    I do. When there is absolutely nothing of value going on on the screen. Half of that show is utter filler and only suitable for people who've really got little better to do with their time.

    If they'd make a Garth Ennis-type Punisher run, it would be worthwhile. This is just tedious, drawn-out, pointless and a waste of everybody's time.

      SO it goes for all of television.

        It's getting way worse, honestly. Particularly on Netflix. Mainly because of some sort of mantra that shows now need to be LONG and ENGAGING and EMOWSHUNAL and shit. Unfortunately, television writers are generally of sub-Dostoyevskian talent and thus they just pad episode lengths with pathos and irrelevant drama that nobody in their right mind would give a shit about.

        If Punisher's episodes were like 30% shorter, it would be a far better show. Could cut out a whole bunch of boring shit that way and focus on what actually matters: kicking ass. Because Castle (and all superheroes, come to think of it) are cardboard cutout characters and any attempt to make their story arcs DEEP and EMOWSHUNAL comes across as vaguely sad and embarrassing.

          Whatever you do, don't binge watch "This is Us". One episode a month is almost too much for your empathic core, more than that, you might as well eject it into space, or you'll be a slobbering mess for a whole season.

          Remember, DVR lets you WAIT, as well as binge. I don't think people realize the advantage of saving, versus consuming mass quantities. But hey, it's your mind, not mine.

              That 10th Planet sendup was hilarious, I shared it with staff the other day.

              I disagree on Paul Reubens. I think his character went from overacted to just right to "back to Pee Wee."
              Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

                  Well...I liked it lol. I think what you describe as the best parts of Castle in the comics is actually poor writing. I love the action, but I need a REASON, you know? Might be worth pointing out that I actually watch the set up scenes in porno. I NEED to know WHY the step siblings are banging, or I get bored/ flaccid.

                    "They fight a lot on their back because they're Flat Earthers, and they stay flat to the ground". Bravo (pun intended).

                    Weird science indeed, Master Ken.

                      The step siblings are banging because they are traumatised Vietnam war veterans and mafia goons killed their family. That's your fucking motivation.

                      Want something deeper? Watch something that is not based on old right-wing wank fantasy comic books.

                        You realize that the Punisher started out as a Spiderman villain, right?

                          Vaguely. Old superhero comics are dogshit, although I did enjoy the extreeeemely 80ies vibe of the old Punisher comics.

                          "Muahaha, I just did some cocaine! I am now SUPER EVIL and can shrug off machine gun fire! Kids, don't do cocaine!"

                          ...which kinda made me want to do some cocaine, but yeah, really 80ies.

                            I... The fuck? Some of the best superhero comics to date are from that era. Sandman. Watchmen. Uncanny X-Men. Batman: The Killing Joke. At this point I am fairly certain your opinion on this topic belongs in the trash.

                              Was more referring to 60ies and 70ies era Spiderman and whatnot, which is indeed quite dire when read today.

                              Not that the competition's much better, though. Being "one of the best superhero comics" is a bit like being voted the best-dressed rapist.

                                Why are you bitching about a show based off of comic books being not to your liking if you think that comics themselves are shit? What were you expecting? A show that wouldn't be like Punisher MAX? What the fuck did you want? If you want a normal vigilante flick just go back and watch the Death Wish movies or something. Fucking hell.
