 THE PUNISHER MUST BE PRETTY FAMILIAR WITH THE LATIN SAYING, “REMEMBER YOU WILL DIE.” He’s wanted death for the whole season and before. Ever since he woke up after his family was killed, he’s been kind of a ghost. He doesn’t take the saying the way it’s meant, though. It’s supposed to tell you to live life while you still have it. Until the last episode, The Punisher has had a deathwish all through this season. In the last episode, he finally decided he wanted to...

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 11: “Danger Close” Recap

THE SHINING LIGHTS OF NEW YORK OVER THE WATER are the background for several homeless people warming their hands over trash can fires.

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 10: “Virtue of the Vicious” Recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 10: “Virtue of the Vicious” Recap

Things are coming to a head in The Punisher. I think this show is well-paced. Netflix didn’t have any long periods of inaction, and they didn’t go crazy with unrelenting action. But this episode is action-packed.   One of Senator Ori’s Anvil guards hears a knock on his apartment door. Lewis’ voice calls, “New York Bulletin.” The guard says from the other side of the door, “I don’t need a subscription.” and incautiously walks right up to the peephole. Lewis shoots him in the face...
 
The Punisher Season 1, Episode 9: “Front Toward Enemy” Recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 9: “Front Toward Enemy” Recap

I know what “Front Toward Enemy” means from reading action novels. There’s going to be some real opportunities for death and destruction in this episode for sure.   Dinah is still in shock. She’s just lying in bed, turning around. The shot keeps cutting to let us know that time is passing. As she lies in the bed, a single tear drips down the side of her face. She really liked Sam. I can’t relate, but I get that having another (sort of) partner die would be traumatizing. Just not Sam. He was so...
The Punisher Season 1, Episode 8: “Cold Steel” Recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 8: “Cold Steel” Recap

Things are heating up in this Netflix series.   Once again, the episode begins with running water, but this time it’s a far cry from Lewis washing his bloody hands and face in the sink. It’s Billy Russo beginning his daily hygiene routine. Russo uses sprays and creams to get his hair just so. He shines his shoes and gets his whole wardrobe exactly right.   Full episode gallery   Russo only gets creepier. Just wait until the end of the episode   He walks through the halls of a medical facility...

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 7: “Crosshairs” recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 7: “Crosshairs” recap

This episode has a ton of action. And we see the way the Lewis storyline is going, and it’s pretty disturbing. Lewis is washing O’Connor’s blood off himself in a sink. He uses his very bloody hand to wipe his face and mouth. That’s super gross, Lewis. Come on. Of course, he did just murder someone, so I suppose a lack of hygiene is hardly his biggest problem. Still. Pretty disgusting.   Full episode gallery     Lewis is having a bad day, but O’Conner is dead so… his day is...
The Punisher Season 1, Episode 6: “The Judas Goat” recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 6: “The Judas Goat” recap

Important things happen, but overall this episode gives us a breather. I like a show that gives me a change of pace. When the real action starts up again, it’s much more meaningful.   In a weird fever dream, Castle is being welcomed home by his family and David Lieberman’s family, but they’re all in David’s home. Frank is happy until someone comes to the door, and he finds himself zip-tied to a chair. Masked soldiers march in theatrically and execute both families as he screams.   Full...
 
 
The Punisher Season 1, Episode 5: “Gunner” recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 5: “Gunner” recap

I’m really liking the unpredictability of The Punisher and the other Netflix Marvel shows. I’m used to cues and tropes showing me where the plot is going. Those are pretty absent from this show. Generally speaking, that’s a sign of a good show. Unlike most plots on TV, Netflix is taking their time and letting this story develop at its own pace.   Full episode gallery Agent Madani is already up and running   Dinah was left bleeding on the asphalt at the end of the last episode, but she’s...
The Punisher Season 1, Episode 4: “Resupply” recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 4: “Resupply” recap

This is a show that just gets better as it goes. I’m becoming more invested in this show than I expected. Lewis, who almost killed his father accidentally last episode because of his severe PTSD, digs a giant foxhole in his backyard. He rings it on three sides with sandbags, and half covers it with a tarp. With his assault rifle next to his head, Lewis covers himself with a blanket and goes to sleep. And with this depiction of the reality and extreme suffering mental illness can cause,...
