Started watching The Punisher last night.

Seems pretty good so far.

He features heavily in Daredevil too, season 2 I think.

Correct. I THINK this series is set after those events?

It is. Daredevil isn't requisite viewing either, though the first half of the second season which had the Punisher in was probably the best portrayal we've actually had of the character.

I have seen all three DD seasons and enjoyed them all. Not seen any Luke Cage or Jessica Jones. Saw Iron Fist season 1, and also The Defenders.

Just finished the finale of Downton Abbey, a few years late.

That is, quite honestly, my favourite TV series of the past decade

Final Space season 2 is now on Netflix. Only watched a couple of episodes, it's not grabbing me the way season 1 did but it's still very funny. Some new characters and unfortunately KVN is back, I fucking hate that character.

He's better than the character who's way of speaking gets right on my tits. Or does it? Yes, yes it does. But how sure am I? Very.

Series is ok, though.

Finished season 2 Saturday night.
It's nowhere near as good as season 1. It feels rushed.
Season one had a free flowing, dudes adventuring in space, coming together and adventuring vibe.
Season two lacks that fun factor and feels flatter because of it. Like it's on rails from the get go.

Also, pretty sure that hating KVN means the character is perfect :)

Stumbled across purely by chance while browsing Netflix, but have been greatly enjoying Norsemen.

It's a little hard to describe, but the best way I can put it is that it's Vikings crossed with The Office. It's very funny if that kind of humour works for you.

Tried it a little while ago; seemed like a parody version of Vikings. Didn't appreciate the humour, so stopped after about 5-10 minutes.

The humour will either click with you or it won't, personally I enjoy the awkwardness of The Office. Some of the characters are great, like the unreasonably cheery slave (who you later learn was freed years ago but didn't want to leave), and the Brent-like chieftain's brother.

It's incredibly gory for a comedy though, not something that bothers me (in fact the lengths the push it to in places enhances the comedy element), but worth pointing out.

I'll be honest: I've never understood the concept of dark/black comedy. The whole concept of people being hurt/injured/killed doesn't amuse me at all.
