Reacher S02E07 480p WEBRip x264
New TV series streaming from Amazon, my wife and I watched two episodes on each of four successive nights. Sort of like movie nights. This is not high art, the writing has lots of humor, in real life Reacher couldn't get away with everything depicted. BUT ... it is a very entertaining series. Especially for those of us who enjoy seeing a smart, mild-mannered, well-spoken, well-trained, big tough guy put the bad guys in their places. Some simple thugs, some unruly prison inmates, some dirty cops. Ritchson is a real good pick for the role. (In an interview he said he gained 30 pounds for the role.) My only disappointment, after watching the opening scenes at least a dozen times now, is that bite of peach pie never reaches Reacher's mouth when the local cops enter the cafe. Reacher is an ex-military man, he takes a bus to the small Georgia town, walks to town to look up an old blues singer's home, immediately gets arrested for murder, but eventually works with local law enforcement to help solve the mysteries, and there are several. Most episodes are roughly 45 to 50 minutes long, set in a fictional Georgia town not far from Atlanta. Cast and characters are interesting. The story is not too deep but surprisingly interesting, just good entertainment. Streaming on Amazon. Season 2: As we would expect with a different book as the source, with a different set of supporting characters, season 2 has a much different look and feel to it. After the first three episodes my wife and I are enjoying it but the content has more violence, shootings and killings. I suppose to appease some cross-section of viewers but I don't find it as interesting or as entertaining. While season one is "superb" season two, so far, is just "decent entertainment." But we will keep watching, we like the character "Reacher." And we like the concept of watching good guys put away the bad guys.
