Jessica Jones tells the story of a former female superhero, played by Krysten Ritter, who quits the cape game when something awful happens and decides to try her hand at being a private detective for Avenger types. It’s all powerful females, mature sexuality and handsome male leads. A winner, basically.
Alicia Florrick / The Good Wife
If you haven’t yet seen, Alicia Florrick returns to work after a scandal lands her politician husband in prison. Season seven may be the last in the series (sniff), but the first six seasons make for a riveting watch. We won’t say any more, other than you will love this.

If anyone is going to sit on Ryan Gosling’s face, it’s going to be me
