    Finished it today, best Marvel Netflix show IMO. Or at least the equal of DD season 2.

    3 episodes in.... Bloody hell it’s awesome!

    I know they would never do it.... but I’m low key hoping this Cerberus conspiracy leads its way to the top Rand Enterprises...

    That way we get to see Frank walk up to that glowy hand fairy and put a bullet in his eye socket... :joy::joy:

    Yeah, I am three episodes in and I feel that this has an appropriate level of violence.

    Jon Bernthal is perfect as Frank Castle. He's brilliant.

    Yeah, from seeing him in season one of The Walking Dead I knew he'd be perfect for the role.

    Tbh, I was concerned about his size initially - he's muscular, but he's like 175cm tall or something.

    However, Bernthal's acting chops can't be questioned, and he brings the complexity and emotion to The Punisher that the character demands.

    Very, very happy to see what he has brought to the role.

    Thomas Jane?

    Not sure if you're taking the piss but I liked him as Frank Castle. The short film they did with him a fee years back was awsome

    7 episodes in.... the only issue I have with the story so is...
    It was just too obvious that Billy Russo was dirty and part of the conspiracy.... you knew he was dirty from the moment they showed him handing cheques Curtis... I hope they throw in a curveball here...

    I had no idea that Jigsaw was Billy Russo.... I thought Jigsaw was a Mafia hitman....

    Just finished it.... best Marvel Netflix series ever imo...

    For me it just beats Daredevil Season 2.... mainly because DD gets abit spooky with all the black sky coming back to life stuff....

    This felt more real... the gritty violence added to that realism.

    After DD, Iron Fist and the defenders... Its good to have a story that didn’t involve the hand.... I hope we see Wilson Fisk again... team him up with Billy Russo for the punisher season 2...

    Really? I think they must have him in platform shoes or something because he looks about 185 in this show- thinking back to The Walking Dead he definitely seems taller in this than he did in that. Not thaqt that is uncommon, Guys like Stallone have spend half their careers acting in heels.

    I think I read it somewhere that he's about 175cm tall.

    But he's a brilliant actor - really like him a lot, and he's perfect as Frank Castle.
