Boxset Monday: Marvel’s Jessica Jones (season 3) (Netflix)

Available on Netflix

And so it ends. I’m not talking only about Marvel’s Jessica Jones, which burst onto the scene just a few years ago with such a deft deconstruction of the entire superhero genre and its male power fantasies.

No, this final season – for the show was cancelled before the third season was even released – is also the end of that bold collaboration between Marvel and Netflix intended to give us proper grown-up superheroes and quality Netflix programming that also linked up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The collective swan-songs of these ‘Defenders‘ have swerved between the sublime and the turgid. Blind catholic vigilante Daredevil went in a frequently perfect final season. Meanwhile, bulletproof defender of African-American society and culture Luke Cage disappeared in a fun-filled, politically relevant concluding season.

Unfortunately, despite a cracking ending, my former favourite – the rich, cultural-appropriating, martial arts human weapon Iron Fist – went out with a whimper in an almost entirely severely disappointing second season.

Now it’s the turn of the last ‘defender’ – super-strong, super-unmotivated private detective Jessica Jones. But will she deliver a knock-out punch like Daredevil or sulk in a corner like Iron Fist?

Spoilers and the like after the jump, but hopefully not too many.

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Bellevue and Advokaten (The Lawyer)

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

Not a lot of acquisitions this week. The biggie is Amazon’s bulk purchase of 75 Russian films and TV series, although when they’ll end up becoming available is anyone’s guess, as a few of those listed were already available. Plus Amazon never tells anyone.

Otherwise, a couple of show got picked up and had premiere dates: CBC (Canada)’s Bellevue and Viaplay (Sweden)’s most viewed show ever Advokaten (The Lawyer).
