Netflix is stupid to cancel such a great show
23 September 2020 | by diamoreiiiSee all my reviews

It took me a while to watch the second season but I though this show was just insanely good. The violence was perfect and the fight scenes were just awesome. Netflix has a lot of trash shows but this show was just brilliant. It had the perfect authenticity to what the Punisher is and it was told really well. Hell, I think this show is way better than Umbrella Academy, but that's just me. Sadly, you could tell it was going to end at season 2 just by seeing how Jigsaw was handled at the end...what a waste. It had so much more potential and only 2 seasons...stupid Netflix.

The actors in this show are all incredible and you fall in love with all the characters. You really get to know their personas and how each character has an influence on each other. The writers, actors and everyone involved in its creation made a show that I will always remember. Jon brought the Punisher to life and I don't think there will ever be a better Punisher than him, he really owned that character. To me, he's what Ryan is to Deadpool. If there ever is a Movie, Jon just has to be the Punisher or it won't be the Punisher.
