    Oh, most definitely. Even if the show had no violence at all, its stories and themes are dark enough that it would almost certainly earn an R/TV-MA/"mature" rating anyway.

    To be honest, the Sex scenes are no worse than what comes on a Telenovela at 8PM. The only difference is that they lack the "romantic passion" of a soap opera. Candles, slow movements, over dramatic scenery. Honestly, I don't see anything R rated in Jessica Jones. Certainly not PG. Which makes me wonder, how can Univision and Telemundo get away with that stuff?

    You're right, but there are mentions of a LOT darker motives and actions.

    Dark motives and themes making it R rated says a lot about the quality of the show. Doesn't need gratuitous nudity, sex, or violence to make it adult.

    ^ That is what I was getting at when I said earlier that even with no gore, the show would still rank an R (or TV-MA, depending on where you are).

    So I remember a scene where Jessica placed the date of the "bus accident" into a computer at a hospital, it was January 2015. I forgot how long it was between that and episode 1...I kinda want to know when this show and Daredevil are supposed to take place....

    It's not solidly nailed down. The date of the bus accident was Jan 20 2014, and the firmest dating we get for current events is that that happened 'like a year ago.'

    Factoring in:
    - the Jan 20 2014 date being approximately a year prior
    - the first few episodes of JJ had snow on the ground
    - while the later ones featured people outside comfortably in longsleeve shirts
    - Josie's Bar in Daredevil had been owned by her since at least 2010
    - Luke's bar in JJ is the same bar as Josie's, meaning he has taken over since we last saw it in Daredevil
    - certain references in episode 13 referring to Daredevil
    - references to the Battle of New York (Avengers 1)
    - 0 mentions of Sokovia, or the Sokovia Accords (Avengers 2 / Civil War)

    I'm placing JJ season 1 in the late winter/early spring of 2015, closely following or else immediately after Daredevil season 1. Admittedly it's not completely clear, but it's the best I can come up with on the information we have.

    One of the 'guides' in my sig is how I've interpreted the timeline of events in the MCU to date. (Hover mouse over many of the cells in the episode title column to see which part of that episode/film it's referring to)

    OK now I remember, yeah the date said 2014, I guessed the setting to be early 2015. Probably closer to spring given the weather change. Before Sokovia and Ant-Man and during or before the Inhuman fish pill outbreak. All of that was in my mind but I wasn't sure. And um....did you work alone on your spread sheet?

    Yup

    It's really not as much work as it looks like. Taking 30s to add a row here or there when a scene happens in a 42 minute episode / 2h movie, mostly it's just fill-in-the-blanks, once the table is in place

    I don't like making spread sheets >.>


    I read somewhere that there is a newspaper in episode 8 of Daredevil with a date in September...Can't remember where exactly.

    I feel dirty, like I've cheated at a game or something watching an entire series inside a week is a bit different to once a wee for 3 months), watched two or three episodes a night and got through it in a few days, quiet good, especially the doctor playing evil, felt very bookended though, as if this is the one series that won't get a second go.

    Nice to see Marvel a bit less kid-like though.

    I'd hope not. They can't keep bringing Hydra back as a source for every single earth-based villain.
