what a huge disappointment from 1st to 2nd Season
20 January 2019 | by joshgibbs-35276See all my reviews

I must say i took me a while to get used Jon Bernthal casting as the Punisher but i eventually warmed up to it in the first season. Now the second season is a complete mess. Ben Barnes (Billy Russo) acting is worse than Keanu Reeve!! It is just horrible with his constant head and eyes movement and the terrible scars that don't match the amount of damage The Punisher made on his face at the end of 1st season. Anyhow no to go off on Billy but that piece just ruined the story. The new villain is Jon Pilgrim working for another dude. Josh Stewart does a good job acting and bringing this odd combo of religion and psychosis into this subtle but highly interesting character. The rest is just bunch meaningless conversation and over-the-top acting. I experimented watching ep 2 thru 5 by zipping thru every few minutes to only catch fight scenes and tit bit of conversations between main characters. I was able to watch three episodes in 11 minutes and did not miss an iota of the story or action after I went back and watching full episodes. That should tell you that the plot and story line and character building is just meaningless in this season. It is a braindead plot, uninteresting villains (except for Jon Pilgrim) and way way over-the-top acting. Even the action scenes are not as good as the first season. In one episode he is running around the trees in the dark shooting bad guys. Seriously shooting sitting ducks in the dark.... But that the essence of this second season
