#JackRyan: an ex-Marine with a PhD in history, an economist, a stockbroker who made millions thru his investments, and a CIA analyst.

OK. Suspend our disbelief + allow that he’s done all this by his late 30s. But suspend it as to believe he’s a white dude and not Jamaican? 🤔
Also Jack Ryan is very much A White Man With The Answers.™️

His hunches are never wrong. Every ep he hits someone with a #wellactually. Ppl tell him he’s just too *good.* Abbie Cornish is flustered by him.

Lol. It’s like Amazon gave a random Redditor some $ for a screenplay.
