I think it's just cruel to suggest that someone who hasn't seen it should sit through two seasons of Daredevil first.

Yeah, it wasn't all that bad. At least he didn't say that they had to watch Iron Fist.

Oh jesus, indeed. God he was a terrible character. The Protectors or whatever it was would have been a gazillionty times better without him in it.

Uh, Jessica Jones was after Daredevil, so you appear to be saying DD was better than JJ, which is incredibly wrongheaded.

Well I think Daredevil season 1 is still the best Netflix show. And The Punisher is prominently featured in season 2.

Spoiler for what I heard about Daredevil season 3
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Kingpin is back as primary antagonist.


Edit: JJ is good too for the most part, but DD is better.

No, it's empirically correct.

JJ was significantly better than DD1.

I didn’t finish DD2.

2/3 of the way through S1 and it's terribly written, poorly acted and the only good bit is the press secretary guy. Yet, I cannot stop watching it.

I hate everyone in it. Especially jack bauer's wife. Everyone is ridiculously one dimensional and shallow.

I'd generally agree with this. I did finish DD2 but didn't massively enjoy it--especially The Punisher parts--so I'll be giving The Punisher series a miss. I'm looking forward to The Defenders though which is nudging ever closer to getting watched given that I binged The Orville the other day.

And why do they use street view to recon a location but are surprised when they pop elsewhere and it isn't there? Why didn't they use satellite view?

:this: :this: :this:

One of those shows I'd compulsively watch, all the while chastising myself for so utterly wasting my time.

Have swerved S2, I'm done with it.

What! The Punisher bits were the redeeming feature of S2. The Elektra stuff made me nearly fall asleep.

Don't Trust the Birch duo hotter than 2 Broke Girls duo.

Discuss.

Also, the former way better than the latter.

Clowee positive role model.

There was a point the script writers said "that's ace", who passed it on to the editors "who said "nailed it!" And everyone thought it was a good day's work.

I'm aware that I can't really justify that comment but something about the set-up just didn't work for me. Partly because I don't think your man who played him is good enough to be a lead actor, but also because all the philosophising was bollocks: Frank Castle's a murderer and DD isn't. The Punisher as a character is very difficult to make sympathetic and i just don't think think they managed it which made all the agonising nonsense.

I think I miss a lot of Dawson's Creek jokes on Apartment 23, but I am not minded to watch it.

I was going to start watching THE PUNISHER on Netflix last night but the first thing Netflix showed me was a newly added documentary called SAVING CAPITALISM and I tend to like Netflix documentaries so I watched that instead.

It was a good documentary but I fundamentally disagreed with the premise that Robert Reich was starting from, this article sums it up very nicely.

https://www.salon.com/2017/11/18/robert ... -admit-it/

I would still recommend watching this though, it's an interesting piece.

Have you seen Undefeated? It's not a Netflix-made documentary but it is on there, and it's really fucking good.

Several people have said positive things about The Orville now. Hmmm. It got absolutely savaged by the critics and by the first few people I knew who saw it.

Almost tempted now. Though I will want to punch the lead guy in the face for the entire duration of the show, so maybe I shouldn’t.
