‘The Terminal List’ Author Jack Carr Fires Back at Leftist Critics Attacking His Show Starring Chris Pratt – Opinion

“The Terminal List” author Jack Carr isn’t taking the flak coming at him from leftist critics over his new show on Amazon laying down, and as critics rage that a show has come out that doesn’t infect itself with modernity, Carr is firing back.

If you haven’t watched “The Terminal List” starring Chris Pratt, I suggest you do so at your earliest convenience. While I’m not done with it yet (I’m on Ep.4 and a full review will follow) I’m wholly sucked in. Pratt’s acting abilities are clearly on full display. The show is well-written and each character delivers their best. You will love it and be captivated by every moment.

The left claims that the show has many flaws. They say it is filled with bad writing and acting. Or at least, that’s what their excuse for not liking it is. They’re not exactly shy about telling you why they actually hate it. As I covered previously, the left is angry because it doesn’t carry its message in any way, shape, or form. In fact, according to them, it’s a movie conservatives enjoy, which is the gravest sin any movie can make.

You can be sure that the critics have been wrong so far. According to Rotten Tomatoes, 43 percent of the critics score was scored by Rotten Tomatoes while 94% are from the audience.

Carr has seen all of this and he’s more than happy to call these critics out, as well as he should.

Carr stopped by Carlson to point out The Daily Beast article which called the show a “conservative revenge fantasy.”

“It seems to have triggered quite a few of these critics,” said Carr.

“Daily Beast titled their review ‘The Terminal List is an unhinged Right-wing revenge fantasy,’ which is odd because right, left, conservative, liberal are not even mentioned in the show,” he said. “But I think it may be because the protagonist is competent with weapons and tactics. He’s strong. His strong character holds people in power responsible, which could prove to be troubling for some. Particularly some, maybe senior members of the military who have failed upwards over the last 20 years.”

A TV Line review was also mentioned by him.

“It says, ‘The Fugitive meets SEAL Team meets A Don’t Tread On Me truck decal were served up huge helpings of red meat masculinity and lots and lots of American flags. They don’t like American flags over there,” he said.

“GameRant even cites Revolutionary War-era Don’t Tread On Me flags as a negative,” Carr continued. “So it’s odd that both GameRant and TV Line had to go back to the 1700s to take the side of the British in their reviews. And I found that quite telling.”

Carr also stopped by Dana Loesch’s radio show where Loesch commented on the Rotten Tomatoes rating discrepancy and asked why wokeness needs to be in any show at all. Carr agreed, and noted that if the show had put those leftist agenda items in there, then the score would be “about a zero.”

He’s not wrong. He’s right. People are becoming more wary of movies that promote leftist propaganda. “The Terminal List” is a breath of fresh air that, much like “Top Gun: Maverick” keeps things apolitical. It focuses on telling a very compelling story and doesn’t shoehorn in things that take the story into unnecessary and tiresome directions.

As I’ve said repeatedly, the left doesn’t care about a good storyline, what they care about is if something carries “the message.” If it doesn’t, then it gets bad scores. It only makes them angrier that it stars one of the left’s most despised actors who gives one of the best performances he’s ever done.

Carr and Pratt did something amazing and everyone on the left is aware of it. They can’t help but rage about it.

Carr has every right to be funny about them.
