    Im not one much for investing in TV series. I mostly watch movies or read books. Rarely watch TV. 

    Punisher season 1 was excellent, so i’ll definitely watch all of season 2. 


    Thanks for the heads up, I didn't know there was a season 2 coming out.  This will give me something else to watch after Ray Donovan finishes. 

    Yeah, I suspect it'll just about be the last of the Marvel/Netflix shows before Disney launch their own streaming platform and shove it all on there.

    Do you think the Disney streaming service will retain the grit of the Netflix Marvel shows?

    Doubt it.

    Disney has never done anything like it.

    For other adult themed stuff they usually release it under a different studio name for films.

    But at the same time if Disney wants their streaming service to be more than just a kids service then they'll have to compete with Netflix and Amazon - but that doesn't mean they will do 18 certificate stuff.

    They would certainly lose a lot of Marvel fans if there wasn't as much action.  Can you imagine a watered down version of The Punisher?  Terrible!

    Not to mention they will soon be taking control of Deadpool as well.

    Perhaps they think they will lose some adult fans but replace them with more younger fans.

    I was reading some film sites and several commentators think Disney won't join the X-Men and Deadpool with the MCU but just release those films under the 20C Fox banner instead to distance them from Disney.

    Disney has a "No R Rated" film policy but Bob Iger (Head of Disney) has said they don't want to ruin a successful product either.

    If the X-Men and Fantastic Four join the MCU then we could have a proper version of "The Secret Wars" But I can't see Deadpool working in the squeaky clean MCU and then having 15 or 18 cert releases as well.

    Daredevil was in the Avengers in the comics for a while too.

    Who knows what they'll do with it. Or Jessica Jones. Iron Fist definitely needs a recasting job though!

    I don't know - it seems written & directed as a sulky teenager thing, not 100% sure it's the actor's fault (I can't stand it BTW)

    Imagine something sharp and witty here ......

    Jessica Jones season 3 will probably be the Marvel/Netflix swan song...
    My trading feedback

    is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    I thought the first season of Jessica Jones was great then I sort of lost interest about half way through the second season, should I pick it up again?

  • I enjoyed season 2 as it developed.. Mrs B&T rates it the best of the M/N offerings..

    I have a feeling season 3 could be about Trish's powers but who knows..

    Just started watching season one of The Punisher today on the strength of this thread. Up to episode four already.

    Bloody hell,it's brutal. My son,who's seen the whole season,said it gets even worse. 

    Just my kind of show  :)


    Laugh, love, live, learn.

    JJ was great, iron fist was totally missed cast. Luke Cage was great, but in some ways it bigged up Black American gang culture in such a way it was almost racist.
    Season 3 of Daredevil was a let down.

    Jeez - I went and dug this out to give it a go cos you rated it but is draw droppingly tedious... just how much incessant soul searching can you get away with just to keep the budget down...??

    At least it lives up to its title...

    Most of the navel gazing is front loaded. It gets very fighty towards the end of the series if that's what you're into. 

    For me, all the punching and shooting (and stabbing and bludgeoning and burning and kicking, and gouging and hair pulling and scratching and name calling) is more effective as drama when you know who's doing it to who, and why, which makes the soul searching worthwhile.

    Don't talk politics and don't throw stones. Your royal highnesses.

    Marvel have stated that will not be renewing any of the Netflix series and Disney+ have announced that they will not be continuing them.  The whole project will be done, dusted, dead and buried after the second season of The Punisher is over ...like most of his victims.

    I can't help but think Titans is a glimpse of a more permanent (and flourishing) Netflix / DC relationship.  They've certainly done better in the four episodes of that, that I've seen, than Warners have done with umpteen series of their tedious Arrowverse-related shows...
    Not much of the gear, even less idea.

    Watched half of season 2. It’s a bit slower than season 1, but not bad. Some great bits.  
    Looking forward to the remaining 7 episodes

    S3 of Jessica Jones is currently in/recently wrapped production so that will be the last one.
    Really disappointed that Netflix and Marvel aren't continuing the shows. I think they all had good moments and even S2 of Iron Fist was good. (Once "The Hand" were no longer the main villains of the Marvel/Netflix Universe things picked up)

    Titans isn't a Netflix show. It's shown on Netflix in the UK and internationally but it's actually a DC/WBTV produced show for the DC streaming service in the US.
    I was pleasantly surprised with Titans. Strange that the most adult of the Berlanti DC shows is actually about teens/YA
    Looking forward to Dick becoming Nightwing in S2

    It picks up towards the end, but not a patch on the first series.  Are there no other bad guys in this ‘universe’..?

    Just finished season 2. Not as good as the first, but was OK.

    However,  Jon Bernthal's 'angry punisher' voice is just ridiculous.
