Jessica Jones, Netflix Original
Based on the Marvel Comics series, Jessica Jones has been admired for its neo-noir feel and applauded for its heads-on engagement with trauma and recovery (including post-traumatic stress disorder). Its eponymous heroine (played by Krysten Ritter) has left the superhero game and works as a private investigator, but the shady figures of her murky New York all have formidable superhuman powers of their own. Darkly self-aware, the show puts a truly feminist superhero front and center, where she belongs.
