I can't decide if I like it better than DDs01. Also Barnes is just smoother and cooler than Fisk imo. I just wish it was more involved with Netflix MCU. Claire should've patched him up some.

OMG I watched that movie the other day (was on one of the premium channels) and I forgot how incredibly terrible it was. I liked Stevenson as Frank, but the rest, TERRIBLE.

Also, when watching Jigsaw in that movie, I couldn't remember who he reminded me of, then it hit me, Paulie Walnuts from the Sopranos! He acted just like him, the way he talked, his mannerisms, everything. Watch some clips from the Sopranos and watch Jigsaw in that movie.

Seriously though, people want to complain about some liberties this show is taking should look at the liberties the three movies took, no skull emblem, being set in Miami, entire family get killed (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc), comical to downright cringe worthy embarrassing villains, and on and on. People need to be thankful this Punisher is fleshed out, and the villains are not a joke.

I just finished the episode where he's in the woods and I think this is the best show since DD season 1.

Yup. And I'm not saying that this Punisher season was perfect. The first half was a bit of slog to get through. I really was like some posters here and wondering where this stuff is going... but man--did the last half of the season delivered! I was glued to the TV after

Honestly, I like Claire in general, but I appreciated that we didn't get her (increasingly) self-aggrandizing BS in this show.

Even though she doesn't know Frank, I'm sure we would have gotten some lecture from her.

Not finished it yet but its getting better and better with each episode, its starts slowly but is building up nicely. Really like that its going to places and touching on themes other comic book material has not gone to yet, they really have made good use of the rating and not just thrown in over the top gore and violence because of the property involved.

Hope the end pays off but its certainly up there with the best Netflix stuff so far. We shall see.

Starts slowly, he killed around 20 people in the 1st minute of the 1st episode. Doesn't start much faster than that.

This show had the most well rounded "villains" of all the Netflix series. They all felt like real people, even Agent Orange.

Nobody was "evil" in the strictest sense.

Ha yeah fair point but I was meaning more the story than Frank himself but glad it has taken its time, the characters are all well thought out and rounded instead of one dimensional as well as well acted and cast.
