Violent (as Punisher should be)!

Re: The Punisher

It's brutal. But true to the character. I'm enjoying it at the moment. Seven episodes in. I like that the characters are more grounded and not typically their comic characters. Like Jigsaw. I imagine he will just become his alias by the end of the season.

I'm loving it too.

A welcome return to form for the Netflix Marvel adaptations.

Re: The Punisher

Just started watching this.  First episode was great.

Who the fuck thought that Shohreh Aghdashloo could act.  I hate her so much.  Her accent is just awful and she can't complete a sentence properly.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

She sounds to me just like every other Farsi speaker speaking English that I know... but don't worry, she doesn't get more than a few minutes screen time in the whole series.

Re: The Punisher

She has quite a following and was pretty good recently in Grimm and The Expanse. She got a lot of attention (not all of it complimentary) when she appeared in an arc of 24 back in 2005. But casting directors noted her, and the fact that she had a distinguished career in Iran before the Islamic dictatorship took over in the 1980s and most Iranian theatrical folk took off.
Despite, or perhaps because of the Farsi accented English she worked her way back up the food chain as an actor and works regularly. She probably could (or perhaps did) lose the accent but after 24 she was kind of typecast and the accent was a feature not a flaw.

I love that husky voice. She rocks on The Expanse. Diversity is the spice of life.

I am all for diversity, but that voice is not good.
She was truly awful in Expanse

Re: The Punisher

Literally anytime I see her I just think of 24 and hear her saying "Behrooz"

"city morgue, you kill em, we chill em"

100% agreed! I just cant stand the actor in whatever she does, it's disgusting. I keep imagine how she must have been a porn actress in earlier life and got her throat destroyed by to much deep throat.

Re: The Punisher

It is not the voice, or the accent. It is the complete tonedeafness of her pronounciation. I do not even know what it is called in engllish but she does not have a natural flow while speaking. Speech is about rhytm, and switching frequencies/intensity. She does not do that, or does it in the wrong places. It sounds really odd and is hard to listen to. That also happened with that fake language/accent in The Expanse, some of the actors sounded like (literal) speechimpedimented retards when trying to emulate that fake language.

yup, imagine if these people went to south afrika or jamaica, india, pakistan etc..  where quite funny english accents exists, they would prolly be like omg, i want out of here, my ears gona explode ;P I, like the way they made the Accents in Expanse, realy spiced it up (belter english) and Aghdashloo isnt really that bad, it gets time to get used to her but she is a really good actress in my mind. And what ive noticed, the people who usually complain about accents are american.

i agree that she has been a bit annoying in some shows but in punisher and expanse she has been awesome.

about to start rewatching this show, should be easy to binge in 2 days smile

Re: The Punisher

Series two drops in a few hours.

Hope it is as good as the 1st, there's not a lot of TV I am getting much viewing pleasure from in the schedules at the moment.

Re: The Punisher

My TV calendar is jam packed, have like 10 episodes today, among them The Orville, Star Trek Discovery, Punisher, Grand Tour, IO and others so i can't complain.

F**k me that was absolutely brutal.

Re: The Punisher

Oh my goodness, I felt goosebumps when I first heard this...

SPOILER Show
Amy - "What if Billy kills you?"
Frank - "I'm not the one that dies kid. I'm the one that does the killing."

Man, I'm going to miss this guy. Now that's The Punisher ladies and gents! The ONE and ONLY!!
Don't get me wrong, I loved Thomas Jane in Dirty Laundry, and Ray Stevenson's performance in War Zone was more legendary than the film itself, but Jon Bernthal as The Punisher is just, different. wink

Re: The Punisher

Will that be the last of The Punisher? The Disney tie-up to create a Marvel TV channel has seen Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist closed down, and it seems likely The Punisher & Jessica Jones (although there is one more season of JJ to be screened) will follow. Jon Bernthal is quoted as saying he s aware that the series may be cancelled.

A great pity - I suspect Disney will be chasing the family entertainment market, so nothing so dark and adult is likely to come from their productions.
