I did watch “The Punisher – Season 1” on Netflix… watched the whole season. Every episode. The show got addicting from the start. There were some Punisher actors in big screen movies over the years like Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. While those guys were great, I think Jon Bernthal played the best Punisher for sure.
This was a badass show, though. I’m so glad I kept Netflix. Even if most of their original material are shit, sometimes they can have good stuff on there. I was impressed with “The Punisher” on Netflix. It was fucking awesome. Loved all of it. The writing, the acting and the filming were pretty good too. The show was really violent and bloody as well.
When you watch this show, though, Frank Castle doesn’t put on the skull shirt and turn into this tough guy badass toward the end of the show. This is a new origin story of the Punisher, just an introduction. I’m sure things will get even better in Season 2. Season 1 was just a new introduction of the Punisher.
Jon Bernthal is a talented actor, though. I remembered him as Shane in “The Walking Dead” (a show I quit watching by the way). I’m already looking forward to Season 2. I’m not into Marvel that much but the Punisher is my favorite Marvel character. I love the Frank Castle story.
I like the Punisher ’cause he’s one of the very few superheroes who don’t have any superpowers. He’s just a real human kind of like Batman.
If you haven’t seen “The Punisher” on Netflix yet, you should watch it. I thought it was surprisingly a great show.
There are other shows I want to watch on Netflix. I gotta get around to starting “Gotham – Season 3” and I want to check out “Stranger Things” too. Too many shows, too little time.
