    To provide a way for the terrorist's wife and kids to get away without it seeming like Deus ex Machina when a bomb just drops from the sky.

    So if "almost nobody has seen it", then it's ok to steal the major scene? Drone pilot with black female co-pilot bombs a guy to prevent a rape. I just hate tv writers who steal from movies because they don't have enough original thoughts.

    But they could have done that with just that scene. I bet he’ll reappear next season.

    Sorry, I should have said "If you are a fan of Tom Clancy books and want a series based on his books to remain true to form, then this show is not for you.

    I think if they hadn't attached the Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan name to it, I would have liked it a lot more. As it was attaching the name set certain expectations, which were not met.

    How do you know they stole the major scene. Do we know they even saw that other movie? Is it not an original thought if you didn't see what you are claiming is stolen? Could just be coincidence.

    I mostly agree with this, but also realize that not nearly as many people would have watched the series without the Clancy characters' names attached. It would have been just another Amazon original.

    They've changed Harry Bosch a bit from the novels - especially the other major characters - but I've really enjoyed that series.

    Your statement reminded me of an episode of Last Comic Standing. A contestant told a joke from the movie "Boiler Room" verbatim, judge Joe Rogan called him out on it, and the other two judges and the comedian claimed complete ignorance. They basically said it isn't stolen if you hadn't seen the movie, and voted him through to the next round. It was probably the best joke of his set, and I had the exact same thought as Joe ("he totally stole that from Boiler Room") as soon as he told it.

    I do agree that it would not have gotten as many views or free advertising by attaching Clancy's name.

    I've not watched Bosch or realized it was a series of novels. May have to give it a shot.

    Yeah, I finished it this evening. Pretty easy one to binge. There isn’t a discussion/spoiler thread, right?

    From episode 1 I think
    You work on top secret things and you notice a woman who speaks many languages in a bar and she walks you back to your hotel room and says her room isn't even on the same floor; and that doesn't set off any alarms in your head?

    Don't sell Jack short...he knows. (and that's not a spoiler; I'm making an educated guess).
