season 2 was a step down from the 1st season. season 2 had many unnecessary things going on at the same time, It should of been just been Frank vs Billy... John pilgrim, rich family and the girl were not needed, the girl and the little boy that Frank met we never even saw what happened to them or even Frank checking up on them. they could of at least had Billy and pilgrim team up they could of made it more interesting with something like that.

Complete lack of redemption. The very essence of the show borderlines vengeance and revenge. The good guys Punisher and madani are murderers and have no respect for 2nd chances. When madani nearly killed Russo's gf and Russo she was way out of line and should be considered a villain for stomping on the lives of 2 people who only wanted peace and redemption. That goes for punisher double for murdering Russo (in the end) when he was already dying and asking for help. This show sucks.

I love the movie with Thomas Jane so why not. I remember watching it before, but vaguely Love season 1. Season 2 was aight. Prefer season 1. Watched it a few days ago & it grew on me. Needs more gore.Tbh this show belongs on hbo or starz. It is what it is tho. Wish Karen and Him would interacted more in s2, hopefully one day we get a s3 or a movie. Jon Bernthal grew on me too. Had seen him in a few stuff before. Dk who he was til now & now I'm a fan.
