Total disappointment
17 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Was hooked on The Punisher comics during the eighties, and have enjoyed all 3 movies multiple times since they where made. I've been waiting eagerly on this show since the announcement, and been re-watching the movies over the last weeks to get ready for binge watching the series on Netflix.

Unfortunately it was a total letdown.

After sitting trough the first six episodes, and getting bored to death with drama, talking, more talking, and more talking people, mixed with continues meaningless flashbacks, I finally gave up and fast forwarded trough the remaining episodes, only to slow down and see the last episode fully. I did not miss a thing.

The show might be called "The Frank Castle Drama before he becomes The Punisher", but it is definitely not "The Punisher".

This is like buying 13 copies of "The Punisher" comic, and there are only "The Punisher" worthy action and "punishment" 1 page every 3 comic books.

There are maybe enough material in the 13 episodes for 2 proper "The Punisher" episodes.

I like Jon Bernthal as an actor and in the few scenes where he are allowed to act with the presence of "The Punisher" its really good.. But then of course there is a flashback, and he end up talking to someone for 5-10 minutes.... I wont give this a 1, because its at least an attempt on "The Punisher", but cant stretch this higher than a 3.

And... first ever review. Written 5 minutes after seeing the last episode... so yea, this was a letdown..
