Re: Reacher (Amazon) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 12/15/23

Ritchson recently said this

Who knows what my career holds or if the audience will stick around that long. Yeah, if audiences are still showing up 10 years in, why stop? I don’t know. Who knows? I don’t know what the future holds or where my head will be at that point, if I’ll be bored at that point, but I’m … So far I’m anything but bored. I thoroughly enjoy the character and I really want to see a lot of these books that I love brought to life as a fan.
Oh hell yeah. Keep it going for years.

Finished episode 1 - solid opening.

I didn’t get it from the trailer, but he is definitely more jacked. Doesn’t help the flashbacks!

Definitely laughed at the Terminator bit too.

First three episodes were great. Ritchson and the actors playing his crew have good chemistry together, and Robert Patrick is always solid. Also, hey its the guy from The Wire!

Re: Reacher (Amazon) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 12/15/23

I watched the first two episodes. I love the character Ritchson has made. He’s just so fun to watch. The Sarah Connor line was great as well!

My one complaint so far is, holy shit is a lot of the dialogue this season clunky! They are over-explaining everything for the audience. For instance, in the construction site fight with Dixon and Reacher instead of a simple line like, “We can’t have the cops show up, so no guns.” We get, “Reacher, you’ve likely got a warrant for your arrest in New York so we can’t have the cops show up. We need to handle this quietly!”

It’s not enough to make me dislike the show but it’s really distracting when this team of people, who seeming can anticipate each other’s next thought/move seem to have to explain everything to each other that they should already know.

Yeah, this season isn't as well written and I'm not finding it as fun at this point. But Ritchson is fun to watch.

I’ve seen the first two. As others have already said, the Sarah Connor line to Robert Patrick was hilarious.

Love the brutality of Reacher beating the shit out of all those guys. when he kicked the front of the car and triggered the air bag on that cop.

I love Neagley. For those who have read the books, how big of a part is she in the series? She works so well with Reacher. I like that he has a female buddy who he’s not attracted to. The actress is attractive though. I looked her up and she has a very unique mixture of ethnicities.

Those two have great nonsexual chemistry. I noticed it last season too.

From Wikipedia…

[Neagley] appears in Without Fail, The Affair, Bad Luck and Trouble, Night School, and Small Wars and is mentioned in Never Go Back. The first page of Bad Luck and Trouble includes a dedication "For the real Frances L. Neagley", who won a Bouchercon charity auction for the naming rights to a character.

There is definitely more exposition in the dialogue this season.

I did enjoy the conversation as Reacher was buying the guns.

The only thing my logic brain has an issue with so far is the fact that a nomad moving from place to place is able to get enough food and access to equipment to stay that jacked.

I was thinking the same thing.

But I still love the show.

He's got a pension and a bank account - so he's not broke.

Maybe he bench-presses dumpsters to keep in shape? That, or his frequent physical abuse of the bad guys keeps him in shape

I love the interactions the team has had with Russo. From calling him Sipowicz to just bustin' his balls.

This crushed it again on Amazon, ratings wise. Since it's already set for Season 3, I'd imagine 4 won't be far behind.

That's great to hear about the ratings. After watching these first 3 eps from season 2, I decided to go back and rewatch season 1 and I binged it all in 2 days.

Oh shit that cameo! *chef's kiss*

That was good to see him back.

That fight scene with the bikers was awesome.

Yeah the fight scene with Reacher’s team and the biker gang was badass. Reacher broke a lot of legs and arms. The brutality of that scene was sick.

“I want to throw you out of a helicopter.” Reacher to Langston

Cool little cameo.

Episodes 3 and 4 were definitely better written than the first two. I laughed at loud at some of the quips by Reacher.

Reacher: “How did you find us?”

Russo: “I just looked for the car with a giant asshole in it!”

Reacher: *To O’Donnell* “He spotted you.”

Awesome episode--loved the surprise guest. There were some great lines in this one.

O'Donnell: "Well she did take her toothbrush." gasps, whispers "She could be your soulmate."
Reacher: "Shut up."


Neagley: "or maybe he ran so fast because he knew three pissed-off soldiers and a kaiju were coming for him."


discussing Talking Heads
Reacher: "It's not even their best song."
O'Donnell: "You probably prefer Psycho Killer."

and then later
Reacher on the phone with Langston: "I want to throw you out of a helicopter."
credits roll to Psycho Killer by Talking Heads
