Season 2 of The Punisher finds Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) keeping a low profile until a troubled teen named Amy (Giorgia Whingham) gets hit-men after her and Frank reverts back to killing to protect her. Billy Russo (Ben Barnes) also finds himself recovering and doesn’t remember what he did and what happened to him, with Agent Madani (Amber Rose Revah) keeping a close eye on him.

Season two was a big disappointment for me, it was a big step down from the first season. These 13 episodes really need to be trimmed down by Netflix (though I doubt we’ll have anymore Marvel/Netflix shows). There is more action this season, but none of it wowed me.

Bird Box surrounds Malorie (Sandra Bullock) who is thrust into an chaotic world after a series of mass suicides. She must learn to survive in a world without seeing the creature that is causing all this mayhem and embarks on a journey blindfolded with two children.

Bird Box is a lot like A Quiet Place from earlier this year, though it’s more hardcore and mysterious. It’s an interesting film but it doesn’t have the same type edge of your seat nervousness of the latter film. I for one, wasn’t attached to the characters here as I was to the family in A Quiet Place.
