Superstar Chris Pratt sent a message to fans and Amazon after “The Terminal List” soared to the top, making it the “#1 Television Series on Amazon Prime Video.”
The 43-year-old actor owned the Fourth of July weekend not once but twice after his latest show, based on former Navy Seal author Jack Carr’s book by the same name, became the most watched series on the streaming site. In the message he shared on social media, Pratt praised Amazon for letting them make the “show we wanted to make.”
“Well, that’s two years in a row that the 4th of July weekend belongs to Amazon @primevideo,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star captioned his post on Instagram Wednesday.
“Last year, it was #TheTomorrowWar,” he added. “This year, it’s #TheTerminalList! I’m so grateful for my relationship with @jennifersalke and everyone at Amazon!”
“Thank you for letting us make the show we wanted to make,” the “Jurassic World” star continued. “Thanks to all who helped get us there! If you haven’t seen [Terminallist] yet, check it out!”

In one of the comments, the social media account for “The Terminal List” wrote that “Chris Pratt owns 4th of July!”
The series is about “a former Navy SEAL officer” who “investigates why his entire platoon was ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission,” a description on IMDb reads. It hit the streaming site on July 1.
On Rotten Tomatoes, critics panned it, giving it a 37% for the show’s “pretty standard-issue, macho-man military conspiracy theory fare,” as one critic put it. But audiences are loving it, giving it a score of 93% — and many are questioning the critics’ low scores.
“The character development and story are excellent!” as one fan wrote. “Really happy that Amazon is producing these kinds of stories and putting them out there, very binge-worthy! Chris Pratt is excellent, this is really a different character for him and he plays it so well!”
During the star-studded red carpet premiere held recently in Los Angeles, Pratt stopped to shake hands with WWII Veterans as he posed for pictures and thanked the men in uniform, who he praised as members of the “greatest generation,” as The Daily Wire previously reported.
The Marvel star told reporters he has an “absolute affinity for our Navy SEAL community, for our men and women in uniform and especially for our special operators and all they go through and all they sacrifice.”
