Guess he needs to rescue Pam.
The show is not a direct adaptation of the books as were the first Jack Ryan movies but a new contemporary take on the character in his prime as a CIA analyst/operative using the novels as source material.
I don’t understand this at all. It’s like the NewKirk Jack Ryan movie. I have no idea who it was made for. Certainly not fans of the books, because it wasn’t based on any book. It was written as a spec script, bought by Paramount, and adapted to become a “Jack Ryan” movie.
