Jack Ryan - Amazon Prime Video

From the few comments in here and on IMDB reviews I get the feeling season 2 may be significantly worse.  Going to judge for myself when I fire it up sometime this week.

 

Fwiw, I don't see a drop off. But I didn't think S1 was very good either and S2 suffers from the same things. On the flip side, it's also got the same things that work.

3.  Really odd nit to pick, but it really annoyed me to see the ambassador carrying a purse when she met Ryan and the Senator, and went to meet the President.  Ambassadors have bag people they don't carry bags or purses on official business imo.

See - No Purse...

Finished the season. It’s B+ TV with excellent production values. There are some questionable writing and plotting decisions but I enjoyed it. 

Kind of feel the same.  VERY glad this wasn't on Netflix or there would have been 4 filler episodes on a season that felt stretched at 8.

I liked season 2 enough to want a season 3.  But when I finished season 1, I wanted a season 2 RIGHT NOW

I think the let-down has more to do with season 1 being so good rather than season 2 being meh.

2 episdoes in - like it - although i am slightly confused i think

I had to watch the episodes 2 and 3 again to get a firm grasp on who was who and what was going on. I recommend doing that.

We are through Episode 3 of season 2 - I am enjoying it for what it is - a mash-up of: Strike Back, Bourne, Clancy

Having said that, there are a few nits I'd like to pick:

1.  What happened with Cathy Mueller?  We know in the Jack Ryan Universe, they get married, but no mention of her so far, and Jack was on the prowl with the German agent - that seems out of character.

2.  If Jack is so smart, why does he continue to do dumb things?  Hooking up with the German agent being near the top of the list, but walking blindly into the bathroom with the water over-flowing was equally dumb - given the circumstances.

3.  Really odd nit to pick, but it really annoyed me to see the ambassador carrying a purse when she met Ryan and the Senator, and went to meet the President.  Ambassadors have bag people they don't carry bags or purses on official business imo.

4.  Greer - deciding its a good idea to start chasing BGs in the street, and heading to the jungle with a heart condition.  James Earl Jones would have known better.

5.  Uber - WTF dude?  One job.

All of the above I agree with but the bolded, like damn dude just stay in the freaking bhote! I suspend disbelief pretty well and overlook most picking of nits but this one just super irked me. #######

Overall, liked it. I'm a sucker for this type of stuff. Wasn't as good as season 1 I don't think but accomplished what I needed it to :thumbup:

I thought the last 3 episodes of S2 redeemed it somewhat.  Enough that I'll certainly give S3 a shot when it comes out.  Plenty of cringe-worthy things happened but was still enjoyable enough for me.

WTF was the scene in Ep 7, where the car stalls and Ryan tells the guy to pop the hood. He lifts the hood without doing anything to the engine and then gets machine gun sprayed filling the car with lead. Partner blows bad guys up with a shoulder missile launcher and they just get back in the car, it immediately starts up and they drive off?

uhhh, ok.  So the key to fixing a stalled car is to shoot it up with bullets I guess.
