Perry Mason S1E1 Review: “Chapter 1”

Perry Mason

HBO decided to revive Perry Mason with an eight-episode miniseries, and we decided to do a dive into whether or not it was a good idea, how much different it is from the classic 50’s version our parents or grandparents knew and loved, and break down “Chapter 1.”

Punisher War Journal: S2E12-13

The Punisher

Here we are at the final chapter of Frank’s tale. Much has happened to the world around us as we land this series. The Punisher is as controversial as any of the Marvel properties at this point and Frank just cannot catch a break. After the Netflix season slump we were very worried if the story could stick the landing. Did it? Well, you’ll just have to join us for our final push to get out of New York.

Our next endeavor is still being considered, so please feel free to tweet @moze to recommend a new teevee series to unpack and recap. New or old, it doesn’t matter.

Punisher War Journal: S2E10-11

The Punisher

As we near the the final stretch, the boys wonder what might be happening to this season. Moze casts doubts, and shines a light of criticism over episode 10. These two episodes have a ton of narrative weight to move in order to wrap the season. It feels a bit like a modern day Game of Thrones, and that’s activating the Worry Meter as Frank’s world comes to a close.

The Punisher War Journal: S2E8-9

The Punisher

New York City is once again transformed into a battlefield, thanks in part to The Punisher. Granted, he did have some help from Russo and Pilgrim. Russo’s promise to build an army of disillusioned veterans comes to fruition almost overnight. Pilgrim takes a more reserved approach, as usual, placing a bounty on Frank and Amy’s heads that brings every two-bit criminal down on them. Doing so forces Pilgrim to confront a life he left behind years ago—one that he tried to remove from both his body and soul. Frank might not be the only force to worry about.
