Powering Through Season One
In the Olden Days with only three networks it was easy to keep up with new shows.
Today we are bombarded with literally dozens and dozens of new programs divided between at least 10 to 15 major networks.
One of the programs that I let slip through the cracks was USA's Shooter.
I am a huge fan of the Mark Wahlberg movie. The plot of a corrupt CIA and Deep State could be taken right out of today's headlines.
Now thanks to Netflix I just powered through all ten episodes of Season One.
For those who missed it, the TV show takes the Wahlberg film and expands it out to the ten shows.
TV is almost always a different animal from movies. But in this case USA did a pretty good job keeping to the original while making some changes.
In this version Bob Lee Swagger has picked up a fairly hot military wife along the way. I am cool with that. That gives him something to protect and fight for. Unfortunately he also has a little daughter. For me kids and action films do not mix. The kid's part is OK, but for her own protection I hope she is shipped off to some aunt for Season Two.
Overall the program is well done and there is enough senseless violence and mayhem to keep even me entertained.
Catch up on Netflix and get ready for Season Two in a couple weeks.
Rated - 8 out of 10
