Watched the new Punisher series
Jon Bernthal does make a really good Frank Castle. I generally liked the direction the story took, which seemed right out of Garth Ennis’ Punisher MAX series that featured Micro. I did find it interesting and kind of cringey that the only non-law enforcement/non-military person to advocate for guns (besides Karen Page, who if I recall correctly was from Daredevil?) is depicted as a fat white anti-semitic “those damn millenials!” type who also practices stolen valor. Was Netflix really so afraid of people condemning a vigilante series as “NRA Propaganda” that they had to write him literally saying ‘the Jews run the internet!’ and spouting other conspiracy theories while wearing an NRA shirt or hat?
Didn’t detract overall as he did die, but it seemed cartoonish in an otherwise realistic series.
