Well written, lots of action, and the production seems to give a nod to real tactics.
    Except for ACOGS on carry handles and finger grip face lowers from supposed CIA SAD guys? The armorer on this one gets a fail.

    Finished with Season 2 last night and overall I enjoyed it. While I agree with many of the things others have said here I watch shows like this for the entertainment. So I'm with KJQ bring on season 3.

    Seeing the promo of him with the rifle out a helicopter bugs me knowing how canon says Ryan is terrified of helicopters.

    I always wanted a Red Storm Rising movie (or mini-series!), but it’d be updated to 2020 and totally suck.
    Maybe a minor point. But tis not helicopters Ryan is terrified of. Its ALL aircraft... He was almost killed in a helicopter crash. In the books, I believe it was an accident. In this series its a a muslim kid who pos a grenade while being evacuated...

    I'm not even going to read any of this thread until I'm done with the season, but the first episode didn't really grab me at all. Hopefully it picks up the pace, which I'm sure it will.
    Medium speed. Moderate drag.

    Yeah the first episode was slow, but it does pick up.

    I didn't even finish Episode 8 of Season 2. It was ropey before that, but there was just too much suspension of disbelief for me to buy that writing. If you're going to use Clancy's name and universe, you need to do a better job than that.

    Meh, he's passed on... his estate, I'm sure, is happy to profit off his name.

    It's funny that a lot of the complaints about Jack Ryan can also be said about what they did with the Jason Bourne series.

    I don't doubt that the estate is happy getting money for the writers flogging Clancy's name
