Did You Know?


Episode 107 of 'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' features a reference to the CIA's Memorial Wall. The wall features permanent engravings of five-point stars to represent CIA officers who have died during service. The fallen are also memorialized in the CIA's Book of Honor, which sits in a display case below the Memorial Wall. The book lists the names of the deceased whenever possible, though some of the dead remain publicly anonymous. See more »


When Dr. Nadler (portrayed by Matt McCoy) receives the meds he asked for from Suleiman, Suleiman reminds Nadler what he asked for, antibiotics, acetaminophen, iodine, etc. Back in the "dungeon" where the medical personnel are held captive, he shares the medicine with the other team members, and then gets up to give some meds to the previous Arab terrorist cell leader who was usurped by Suleiman, and one of the medical team members asks Nadler what he is giving to the Arab? Nadler's answer is "he has had a fever for three days, his arm is broken, and....an aspirin tablet." This is incorrect, since Nadler neither asked for nor received aspirin (which is the most common trade name for acetylsalicylic acid), he asked for and received acetaminophen, which is the chemical and generic name for the medicine commonly known as Tylenol. Both are pain relievers and fever reducers, and both have chemical names which begin with "acet," but otherwise the two medications are quite different. See more »

Don't believe the reviews!
14 September 2019 | by jenniferglaSee all my reviews

This whole season so far has been exceptional! To the reviewer who complained about the geography, go back to school. There is an Annandale in Maryland as well. John Krasinski is awesome in it as is the other actors. I can't wait for season 2 to come out.
