Video+Story: TNTM Review – Punisher Season 2 on Netflix

The Punisher was meant to be a throw-away character first appearing in Amazing Spider-man #129. He was such a hit with readers Marvel kept him around and even gave him his own title.

They wrote him into the story-line for Daredevil season 2 and he stole the show. Netflix/Marvel decided to give him his own series.

The first season of Punisher introduced us to Frank Castle/The Punisher. It also set up Billy Russo/Jigsaw for season 2. A lot of people were anticipating Jigsaw with a scarred & stitched face, but what we got was just some deep scratches on Billy’s face. There was really no reason for him to have the moniker of Jigsaw when the damage to his face was nowhere near what would be deemed patchwork.

As much as Netflix set up Billy Russo to be the big bad guy in season 2, the new character of John Pilgrim was much more compelling. If, and it is a big IF, Netflix goes forward with a season 3 of Punisher I would like to see them use better villains, even if they have to invent them.

We need to see someone really run Frank through the paces rather than just having him plow headlong into fights. I want to see a methodical and strategical Punisher.

The one thing that kinda stuck in the back of my mind was…. where did Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, etc go while Frank was filling up the body bags in New York? You think they would have heard about it on the news and investigated it? How was Karen Page the only one that came out to help Frank? I guess the Defenders were busy doing their own thing.

Let us know what you think about Punisher season 2. Did you enjoy it like Troy or are you indifferent toward it like Patrick?

Video: Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe

Netflix has done a bang-up job bringing the Marvel characters to prominence on their streaming service. They took some of the lower tier characters and made them household names.

It all started with Daredevil. Daredevil on Netflix was absolutely amazing. That series opened the door for all the follow-ons. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Punisher, and the big team up of Defenders.

Even the lowest rated of the Netflix Marvel series are better than a lot of the movies. Still haven’t watched all of Iron Fist season 2 yet, but it is on the list. I actually enjoyed Iron Fist season 1 so this season should be a marked improvement.

What do you think about the Netflix Marvel series? Let us know in the comments below.

TNTM: Punisher on Netflix discussion

If you’ve been paying attention to Netflix you had to notice they are betting heavily on Marvel Comics characters. So far We have seen 2 Daredevil series, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Defenders. Now Netflix is promising to have The Punisher series on Netflix before the end of the year.

The Punisher, a.k.a Francis “Frank” Castle, is a Marvel Comics character created by writer Gerry Conway and artists John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru. The Punisher made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #129.

The Punisher is a vigilante who employs all manner of brutality to get get crime off the street. He started his crusade against crime after his wife and two children were killed by the mob for witnessing a killing in New York City’s Central Park. Frank used his military training as a United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper to systematically and efficiently take out criminals. There is no grey area with the Punisher. You are either good or bad. If you’re bad, he usually ends up killing you.

The Punisher typically works alone. He does have a few select people that help him fight crime. Microchip assists him by building and supplying weapons and technology. Some police officers/detectives have been known to help when they can. Lynn Michaels was a police officer who teamed up with Punisher to take down a serial rapist and later quit the force to become a vigilante. Lt. Martin Soap was secretly allied with the Punisher and gave him information on his targets from the police database.

Jon Bernthal will be reprising his role as Punisher (from Daredevil season 2). For many this was a highlight to the whole season. Daredevil season 2 was the Netflix audience’s introduction to the character. If the writing for the Punisher series is as good as the writing for his character in the Daredevil series, Netflix will have another hit on their hands.
