Je suis Jack Carter, détective privé - le meilleur de Montréal!
29 October 2003 | by (Montréal, Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

Jack Carter is the best private detective in Montreal. He is a former police officer, divorced from the city's forensic pathologist and father of a young girl. He is helped in his cases by his best friend, a former cop and current restaurant owner, and by an ex-colleague still in the police force. A second cop hates him and is a constant source of trouble. Like James Bond, he never fails to go to bed with the attractive females that cross his path.

The first year of the show had only four stories, each one developed over two episodes - eight episodes in total. The cases were:

  • The disappearance of a businessman, possibly linked to a woman's body


found half buried in cement.

  • A tiger is stolen from the zoo.




  • A body is stolen from the cemetery.




  • A scientist is chased by mysterious men that are after his secret


formula.

The show is not quite like any other TV detective show I have seen. It manages quite well a balance between the serious and the funny. It doesn't take itself too seriously. Good production values for a Canadian series, stylish direction, likable cast, all contribute to make it a very watchable show. I hope it comes back for a second year.
