The Punisher

Even though at this point I feel pretty burned by Marvel’s Netflix series — the only series I’ve really liked a lot was Daredevil — I was looking forward to this, mostly because I liked Bernthal’s portrayal of the Punisher in the second season of Daredevil (even though I felt it was a waste to have him be in courtroom scenes for so many episodes). I’ve watched the first three episodes, and I’m sorta meh on it. I think it’s fine, and the strength of it is still the way Bernthal plays Punisher, and I like the new woman FBI agent. But I can’t say that the storyline is really exciting me a lot so far, and I’m so tired of seeing those flashbacks of his family — yes, we know what happened, enough already. I may still watch more, but it’s not high on my list of things to watch.
