The Punisher (Mega Drive) Review

Uh-oh, here we go again! I’m afraid in order to have an actual “Then and Now” thoughts section I have to review a far inferior home version of a great Arcade game once more, in this case the 1993 Punisher game’s Mega Drive port. Maybe when “Scrolling Sundays” comes to its planned end I’ll do some bonus weeks of reviewing the actual good original versions of some of these games… With all that being said, let’s take a look!

The Punisher – Season 2 Overall Review

The Punisher’s second season was less focused than the first, and told a less compelling story, but it has to be said that it was still fun to watch. Ben Barnes’ Billy Russo was believably crazy and The Punisher is still an interestingly broken character himself. Let’s take a closer look at the series overall, then…

The Punisher – Season 2 Episodes 5 – 9 Review

punisher s2 p2

The Punisher’s second season continues onward with two plotlines starting to merge together.  It’s got some brutal action and some uncomfortably great acting from our lead duo of Frank Castle and Billy Russo. While it’s not quite up to the first season, which had a more interesting plot by now, but still good TV. Let’s take a closer look…

The Punisher – Season 2 Episodes 1 – 4 Review

The Punisher’s first season took me by surprise, as I was expecting the usual over-the-top action and violence that you get with the character, but I also got a reserved, broken version of Frank Castle and a really interesting and well-written look as PTSD. Season 2 so far has started to fall back into line with what I originally expected from the show, but the MCU version of Jigsaw is looking to be very interesting indeed…

The Punisher – Season 1 Overall Review

Punisher S1

The Punisher is a return to form for the MCU’s Netflix division, and one of the best shows I’ve watched all year. It’s uncompromisingly violent, sure, but it also tells a great story, with several characters intertwined in a big conspiracy that gets out of hand. Good plot twists, set pieces and most importantly, great actors/actresses mean this is highly recommended by me, personally. Let’s take a final and overall look at what I hope is the first of many seasons…

The Punisher – Season 1 Episodes 5 – 9 Review

Punisher P2

The Punisher’s middle is full of exciting action and a few twists, but most importantly it still focuses on its cast of broken characters and develops them so well. It’s amazing how the portrayal of one event, one period of time has changed so many people in so many different ways. It’s great story telling! Hooray! Let’s take a closer look at the 5th to 9th episodes!

Punisher S1 P1

The latest entry into the Netflix side of the MCU has arrived in the form of The Punisher. What I love about both the comics world and this one is how many completely different stories can be told within it, and nothing has exemplified this more than having watched Spider-Man Homecoming a few days ago followed by watching this! So let’s take a look at the beginning of the Punisher’s solo outing, after a great start in the Daredevil Season 2…
