    Surprised this doesn't exist yet. Vote and express your opinion.

    I liked both a lot. But Daredevil wins by a nose.

    You really should have included "too close to call".

    Daredevil wins by a hair(a very small centimeter long hair). JJ was an amazing follow up. But DD just slightly tops it with far better fight scenes. That's the only thing that gives it the edge. Other than that they're pretty much tied.

    I’ve yet to finish DD. But based on what I’ve seen, the fight choreography is very impressive.

    In JJ, there seemed to be less emphasis placed on action set pieces. So the occasional display of superpowers was more likely to be a means to a particular end - rather than some standalone “spectacle.” IOW, I don’t think JJ tried - but failed - to be like DD; its focus was totally different.

    Yeah, except for the fight scenes, they're on the same level. I refuse to take part in this divisive debate. I do wish that JJ had given a bit more love to the fight scenes, that really would have been awesome.

    I loved DD. I really liked JJ.

    Jessica Jones had moments where I felt this is getting a little silly (spoilers, but if you're VOTING FOE EITHER SHOW, you must have watched both of them to be bothered with this thread...)

    [blackout]Such as everytime the heroes captured Kilgrave only to keep losing him, that started to get silly, and turning Simpson completely into a psychopath when he was very likable...I was reminded of the worst of True Blood, but to a far more forgiving degree, that these weren't major offenses to me[/blackout].

    Yet Daredevil was just perfection. DD 10/10, JJ 8/10 IMO

    I agree with the con WolfCypher mentioned.

    I'll give the edge to Daredevil.

    I liked JJ, but I loved Daredevil. Really DD is just my kind of show, I immediately wanted to rewatch it over and over. JJ I only watch once, I enjoyed but don't have that drive to rewatch it. They're both on the top end of television, and choosing between just comes to your own personal taste. DD is much more my type of show.

    I personally enjoyed DD more, but I think objectively speaking, JJ was an overall stronger show and more ambitious show based on the kinds of heavy subject material it tackled, it's overarching story and how it handled all 13 episodes. It's such an intimate and character driven show that I can understand if some people were turned off by the lack of flair that Daredevil provided in spades, but at the same time, I just can't get over how DD ended on a sour note whereas JJ just keeps managed to finish strongly.

    That being said, both shows rocked. Can't wait for Luke Cage and DD Season 2.

    Jessica Jones for me. Daredevil kick-punched his way to solving his problems. I liked that Jessica used investigation and tried to use the law first. I like that she debated the merits of using Kilgrave as a force for good before deciding he was irredeemable. I like that the characters were fallible and didn't always make the 100% correct choice every time they had a decision. With the emotions involved it would have been weird if everyone was highly rational and logical all the time.

    Can we all just stop to appreciate for a second how appropriately SHH color coded the poll?

    Both were amazing in all kinds of ways, but Jessica Jones gave me more of what I wanted.

    Hard to say. Both are on par as far as acting, drama, and character development. But while DD has better fight scenes, JJ has more "WTF!!!!" moments.

    DD for me appeals to what I specifically want from a Marvel superhero show, but JJ gave me so many things that I didn't know I wanted from a superhero show. The thing that edges out DD as the winner for me was the fighting was much more well done. The few fights in JJ were just not at a level I expected and a few come off as cheesy and kind of took me out of it.

    Yup one of the very few issues I had with JJ was most of the fighting. KR just didn't sell it well enough for me and MC was just too stiff I thought.

    Jessica Jones gets it for me. But barely.
    I found it was a much more intimate story, which made it far more tense and disturbing most of time time.

    I also disagree with a lot of what people are saying about fight scenes. I think they were exactly what they should have been. Jessica isn't a trained fighter. She ends up pushing and throwing people around a bunch, because all she can do.

    Daredevil had fight choreography, because it had ninjas. Was it more elaborate? hell yeah. But it wouldn't have fit Jessica's character.

    Gotta go with DD over JJ. I liked JJ but I thoroughly loved DD and its world. Kilgrave wasnt as interesting to me as Kingpin either.
