    For anyone who has seen season 2 of Daredevil, you're already familiar with this incarnation of the Punisher. If you haven't watched Netflix's Daredevil show, I highly advise against watching The Punisher season 1 until you finish seasons 1 and 2 of Daredevil. Plus, Daredevil is the best comic book TV show ever up until now. I'll have to finish this season of the Punisher to decide whether it tops Daredevil.

    Jon Bernthal is the Punisher the way Christopher Reeve was Superman and Robert Downey, Jr. is Iron-Man.

    I only watched the first episode (titled "3:00 a.m.") so far, and it easily lives up to the quality of the Punisher in season 2 of Daredevil.

    Episode 1 starts out very slow, because they have to introduce a new batch of characters and develop them a bit. While there is some action early on in the episode, most of the episode is quite slow, but in a good way. However, the episode doesn't end without some serious ass kicking by the Punisher.

    9/10 for episode 1.

    Fair enough. I just finished the second episode titled "Two Dead Men." I liked this episode more than the first one. The whole cat and mouse aspect of this episode was fun.

    9.2/10

    Episode 3: "Kandahar"

    Another solid episode, IMO. The reveal of what happened in Kandahar wasn't as big of an impact as I thought it would be, but I loved how it furthered the story between Punisher and the other guy in the present time.

    Some of the flashback stuff in Kandahar was a bit conventional, but there were parts of it that I liked a lot. But the whole back-and-forth between Punisher and the other guy in the present time was awesome. I also liked the ending of this episode a lot.

    Episode 4: "Resupply"

    I felt like this episode took just a slight dip in quality, but that's mainly due to the high level of quality of the first three episodes. However, it gets a lot better towards the end. There's also a pretty cool car chase scene, and the ending of the episode was pretty good.

    8.8/10

    Episode 5: "Gunner"

    This was the best episode so far in terms of story, action, cinematography, etc.

    Episode 6: "The Judas Goat"

    This was probably the slowest episode of the season, but I didn't mind that. I liked this episode quite a bit from a character development perspective.

    This is an episode that sets up things to come.

    As slow as this episode is, there is a BIG reveal at the end of the episode.

    9.4/10

    I wouldn't give The Punisher quite that high of a rating, but it was definitely an improvement over the more recent Netflix shows. Well worth watching.
