Incredible
24 January 2019 | by rclarke-01138See all my reviews

The first episode is amazing and set the tone. The bathroom scene was epic. I always loved The Punisher for being raw and not PG-13. It is hard for shows to reach full potential if it is restricted to PG-13. I think that is why Daredevil did not live up to potential because of the "no killing" mentality. Some bad people just have to die unforunately. The Punisher is excellent, the cast is amazing. Respect to Jon Bernthal the best and only Frank Castle I will acknowledge.
