Well, at the end, I was left wondering; how the fuck can he take so many blows to the head and still be alive. They do try for realism and everyone else seems to go down with a few hits but he's punched, kicked, skull stomped etc. His skull would have to be made of adamantium ffs.


It's not uncommon for TV and movies to exaggerate how easily someone dies or is knocked out from a headblow. Remember how, the entire cast of Lost had been knocked out by minor strikes to the head with rifle stocks?

I can forgive the occasional swing in the other direction.

I would tend to think when Jigsaw wakes up next season at some point. He is only going to have fragments of his memory that will come together. He may not even know who Frank Castle is.

I really like the actor that plays The Punisher. Saw the first episode before work this morning. Wasn't much of a story, but I enjoyed it.

I hate it so much when television pretends that people have a little button on their head that if you hit it it knocks them unconscious. You can't just go around smashing people in the skull with blunt objects! People will die or suffer long-term brain damage, not take a little nap!

The guy has a face that looks like it was chiselled out of stone. Superb choice in the role for both looks and acting chops.

Going to finish this today, and can recommend it to everyone. Solid action, good story, top acting. Probably the best Netflix Marvel show.
