    I think we have a John Clark. Unless the blue-eyed SAD guy is someone else.
    " 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. "

    Krasinksi is big Dem in real life, so it doesn't surprise me that much. Despite that, I thought he did a good job in "13 Hours".

    Not really spoilers since it is in the first episode as set ups:





    That the antagonists would be complex and not just one-dimensional is a Clancy hallmark- look at The Archer from "Some of all Fears".
    I hope Ryan isn't a BoyScout like his wife was in Sicario. Greer is in a different place than in the books, almost a John Brennan (F no please) and a Saul (Homeland) character.

    Got through the third episode, which I agree seems to start to fracture the story line and slow down- but Clancy's stuff was like that. You'd have some story line that would hang out there until it crashed into the main characters.

    If episode four doesn't track better, I think the wife and I will pivot to Ozark and come back to this later.

    Very cool as a full movie. Who would be the ideal Clark? ...or in the other stories, the ideal Chavez?

    Watched episode 1 last night. I don't know the Clancy character beyond what I've seen in the movies. Decent acting and writing. Good action. Overall, good production value. I'm not "hooked" yet, but will continue to watch it to see if it can keep me interested.

    First episode - I enjoyed the USCG Jayhawk in the birthday party scene. Your tax dollars at work.

    That said, first episode would end in real life with four streaks from the Hellfires ending the rest of the series.

    Headlights and taillights.. I know they had to do it for TV, what are they going to show, a black screen? That was pretty weak.

    I thought the two guys were going to go full homo on the dock for a minute.

    What do you think about the guys playing the SF guys? Don't seem like your usual action movie extras.

    Anyone else think Cathy is a little chunky?

    This was made by Paramount, just like Yellowstone.
