Marvel's The Punisher (Netflix) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 1/18/19






Former marine-turned-vigilante Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) has been living a quiet life on the road until he suddenly becomes embroiled in the attempted murder of a young girl (Giorgia Whigham). As he is drawn into the mystery surrounding her and those in pursuit of the information she holds, Castle attracts a new target on his back as new and old enemies force him to confront whether he should accept his destiny and embrace a life as The Punisher.
Some of the action in this looks great and brutal. Russo/Jigsaw's face doesn't look as fucked up as I thought they would make it.

Should have just called this "The Final season" thread.

Just starting episode 7. Yeah, the episodes, most of them have a slow burn aspect, but when the ultra violence hits, it hits fucking hard!

So far this has a Banshee feel to it. Especially Episode 3.

I'm on episode 12. Shit, I thought I was going to be bothered by Jigsaw's portrayal but he's cool and full of depth. Instead of making him a disfigured meathead, they 180'd him to be quite tactful.

Oh man, and how fucking brutal was that fight in the gym a couple of episodes back? I shit my pants.

Just wrapped it up. I agree with dex in that it does have a Banshee feel, which there's nothing wrong with that. The violence and brutality, however, was off the hook!

After recently finishing Daredevil, it's refreshing to see some proper killing, not this no killling rubbish

One episode in, and so far better than anything else in the other Marvel shows

That fight was sick

On episode 7 myself now. Love this show. Definitely my favorite of the Netflix Marvel shows.
Just a shame we won't get a third season.

Binge shows are tougher to talk about because everyone watches at their own pace so no one is on the same episode to discuss and we just jump to the next episode instead of coming to discuss it. Seems most of these binge shows dumped on Netflix, etc... lack any real big discussion in comparison to some of the popular weekly aired shows.

On the final ep now. Sucks this is more than likely the last season...

Been binging but had to take a break. It’s probably just me, but by ep 10, the Russo plotline was getting tedious and I was getting annoyed of the show by ep 11. I was really liking the first half of the season, but it felt like the writing started turning stupid midway. Also, I’ve realized I can only take Ben Barnes in small doses...I didn’t find him compelling enough to carry as much of the show as he’s had to.

I don’t like the overall plot of the season very much.

Finally finished - while the action scenes were good, there was way too much “stupid character decision” contrivances in order to either add false drama or to move the plot along. The parallel plot lines were just two stories happening separately at the same time (impacting each other only in “moving the plot along” ways), which made both feel dragged out way too long.

Also, great thumbnails Netflix - the thumbnail for the last episode made watching the first 30 minutes pointless because it tells you where it’s heading.

Hate being so negative, but it had a good, promising start and then it just become a slow, tedious, annoying story to slog through.

Loved the season. No complaints here. By far the best show the Marvel Netflix universe had to offer in it's short life.

It feels like the second season of Luke Cage where it is more about the other characters than Frank Castle.

Episode 2: the scene where Frank is trying to get the hotel room, around 35 minutes in: "What, are you expecting a rush? Is there a convention or something?"

If Bernthal doesn't star in the next Jack Reacher movie, there's no justice in the world.

I've read every Lee Child novel- He would just KILL IT as Reacher.

I'm about half way through ep 10 so far. Love the show. Really wish we could get another season of this. Its the best of all the Marvel Netflix shows to me. If banshee is like this then I'm going to have to check that out.

Nah, I get it. I just wanted to kick the thread in the balls a bit.
