Under different circumstances, Marvel/Netflix's The Punisher would have easily drawn the attention of all genre enthusiasts. Unfortunately, someone had the bright idea of releasing what may be one of the best comic book TV series ever right when another concern put out what should have been their biggest hit, and things didn't work out well for The Punisher. If Justice League had failed to impress, its divisiveness remained a major distraction.
The first season of The Punisher definitely placed it high on the list of best comic book TV series. It ranks well above the Marvel/Netflix collaborations we've binge-watched. We admit that it's no Daredevil, but in no way does it drag along the way other series do.
So what works and what doesn't work for The Punisher? Check it out, but it goes without saying that important moments from the first 13 episodes will be spoiled!
