I've read the book (which wasn't amazing) and watched the first 3 or 4 episodes and it's just OK so far, does it get better? The guy playing Reacher is a pretty awful actor and just walks around robotically alot - they've deviated quite alot from the book at times, mostly for the worse.Yes, it's brilliant. We smashed it out over 2 or 3 nights
I've just been watching this, wanted some cheesy/mindless action movie type TV and this seems to fit the bill nicely.
I've not read the books (am assuming they're like "airport novel" type books?), this TV series certainly isn't on a par with the likes of Bosch (which is frankly excellent).
I have seen the first film and didn't mind the Tom Cruise/short thing, if anything it was more interesting to have Reacher as an unassuming guy who is highly skilled/competent at fighting rather than this massive muscular bloke that apparently random average height goons are still quite happy to take a swing at.
Obvs it's not big on being realistic, it's just a cheesy, watch the hero beat the bad guys, get the girl etc.. type thing.
