THE RECRUIT: SEASON ONE
Starring: Noah Centineo, Laura Haddock, Aarti Mann, Fivel Stewart, Daniel Quincy Annoh, Vondie Curtis-Hall, Colton Dunn, Kristian Bruun, and Kaylah Zander
Creator: Alexi Hawley
Netflix’s The Recruit, which, sadly, is not based on the 2003 movie starring Colin Farrell and Al Pacino, is nothing special, but it has enough goofy charm to keep you clicking the “next episode” button. Noah Centineo’s easy-going affability makes him easy to root for even as he fails upward in increasingly absurd situations (people who work in DC will find it laughably ridiculous). Overall, it’s like a light-hearted Jack Ryan for twentysomethings, and is a show that I will probably return to next season (it ends on an intriguing cliffhanger). That said, I wouldn’t miss it if it ends up getting canceled either.
