    I know this just dropped, so I won't post any spoilers now, but holy smokes! What a freaking series! Loved it from start to finish. I don't know if there will be a season two but I hope so as this one was really good IMHO.

    Me and the wife started it on Saturday and pretty much blew through all 13 episodes! She actually liked it to.

    Anyone else watched or watching this?

    I stick with all of them because I didn't read comic books as a kid so I don't know the stories behind the characters, if you don't know the why then the what isn't all that important

    It is a coin toss between Season One of Daredevil and Punisher on which I like better. There was violence in DD that we had not seen at the time in a comic book based movie. Yes we had Blade etc, but at the time, most folks didn't know that was based off a comic book. But even then the violence was somewhat tame and palatable since you knew it was a vampire vs vampire. The Punisher series took that violence to a whole new level! The scene in episode 12 was something else and I compare it to the DD scene with the car door pumped to the next level! Wowzers!

    I like the heck out of daredevil too but if I remember that thread too I said much the same thing as I did on this one.

    Punisher is violent and graphically and since it's shot with that same darkish grainy overlay it makes the violence even worse

    For me, dark is a minus, violence if not handled right is a minus. I’ve not yet seen Punisher on Netflix, but the seemless fight sequence in Season 1 Daredevil was awesome! A hero that punishes people without killing them. Hopefully Punisher retribution does not strike me as excessive.

    Watched the first ep, good start. Waiting til I have some time to binge a few before pressing on.

    I can already tell this series is going to make me continually wish Shane was still in the Walking Dead...

    Which ending are you referring to? The one where he sits down followed by the discussion and final remark?

    Just finished it. 10/10 (near) perfection.

    That's as close as it can get to the comic books for me and the side-story about Lewis..:eek: just damn. Didn't see something ultra dense like that coming in a Marvel Netflix show.

    The way it ended I'm not sure there will be a season two. Pre-quel maybe?

    Yes he is! Of course that is if they do another season. I don't see why they don't, but that doesn't mean they will. Fingers crossed as I would love to see what kind of mayhem Jigsaw can create!

    That is what has me a little nervous and since there hasn't been any talk or even mumbling from either Netflix or Marvel, has me a little worried.

    He's part of the Defenders team so there is a lot more to come for the show.

    I just finished it and thought it was great. Easily one of the better Netflix/Marvel series. I thought the critical response would be higher, I only looked into it after finishing the last episode. I guess some aren't a fan of the tone and violence :/

    I binge watched it in exactly two short days and I absolutely loved it. Here's my review of it on IMDb:

    The series is much better than the movie.

    While I enjoyed the series, I felt there could have been more character development and storyline, versus seeing the Punisher defy reality every fight encounter.

    Can’t wait to see this. I have been waiting for it from his first appearance in DD.
