    @Dragonlordxxxxx the clip that shows Frank teaching his daughter how to play guitar, we hear him say,

    We swear to avenge them

    No joy shall be tasted

    The harp shall be silent

    The maiden unwed

    Our halls will be mute

    And our fields shall lie wasted

    'Til vengence is wreaked

    On the murderer's head.


    Any idea who or what Frank is quoting? The lines about harps and halls make me think of Celtic or perhaps Viking myth...

    Did some googling and it seems it's from a poem by Irish poet Thomas Moore - "Avenging and Bright."

    Avenging and bright fall the swift sword of Erin
    On him who the brave sons of Usna betray'd! --
    For every fond eye he hath waken'd a tear in
    A drop from his heart-wounds shall weep o'er her blade.

    By the red cloud that hung over Conor's dark dwelling,
    When Ulad's three champions lay sleeping in gore --
    By the billows of war, which so often, high swelling,,
    Have wafted these heroes to victory's shore --

    We swear to avenge them! -- no joy shall be tasted,
    The harp shall be silent, the maiden unwed,
    Our halls shall be mute, and our fields shall lie wasted,
    Till vengeance is wreak'd on the murderer's head.

    Yes, monarch! though sweet are our home recollections,
    Though sweet are the tears that from tenderness fall;
    Though sweet are our friendships, our hopes, our affections,
    Revenge on a tyrant is sweetest of all!

    Hmmmm im gonna watch cause I love The Punisher, but these mixed reviews have raised my levels of worry regarding Netflix' approach to these Marvel series.The more gritty, serious style was a welcome divergence from the films at first, but now they are just as engrained in the generic storytelling and generic plot devices as the movies are.

    We'll see, but thats kind of what im expecting unfortunately.

    Sounds like they have the same issues of all of the other Marvel Netflix shows. Their seasons are too long. I don't know why they don't cut down from 13 episodes to like 8-10 depending on the material.

    Thank you, DL. Good work:cool:

    As I said, the line, the Harp shall be silent made me think of Celtic legend. The Minstrel Boy is a famous Irish song, and was a particular favourite of Scots- Irish who fought in the Civil War. It includes the lines,

    The Minstrel Boy to the Wars has gone
    In the ranks of Death you'll find him
    His father's Sword he has girded on
    And his wild Harp slung behind him!

    "Land of Song", vowed the warrior Bard
    "Though all the world betrays thee
    One Sword still thy rights will guard
    One wild Harp still will praise thee!"

    The only one that was in existence at the time.

    The Lundgren film sucks btw and the skull from the Jane film is the best IMO.

    Plates too (for the IBA)? Neck and groin protectors? Woodland or coyote brown?
    Is the kevlar the old PASGT with 1 strap or the lightweight helmet with the plastic buckle and better protection?

    Neck and groin, I have plates but they are too big to fit. They weren't the normal plates that were issued.

    Lightweight one with the plastic buckle.
