It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.
I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.
Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.
We’re thankful for Netflix and Amazon Prime for our movies and television shows. Our latest show was season 1 of Reacher on Amazon Prime. It’s based on the first book by Lee Child named Killing Floor.
Jack Reacher gets off a Greyhound bus in the town of Margrave, Georgia, because he remembers his brother mentioning that a blues musician named Blind Blake had died there. Much to his surprise, shortly after his arrival, he is arrested in a local diner for murder on the orders of the sheriff, Morrison, who falsely claims he saw Reacher leave the scene.

About Jack Reacher:
Jack Reacher is the protagonist of a series of crime thriller novels by British author Lee Child. After leaving the US Army as a major in its military police at age 36, Reacher roams the United States taking odd jobs and investigating suspicious and frequently dangerous situations. He’s 6’5″ and weighs 250 pounds. All muscle.
Hubby and I were spellbound with the show until the end. We’re hoping that each book will be made into a season. We love all things Jack Reacher.

Thanks to the internet, we have so many good movies to enjoy.
We sure do, Nancy. 🙂
‘Cutting the cable’ gave us so many more options! I’m thankful you and I have many interests in common with our spouses. ~hugs~ On the subject of unhappy marriages, lacking similar comedic sensibilities wreaks the most sorrow I personally recognize.
I’ve never had Netflix but I do have Amazon Prime. I saw that show listed when I turned on my tv yesterday. I just might have to watch it.
If you’ve read any of the 26-27 Reacher books you’ll want to watch the show. Excellent. 🙂
Thriller movies are too scary for my woosie mom☺ Happy St Patrick’s Day, Miss Sandee!
This isn’t a thriller, but a murder mystery. They are really good books and the show was fabulous. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
Mom isn’t a movie or book person, but she loves the real crime shows on TV and finds them fascinating, although sometimes scary. Happy Shamrock Day!
I love those too and watch them on YouTube. 🙂
i watched Madame and The Electical Life of Louis Wain. Both well done. And we are binging midsomer muurders on acorn tv 20 seasons of murder and mayhem
I’ve seen midsomer murders. Great shot. I’ve not watched the first two. Need to check them out. 🙂
I am a big fan of Lee Child too. Thanks for the review!!!
I’m thankful folks who make me smile:
Today was grocery day here in NC. The first person I saw when I walked into the store, was the produce guy. He dyed his mustache and beard GREEN. It was quite festive and made me smile
We love Lee Child too. I think he’s one of the best authors out there.
Way to go on the produce guy. How fun.
Have a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day, Cecilia. Big hug. 🙂
I’ve attended several online Zoom meetings with Lee Child; he’s often in the company of my favorite author, Laurie R. King, and they are friends. Also, I’ve read all of the Lee Child & Douglas Preston’s Prendergast series, and a few of their Gideon Crew books too.
Happy St. Patrick’s and St. Gertrude’s Day!
I’ll have to check out the Prendergast series. Happy St. Patrick’s and St. Gertrude’s Day. 🙂
I have read every single Jack Reacher book and am a huge fan of him. I tryed to watch the new series and the man that plays the part is not anything at all like the book, so could not watch it. its odd how we all see the same things with different eyes. Did you know there is a set of books about jack Reachers son? his name is Jack Widow, written by Scott Blade, there are 17 of them on Amazon, and I am at the end of # 9.. not quite as good as Child but good. since I read this i may try the first Reacher alone with out bob. he and i don’t see eye to eye on movies and he doesn’t read
We loved the series. I’ll check out Jack Widow. I’m always looking for good books. 🙂
Sandee wow i guess i should check that out.Happy St paddy’s day to you and Zane! 🙌 🙌
If you love crime shows you’ll love it. Scritches to Screwball. 🙂
I’m not one to watch movies but my hubby enjoys them. We have Netflix, as well, and I’m grateful for that. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 💚
We like the lack of commercials. It’s less expensive too. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
Thank goodness for libraries full of great books while dealing with Covid lockups etc. Lee Child is a great writer- I think we saw this series some time back…but maybe this is a new series?
I hear you. We have stacks of unread books. Love and hugs all around. 🙂
Those Reacher stories are very entertaining! Glad you enjoyed the latest iteration of the Jack Reacher story.
I’ve already pre-ordered his next book. I think it will show up around November 1. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
Ooh, nice. Just in time for a lovely entertaining autumn evening. We’ll done. ☘️
It is nice to have something you both enjoy watching. I think my hubby and I would like Jack Reacher.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! XO
The books were addictive. I had ordered all of them and kept reading until I read them all. I could read Jack Reacher books forever. 🙂
I’m also a big Jack Reacher fan!! The show is on our “list” of things to watch!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
You won’t be disappointed. We loved it. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. 🙂
We don’t have any of those kind of tv channels, and we rarely watch a movie. But I have read a couple of his books, and they are really good! We actually went to a used bookstore this morning, which was fun. 🙂
Happy Thursday! ♥
They are really good indeed. I’ve read every one of his books and have pre-ordered his next book. I’ll get that around November 1. 🙂
Your series sounds very interesting. I am glad you both enjoy it. Always grate to know you here and enjoy your friendship. Take care
We so loved the books and the TV show. I enjoy your friendship too, Anne. 🙂
I heard this morning if people have shared their passwords with Netflex they are going to start investigating. I tohught is that really something earth shattering? Hmmm…. I guess I will never know. But I’m happy you like the eries together and can enjoy it.
I’ve not shared my password with anyone. That’s theft. Love you. 🙂
Jack Reacher is great for book reading and movie watchin` ~ Xo
Wishing you lots of love and peace in your days,
A ShutterBug Explores,
aka (A Creative Harbor)
It sure is. I love those books. I just hope they make a TV show of all his books. 🙂
Netflix and Amazon are pretty much all we ever turn to on the TV (unless the Super Bowl is on). We will have to check out Reacher. Have you watched The Amazing Mrs. Marvel on Amazon?
That’s all we have here. It’s all we need.
No I’ve not seen The Amazing Mrs. Marvel 🙂
Sorry, it’s the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Anyhow, it’s really good.
I am a Jack Reacher fan. Lee Child writes a good story that keeps my interest and always has a surprise or two. I refused to see Reacher movies with Tom Cruise as Reacher because he just doesn’t fit the physical picture of the character. I will have to check out the Amazon series.
The new guy does fit the Reacher look. You’ll see. We enjoyed the show. 🙂
It certainly sounds like a thrilling show.
Today i am thankful i remembered to go get more syringes for giving Dansig his insulin, we were down to the last two.
I’m glad you remembered those syringes too. Dansig is happy too. 🙂
Oh, good thankful, we really enjoyed Reacher too, plus all the books of course.That guy was more Reacher than the tiny Tom Cruise. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
Tom Cruise was a joke. We love the new guy. Thanks for hosting such a wonderful blog hop. 🙂
Thankful for a warm (50 degrees) and sunny St. Patrick’s Day! 💚🍀 Have a beatuiful week, Sandee. xo
Spring is coming. You have a beautiful day and weekend, Bette. 🙂
I do enjoy my Netflix and Amazon Prime too. We really enjoyed Reacher. Great first season.
We loved it and are hoping they do all the books. 🙂
Thank you for the recommendation.
You’re most welcome. 🙂
We loved Jack Reacher!! I am ready for the next season 🙂
Me too. I hope they do all the books. Most entertaining. 🙂
