Editorial Reviews

Based on the bestselling crime novels by Ken Bruen

“Impressive, gritty dramas” —Daily Mail (U.K.)
“Brilliant” —The People(UK)

Jack Taylor (Iain Glen, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) is a former cop turned private investigator with little to show for his time in the Irish Guards but his old police overcoat. Few of his former colleagues have any regard for Taylor, who looks more like the people they arrest every day than one of their own. The exception is his friend Garda Kate Noonan (Nora-Jane Noone, The Magdalene Sisters), though even she has to walk a fine line between helping Taylor and irritating her boss.

Six months sober, Taylor takes on cases with the help of his young assistant, Cody (Killian Scott, Love/Hate), even while he worries about his elderly mother, who has suffered a stroke. Try as he might, the ex-cop from Galway finds that in his hometown, his past is always just a mistake away. Includes three feature-length mysteries: The Dramatist, Priest, and Shot Down.

This is the second set of films to feature Jack Taylor from author Ken Bruen's popular detective series. The primary draw, for me, to this collection of Irish made-for-TV movies is the great character actor Iain Glen. While I've seen Glen in dozens of projects including Downton Abbey and MI-5 over the last thirty years, he is currently starring in HBO's stellar adaptation of "Game of Thrones." As the right hand of Daenerys Targaryen (EMMY nominee Emilia Clarke), he has miraculously lasted three seasons without meeting a beheading or other violent end! No small accomplishment there! "Jack Taylor" is, as I mentioned, a series of movies that started in 2010. The Set One DVD release collected the three earliest works: The Guards, The Pikemen, and The Magdalen Martyrs. With Set Two, we get three additional mysteries: The Dramatist, Priest, and Shot Down.

I watch a lot of international TV, especially crime drama, and it's such an overcrowded field that it has become virtually impossible to tell new or intriguing stories. "Jack Taylor," in addition to the presence of Glen, offers two other unique selling points: The individual plots are appropriately twisty and the series benefits from a real sense of location. Set mostly in Galway, the township and its inhabitants figure prominently into the success of the franchise. This is gritty stuff. A disgraced cop, Taylor leads a troubled life straddling between the law enforcement community and the seamier underbelly of polite society. Taylor takes on cases that the police ignore, and this leads to many confrontations from just about every angle. With the first episode of "Jack Taylor" (The Guards), I absolutely loathed the beginning of this franchise and almost shut it off.

Set Two is an excellent addition to the Jack Taylor series. Jack is an ex-cop who now works as a PI. This box set brings us three new episodes including:

The Dramatist: A drama student's death is declared a suicide associated with drug use, but one of her professors suspects foul play and hires Jack.

Priest: A priest is beheaded while praying in his church. The other priest fears he might be next on the list and calls on Jack to see which of the parishioners might be the culprit.

Shot Down: When a woman's shooting goes unsolved, Jack volunteers his services to help protect the woman's daughter who may have witnessed the crime.

This gritty series will leave you on the edge of your seat the whole time. There's lots of action and even a little romance. I have seen the whole series, but you can watch each episode as a stand-alone. There are no cliff-hangers and each episode is it's own complete story. A great series for fans of drama and mystery with a little bit of edginess.

This is a terrific adaptation of the excellent series of crime novels by Irish writer Ken Bruen. I absolutely love the Jack Taylor novels. It is maybe the most underrated crime series in current fiction. Jack Taylor is an incredibly compelling protagonist, up there with Rebus and Bosch as the best of the genre. The television adaptation is not quite as good as the novels but it is excellent. Iain Glen always gives interesting performances and he is strong as usual in the role of Taylor. Glen really does a great job getting under the skin of the former guard turned private investigator. Nora Jane Noone is also excellent as Garda Noonan who risks her own career to help with Jack's cases. One of the best aspects of the series is Jack's relationship with his young partner Cody. Their relationship brings some much needed humor to this otherwise pitch black series and is at times unexpectedly touching. Killian Scott shows real acting range in his role as Cody, playing a character very different to his most well known role as Tommy on "Love/Hate". The adaptations are not strictly faithful to the novels, but the tone and feel of the show is true to Bruen's vision. Overall, "Jack Taylor" is as good as it gets. I can't wait to see new episodes. Hopefully, this series will keep airing for years to come.

JACK TAYLOR, (2010), Set 2. Broadcast in the U.K. in 2013, and located in and around beauteous Galway on Ireland's rugged western coast, Ken Bruen's bestselling crime novels leap to life in this acclaimed series of Irish television movies featuring Jack Taylor. The title role, self-destructive, pigheaded, and the shady side of 40, is fully inhabited by the Scottish Iain Glen, who holds down significant supporting roles in the two biggest TV hits currently around, DOWNTON ABBEY and GAME OF THRONES. These hardboiled mysteries find their protagonist, kicked off Ireland's police force for booze-related infractions, apparently gaining nothing from his years on the Garda but a threadbare overcoat, now working as a "finder" (private eye) in his native Galway, taking on, from his favorite barstool, cases the cops won't touch. He's battered, disheveled, hard-boiled, and shows himself, every so often, as a softhearted defender of the lost and broken. Exteriors are filmed in Ireland; interiors, in Germany, as the series was financed by a German company. This boxed set of Series 2, includes three feature-length mysteries on three disks, running approximately 280 minutes, plus bonus programing. And, thank goodness, and RLJ Entertainment/Acorn, subtitles, else how would viewers on this side of the pond possibly comprehend the west coast brogue. But be warned, it's for mature audiences only, containing coarse language, nudity and violence.

The episodes are:

The Dramatist
While continuing his attempt at sobriety and healthier living seven months after his mother's stroke, Jack is asked to investigate the death of a female university student, who has fallen from a roof while in theatrical costume.
