So far 2 books Killing Floor and BAD Luck and Trouble, have been adapted to 2, 8 episodes series. I find the adaptations very fair and look forward to more books. First, hey got the character right.

First season was above average. Liked Reacher and the rest of the cast. Good action plus humor and relationships. Haven't seen season 2 yet.

It was pretty cool. The leading actor is a true colossus, and it's incredible how he crushes enemies as if he were beating sitting ducks.

That I exactly how the books present him. His size is his main attribute and then his unbeatable dexterity at hand combats are unequaled. I truly enjoyed the 2 seasons so far.
