5.0 out of 5 stars Gritty and Great British Detective Series, August 10, 2013
This review is from: JACK TAYLOR, SET 1 (DVD)
If you like gritty atmospheric British mysteries, this series delivers. Jack Taylor is a renegade, former "guard" in Galway, Ireland. The background setting of this seaside town of Ireland provides a lot of the charm of the series. Jack is down and out, helping families of victims of crime. He has a soft heart for the underdog.

He doesn't play by the rules, but he's effective. I don't know how he's still standing, the number of times he gets attacked, but he always lives to fight and drink another day. Aiding him is an attractive and smart female cop, a sympathetic chief of police who cuts him slack when he can, and he teams up with a fun and smart sidekick in episode two. He also has a very understanding landlady. The dialogue is colorful and witty. There is a lot of profanity and some graphic violence in every show, but the acting is terrific and Ireland is a delight. Wonderful cinematography.

Based on the novels by Ken Bruen, the plots are original. If you didn't like the first show in this series, keep watching as the second one is better.
