Reacher – Season 1 (B+ average)
Is Reacher good? That’s debatable. Is Alan Ritchson the right build to play Jack Reacher? Absolutely. Is it weird this season is set in Georgia yet filmed in Canada? Most definitely. Reacher is often absurd, poorly acted and incredibly violent. Yet it satisfies the lizard part of my brain that just wants to see bad guys taken out in increasingly clever and gruesome ways. Bruce McGill makes a full course meal of the scenery as a corrupt politician, but Malcolm Goodwin is the real discovery here. His turn as the uptight detective, whose mannered style covers up deep hurt, is terrific.
