Yards of gritty Australian character....
16 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Jack Irish is a detective show with yards of gritty, very Australian character.

Jack is wryly witty, hard drinking, somewhat self destructive, self styled detective and part time ladies man. Played with a world worn, crusty charm, by Guy Pearce.

Jack Irish and the larger than life, cast of very colourful Australian characters, really bring this series to life. Each of the characters in this series has a well rounded, often off beat or odd ball personality and their own well scripted narrative. There are no "filler" characters in Jack Irish and the series is so much better, for it.

The quality characterizations are matched up with robust, mystery/crime, tales, that typically have an "underdog taking on the corrupt establishment" flavour. Jack is always the underdog, who inevitably comes out on top, but, typically, not without exacting a personal toll.

I really, really like Jack Irish. If you have not spent time in Australia it may be hard to appreciate some of the cultural artifacts and nuances found in the series. That said, its a very approachable watch, that's certainly a departure from mainstream US and UK crime/mystery drama's. I say give it a go. Eight out of ten from me.
