Oh, lookie here. Amazon just stealth dropped one of their biggest shows, Jack Ryan today. I really don’t understand the business logic of doing stuff like this. A show like Jack Ryan deserves proper promotion and lead time to get people excited about watching S2. Just dropping it out of the blue like this may be cool for those of us in the “know,” but what about all those people who may not be aware it’s even coming, much less out today? I’ll binge watch this weekend and will hopefully get you all some reviews early next week. But if you are an Amazon Prime member this is one of the best shows on Prime right now. Official press release below.
