Interesting interpretation... I just thought they were giving the female viewership some eye candy.

Re: Reacher [Drama, Action]

Very much liked season 1, but season 2? Just awful… I think it is just the band of, erm, trusty sidekicks which just doesn’t work for me. I liked the dynamic between Reacher and Roscoe. And I totally hate the team in season 2 with to many „on the nose“ jokes and boring stereotypes.

Also it feels like for three episodes, the story is just not picking up.

First season was OK. Ritchson was a refreshing new take. Now after 2 eps of season 2, that shine has dulled for me. Alan lumbers woodenly through scenes, lines, even moves. I find myself wanting closer to Cruise, who was better if you hadn't read the books. Also, not a critique of Alan, but the show inclines to the homoerotic with his physique. Why not show more female skin? Not my cup of tea.

As a woman, it's nice to have a break from nearly naked women once in a while.

Re: Reacher [Drama, Action]

For me, Series 1 was pretty good (It had Kristin Kreuk!) But i'm afraid Series 2 is pretty dire.
I regularly fall asleep during the show.

I've got to be honest though, series 2 is much more representative of the books, which based upon the first (and only) books in the series I read, is just as awful.

Based upon the material, Tom Cruise (and/or his team) is/are a genius(s) based upn the 2 films he(they) knocked out.

I still enjoy season 2, but wonder if the show has become slightly less funny and a lot more brutal compared to season 1? cool Or does my memory fail me? big_smile

Yeah, in season 2 there's too much killing. It's like: when in doubt, kill. Preferred season 1.

Re: Reacher [Drama, Action]

The popular Amazon Prime Series has already been renewed for season 3, and production seems to be fully underway. Much like the shift between seasons 1 and 2, the future installment in the life of action hero Jack Reacher will likely send the former military operative on a completely new mission.

Curious to see in what direction they'll go in season 3!

Re: Reacher [Drama, Action]

The "team" in S2 didnt work at all for me. Felt like Chat GPT dialogue.

Hope they get back to basics. That being, brick shithouse Reacher saunters into a new town, unearths new and original ways to beat the shit out of baddies, solves the case, hits the road again.

Rock and roll ain't no riddle man.
