    I have trouble focusing on anything other than Jack Ryan's nose at the moment.

    I am enjoying it, but do also find it rather annoying.

    Find it very dumb in places and it's ridicuous how many times the bad guys get away from impossible situations.

    Also find the lead, John Krasinski, lacking in charisma and find him a bit bland. It's also laughable how he takes over situations when he has absolutely no authority, but still, it is an enjoyable watch, with just about the right level of intrigue and action.

    Entertaining enough to warrant a look for anyone who hasn't seen it I would say.

    The advert makes it look like a bit of dodgy dialogue chucked in to link the explosions together.

    8 one hour episodes.

    Certainly not as good as the early series of Homeland, but it does kind of have a similar feel to it.
