What episode are you up to? Starting with E5 the story line starts breaking off from being soley about Punisher and is when things really start picking. Around 7-or-8 the pace picks up and, surprisingly, it circles back in a big way S1.However I will tell you the acting, directing and production quality are still consistently good - So after you get through with season 1 watch season 2 - you may like it even more than season 1 ?
The first four episodes were, admittedly, a bit boring to me. Yeah, it laid the foundation for Punisher and went into the relationships between Murdoch, Foggy, & Karen, but, man, some of the pacing is agonizingly slow.
Having watched the whole season (yes, I missed some sleep this week ) my biggest complaint is actually the cinematography. In S1 somebody was in love with yellow lighting, this season I wish the yellow lighting was back because so many scenes were so dark that I couldn't see what was really going on! I ended up having to adjust the TV contrast and rewinding in some crucial scenes to make sure I didn't miss anything. Between that, the artificial film 'grain', Netflix's audio being way lower than broadcast TV, and, the last couple of episodes automatically consistently turning Chinese sub-titles on my X-Box 360 I came away with not enjoying the experience of binge watching the season.
