    Anyone know if you have to watch all of Sons of Anarchy to start on Mayan's MC that just started this week?

    I enjoyed the full season of Jack Ryan. "Fun" is the best way I can describe it. They nailed it with 8 episodes, no fluff. Netflix should learn from this.

    There is something different about John Krasinski as an actor. Can't put my finger on it.

    The King in the Bud Light Dilly Dilly commercials has a recurring role.

    This was the first series I've watched on Amazon since recently becoming a Prime member .

    In all seriousness, I think the something is that he's not great at acting but he knows it.

    Haven't seen Jack Ryan (and probably won't) but in Quiet Place Krasinski did a great job of letting Emily Blount do all the difficult stuff. That is very smart of him to do, because he's not bad but he's not good.

    Just finished season 2 of The Good Place as it was just recently added to Netflix. Love that show. It's the only comedy I'm watching nowadays. 10/10 would recommend.

    Sharp Objects is better than I thought especially toward the end.

    Too much fluff can make a good series appear mediocre. Season 2 of Ozark was like this. If they kept it at 8 episodes, I would have enjoyed it much more.

    Jack Ryan did a good job of starting Ryan out as some desk jock and turning him into a bad ass. I prefer these shorter number of episodes.

    Jack Ryan was well paced. Not over the top action and not too many Walking Dead type lulls. I think I only disliked one episode but the DOLBY Vision UHD was on point. Plus I like it with no letterbox so my TV looks bigger when watching it hehehe.

    I binged Jack Ryan Season 1 which was entertaining (but not great), and Ozark Season 2 which was great.

    I've begun rewatching Mr. Robot in its entirety in preparation for the final season. I believe Mr. Robot is the best show on TV (including streaming services) at the moment.

    Shameless and Its Always Sunny in Philly are back on. I enjoyed Episode one of Sunny in Philly.

    For the Shameless fans, it will be Emmy Rossum/Fionas last season. It might be time to hang up this show.

    For the real TV junkies, The Last Ship is also back on.

    Episode 1 of the final season was the same combination of sappy and somber as always. Nine more to go.

    Anyone here watch the full first season of The Alienist? I couldn't get past episode 2.

    Watched and enjoyed Jack Ryan. Looking forward to a season 2.

    Just started and enjoying season 2 of Atypical. Clever writing and te lead actor is fantastic in the role, as is his younger sister. The parents... well, Michael Rappaport is OK in the role of exasperated dad... but Jennifer Jason Leigh... well, way overacts. Odd, she has been good in past movies. Its like she decided to be Jack Nicholson or Johnny Dep (or Winona Ryder in Stranger Things). She is the one really weak part of the cast.

    I couldn't with the Alienist either. . . seemed. . . .derivative and kind of boring. . . .
    I forget what other show it reminded me of .. but it was boring too

    Some shows I watch because their is nothing else on . . . i am going to have to stop this practice
    Wynona Earp comes to mind . .. . KillJoys is only slightly better . . .. . .
    I need to check these out

    Add me to the list of those that liked Jack Ryan.

    Wife and I binged watched it over the weekend. I kept referring to him as Jim in the show and it didn't help that his boss was named Jim.

    In regards to his acting, I think he does a decent job in these new roles. It's just I've seen the office so many times that whenever they do a close up to his face for reactions it still reminds me of the office as he gives almost the same facial expressions. But I give him credit that he's not annoying in his new roles.

    Another thumbs up for Jack Ryan. It’s slower paced, but at times it has the same thrills that 24 used to deliver when it was at its peak.

    Jack Ryan was pretty solid. Pretty refreshing after the dumpster dive that Homeland turned into.
