Renewed for Season 2 today.

Good to see Disney and Netflix will continue producing new seasons for these shows despite Disney's plan to start its own streaming service.

I'm about halfway through the season. Love Micro, love the DHS agents.

The actual show, though... eh. There's not much in the way of an overarching villain, more of a conspiracy. It's an interesting new format for Marvel Netflix, and I admire them for it, but it's not personally working for me.

There mostly is. It's sort of like a somewhat better executed version of what they did in The Defenders... introduce a big bad (the main CIA spook with the bum eye in Punisher, Sigourney Weaver in Defenders) and have them around for most of the season, then kill them off and it's a showdown with the new main villain (proto-Jigsaw in Punisher, Elektra in Defenders).

Yeah, but the palpable threat for a few episodes isn't an individual identity, it's an idea. Which is interesting, but it's just not hooking me like Cottonmouth, Kilgrave, and Kingpin did.

It's good--the best Punisher we've had--it's just not entirely my wheelhouse.
