    Damn, solid first episode, I'm so glad this show is finally here!

    On another note, this show is really making me realize it's time to cancel my UHD Netflix subscription. It's absurd that they aren't going 4k for all of their original content.

    I just finished the episode and if it continues to be this fun then it could be my favorite Marvel Netflix show. I’m currently confused at the 67% RT score.

    I’m only on episode 6. So I’m. It reading any of this thread yet.

    I popped in to ask a question. To those who have finished, should there be any urgency to finish the show ASAP to ensure nothing is spoiled?

    I have a feeling no huge reveal will be in this, as I haven’t seen much reaction online. I’m askkng because I’m 2 weeks behind on the CW shows and I want to be caught up for their crossover next week. So if I can safely set this aside without worrying about anything major getting put in my feeds I will catch up there first. Feel free to DM me. Thanks!
  6. I have two episodes left. I've really been enjoying these later episodes. Some great, brutal stuff in them. Also, this show feels the least like a Marvel property of all the Netflix shows.

    First episode was a little slow, but daamn it picks up quite a bit from there. Ep 3 is my favorite so far, I'm up to 5 now.

    Micro and Frank are easily my favorite pair from the Netflix shows.

    This show is incredible, one of my favorites, easily my favorite superhero show (as much as I like The Flash).

  10. Not as strong as Jessica Jones and Luke Cage thematically, but still probably the most well-executed Marvel Netflix show simply because it didn't drag too much at a certain point (Jessica Jones) or switch villains (Luke Cage) or feel overburdened by too many plot lines (Daredevil S2). I enjoyed every episode of this, even the slow ones, but holy shit episode 10 was something else.

    How’s the action?

    I do not exist.

    Probably the best simple assessment of these Netflix shows that I've read.

    Yet to watch The Punisher but I will at some point.

    I gotta give this another shot. I liked the first episode, but eps 2 & 3 were so boring I fell asleep during both.

    It's a definitely a slow burner. After the first 10 minutes i thought we would be getting Frank smashing skulls with hammers. Wasn't until the last episode he was the Punisher again and those episodes were awesome.

    The wife and I just finished Ep 10. I can’t understand the mediocre reviews. I think is up there with JJ and DD. We’re loving it. I’m invested in every character, I love the dialogue. I think Jon Bernthal is incredible too. Do you think the political commentary is a bit heavy handed for the show perhaps?

    oh my god, I'm back on my bullshit Prestigious

    Just finished episode 11 and I really don't want this to end

    I just finished the season too and damn this one was brutal by the end. I think this show was well made. I don't understand the low score either. Maybe if it wasn't the 5th Marvel-Netflix show, everybody would praise it, but maybe people got a bit overwhelmed with these comics series/films. All in all, it was worth it, and as mentioned earlier Micro and Frank were really good together.

    Haven't enjoyed much of the Netflix Marvel series since the first season of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, but this is really good. Berenthal just plays this character so well.

    I know a little something you won't ever know Prestigious

    I think I'm 6 eps in, I like the characters and the action a lot but the writing is kinda bad sometimes. I guess thats the baseline in superhero media though. It's a lot of fun

    I can’t believe how gross this was. More like The Punished, Amirite?! The broken glass thing in the finale was the cringiest thing I’ve seen in some time.

    Oh man, that was brutal to watch for sure, but really well done.

    Overall, I thought this season was very well-written. It was heart-wrenching, and there were many times I teared up. You genuinely feel sorry for Frank and Micro, and the show's balance between violence while showing the human side of things and showing these characters' motivations keeps the violence from feeling cheap, even if you don't agree with it. There are some choices I'm not the biggest fan of, like certain ways Billy and Madoni were handled in different parts of the show, but I think this is the strongest Marvel Netflix series since Jessica Jones.

    This is pretty easily one of my favourite things in the entire mcu. The last 3 episodes in particular were incredible. This show has totally reaffirmed my love for the character, gonna have to reread all my old Punisher comics now haha.
