For those of you who know Krasinski from The Office though, watching him in this will be such an unfamiliar site. In The Office, he plays the relatively nerdy Jim Halpert; however, in Jack Ryan, he plays a secret agent (and he really pulls it off well).
However, the entire show is not just about Krasinski, and the rest of the cast is also strong. I would say that the show follows a relatively typical American drama/spy show storyline, but there are a bit more twists and turns than usual. It is also an interesting progression, as Jack Ryan (Krasinski) starts off as a desk analyst before being thrust into field action.
There are two seasons of the show, with each season having 8 episodes. I would say that season 1 is stronger, but both seasons are good. Season 2 is only getting 3.4/5 stars on Amazon Prime Video for some reason, but you can ignore the reviews for the most part (if you liked Season 1, I think you will also like Season 2). It is definitely a binge worthy show, so for all spy and drama fans out there, get watching!
Jack Ryan Recommendation Rating: 4
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
