Brief Synopsis:
Haunted by a tragedy that broke her world apart, Jessica Jones settles in Hell's Kitchen, New York City, and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations. She discovers that the source her trauma, a mind-controlling sociopath named Kilgrave, has cheated death. She uses her abilities, super and otherwise to find him before he can hurt anyone else.
Intention:
This rendition of Jessica Jones: The Complete First Season is intended to enhance the re-watching experience of the show and allow you to finish it in a single sitting. The original season is nearly a masterpiece, but filled with a lot side-plots that eventually fold into the grander plan by the end of the season. This is meant to focus on the main conflict so that this underappreciated gem can join your MCU marathon.

An impressive project, and definitely a novel experience to watch the core plot of the first season of Jessica Jones as if it were a feature film.
However, there are some serious issues with the edit, that become increasingly apparent as the season progresses. Some of the issues can be solved fairly easily with more careful transitions, but others are more difficult (and perhaps unsolvable due to the source material.
I listed several of the issues I found on the forum.
