  1. Marvel’s Jessica Jones
    Starring:

This Netflix original chronicles the life of one of the darker Marvel characters, the mysterious Jessica Jones. When a tragedy puts the end to her short-lived career as a superhero, Jessica settles in New York City and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, which seems to be called into cases involving people who have special abilities. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica wants to do good, but her primary interest isn’t in saving the world, it’s saving her apartment and getting through each day. Based on a graphic novel intended for adults, this is not a superhero story for the kids.

Eight strangers around the globe find themselves connected — first by a violent vision, then by their shared ability to connect with one another’s thoughts and actions, and finally by the urgent need to find out what happened and why. Their need to know goes beyond simple curiosity — as they pursue answers, a mysterious organization hunts them down, intent on destroying them. The intense thriller is the first foray into television (or, more accurately, Netflix) for renowned filmmakers Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski (“The Matrix Reloaded”), who created the series with J. Michael Straczynski (“Thor”). The international cast includes veteran actors known to U.S. audiences, like Daryl Hannah (“Kill Bill”) and Naveen Andrews (“Lost”), and others well-known in their home countries, like German actor Max Riemelt and Doona Bae of South Korea. In keeping with the global premise of the series, shooting takes place all over the world, including London, Reykjavik, Nairobi and Mumbai.

Rescued after 15 years in a cult, Kimmy Schmidt decides to reclaim her life by venturing to New York, where she experiences everyday life with wide-eyed enthusiasm. On a whim, she rents a room from Titus, a gay wannabe Broadway actor, who makes ends meet as a street performer in Times Square. The unlikely pair find they’re well-suited to help each other out, with Titus reintroducing Kimmy to modern life, and her providing him with the inspiration that you should never give up. Together they’ll make it through whatever life throws at them.

    New Series Release: ‘Surface’ On Apple TV+

    If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, the newest show on Apple TV+ is a must-see, following the life of a woman who has completely lost her memory after a supposed “suicide attempt,” and is attempting to piece her life back together.

    How The Bachelorette Is Managing Two Leading Women So Far

    The beginning of every new season of Bachelor franchise shows always start with the host’s voice announcing, “this is the most dramatic season yet,” and viewers are wondering if this may actually be the case for the currently airing season of the Bachelorette, including not one, but two women who are both the bachelorettes. Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia, both former finalists on Clayton’s season of the Bachelor, are best friends and began this journey extremely enthusiastic to have the other there by their side, not expressing too much worry about eventually falling in love with the same man. Considering the fact that 32 men walked out of the limos on night one, Gabby and Rachel didn’t seem to encounter many issues in the first two episodes, when they collectively gave roses to the men they wanted to keep, rather than handing out individual roses that were specifically from one of them. However, episode three is where problems began to arise on the “two bachelorettes” front.
