I just finished watching season 2 of the Punisher, and I must say bravo to Netflix and the makers for making an excellent second season that IMHO deserves a third season.

The brutality was all one can expect of the Punisher, brutal, violent, deadly and razor sharp in his intent as the Punisher should be.

So, has anybody else finished season 2 and how did you rate it? Super hero series have been a bit of an issue with Netflix, great first season and then not so great second season. But the Punisher was excellent in season 2. Maybe they should trust the Punisher route if they want to re-introduce those super heroes back again.

I watch Netflix because it can give what "mega movies" and television shows about super heroes often lack, grittiness and the real ravages of going to war as a super hero. Many are cookie cutter shows with big bad guys and "acceptable" levels of violence. Netflix can give us a bit of realism. Parents can determine what their kids can and cannot watch IMHO and Netflix should use that when making their own shows that did not make it on regular TV or are too realistic for normal television.

When I see someone get shot they should be able to curse and swear because they are in pain/dying. Bleeps are not something shows like the Punisher needs.

I hope it is also the road they will take with Lucifer. A show that has great potential but has been hampered by the clean police. Lucifer is a voracious sexual animal but besides a few scantily dressed women the show has not shown us that.

Netflix should make shows that regular TV will not make. Don't make soppy remakes, make original shows and make them realistic, feel like it is not just PG rated stuff. Most Netflix users can handle stuff with a bit more mature content. And I am not talking about pornographic or semi pornographic scenes but scenes where people who get shot actually bleed, where when a devil has sex with women a bit of flesh is appropriate.

Netflix should bring shows that Disney or other potential competitors will not bring, bring the pain so to speak, bring the realism into the adult entertainment it produces.

And bring back the Punisher for season 3, Frank Castle deserves a higher body count of scum.

Gotta love Netflix. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and even YouTube are doing a great job at original,TV shows. I am sure it is because they don’t have to cater to as broad of a generic audience as broadcast TV does.

I haven’t finished season one of The Punisher. I had to take a break from it because some of the PTSD stuff was a bit too...intense for me. But it is so good I need to just suck it up and power through. Glad to hear the 2nd season is good as well.

It probably won't get one, given the fates of Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

You gotta understand that this pace of production is not sustainable, and that huge chunks of the productions are of low quality.

There has never been a better time to be a bad actor or writer or director or...

But the Punisher is a different kind of beast. I stopped watching Iron Fist, Cage and Daredevil midway through the series, it did not entice me to go and watch more episodes. It felt too much comic book and not enough real action violence when beating the bad guys.

Personally I hope that Spawn gets a reboot sooner rather than later, that too could be a great show with the level of intensity that Spawn had.

I’m not referring to show quality; I’m referring to Disney gradually migrating its properties to its own streaming service.
