The Punisher arrives on January 18. With the cancellations of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, it is most likely only a matter of time until Punisher receives the same treatment. These shows haven't exactly been consistent in quality, but overall I've enjoyed becoming immersed in the world of Netflix's Defenders. Clips of the ruthless fight that went down in said venue are interspersed throughout the conversation as Bendix questions Castle on his true motivations, saying, "It's nearly like you were happy for the excuse", in reference to the character's tendency toward savagery. Season 1, which released in 2017, left Frank in the wind, having maimed but not murdered his rival Billy Russo, and been cut loose by the powers that be. The Punisher Season 2 is basically the heavy-metal version of that character conflict. It's very un-Punisher like; he even meets a nice lady, although predictably, that doesn't last long. It's what he does.

In Season 2, Jon Bernthal returns as Frank Castle, who up until now has been living a quiet life out on the road.

"The Punisher is attempting to subtly reinvent itself in ways that make sense for the show's sophomore season".

Needless to say, Frank tangles himself up in the whole mess through a misguided but lovable desire to protect the innocent by executing as numerous guilty as possible. From there, we're reintroduced to Castle's former pal-turned-bad-guy, Billy Russo, who is out for revenge after Frank disfigured his face.

Knicks, Kings discussing Enes Kanter, Zach Randolph deal
It's unclear if this deal will materialize, but it would be a step in the right direction for the Knicks. Trading Kanter for Randolph doesn't seem like a good trade because Kanter is much better than Randolph.

Frank Castle is about to have one last hurrah (well, on Netflix at least - more on that later) and he's going out with a bang. Its portrayal of veterans as mainly degenerate dickheads looking for any excuse to do violent crimes remains problematic.

It's soon uncovered that Bendix suffered a similar tragedy as Castle - whose family was, of course, brutally slaughtered - as she tells him, "They killed everybody I've ever cared about".

The trailer begins with a young woman asking Frank Castle why he helped her at the bar, intercut with shots of The Punisher dispatching goons using everything at his disposal. He's the manliest man on the planet; his endless grunting and hollering causes lesser beings to crumple in fear (also, he punches them really hard). The whole thing will be past tense in just over a week.

According to critics, Season 2 is one of the best (if not the best) second outing for any of the Marvel shows on Netflix. Maybe it still will-who knows!
