Like many devotees of great comics and great TV, I sat down today to begin viewing Season 2 of Jessica Jones on Netflix. The first season was my favorite Netflix show to date (thanks in no small part to my love and appreciation for Alias, the Brian Michael Bendis/Michael Gaydos comic series upon which it was based).
I loved the first episode and how the writers took the Golden Age concept of speedster hero the Whizzer and adapted him for Jessica’s gritty, oddball world.
I always watch all of the end credits for each episode, in part to see what actors played certain roles, but also to see the customary note of appreciation for the comics writers and artists whose past work was adapted in some way for the show as well.
As I saw the “Special Thanks” credit for the first episode — “AKA Start at the Beginning” — I was immediately struck by a glaring typo…
Getting someone’s name wrong is always unfortunate, though it happens. I’d suggest getting the name wrong of the best-known creator on the list — even outside of the comics industry — makes for a particularly embarrassing gaffe. The amazing thing is they spelled “Mazzucchelli” right but not “Frank.”
Hopefully, Netflix and Marvel TV can correct it in short order.
Addendum: Well, at least they got it right in the credits for the second episode.
