In Season 1, Punisher raised hard questions about vengeance, justice, and why audiences enjoy revenge fantasy. How did season 2 measure up? Does Frank have any accountability those he puts in danger? And did the world need another Harleyesque plot where a therapist bangs her dangerous patient, and the writers try to make it sexy?
Two important notes- we had some technical difficulties near the end, and by the time we got Jessica back, Jacob had to leave. Apologizes if for any confusion, but we finished the discussion!
Second, during the podcast we talked about Wiscon- the awesome Feminist Sci-Fi/Fantasy con that happens in Madison Wisconsin, over Memorial Day Weekend. Not only is it an amazing event that you should try and come to- but we’ll be holding a Superhero Ethics Brown Bag Dinner Meet Up. Saturday, May 25th, from 5:30 – 7:30 we’ll reserve space in one of the conference rooms set aside for impromptu planning. Grab dinner and come for a meet up and discussion!
