    Not a fan of "Bosch"? Castle to me is at a break point. The new trailers look awesome. I was worried it as going to get "Lost".

    I'm cautiously optimistic, since everything involving Tom Clancy seems to have gone downhill fast since he died.
    " Political tags — such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    Hoping it turns out better than "Shooter". Was pleasantly surprised by "Condor".

    Supposedly AMZN has already ordered a second season.
    And if you look on IMDB there’s no John Clark character listed. Maybe they kept him off the credits.

    I have read all of the original Jack Ryan series and his random others like SSN. I have really enjoyed the Jack Ryan Jr series that his proteges have put together. I just have to remember that Jack Jr. isn't his dad, but rather doing his own thing in Ryan's massive shadow.
    Reads a lot, posts little.

    This one has me on the edge of my seat. It could be absolutely amazing, or they could totally screw the pooch. Needless to say, I won't be opening this thread again until I have seen the first few episodes to guard against spoilers.
    "SEND IT" happens to be my trigger words...

    I’m re-watching all of the movies in preparation.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

He did this several times and IIRC never once grabbed a gun, soured me on the movies. Hopefully this will be more realistic and not pushing SJW BS. But really I would rather see something done with John Clark, I mean come on loner, lives on an island and total no BS bad ass, lots more interesting to me than family man Ryan.
    Harrison Ford was going through a phase and refused to use a weapon on people in his films.

    First episode Down. Looks pretty good. Backstory and characters in place, some good action.
