    First episode is out and I find it funny that no one here gives a shit.

    I gave it a look. It doesnt spend a lot of time giving you the back story. I did see the movie, I think, but I recall nothing of it so the alternate America setting is tricky to get my head round. Superheroes are a thing but they're just regular humans in silly costumes and they work with the police seems to be the setup. Meanwhile people in ink blot masks are involved in some kind of terrorism. I thought the guy in the ink blot mask was one of the good guys? Harsh to make a call after 1 episode but that episode didn't give me any characters I was interested in following or introduce much of a story. Bit too sombre for my liking to boot. Budgeted though and moderately stylish.

    I've heard so many terrible things about it that I have zero interest. What sucks is we'll have to wait another 10 years for a chance at a good adaptation.

    Didn't you just say a week ago that you found it funny that nobody here gives a shit?

    I am not in any way trying to defend this show but maybe they are trying to draw a parallel to the cops and military that have appropriated the Punisher's skull? Looking up to a vigilante isn't the best look for supposed peacekeepers.

    I think it's just bad writing and trying to pander.
