    Seems like an odd choice for Jack Ryan. I'm still waiting on my Rainbow Six movie though.

    Oh crap. I saw this thread pop up and thought I missed the release. Totally forgot to expect a lot of trailers and stuff from tonight. Still not sure how I feel about Krasinksi, but I don't give a crap. Gimme my Clancy adaptations!

    I burned through this all yesterday. Krasinkski was fine and I really liked it overall. Only 8 episodes did not feel like enough though. Season 2 is apparently tentatively planned for 2020.

    The series reviews I've seen say it's neither bad nor good, but it's adequate.

    I liked it but I thought it was too short.

    8 is probably fine, how many netflix series that are 12 eps just run too fucking long, every single netflix marvel series + a ton of others.
    I'd rather have better pacing over 8 eps than have it drag.

    I'm 3 episodes in. It's...fine? They kinda trying to retcon the books but in today's age? Still Jack Ryan, still hurt back in Marines, still meeting a girl named Cathy. Still works for Jim Greer. Having trouble getting over the visual of "Agent Jim Harper", I keep waiting for the name Pam to come out of his mouth.

    I’m with you, I generally prefer 8-10 episodes, I’m mainly just shocked at how long they advertised this thing. When I mentioned to a buddy that it was finally out he said he thought it was on season 2 or 3 by now.

    I enjoyed the season. Action was decent and storyline wise suleiman was a pretty good villain.

    Jim Krasinski kinda ruined this for me. He really doesn't fit and he doesn't have the range.

    The dude who played Suleiman was awesome.

    The story was OK until the incredibly rushed and idiotic ending. What a waste of a villain. Huge inconsistencies through the season, Wendall Pierce was decent but basically just played Bunk again.

    Just to warn people, season 2 is straight up bad.

    I didn't have any real issues with season 2 thought it was fine.

    Pretty sure it reviewed well too

    Man, is this show a waste of time? I like Jim, and I'm always down for super spy stuff, but I like to pretend my time is valuable.

    I enjoyed season 1. The villain was well written and nuanced. He really makes the whole thing.
    The season 2 story and characters almost felt dumbed down, which is kinda hard to do with a Clancy story, but there it is. Better off watching Narcos.

    Season 2 was absolutely "meh"

    It's worth watching while doing other stuff imo
