Wooh embargos are up, I can talk about the show now. Yea this is definitely on par with Season 1. Jigsaw might not look like the comic version we know him as but man is he menacing. John Pilgrim makes a great villain, and this is definitely a fitting end to the series if Netflix does indeed cancel it.
Listened to 15 minutes of this review. Seems like the new cast members does really well, especially Giorgia Whigham as Amy Bendix who is a standout. But that they don't really use John Pilgrim, Floriana Lima or even Madani from S1 thats well. That the show is much more a Punisher MAX comic book action show with straight punishing, instead of having deeper conversations, themes and dialogue like in S1. So I feel like it's gonna be a pretty different show that has other strengths to the first season. I'm super excited about Frank Castle and Amy Bendix's relationship.
