One, keep denying it. Or two, do something about it.

++ Another trailer for S2 of Jessica Jones, it's mostly some footage from the first season with snippets of the second, but still effective in getting you absolutely hyped for it nonetheless. It is both so close yet so far away.

I just want to say, one of the things I absolutely love about Jessica Jones as a whole (aside from everything) is her just being angry. I feel like whenever a woman is allowed to be angry in mainstream media it is often subdued and not handled that well in the writing. Jessica, even after confronting and defeating her abuser, is still suffering from PTSD from that, she is still having a hard time dealing with the horrible things that she has dealt with throughout her life, and she isn't going to let someone tell her to "stop being angry" and that she should just "move on". Hell, she would probably get even angrier if someone tries to tell her how to feel and end up punching them as a result. And I just love how she is so unadulterated in her fury. Like, I want her to heal from her wounds and to be okay which will be a gradual progression throughout the series for sure and I'm looking forward to seeing that character development, but it's still just so refreshing to see a woman character to just be angry and not apologize for it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm happy that the showrunner isn't subduing her anger just because Kilgrave is gone. I remember after the announcement that there was going to be a second season the showrunner mentioned that Jessica will still be dealing with her PTSD, which was not only a relief but it also makes narrative sense. Even in the series pilot when Jessica thought Kilgrave was gone the first time (before realizing that he wasn't) she was suffering flashbacks and drinking to forget, and the second season is still going to be dealing with everything she went through on top of reliving the traumatic car crash that killed her family and what happened to her.

I just really love Jessica Jones, both the show and the character. I honestly can't wait for the second season, which will feature not only all women directors, it will also premiere on International Women's Day. How dope is that?

++ Doctor Who is getting a brand new logo and it is so gorgeous. I really love it.

++ One Day At A Time is a Netflix half-hour sitcom series that has two seasons so far, but the fear of it getting cancelled has been noticeable that the showrunner has urged fans and newcomers alike to watch at least four episodes of the show to let Netflix know that it deserves to be renewed. This was announced a while ago and idk if it'll still make an difference, but it never hurts to try!

I haven't watched the show myself just yet, but I have heard a lot of great things about it, particularly the inclusion of LGBT represenation, which has been the biggest draw for many people (this scene especially has been making the rounds lately, getting even more people invested). Alongside being a heartwarming show about family, and a Latino family at that, it also tackles heavy and serious topics, which according to others is handled very well for episodes that are only half an hour long. I've only seen clips from it and I will eventually find the time to watch this show, but I hope it does end up getting renewed because it is rare to find sitcoms that tackle serious issues and being aware of the social climate while still being genuinely funny. And apparently, because it's on Netflix, it's allowed to go to places that sitcoms or even most dramas on national television aren't able to, which is pretty awesome.
