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.


Oh good. I was afraid I was being a Heartless Nazi Prick because I thought his character is a cunt. To the point that I'm not at all sure I'm going to watch the whole thing.

And Greer as a Gay Muslim is not helping at all. Fucking political correctness is ruining everything.

Enjoyed season 1. Season 2 was just too unbelievable. I really want my bandwidth back from streaming it.

I enjoyed season 1, guess I'll skip this one now.

Pretty sure, but I may have his character confused with someone else.

Greer is not gay in the show, at least not that we have seen. The main "bad guy" assassin in S2 picks up a dude in a bar. But he only does it to use the guy as a patsy, sending him in to the cafe the next morning while he has the guy's sister.

Yeah, Greer wasn't homosexual, he was divorced.

He became a Muslim to marry a Muslim woman.

I think the writers confused Jack Jr. with Jack Sr. or at least blended the two. Anyway, I just finished it and I rather enjoyed it. The ending is a bit ridiculous.

Isn't Tiberium what we were mining in Command and Conquer? Smile

I'm 3/4 of the way through season 2.

LOTS more eye rolling from me and lots more suspension of disbelief required compared to season one.

They really need to work on their timelines. They're running around in Europe one night and South American the following day. Possible, but not plausible.

We had two related story lines running side by side, but were they on two time lines? If not, those guys were wandering around the jungle unsupported for several days with tiny little ruck sacks. Big Grin

Just finished watching S2. Had to force myself and it needed to go away. Sad.

If the characters weren´t named after Tom Clancy´s series of novels nobody would even bother.

I'm still slogging through it, but damn!

Among the many things that make no sense to me, the most senseless is Uber.

1. He's supposed to be such an experienced Operator, but he left the boat against orders and started a whole separate shitstorm.

2. When the team leader tells them to didi and he'll lead the bad guys away, Uber disobeys a direct order AGAIN and goes looking for him. Not only that, but the two bozos with him FOLLOW HIM!

Good writing.


I don't think his character is written well. The stories are engaging but Jack Ryan as a character, to me, is almost invisible, forgettable.

Not to mention a sitting US Senator is gunned down in an ambush, in a foreign country, and DC isn't spun-up, sending all sorts of big shots down there, while winding-up the military. Ryan would've been pulled out of country ASAP, debriefs would've been endless, the COS would've been superseded and augmented with more assets, and a LOT more wheels would've been put into motion.

I believe the only time such a thing happened, was CA Senator Leo Ryan was killed by Jim Jones' Peoples Temple tragedy at the airport in Guyana.
