    :aok Looking forward to this one. They really did a great job with him in Daredevil. Someone finally got the Punisher right.

    Awesome! Nice to see Jon Bernhal getting steady work after his stint on TWD.

    Yes, the song really fits the mood.

    I've read that it will probably release sometime in November.

    Two episodes in. He's a really hard guy to root for, being a remorseless killer, which makes him very compelling as a character.

    I don't. First of all, it's Shane and secondly The Punisher is a muscle bound weight lifter looking character......Bernhal isn't even close imo.....

    Same!

    I thought the same about Bernthal that he is a bit small for the Punisher. But he makes up for it in sheer bad assness. He plays the part so well that it doesn't really bother me.

    I thought Bernthal really elevated DD season 2. I wondered, though, if he could carry a series as the lead. Four episodes in and I'm thinking yes, yes he can.

    Watched episode 1 last night and enjoyed it immensely. I don't care if the comic character is supposed to be ultra-muscular. Thomas Jane wasn't that way in the movie either and I liked him in the role as well. Bernthal is great - I would've liked to see more of him in DD season 2. Looking forward to more DD and Kingpin in the next season, whenever that will be.

    I'll start watching that today.

    What's the over/under on the amount of times he says "They killed my family"?

    I understand the problem some may have w/ a muscle bound comic character translated to the screen in a story...I think the reality is finding body building actors is probably pretty hard to do... I think the roles require acting more than looks, but the actor certainly looks pretty cut. I can't remember which actor years ago talked about some superhero role he had where he beefed up and lifted weights for the role.. I remember him saying the reality is you can't keep that physique for ever, you have to live and sometimes actors want to eat cheeseburgers for lunch...plus John Cena and the rock can't be in everything
