Netflix’s The Punisher is a Brutal Humanisation of Frank Castle That Can’t Face Its Own Demons

The last time we saw Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, he’d fully embraced his Punisher persona and taken to doling out his personal brand of justice even after he’d killed the people directly responsible for the death of his family.

The Latest Netflix Price Hike Pushed Me Over the Edge

This morning, after about five clicks over the course of 10 seconds, I cancelled my Netflix membership. The company had started notifying people of its latest price increase——and I just couldn’t do it any more. In fact, price hike in mind, you should ask yourself if you need to keep paying for Netflix.

Uniquely weird and rubbish British TV is under threat, says Tony Hall, the current boss of the BBC.

We're five episodes into the latest instalment of the Star Trek television canon. Despite some weirdness about the Klingons appearance and the way they speak, I think Star Trek: Discovery has the potential to be the best Star Trek series put to air.
