    Marvel's The Punisher discussion thread





    So I just finished binge watching this, for a first season I have to say it was pretty good. I am used to The Punisher Max version of the character that had been killing criminals for 30 years and was more hardened, it was cool to see him as more of a human before he just stopped giving a fuck.

    I am on episode 6 keep getting interrupted.Pretty dope so far. I like the backstory they are running with. Showcasing that he was always a borderline psychopath his family just kept him in check.

      Good point, that is the part the movies always got wrong. Frank Castle wasn't a normal guy who snapped after his family died, he is a psychopath that finally had something to keep him sane and after it was taken needed to take it out on others. Not sure how I feel about them changing his origin story though, I always liked the fact that the mob killed his family.

        Well in a way they did. But they were just puppets for a way bigger organization. Frank killing blackops soldiers showcases his skills way more than killing some fat overweight mafia henchmen. The criminal organization on that level that can handle him is the Kingpins group. Highly doubtful they make them go at each other right away.

              Definitely puts to rest any idea of him being an "anti-hero". Just going off against people as bad ,if not worse. than he is.

                          lmao, I've heard otherwise by like, everyone.

                          Do you even watch arrow? The quality of arrow alone shits on anything marvel has put out on tv, and they even got permission to create three shows based on how good arrow was, set in the same universe within each other.

                              What? Anyways, fanboying aside, Punished looks promising, But suffers from the same issues Gotham does imo.

                                Except me right now. So not everyone.

                                No I actually disliked Arrow alot. And I generally dislike anything to do with comics so I don't have a side.

                                Gotham is a great show. It dipped in quality in season 2, but by the middle of season 3 it regained quality. The Punisher is almost nothing like Gotham, though.

                                    Pretty much, Arrow is the same CW melodrama that has been done 1000 times. Then again Solor liked Angel so that should tell you that he loves that crap.

                                      I watch arrow but it is not anywhere near as raw as punisher. In fact I am surprised disney cosigned punisher with some of the ideas it ran with this season.

                                        Maybe you should actually watch the show before jumping to conclusions like that.

                                        There is drama, but that's definitely a far cry away from describing the show itself. That's essentially calling Punisher a batman lite where the main character is a self insert.

                                        Actually that oneiros guy comes to mind, as does the other communities i hail from.

                                        Guys I apologized for assuming things about Punisher too, but don't turn around and spread misinformation about my show, Arrow.
