So much better than I expected

I really liked this show. I am not a comic book fan, but somehow found myself sucked in to Daredevil. It sux hard that Netflix cancelled all their Marvil shows.

Anyway, the Punisher was a great character on Daredevil, and despite some bad reviews, we gave the show a chance. We were really surprised how much we liked it. My husband likes it much more than Daredevil. It isn't as much of a comic book show as the other.

Despite lower reviews for season 2, I really liked both seasons. With so much crap on Netflix these days, it's hard for me to understand why they didn't fight harder to keep their Marvel Shows. I've heard Disney will reboot Daredevil for their streaming channel or for Hulu. But what's the point of remaking it with new actors when we love the show already? I doubt Punisher will have any chance for reboot or continuation. Very disappointing!
