they were making him extra, super evil so you wouldn't notice the following:

>Message: See girls any guy who's nice too you is secretly an evil rapist! Especially if he's skinny and dweby looking.

And Trish's not-boyfriend?

>Message: See girls not all guys are to be trusted, they're all just waiting to turn into monsters. No amount of apologies will ever change your mind on this, because you're a girl and fuck listening to reason!

And Luke Cage?

>Message: See girls the "hot" buff guy who you barely talk to is actually the best one. You can tell because we've had multiple females say he's hot and that means he's a good person!

Oh look, their characterization follows their sexual selection preferences to the letter.

The problem with that is that this is the GODDAMN MARVEL UNIVERSE. This is why they had a shared universe. Where the fuck is SHIELD? They keep running tabs on anyone even suspected of having super powers.

But nope, no one will believe this mind controller exists despite a TRAIL of bodies he leaves behind. I mean, nevermind aliens just attacked, Ultron just Ultron'd. These are public enough knowledge to where a mind controller with serious blood around him doesn't seem to far fetched.

They seemed to briefly glance over this fact.

This show just had too many plot holes like that.

>>79138947
I mean, I thought Luke Cage was well done, but you're pretty right about all the white guys in the show being psychopaths or impotent man-children. The fact that no one pointed out that if they had just listened to Simpson from minute one post-mind control, about 2/3rds of the show's fatalities would have been avoided pissed me off to no end.

You don't understand how viruses work, do you? For starters, in order to see that the virus is attacking brain cells they'd need to do a biopsy. Brain biopsies are a highly invasive and risky procedure that would only prove the presence of the virus in brain tissue. In order to do what you're talking about, you'd need Killgrave actively mindcontrolling someone while you're running brain imaging scans on that person. Again, unless Killgrave is actively aiding you in proving he has powers, all you have is a bunch of claims that can't be proven and a guy who you've kidnapped and assaulted.

>You don't understand how viruses work, do you?

Neither do you if you don't know we can actually dye the things. The procedure you are describing is only used when you don't know what is inside of someone, and need to find it that way. In this case, they have the virus BEFORE the injection and before it enters into the bloodstream, a simple radiation dye and you can literally track the damn thing as it goes through the blood. Your method is only if the virus is already in there and it's too late to alter it.

> It hinges on Killgrave proving their case for them. All he has to do is sit there doing nothing and all they can prove is that he's a medical curiosity.

Again, it is very easy to simulate anything Killgrave can do, literally all of it, you don't need him there at all.

>Again, unless Killgrave is actively aiding you in proving he has powers, all you have is a bunch of claims that can't be proven and a guy who you've kidnapped and assaulted.

Again, opposite. The scientists are the ones who are proving that yes, there's a virus, it's going to these places in the brain, and with ____stimulation it does ____. And we have a huge list of people who can describe it's symptoms. And we can prove that this man is ALSO the man who slept with the woman who she says mind controlled her.

Or, if you're the dumbass heroes.

I've said it before, but holy fuck they should have left that ambiguous. It makes everything they do seem so forced and fake and not natural at all, that they had to do this simply because they needed X thing to happen because otherwise the show is over. It wouldn't have been so bad if the method they were trying at least made sense, but why did they think the audience would accept "Sees it happen on camera when the guy is trapped and in terrible conditions means she's right" in a court of law, and not think about just testing the guy for a brand new virus his parents, who are scientists, can easily explain. It works so much better if they just have the scientists say a line like

>"I don't know if the treatment did this to him, if it gave him this power or if it woke up something inside of him that had it all along."

At least that way there's some parallels with Jessica and they're not sure.

>>79138887
See the thing you don't seem to understand is that most people have lots of viruses and bacteria in their system at any given time that have no apparent effect. It's a HUGE leap to prove a virus that just sits in the brain causes mind control, and it isn't the kind of thing that could be proven in any short amount of time. Additionally, how do you detect that the virus attaches to certain parts of the brain in the first place? Multiple aggressive biopsies of their grey matter? Infect someone then dissect their brain? Neither would show it actively controlling the brain either, because it only works when Killgrave makes someone do something. How would you even keep him in jail while you prove this. What charges? "He's like the devil, he asked me to do bad stuff and I HAD to" would not be the kind of thing that would get him locked up indefinitely while all this testing went on.

>See the thing you don't seem to understand is that most people have lots of viruses and bacteria in their system at any given time that have no apparent effect

Yes, but they don't affect very specific parts of the brain, and they certainly don't leave a laundry list of people who describe very specific circumstances and can be proven to be emitted and airborn.

> It's a HUGE leap to prove a virus that just sits in the brain causes mind control,

Unless they have a scientist pair who can explain to them what it is and how it works and a bunch of people who can explain the symptoms, you mean.

> and it isn't the kind of thing that could be proven in any short amount of time.

It absolutely could, you're dead wrong on that one.

> Additionally, how do you detect that the virus attaches to certain parts of the brain in the first place?

Tracers can see it. It would literally, not figuratively, glow when you used it with an MRI. You would see it glow, and since smart people know what parts of the brain are what, they could probably put it together.

> Multiple aggressive biopsies of their grey matter?

Seriously, let go of the biopsies, they're not needed when you can put a damn tracer on the thing before you put it in someone. It would be dumb for a scientist to go that far.

> Infect someone then dissect their brain?

What are you not getting?
>Stain virus with tracer
>Stick it in subject

>Oh hey, look at this comprehensive map of exactly what parts this thing is attaching itself to we now have, and how long it stays there.

> How would you even keep him in jail while you prove this.

Scientist parents give testimony to what he's capable of. Witnesses/victims come forward to corroborate it. Examination takes place. Scientists are confirmed. Done. That's it, they can prove it from there.

>>79141399

And you know what? You know what the absolute worst case scenario here is? You keep hinging on "Well, Killgrave would have to command it", trying to ignore the other stuff. But here's what the real worst case scenario is

>We have a scientist pair describing your virus, a conformation MRI that said virus is in these parts of the brain that would be needed for completely control, witness testimony that it worked this way for them, and we can confirm you, specifically, were sexually active with a woman who claims that you mind controlled her. However, all that evidence isn't enough for us, so we have kept you in an isolated room, and are giving you a chance to prove you are innocent. Just tell our volunteer officer, who we have confirmed is infected by your virus you are emitting, to slap himself in the face, and if nothing happens, hooray!... Tell him to do it.... go on, one command, and you go free... no? Huh, that's odd. He's got assurances that he can go free despite all this evidence, and he's not doing it. Well! We can't call him suspicious for that, because fifth amendment, however, there is a mountain of evidence right over here and oh hai Shield.

And that, remember, is worst case scenario.

They went with "Make him tell his parents to kill themselves and catch it on camera, which is proof."

That's not what Extenuating Circumstances means. Extenuating circumstance so far don't include desperation.

Jessica's test would have been admissible even if she went to jail for it because she wasn't a cop and wasn't up up to it by the cops or DA.

(Same as a lawyer turning on their client without prompting would be disbarred, sued, and potentially go to jail but the evidence would be admissible)

They also have to prove he can control the virus and use it to control other people and then prove that he DID use it.

That would be the easy part, the eyewitness testimonies of Jessica and Hope alone would be plenty, but a dozen other people stepped forwards to talk about it. A dozen testimonies saying 'He knew exactly what he was doing and actually enjoyed doing it' would be pretty substantial, especially as several of them, like the woman who played the violin, had injuries sustained in the action that if he were unaware he would have noticed.

Proving he can control it is fucksimple, they have that on video from when he was a kid. They just point to it when he was being experimented on and call it a day. Then they have that he was aware of it, that he knew he could control it, and plenty of testimonies to say did it. The hard part was just proving it was possible.

You know the problem with all these posts.

Its assumed the prosecutors would humor the defense enough to invent an entire new branch of science. The prosecutors would have the edge in said case simply because of how ridiculous sounding the notion of mind controlling a person is.

Furthermore if they actually start to believe the evidence, then it would be in their best interest to continue to let the girl rot and sic SHIELD on him to maintain order and prevent the entire city from going to hell.
