    Love the books (the earlier ones in particular) but have no idea what that's about based on the trailer! Not great marketing anyway.

    Good trailer to be fair.

    Not sure about the lead but Bunk is in it so I might give it a watch.

    A Rainn Willson cameo in the CIA office would be nice :p

    Think I saw James Earl Jones there in the first trailer which is a nice touch as he was the original Admiral James Greer in the movies :)

    Nice to see Wendell Pierce's stock rising over the last few years.

    Renewed for a 2nd season three months before season 1 is to air.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,581 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Shockingly just after John Krasinski makes over 1000% on A Quiet Place :D

    New Trailer.

    4th of July teaser.

    I'd renew it after the trailer alone to be honest

    ah ffs, these are the longest coming shows, why am I following this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,582 ✭✭✭ Marcusm


    Am I right in thinking this has only the slimmest connection to the Tom Clancy books? The character seems to be more an amalgam of Ryan and Kelly/Clark rather than any type of faithful character. I’d prefer to see a Clark branded series or a movie version of Without remorse.


  • Registered Users Posts: 66 ✭✭✭ stormthecastle


    Looks like they are following the movie Ryan.

    Drops tomorrow and is 8 episodes long.

    That's my weekend sorted then


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,150 ✭✭✭ marklazarcovic


    Half way through it ... It's quite good


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,374 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    Managed to watch 1 episode before the kids arrived, would it be bad form to dose them in Calpol so I can get to the second episode straight away? I forgot what a big fan of the books I was, every character is almost perfect to the book, once I get Robert Zane out of my head that is.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,581 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Episode 1 was good!


  • Registered Users Posts: 682 ✭✭✭ fmul9798


    Long time since I read the books, and loved the movies (well, Ford and Baldwin..). After episode 1 and 2 I have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Now I'll stay away from this thread to avoid inevitable spoilers as it could be a while before I get to see more.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,150 ✭✭✭ marklazarcovic


    Binged it last ngt.. very good first season, missed a trick near the end where it could have been superb ..still,a worthy show to follow


  • Registered Users Posts: 626 ✭✭✭ Mister Gooey


    And in Dolby Vision! First 2 episodes, very good.


  • Moderators, Regional Midwest Moderators Posts: 23,374 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Clareman


    What an excellent first season, not overly impressed with wrapping up the whole storyarc in 1 season but I guess it has to be done in today's TV. 1 bug bear of mine is Suliman's backstory, ok he's French but how did he get the money to setup the compound and the 9 million to fund stuff and what was he doing on the road out of Iraq after the war?

    this is ridiculous, mr perfect, who all the women are after,
    finds the guy so easily.
    ...switches from I'm an analyst to Im a marine, so many cliches and stupid decisions and terrible dialogue. (just finished watching ep 2), but I'll binge it all.

    could probably have been told in more eps to make it more believable and less rushed.
