As reported by ComicBookResources.com, the panel of judges wrote:
“This one part superhero saga, one part neo-noir program asks unpopular questions about power and consent, while constructing vivid and compelling characters. Krysten Ritter helps us to discover the strengths and vulnerability of Jessica, a hard-boiled private detective who has rejected the role of superhero but must still figure out how to overcome the evil that threatens her, her friends and her community.”
Based on the Marvel Comics character created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, Jessica Jones debuted in November to critical acclaim. A 13-episode second season was announced in January.
In addition to Ritter, the first season of Jessica Jones also starred Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor, Wil Traval, Erin Moriarty, Eka Darville, Carrie-Anne Moss, and David Tennant.
Is this a well-earned award? Does the Peabody Award carry any significance? What about the other Netflix show Daredevil?
