3.0 out of 5 stars Edgy but with heart, October 28, 2013
This review is from: JACK IRISH, SET 1 (DVD)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I liked this video but didn't love it. It's edgy, has heart and humor but there's nothing especially compelling about the stories in fact the denouements don't make a lot of sense maybe because it's about Australian politics. I love the Aussie setting however and Guy Pearce is impossible to dislike. His hard drinking, failed lawyer character's back story is interesting and I loved the plethora of substitute father figures he with which he surrounded himself. Actually these veteran actors all but steal the show with their subtle nuances and their humor. There are his three elderly sports obsessed bar buddies and his carpenter mentor. In fact the carpenter shop is where Jack spends therapeutic time working with natural materials between bouts of crime fighting. It's a throwback to a simpler time before he heads out to the race track and modern day intrigue.

In both these episodes he manages to find willing female companionship. The settings are psychologically graphic yet there's surprisingly little blood splatter but there is some nudity if that's a concern for viewers. Interest wise this crime drama was on the cusp for me. I'd watch the remaining episodes if they showed up on TV though I wouldn't feel compelled to buy them. I loved the characters but found the stories lackluster.
