Basically true, although towards the end of the season, you get poignant boinking.
I must've missed the boinking scenes. Maybe I dozed off.
I think they were important because of the lead up to them being really on opposite sides.
Probably, because they were hard to miss otherwise! Totally gratuitous...
Uneven. The script could have been better. Also to much meaningless and disgusting violence. If I wanna see that ****, I can rewatch Saw (which I don't)
Well that’s The Punisher for you.
Just finished episode 3 of The Sinner on Netflix. This is excellent stuff.
I know this is a Punisher thread but God yes, The Sinner was bloody amazing with absolutely top drawer acting
Finally got around to finishing the series. It was alright, not something I'll ever re-visit but it occurs to me that I wouldn't re-watch ANY of the Netflix original series! Although I'll probably watch GLOW again somewhere down the line. Jon Bernthal is a force of nature, the writing on this show should be better suited to his talent. That said, the ultra violent climax is probably a big hit with the kids and I have no doubt we'll be seeing more in the future.
Enjoyed this series very much.
HAHA....Sorry about that!! Looks like I made my comment on the wrong thread! Glad to know you enjoyed it though!
Have only seen 2 episodes but so far it's really good, imo.
Just picked up for Season 2 by Netflix...
‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ Renewed for Season 2
Punisher is pretty good, I’m about halfway through. Could not get through one episode of IronFist, and only made it a few episodes of daredevil before bailing on those.
Just made it through the final episode of Punisher, and my biggest complaint is that they dragged out the last couple of hours of story and strung it across 5 hours. The whole 13-hour show could've easily been compressed to 8 hours.
But I think the violence served the story, and the overall approach was pretty good. There's a ton of the usual cliches and stuff, but if you can overlook that, it's an entertaining show (albeit with the most extreme bloodshed and torture I've ever seen on TV).
Episode 7 is next for us. I agree, even at this point some episodes seem to have a lot of filler. Lots of dialogue that does little to move the plot forward. Still, we're fans.
agree with you 100%
In that final fight scene, I would've played Annie Lennox' "Walking On Broken Glass" as background music.
even THAT part went on too long though.
I enjoyed it. Looking forward to "Jigsaw" in Season 2.
As much as I love them, that's pretty much true for every Marvel TV series (including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). It doesn't even really make sense for a Netflix show - it's not like they have to fill out a a "calendar" with new episodes each week for a set amount of weeks. They're designed to be binge-watched. Why make that experience less pleasant for the viewer by having it creep along at such a slow pace? Reduce the number of episodes and reduce your budget. Or use those savings elsewhere (effects, actors, etc.).
