Man, Shane’s in Everything, Huh | November 24, 2017

by Joe

After Shane/Jon Bernthal left The Walking Dead, I thought “That sucks for his career, the show’s just getting started.” Well, turns out his career’s just fine because the guy is in everything :D

Wolf on Wall Street: “Oh, hey, look. Shane’s a drug dealer.”
Fury: “Ha! It’s Shane! Playing the bad boy again!”
Sicario: “I think Shane is following our movie selections.”
Daredevil: “Nice! Shane’s the Punisher! Great casting.”
Wind River: “Okay, no way Shane is in this. Oh, there he is.”
Baby Driver: “Bad boy again!”
The Punisher: “Obviously.”

For the record, I really like Jon Bernthal and I think he’s a good example of typecasting. He may not have the greatest range but everything he’s been in has fit his look and character. I just finished The Punisher on Netflix and while I’ve only seen Daredevil, Luke Cage, and one episode of Jessica Jones, I’d say that The Punisher is my favourite Netflix Original Marvel series. It’s nice to see a Marvel franchise that is all guns and punches – no powers, no crazy tech, no aliens. Yes, yes, I know – The Pocalypse is definitely spinning out of guns-only territory but at least we started with powers and tech and we kept building from there :D

Hope you’re all enjoying Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and all that! Have a great weekend!

Ooh, now that Joe is unable to do anything, I hope the kids are able to triumph against Simon instead of having the Calvary charging in every time. Great work with the series so far!

That ending reminded me… Have you played “OneShot” Author Joe?
If you haven’t you should, it’s pretty great and emotional. (Also on sale right now)

would be nice if aaron and whats-her-face kicked simons ass, but I’m not counting on it.
Bernie and his alterbodies could woop him if simon is a mind specialist only.

Things that could be said every episode:
“The plot thickens…”
“Dun dun DUN!”
“Oh. Mah. Gawd!”
“Shit’s getting reaaaal!”
“Fuckin’ awesome.”

I’m on the edge of my seat!!! Also, looking at Bernie and Joe, you really seem to like the whole “Mind controlled person forced to attack own loved ones” trope, don’t you? Sure, great, awesome, I LOVE having my heart broken [/sarcasm]
