    Jack Ryan -- SPOILERS!

    I'm kinda disappointed that they kinda went WOKE. It wasn't unbearably woke, but c'mon. Venezuela isn't socialist, it's a far right dictatorship in that world. And the "people's choice" is the SJW. They just had to make the premise a woke fantasy.

    But, the eye rolling bull**** aside, it was still a good season.

    Huh? I watched, and enjoyed season 1. I have yet to watch season 2. So I guess I'll find out what you're talking about soon enough.

    I just started watching and noticed the same crap. You forgot it is a "female" SJW.

    So far it hasn't ruined it for me, but it does get old.

    Yeah, was rather obvious.

    Also I understand They have to take some liberties with reality to get the storyline going but I found it particularly unreal and annoying that the supposedly top-notch boat driver runs off and gets lost in the jungle, apparently with no plan to rendezvous at an alternate location in case SHTF. That a couple other things seemed way over the top but c’est la hollywood.

    I got 6 episodes in on the 1st season and had to stop watching. This is not Tom Clancy at all. He's rolling in his grave.

    Just started to watch Season 2, and I had to pause at the opening credits, when it showed his dog tags from the USMC. The Clancy character was Roman Catholic, the TV show character is now No Preference.

    I watched part of season one and couldn't figure out why they even called it Jack Ryan. Why use the names and toss the rest. The movies were just as bad. Screw em. Follow the books or come up with your own names....

    Just got through Season 2, Episode 1, and this is like a re-write of 'Clear & Present Danger'. I can understand changing the Venezuelan government's political leanings to make it less like contemporary events, but this just feels lazy.

    I read a lot of Clancy stuff too, in fact some of the books that I brought over with me were his: Rainbow Six, The Bear & The Dragon, Red Storm Rising to name a few.

    **edited to add**
    At this point if you are taking liberties with the source material why not have it as in the Jack Ryan universe, but a family member who followed a similar career path?

    I liked it. Both seasons. Let’s face it, the books are old and outdated at this point. It’s the character they are building and imo John krasinski makes a good Jack Ryan. A bright analytical mind who’s not afraid to get dirty when the need arises.

    Then again i very very rarely hate on any movies. They are there to entertain. They’re not going to change my life.
