Bumping this to see if anyone is watching season 2?
I've always been a fan of Clancy's written work, and especially the characters in the books revolving around Jack Ryan. I was pretty disappointed by the first season, as the Jack Ryan in the series has very little in common with the one in the books, or even the previous movie adaptations.
But, my wife likes it, so we started watching season 2, and are about 3 episodes in. Well, Clancy must be rolling over in his grave... Ryan is even more incompetent, and does stupid things that make little sense for the character. Greer is a selfish pinhead that has none of the gravitas of the original. Clancy's books and characters were well researched, and their actions grounded in reality. None of that is present in season 2 so far. There is a total ripoff of a scene from Clear and Present Danger... It's a shame that such wonderful source material has been reduced to typical TV nonsense.
