Agent Carter. So... Does it strike anyone as odd that the anti-sexist, strong female lead, we're bringing women to the forefront of the genre show relies entirely on having her gigantic tits about to fly out of every outfit?

Wait... she is allowed outfits?
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

In between a constant barrage of bra shots and cocktail dresses that are three sizes too small, yes.

Marvel’s JESSICA JONES Hires Doctor Who!!

David Tennant, the “Doctor Who” vet who has been crisscrossing the Atlantic to star in “Broadchurch” and “Gracepoint,” will soon be stateside again to star as Kilgrave in Netflix’s upcoming “Jessica Jones” series.

Created by Stan Lee and Joe Orlando for “Daredevil” #4, the comic book supervillain Zebediah Killgrave was known as The Purple Man, a fellow who used pheromones to control the minds of others.

“Jessica Jones” will be the second of at least five 13-episode live action Marvel series that will stream on Netflix. The first of those five, “Daredevil,” dumps onto the service April 10. Other Marvel series turning up on Netflix in the near future are “Luke Cage” (following the adventures of Jones’ superhero romantic interest), “Iron Fist” and “The Defenders” (a series that will team Jones, Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist).

Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote all the "Twilight" movies and many episodes of "Dexter," serves as "Jessica Jones" showrunner.

Played by Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad," "Don't Trust The Bitch"), Jones is a former superhero who goes into business as a private detective. “Jessica Jones” will be set in the same onscreen Marvel universe that houses Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson, Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner, Robert Downey’s Tony Stark, Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym, Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, James Spader’s Ultron, etc. etc. etc.

I'm just glad to see superhero TV get a crack at being dark. They can show tits, say fuck, and blow heads off on Netflix.

Gotham finally got it right with their latest episode -- where the villain is the Scarecrow's father and the Scarecrow is roughly Bruce Wayne's age.

With some of the baddies, I keep wondering how they're going to explain it when Bruce becomes Batman in, what, 20 years and all these bad guys are still around and in business.

Okay...

So we have The Riddler, who's in his mid to late 20s. Falcone is in his late 50s, early 60s.

Catwoman is okay -- but she's about five years older than Bruce.

In the end, it probably doesn't matter because they'll just Smallville the whole thing and Bruce Wayne will become Batman in the series finale.

I'm debating a Gotham thread... Scarecrow's two-part origin story was pretty awesome. Bruce is manning up, Sean Pertwee is getting out of his butler suit, and the Penguin is on the rise.

I am the only other person watching this show besides the AV Club guy getting paid to watch it.
