Krysten Ritter is known for many major roles: She was Jane Margolis in the prestige show “Breaking Bad,” and, of course, she played Jessica Jones as part of Marvel’s slate of Netflix shows. However, the lesser known part many of her biggest fans adore the most is that of Chloe, the titular b— who lives in apartment 23.
“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” has a simple plot: A young woman named June (Dreama Walker) is tricked into becoming the roommate of Chloe (Ritter). Because June is struggling with her life both personally and professionally, she finds herself trapped in her living situation as Chloe maliciously antagonizes June for her own, personal amusement.
If you think about it for more than a couple of seconds, you’ll realize that the basic premises of “Don’t Trust the B—-” and “Nightbooks” are effectively identical. Both involve Ritter trapping an innocent in an apartment and both involve her enjoying the suffering of said innocent.
However, if that was all that connected these two properties, we wouldn’t have much to discuss.
