Can't wait to see what the one person Frank deliberately didn't kill does with his new lease on life.

Here's hoping he at least gets progressively gnarlier throughout the season.

So Season 2 of Marvel's Shooty Bang-Bang Man hit on Friday, and no cancellation yet!

Episode 1: Frank Castle is just hitting the road and trying to enjoy his life but he just keeps getting pulled back in, this time thanks to a teenager that seems to have gotten waaaaaay in over her head. Franks wastes no time getting back into the swing of things and Punishering up some baddies.

MVP of the episode: Ringo. RIP.

Episode 2: Frank ties the aforementioned teenager to a bed and gags her.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Yes it's so she won't run away, or be loud enough to get people to investigate their motel room while Frank sleeps off the, um, bullet wounds. It was still just a bit startling.

Meanwhile, Billy Russo may or may not have amnesia and really really loves wearing his favorite WD Gaster cosplay mask. And the second villain of the series is a major creepazoid, and may be a neo-nazi on top of a religious extremist, so I can't wait for the cries of 'inserting politics' to start.

So far it's, eh, it's not bad. Mostly I'm just here to watch Frank go about his business, but it feels kinda odd watching it and knowing the axe could fall on it any dang day now.

First episode thoughts:

Itís weird to see Frank beating up and stabbing ladies.

Why did Bad Guy send two dozen armed goons to kill a teenager? Because Frank needed a bunch of people to kill.

No Micro this time?

Thatís it. Not much to chew on for the premiere.

I really enjoyed the first episode and I hope the fight scenes continue to be this good. They were the high point of the first season for me, too.

Yeah I'm not expecting it to last but the first episode was a good one hour action movie.

I'm 5 episodes deep now and I think this is gonna be fairly high on my rankings list? The action part took a sidestep for more character development, but imo there's enough different characters to make it not feel like it's spinning its wheels. It's also got this neat role reversal where Frank is the one giving advice about being at peace with yourself.
