This globe-spanning docu-series brings the smart, stylized storytelling of Adam McKay's The Big Short to a quirky and compelling exploration of the global economy. In each episode, host Kal Penn - with the help of some celebrity friends - answers a burning question like: How can I launder a bag of dirty cash? How scared should I be of a rubber apocalypse? And is it easier for dicks to get rich?

While the show isn't perfect, there's a lot to be said of the criticism its been receiving. The Tom Clancy books have never been PG-14, and I respect Amazon's choice in tuning the show for a mature audience. Because honestly, its an re-imagining of an already complex, mature and technical series of books.
To address some criticisms:
1. People say that the show has too much nudity and bedroom scenes, but might I remind those who actually have read the books that those weren't short of bedroom scenes either, take Tom Clancy's "Threat Vector" for example. That book alone had 3+ bedroom scenes for various characters.
This is one of my favorite shows
Tom Clancy's - Jack Ryan
