    Great episode as always.

    As a fan of the Jack Reacher book series, I am in agreement that the movie Jack Reacher was a disappointment. Not to geek out too much, but the movie does not do a good job of giving a good back story on the “real” Reacher. In the books he is 6’5” and weights around 250lbs. They had to leave that portion out because well…Tom Cruse. The books pretty much describes him as being built like a brick house (seriously). He is a retired Army MP which is where he acquired all of his fighting/shooting skills.

    I really enjoy the books and they may be something to check out if you are ever looking for something to read. The book that this movie is based off of is called One Shot.

    Keep up the great work! Getting to listen to you ladies helps make my work day go faster.
