OMG! It feels like ages since I’ve been able to blog! Even now. I don’t really have time to be doing this, but I feel deprived. Life is just so crazy busy at the moment. I know I keep saying that but it’s true, and the only thing I have time for is TV after my daughter goes to sleep. I’m too exhausted for anything else. I’m not even reading– GASP! Shameful I know.
The worst part, I’ve been watching horrible TV! Bad movies, The Yummy Mummies of Melbourne, Marie Kondo, and Riverdale. Yes Riverdale officially qualifies as bad TV. I really enjoyed season 1 but now it’s just ridiculous! But that’s a whole post on its own.
You know what’s not bad TV? The Punisher! And thank God for that!
I’ll say it again if I haven’t already, I LOVE Jon Bernthal in this role! He is Frank Castle! I couldn’t stand the guy in TWD, but in this show I couldn’t imagine anyone else. The first season blew me away (no pun intended), and I am not surprised that it’s one of the few Marvel shows that escaped the axe.
Since I am watching this one with Hubby, I can’t binge as much as I’d like. Just a few episodes here and there. But I have seen most of season 2 and I am really enjoying it! My husband has a few issues with some of the more psychological aspects of the show, as he just wants to get on with the action, but I like it. It adds a dimension of realism to the show, and that increases the overall appeal. At least for me it does.
Quite a few new characters this season. A new villain who is as lethal as he is creepy, which is saying a lot, and of course the return of Castle’s nemesis, Billy Russo.
Defying incredible odds, Russo survives Frank’s savage retaliation, much to everyone’s shock and horror, especially Revah’s. Not only does he survive, he makes a much better recovery than anyone could have anticipated. Too good a recovery if you ask me. How can he be Jigsaw if he is still a pretty boy with a few scars? That is probably the only complaint I have about this season.
Still, season 2 has proven to be just as bloody, and just as entertaining as the first, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
What about you guys? Thoughts?
