Jack Ryan - the series
on Sep 4, 2018 at 9:04:54 pm

Amazon Prime has a newly released Jack Ryan series. Influenced by the Tom Clancy character but rebooted into the present day, the Jack Ryan is facing ISIS instead of the Russians. A few years ago there was a movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit which told a similar story about how he got started fighting bad guys. In series form they have a little more breathing room to develop characters. On one hand Ryan is a fish out of water (financial analyst PhD turned action hero) but he does have military experience, and presumably even analysts receive some field training.

We previously saw John Krasinski in the Michael Bay movie about Benghazi, so we knew that he could play action roles. This is like The Office meets any Liam Neeson movie - he spends some time in the office and going on dates, then finds himself in some hot zone but gets home in time for dinner with a few bumps and bruises.

We are 4 episodes in and loving it.

Saw the premiere episode, very nice. Somewhat predictable, but great execution. Looking forward to a marathon viewing over the weekend.

Not a spoiler, but it gets very interesting when Pam and Dwight show up!
