It's out early! Off to a good start.



Pickin' stones and pullin' teats is a hard way to make a living. But, sure as God's got sandals, it beats fightin' dudes with treasure trails.

We've been tricked, we've been backstabbed, and we've been quite possibly, bamboozled.

One episode in. So far so good.

Definitely modeled after Clear and Present Danger.

Awesome. IMHO, it's the best Amazon produced show.

I love the show but I just can't seem to get used to John Krasinski without a full beard after watching 13 Hours (which i also really liked).

I'm only 3 episodes in but agree with Jerry. Clear and Present Danger redux.

Yeah, what's up with that? Jack Ryan is no John Clark or Domingo Chavez, but he isn't the indecisive, angst-ridden wimp they portray in this series.

I'm on the 4th episode....not as good as the 1st season I think. Rookie moves all around.

Finished it. Not impressed. Nowhere near as good as S1, IMHO.

I'm not sure 'ol Tom would be in favor of the re-writing going on.

The first Jack Ryan scene in Ep. 1 rewrites the bad guy Venezuelan leader Reyes as a "Nationalist swept into office in a wave to power", not a marxist/socialist Chavez/Maduro. The good guy, actually a woman, is referred to as an "activist academic". Saw the same thing in season 1.

On episode 3 now, and I keep waiting for Matice to say “dilly dilly!”.

I just finished it. It's a far cry better than any other mini-series currently airing, IMO. Not the best, but when I was scanning for things to watch, I kept coming back to it.

My wife and I have two episodes left

It’s watchable and certainly better than 98% of the shit on TV

Its still shit for such a host of reasons.

I won’t get into spoilers here but it’s beyond unbelievable in so many realms and facets

I am able to set that aside for the most part and enjoy it but occasionally the “oh give me a fucking break” leaks through

It's better that a lot of TV, but if you are a Jack Ryan series fan, you can see where they get a lot of the scenes.

Unfortunately it gets pretty disjointed and there are some 'leaps' between some of the middle episodes before really going off the rails of even 'suspension of disbelief'.

There is a lot of good there - good actors, good general plot lines, but it's just mixed up all wrong.

Chavez and Maduro were/are both socialists and nationalists. No contradiction there.
