Do you mean a tv soft reboot of the movie as a season arc? That got me hard thinking about it.

Exactly what I mean, I am hoping we get that far. We are early still in Jack Ryan's career as a CIA analyst so far with the Amazon version and several years until he has his kid, they could totally get there with a few years with the CIA in Russia.

I need to watch the movie again.

I'm still itching for a TV/film adaptation of Rainbow 6. By far my favorite Clancy book.

x2, There was talk a couple of times over the years to get a movie, I remember John Woo was attached at some point. But I don't think A Sum Of All Fears helped that...

Rainbow Six has been a couple of years out for over a decade now. It's not happening.

Jack Ryan administration, John Clark getting introduced and might happen on Amazon version.

Watched Jack Ryan over the past 3 days. Really enjoyed it.
Man in the High Castle was the first Prime series I started, but didn't finish season 2. Now that I know another season is on it's way, maybe I'll revisit it.
Loved Bosch.
Tried You Are Wanted and American Gods, but neither captured my attention.

Also... they have Unsolved Mysteries. I had to watch a few of those to remind me of the shear terror that theme song inflicted me with as a child.

Is this thread a troll trying to sell me on Jack Ryan?

Everywhere I look on Amazon - Jack Ryan

The tape on my Amazon packages is now red "Jack Ryan" logos.

I finally caved and watched the full trailer, and it just seems meh. I just can't not see Jim Halpert - I can't see through his typecasting....

This video sums up my viewpoint pretty well

I believe Prime is only on Roku in the US, Amazon haven't released the app in Canada for some reason. Same with Crave - can't watch it on my Roku.

That and the fact that my family is pretty entrenched in the Apple ecosystem is why we finally decided to get an AppleTV. Have to say I miss plugging my headphones in to my Roku remote, though. That was a nice feature.

Yes you can. Probably the best $50 you can spend to turn your tv's into smart tv's. Firestick also has a good netflix app.

I wonder if the Matice character (CIA assassin guy) will turn out to be John Clark.

Finished Jack Ryan, and it's a solid meh from me. Production value was very high, but other than the budget this thing reeked of CBS primetime schlock. Plot holes galore, zero attention to detail, and a very rushed ending, likely because they spent so much time on characters that had absolutely nothing to do with the main plot

If this is an example of Amazon's best original programming then they're laughably behind Netflix in that department
