Top 8 Jessica Jones Scenes

Spoiler alert! Do not continue reading if you haven’t seen the season finale of Jessica Jones or if you plan to do so. You have been warned.

The Jessica Jones TV series, which is currently streaming on Netflix, has received a lot of praise, being compared to Daredevil. We have come up with a list of the best Jessica Jones scenes from the first season. Take a look.

1. Leads to the Next Season

The season finale saw Jessica Jones defeating Kilgrave, who was starting to turn quite purple before she was done with him. After doing her job, Jessica returns home, only to find her inbox full of numerous voicemails. Even though there are many other loose ends the show needs to address, the start of the Alias Investigations surely points her into the direction of doing more heroic deeds from now on. It is also the best way to end the season and make fans speculate as to what will come next.

2. That Action Scene

The battle between the two ranks as one of the best Jessica Jones scenes.

While Jessica Jones stands as a compelling series, it wouldn’t be complete with some fighting scenes. The moment fans have been waiting for came when Luke Cage was controlled by Kilgrave and turned against Jessica, his old flame. The battle that ensued was truly spectacular, as the two completely devastated the decor. This can also be considered a preview of the new series which will premiere next year on Netflix, revolving around the character of Luke Cage.

3. Hellcat’s Action Scenes

Despite wearing no superhero costume or giving any hints that she may turn into Hellcat soon, Trish Walker did throw a good show. First of all, she had a big part to play in the mission to kill Kilgrave. Secondly, Trish had amazing action scene when she took down Will Simpson (Nuke).

As the season finale showed her starting another investigation, we can only hope that she, among with other characters, will put on her mask and her costume and fight crime in style. That remains to be seen in the next season though.

4. The Night Nurse

The cameo by the Night Nurse is definitely among the best Jessica Jones scenes.

Even though fans were disappointed by the fact that Daredevil didn’t appear, the show gave them a treat in the cameo of Claire Temple. Her role in this story was to provide medical assistance for Luke Cage. The two seemed to feel connected in some way or another, which will be interesting to follow since Claire Temple is also set up to appear in the Luke Cage TV series. The character also did explain her motives for helping Luke and Jessica in the series finale.

5. The Confrontation at the Police Station

Even though we meet Kilgrave early on through a series of flashbacks and disturbing scenes, Jessica only meets with him at a police station. After we find out the history between the two, we could only look forward to the first confrontation between the characters. However, in this scene Kilgrave commanded the police officers to point their gun towards each other while proclaiming his love for Jessica, as well as his intent to win her. Even if the villain is clearly deranged, one cannot admire his cleverness, and this scene had us watching from the edge of our seats.

6. The Confession
The top 8 Jessica Jones scenes includes the moment she confessed her crime.

A heartbreaking moment in the series was when Jessica admitted she killed Luke Cage’s wife. When Kilgrave was controlling her, she punched the woman in the chest, instantly killing her. Guilt-ridden, she is forced to tell Luke Cage when he went after another man he suspected for killing his wife. The very emotional scene ended with the grieving Luke punching a bus instead of Jessica, and leaving the series for the moment.

7.  The Introduction of Luke Cage

Even though the TV series Jessica Jones seems to have diminished powers compared to the original superhero, she still kicks ass in various action scenes. One of these is when she joins Luke Cage in a bar and they fight together. The scene is beautifully made, highlighting their own specific powers. This was also the perfect introduction for Luke Cage, the guy with unbreakable skin.

8. The Origins of the Purple Man

The change of the origins of the Purple Man can be considered one of the best Jessica Jones scenes.

The story of the Purple Man in this TV series has been changed from the original, since it couldn’t really work out. In the comic books, the villain used to be a spy from the Soviet Union. Later on, while on a mission on an American base he stole experimental nerve gas and thus gained his superpowers. In the Jessica Jones series, he is much more of a victim, having been experimented on by his parents when he was a child. The twist of the story came as a great surprise, as no one could have expected that he had been a sociopath from the very beginning and his parents were only trying to save him.

Top 7 Simpsons Gags You Missed

The Simpsons is truly the longest sitcom in the United States, with 27 seasons spanning over 26 years and almost 600 episodes. The witty writers of the series have not only extraordinary talent in comedy, but also in subtly including hints towards various aspects, from politics to history or other famous works.

We have compiled a list of the top 7 Simpsons gags you missed, unless you were precisely looking for them.

1. John Swartzwelder

 John Swartzwelder's appearances are part of the top 7 Simpsons gags you missed.

You can spot the sign near the right corner of the image.

John Swartzwelder is the name of the most famous writer of The Simpsons. However, he is a very private person, being rarely seen in public. This fact has also led many fans to believe that the name was made up in order to keep the real writer anonymous. As a result, the other writers included hints to Swartzwelder in some episodes. For instance, the writer appears as a paranoid man at a mental facility in the “Hurricane Neddy” episode.

2. Jean Valjean

Here is a reference to Les Miserables.

The number on Skinner’s old helmet is the same as Valjean’s prisoner number.

When Seymour Skinner, the school principal, revealed his true identity, we have all seen the uncanny resemblance with the life of Jean Valjean from Les Miserables, as they both took on different identities. However, there was an earlier hint in a previous episode when Skinner found his POW helmet with the number 24601. Jean Valjean had the same prisoner number.

3. Johnny Carson

Homer's impersonation has a spot in the top 7 Simpsons gags you missed.

Homer impersonated Johnny Carson while eating prized potato chips.

There is this episode when Homer eats some prized potato chips which look like famous people. This is a reference to one of The Tonight Show episodes with Johnny Carson from the 1980s. In the show, the guest was a woman who presented a series of potato chips shaped like animals, numbers and so on. When she turned around for a moment, Carson took one chip from another bowl and loudly ate it, making the audience laugh and the woman watch in shock.

4. V.P Dan Quayle

There are hidden political references in The Simpsons.

You can spot the name of the vice president on the shredded paper.

The Simpsons series was heavily criticised by President Bush and his wife. The writers of the series responded in style, by including them in some episodes. However, they also included a reference to Dan Quayle, the Vice-President of the Bush administration in order to remind their viewers of their incompetence. A torn paper with the name of Quayle and the word “embarrassment” can be seen flying around when Bart shredded Bush’s memoirs.

5. Watergate

The top 7 Simpsons gags you missed include the political ones from the Whacking Day episode.

The Whacking Day episode included a lot of references to President Nixon.

During the Whacking Day episode, Bart got home-schooled and started reading history books. Although hidden among the President Nixon jokes, we have also remarked that the author of the book “The Truth About Whacking Day” is Bob Woodward. The Watergate scandal was uncovered by Woodward along with other journalists.

6. Ahoy Hoy

The old phone greeting is one of the top 7 Simpsons gags you missed.

Mr Burns’ greeting has a history.

Mr Burns is definitely a very weird guy, and one of the most well known things he does is answering the phone by saying “ahoy hoy”. This comes from the very first way of saying hello, back when telephones were first invented. It was Thomas Edison who changed it to “hello”. The joke also hints at Mr Burns’ old age.

7. The McBain Movie

McBain is a special character in The Simpsons series.

McBain, played by Rainier Wolfcastle, is a replica of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

You may have seen many appearances of McBain throughout various episodes. However, if we collect all these mini clips and put them in order, we end up with a whole movie. The sequence begins with McBain arguing with the Captain, followed by a bar scene where McBain’s partner is assassinated. The story continues with the protagonist going after Mendoza, the villain. In the end, the hero prevails and defeats the villain.

Top 6 Curious Moments from the Star Wars History

Star Wars is one of the most popular franchises of all time, with six theatrical films which fans have been watching over and over again: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. The seventh movie of the installment, which is highly anticipated, will be released this December. However, if you haven’t thought of making a reservation yet, you might have to wait until next year. This is the magnitude of popularity of Star Wars. In spite of this, there are many fans who want more. For those with curious minds, many have written spin-offs, either as novels or comics. Some of these are official, and some not. And we mustn’t forget the huge fanfiction base this series has.

However we won’t get into that now. We compiled a list of the top 6 curious moments from the Star Wars history. Take a look.

1. The First Sequel

Splinter of the Mind's Eye is part of the top 6 curious moments from the Star Wars history.

At the beginning, no one could tell if Star Wars would become truly successful or not. The director, George Lucas, had to have a plan B, a sequel movie on a lower budget. Thus Alan Dean Foster was hired to write a novel as a sequel. This novel would be later on adapted for the big screen. However, Han Solo was completely cut out, since Harrison Ford didn’t commit at that time for any sequels.

The events of the novel, titled “Splinter of the Mind’s Eye”, happened on just one planet in order to avoid expensive costs for for the movie. Leia and Luke basically end up stranded on this planet which happens to be the place where Darth Vader is setting into motion one of his evil plans. The siblings had all sorts of weird flirty moments, as well as one when Luke slaps Leia. Thankfully, we never saw this on the big screen.

2. The Casino

One of the top 6 curious moments from the Star Wars history is when Luke went to a Casino.

Also during the 1980s, a comic strip about how Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett invented snowboarding was published. But wait, it gets weirder and weirder. What was more surprising was the fact that Luke had the mission to get inside the Casino Royale on the Gambler’s World planet and steal some winnings from the Emperor. At the Casino, Luke gets really into a certain game named “Cosmic Chance”. The game featured a huge ball which had pagan symbols engraved all over it. Luke seems to have a lot of luck with the game and wins a lot of money. However, it becomes quite clear that he used the Force to cheat the game. What a disappointment.

3. The Radio Show

The Star Wars radio show revealed a lot of scenes that were cut from the movies.

As with most of the movies, the Star Wars franchise had a lot of deleted scenes. In the 1980s these special scenes were detailed during a radio show. Along with many funny but necessary scenes, listeners also found out about the true meaning of a certain scene. While Uncle Owen and Luke were buying droids from the Jawas, they left R2-D2 behind and selected R5-D4 and C-3PO. At that moment, R5 exploded out of a sudden, which seems to be a reference to being sold to slavers. The radio show revealed that is was R2 who sabotaged R5, and this has been confirmed by a Star Wars Encyclopedia.

4. The Ewoks’ Lifestyle

The harsh lives of the Ewoks have made it into our top 6 curious moments from the Star Wars history.

“The Adventures of Teebo” is a children’s book about the lives of the Ewoks, the creatures that look like teddy bears but are nothing like them. We find out from the book that they are an oppressed nation on Endor, being constantly chased by some dark hairy monsters riding huge spiders and wielding pitchforks. However, these guys are not the villains. The title belongs to the Duloks, a nastier version of Ewoks, who are trying to eat all the Ewok babies. Not quite a children’s story after all.

5. The Novels

Read the events from Star Wars from the perspective of Luke Skywalker.

A book based on the movies was released in the 1970s, titled “Star Wars – From The Adventures Of Luke Skywalker”. One of the scenes featured in the book is the one where Luke and Ben Kenobi go to Mos Eisley to a tavern where they almost get into a fight with a weird alien. Ben is revealed to be Obi-Wan Kenobi and ends up cutting the guy’s arm with his lightsaber. In the novel however, the scene becomes much more violent, as Obi-Wan also sliced two other persons in half. Afterward, the bartender and his assistants drag the corpses away, as if this happens every day in their local.

6. The Chinese Comics

The first place in the top 6 curious moments from the Star Wars history goes to the Chinese comics.

However, nothing beats the Star Wars comics from China. At the moment of their release, the movies could only be viewed in Hong Kong, and thus many Chinese had to find other ways to experience the franchise. As a result, these comics were born. There is nothing less accurate than this: Chewbacca looks like a chimpanzee and Darth Vader shines in the dark and rides a Triceratops dinosaur. More so, his plan is to attack Kennedy Space Center, because apparently ruling the galaxy is not enough. The Chinese comics surpass any bounds of imagination and can justly be crowned as kings of the top 6 curious moments from the Star Wars history.
