Even the bad guy, and he IS nasty, is portrayed somewhat sympathetically (victim of French racism) :lol:

Shocking, clever plots with TMI

Did you notice any leftist/SJW nuggets interjected into the story line?

Have no idea if they will do more seasons.
I hope they do.

Yes.

--The terror mastermind was the product of racism and denied opportunity. Islam had nothing to do with it.
--Israel killed his parents in a war crime
--The French SWAT team boss is female
--Every single doctor at the Epidemiology branch is female
--The future head of the CIA is a converted muslim

Yup, I noticed some of the same things.

While Tom Clancy created some of the original characters in this tv series, he did not create these plots. This tv series is not adapted from any of his books, so the the director, screenwriters have quite a bit of artistic license to do what they want. Also, Tom Clancy is dead so he can't 'frown' or object to what they are doing to his characters. The rights to use the characters were sold by his family estate and they may (or quite likely may) not care about that.

I just noticed on Wikipedia that in April Amazon greenlighted a 2nd season.

and this:

Quote:
Jack Ryan was filmed in multiple locations. On May 10, 2017, Krasinski was spotted filming his scenes in Washington, D.C.[24] For the next several days the TV series was also shot in Maryland, Virginia,[25] Quebec,[26] and Morocco.[27] Production for season two is set to begin in the summer of 2018 in Europe, South America, and the United States.[1]



Sounds as if the "French" scenes in season one were filmed in Canada.... :lol:

I watched this. I was confused that the arab terrorist guy was portrayed as the bad guy. I'm not sure how to reconcile his attempts at murdering thousands of innocents as somehow bad.
