The Punisher Season 2 Episodes 1-5
« on: January 18, 2019, 08:59:25 AM »
The first episode sets things up without explaining too much.  At first I was afraid they were going with a slow burn but they've ramped up the action quite a bit.

Episode 2 now.  I'm not feeling the main bad guy at the moment.  He seems like the typical Bible-quoting crazy hitman guy that has appeared in so many shows and movies.  I liked the nod to No Country For Old Men, though.

Episode 3 plays like Assault on Precinct 13.  Every episode so far has a nice action sequence.  Luke Cage, Daredevil, and even Iron Fist have had better action sequences these past few seasons and it seems Punisher is following suit.

On episode 7 and Liking this season so far but past few episodes  feel like it’s spinning its wheels right now. lost a little of the momentum

The jigsaw story is meh so far for me

You can start a separate thread for episodes 6-9.

Episode 4 is a bit of a breather episode but episode 5 has a badass fightscene in a gym.  The storyline isn't quite as strong as last season but I feel the fights are better.  Also, I'm waiting for when Russo kills his psychiatrist.

The fights are really good, it's delightfully brutal, well-acted, well written etc and I am enjoying it for what it is.

It really doesn't feel anything like The Punisher though. I know some people have said that about Bernthal Punisher before, but I thought Punisher s1 and especially DD s2 had the right vibe for an early, angry, pre-full war Punisher. Here (or up to the end of ep 5 at least), he's just a guy who happens to be called Frank Castle.


Cheers.

I've never been a fan of comics Punisher, so I like the change here. He's actually someone I care about and cam invest in. Not just some robot, which is sometimes how the comics come off to me.

At the start of the show, a black, handicapped, transexual lesbian tells Frank he is exhibiting toxic masculinity, so he stops shooting people.  True story.

It's been a problem recently for some people.

But yeah, that totally happens.  He spends the rest of the season checking his privilege.
