Jack Irish, is a brooding antihero of Australia. Reeling in the wake of his wife's murder, the former lawyer has reinvented himself as a part-time private investigator and full-time alcoholic, intent on drowning his demons. When an old client dies after leaving Jack several frantic voicemails, the PI realizes he can't outrun or out-drink his past. Jack returns to the world that took everything away from him: a seedy place of lowlifes, corruption, violence, and retribution.

I enjoyed it. Sometimes between the accents and the complicated story lines I got a little lost. I think also that the story almost always has a big conspiracy involving crime organizations or the government or both and that can be a little daunting for the viewer. Can't he just solve crime involving regular people. But the production and the scripts are pretty good. Plus Guy Pearce is very likable and watchable as the lead. Great alternative to the usual BBC thrillers.

Fairly good. Actually, I wanted him to take a shower, wash his hair, shave & stop wearing that really stupid coat.

Above average detective thriller further elevated by Guy Pierce's performance.

Nice pilot and follow up. Too bad there are only three episodes on DVD. May have to read up on Peter Temple's books on Jack's other adventures.

If the words “Australian noir starring Guy Pearce” don’t have you clicking for the hold button I don’t know what to tell you. Episode 1 suffers the fate of many series starters: too many characters and a lot of establishing exposition (you still have to watch it) but the second one is ace.

Watchable, but not great. Acting is good, characters are interesting, stories have potential.......but something is missing.

And today...there's 13 other cattle out there trying to sink us.
But some bunny's gotta win, eh?
Why not us, Jack?

-I mean, there's no crime making money, so they say.
-Well, no, not unless you know in advance that the planning minister's gonna award you the 7ender, I guess.
-Yeah, well, that would start
to smell like a crime.
