I hated the movies, but loved this series.
8 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I've really enjoyed the Netflix Marvel shows (yes, even Iron Fist and Luke Cage, though to much lesser degrees than Dare Devil and Jessica Jones). I read Dare Devil, Iron Fist and Powerman comic books as a kid and I am glad that I only remember the broad strokes of each of these characters, because I do not have the bias or the need for acute adherence to comic books. As for The Punisher, I can say it is probably my favorite of the Netflix Marvel original series. It might just be because it is the newest, but I don't that because I didn't like any of the other Netflix Marvel series more than Dare Devil and Jessica Jones until The Punisher. This actually surprised me because I've disliked all of the Punishers movies I've seen. I think what I liked most about Netflix's Punisher was that, as outrageous as the premise is (it's from a comic book after all), the characters felt based in reality. As they say, you can write any character as crazy and "out there" as you please, as long as that character obeys the rules of the Universe you've described in your story and Frank Castle fits perfectly into the Universe in which Iron Fist, Dare Devil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage exist, but still feels like a normal human.
