Word of the Nerd Jessica Jones Review


Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 13 was narrated by Fryda Wolff, as with the rest of the series so far. I honestly think that this series would not have been the same without her. She really does bring Jess’ story to life—as well as the characters who find themselves revolving around her.

It’s worth noting that there are several characters with lines in this episode, all conversing with one another. Wolff kept up with all of that while keeping the characters distinct. In fact, it was a lot of fun listening to them all interact in such a way.

My favorite part of the audio for this week has to be how much emotion she was able to infuse into her voice. Sam’s confusion, Jessica’s complex cocktail of emotions she was going through. All of it. It really brought the scenes to life.

Black Lives Matter

In solidarity with the African American community and Black victims of police brutality, I have made a financial contribution to the NAACP. If you would like to donate, here is Rolling Stone’s list of “Resources for Those Seeking to Help Anti-Police Brutality Protestors,” broken down by location.

Consider doing what you can, however you can, with the resources and privileges available to you. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, take precautions when protesting: Wear a mask and/or face shield and eye protection, attempt distancing, and use hand sanitizer. Bring first aid. Learn about tear gas. Record everything.
