I didn’t start out watching the Marvel shows right away. In fact, I didn’t give Daredevil a shot until I noticed who played Matt. When I realized he was in Stardust, we got through the season in a week. Season 2 promised Elektra and The Punisher and both of them proved to be pretty amazing. All around, a great introduction for a season all on his own.
I admit I got deeply into The Punisher when the show came out. We watched the first several episodes in one sitting and ultimately got through it all in 3 days over the course of 1 week. There was a lot to like but for me, there were plenty of problems which culminated in an ending I did not appreciate, enough so that I ended up not liking the show. I would not likely watch it again.
What went right:
What went wrong:
All around, my feelings about the show may be nitpicky. This was the Marvel show I wanted to watch the most. I binge watched Daredevil Season 2 to get to this point and while I enjoyed it throughout the experience itself, by the end, I found myself no longer liking it and, in fact, being disappointed. There were lots of great things here but all around, it suffered from too many episodes (it should’ve been 8 with a lot of cut out fluff) and too much sitting around/recovering.
Ultimately, though the main villain got wrecked in a pretty horrifying way, I did not feel satisfied with how it played out. I cannot recommend it after watching it but I can also understand why folks would forgive my complaints above and enjoy it.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and see what you thought.
