A new series has hit Amazon Prime:

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DLDLD8F/re ... ime_member

While the characters (Jack Ryan, James Greer, Cathy Mueller (the future Mrs. Ryan) are from the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan canon, I don't believe this story/series was written by Tom Clancy.

I binge watched the first 3 episodes so far.

The story moved along, I found it interesting.
Looking over the reader comments, some people enjoyed it, while others hated it.

Some commented that the writers behind this were interjecting leftist/SJW nuggets into the story line and I can't say that I would disagree with that. So as not to provide any spoilers, I will say nothing further about those nuggets and let those of you who watch this to decide for yourself and comment on it.

This season 1 is 8 episodes in total.

I've finished watching the rest of the uploaded episodes.

I will now say that (IMHO) there are some things that were interjected into the plot as some of the viewers in their comments alluded to. (I still won't go into the specifics now as I will let others watch and comment first. I am up for replying to anyone who does post regarding this).
