Joe Pickett – season 1

Hooked on the book series by C.J. Box, I felt obliged to try the TV adaptation.

83% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Successful enough to be renewed for a second season.

Michael Dorman is well cast as Joe Pickett.

I was surprised to see “outlaw falconerNate Romanowski as a Black man. Nate’s personality is a little different in the TV adaptation, as well.

In the book Nate’s a lean, tall, angular predator — with a blonde ponytail.

He’s everyone’s favourite character.

For me the show is a bit slow. The pace of the books is more engaging.

And there are too many flashbacks, for me typically a sign of weak storytelling.

But the TV show is well done. I do recommend it for fans of the Joe Pickett books.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

This TV series is on Paramount+.

I was able to watch it via Apple TV free for a week. Then cancelled my subscription.
