    yeah Meg. Lee Child actually said they were "looking" for suggestions for the lead. He admitted that TC wasn't a good choice (to the exact description of the character)- and the fans really didn't like it. Whaaaaaaa. I thought I posted about it on TBJ.... can't find it.

    The idea of Reacher in a TV series is good. However I doubt I'll see it, I don't subscribe to Netflix or similar. I can find more than enough to watch on UK's "free" TV, not prepared to pay extra, never have done

    The "who should play Reacher is still pottering along on Facebook and I asked to be excused - I didn't have a clue as to who the people were that were being suggested.

    Finished a few days ago...I thought it progressed nicely. However, I guessed both "mysteries" about halfway through. Criminal Minds episode is why I new what was going to be happening to Patty and Shorty.
    About his father...the description of the boys by the birdwatcher gave it away.

    Same here, only the classic short story "The Most Dangerous Game" was the first thing I thought of. After that, "The Hunger Games" was what I thought of. I would've liked to see a more extended version of Reacher sneaking around wreaking havoc on the hunters in the woods, more like THG, but I was satisfied. I hope we get something more detailed on Stan in future writings though, or even some of these evil Reachers.

    Stephen Hunter has his Bob Lee Swagger and Earl (Bob Lee's father) Swagger series, but he also has a semi-standalone book following the fate of an illegitimate son of Earl. Kind of a anti-Bob Lee story, titled "Dirty White Boys." Very well written, but this son, Lamar Pye, is a tragic character. Won't say more than that, but if you like the Swaggers, this one shouldn't be missed.

    Yeah, there was about a half second of "Wait...what?" then on to reversed IDs.

    You two, Meg & Dan are cleverer than me. I didn't work it out
