The second season of The Punisher on Netflix releases into all of our lives next Friday! I was pretty OK with the first season, and you best believe I’m going to watch the second.
The biggest thing I want from season 2 — other than a direct adaptation of The Slavers — is more actual punishing. I want him in the outfit with the skull logo killing criminals. I don’t like that Jigsaw is coming back, to keep the fight personal. I want the Punisher indiscriminately killing criminals and bad guys. That’s the Punisher!
Netflix’s next big cartoon hit is apparently going to be a Carmen Sandiego cartoon. And they’ve added a twist in that she’s a hero now. She’s still a thief, but she steals things that bad guy thieves are trying to steal before they can steal them.
I’m a huge fan of Netflix cartoons. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power was one of my favorite overall shows last year — and come back Wednesday for a not-at-all timely List of Six about my thoughts on the show — so here’s hoping this new cartoon is just as good. I’m not a fan of the premise, at least not at this surface level. Why not make a cartoon about a bad guy? Encourage kids that stealing is cool!
We’ll see how it goes!
The Netflix Defenders are in free fall! Within the past week or so, both Iron Fist and Luke Cage have been cancelled! It’s quite the shocker! I always pictured these four shows — along with Daredevil and Jessica Jones — as being a package deal. And does Netflix really cancel shows? Is that how they work?
Whatever the case may be, the third season of Daredevil arrived to remind us all that these shows can be damn good!
Comic Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
Daredevil remains the standout show of the entire experiment. With the exception of the season 2 finale, I’ve loved everything about the Daredevil show, so I’m quite pleased at another exciting season. Though if I’m being honest, Daredevil isn’t among the best TV of the year for me. It’s fun and exciting, but for me, it falls just under the radar of being must-watch television. Still good though.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the latest season. Except FULL SPOILERS for the whole season. And feel free to share your own reviews in the comments.
It’s barely been a month since the last season of Iron Fist ended, and the new season of Daredevil is soon upon us! Looking back at the Netflix Defenders as a whole, I think the Daredevil seasons have been my favorite, so I’m very excited! Especially since Wilson Fisk is the villain again!
And it has been confirmed that the other villain in that trailer is Bullseye! So cool beans there! Hopefully he gets his own costume by the end.
Daredevil season 3 arrives on Netflix on Oct. 19.
Happy Birthday to me! And what better way to celebrate than with the trailer for the new season of my favorite show, BoJack Horseman! Season 5 starts later this month!
Don’t worry about getting me anything for my birthday. The number of things I’ve written off in the past few months as a ‘birthday gift to myself’ would make you shake your head in shame at my poor money management skills. No worries, I’m likely having a blast today.
