Marvel’s Jessica Jones doesn’t give a damn about her reputation in new teaser

Marvel's Jessica Jones - Nightcap - Only on Netflix [HD]
The success of Marvel’s Daredevil has certainly set a high bar for Jessica Jones, the second Netflix series set in Marvel’s cinematic universe, but the latest teaser for the upcoming show makes it clear that its title character doesn’t really care about our expectations.

In the new preview of Jessica Jones released by Marvel Entertainment and Netflix, Krysten Ritter’s title character finds herself in need of a little music and a stiff drink in the aftermath of a brutal bar fight. That she chooses Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation” as her drinking music — and steps over the battered bodies of several bar patrons to get to the aforementioned drink — serves as a not-too-subtle reminder that she’s not your typical superhero.

Premiering next month on the streaming service, Jessica Jones casts Ritter as a former superhero whose career is cut short by tragedy. Caught in a downward spiral and fighting inner demons that are more dangerous than most supervillains, she becomes a detective specializing in cases that involve people who themselves have superhuman abilities.

Jessica Jones is the second of four live-action Netflix series set in Marvel’s cinematic universe that will culminate in a limited series that brings all four shows together in a crossover event. The four-part (or five-part, including the crossover) experiment kicked off with Daredevil back in April, and continues with Jessica Jones next month, then to be followed by Luke Cage and Iron Fist next year, before all four title characters come together in The Defenders.

Along with Ritter, the cast of Jessica Jones includes Doctor Who alum David Tennant as Kilgrave, Halo: Nightfall actor Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Red Dog actress Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker, as well as Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), Eka Darville (Power Rangers R.P.M.), and Erin Moriarty (The Kings of Summer).

Jessica Jones will premiere November 20, 2015, on Netflix at 12:01 am PT.

Why Plex is such a powerhouse and what that means for you
Plex used on all devices, mobile, laptop, more

One of the worst things that's happened due to the modern streaming wars, and with so many services, is that, as an active subscriber to many of these platforms, you have to bounce around between the different apps to browse content or watch it. It's a highly fragmented experience that can be frustrating, especially when you don't know what you want to watch in the first place. You might start with Netflix, browsing movies and shows available, then hop over to Hulu or something else when you can't find anything interesting. Wouldn't it be so much better if a one-stop-shop or hub put you in control of a single, unified library? Something like this already exists, and it's called Plex.

If you've never heard of it before, or if you have heard of it and just never had the chance to use it, listen up because Plex is an absolute media powerhouse that everyone should try, at the very least. It will put you in full control of your media and completely transform your modern entertainment experience. You won't have to hop between watchlists on various platforms like Prime Video, Paramount+, or Max. Instead, it's all accessed through Plex, and then you can browse from a central platform. Even better, once you add your streaming apps through Plex, it will allow you to create a universal watchlist regardless of where the titles are available and provide recommendations across your preferred streaming apps -- essentially doing all of the legwork for you. It's a fantastic way to discover new content that's tailored to your interests. But there's so much more to Plex, making it a powerful entertainment tool. You can find and interact with your friends on Plex, and discover and watch new content together. You'll get film, actor, and behind-the-scenes facts for every piece of content. You can even bring your own custom media, but we'll get to that.

When it comes to streaming platforms, Netflix is one of the best services out there. Not only does the pioneering service give you access to thousands of movies and TV shows, but many Netflix plans will allow you to tap into 4K HDR content, on top of giving you support for multiple screens and devices.

Whatever your reason may be, when it comes time to log out of your Netflix account on a smart TV or streaming device, this step-by-step guide will walk you through the process.

Ends tonight: Save $200 on this Samsung 55-inch QLED 4K TV

If you're looking for the best Samsung TV deals, this deal from Best Buy lets you grab this 55-inch Q70C  for just $800 rather than the usual $1,000. While that may still feel rather expensive, the Q70C is a great mid-to-high-end Samsung TV packed with many great features. That said, the deal is ending tonight, so if you like what you see, grab it before it expires.

Why you should buy the 55-inch Samsung Q70C QLED 4K TV
So, what makes the Q70C special? Well, for starters, it has a QLED panel that recreates colors very vividly without losing brightness, an issue that traditional LED panels tend to have. It's also helped a bit with its Dual-LED backlighting for extra brightness, so you can push the contrast and color reproduction pretty far. It also comes with Samsung's proprietary Quantum HDR, which is offset by the fact that it's missing HLG support, which most sports broadcasters use, so you'll be missing out on that front if you enjoy watching many sports.
