Jack Irish was a criminal lawyer but in this DVD set he's decided to switch sides after his wife is murdered. Now he's a part-time private investigator, trying to hunt down the same people he used to set free. On the side, he also works as a debt collector and both occupations get him into more than a little trouble. There are two full length episodes on this disk.
I have to say Guy Pearce does and amazing job in this role. His brooding presence coupled with that nice physique is just the type of semi-bad boy that makes my heart thump. Knowing the sad plight behind his behavior just makes him even more appealing because you know there's a good guy under all the trouble. I am definitely hoping to see a set 2 out for Jack Irish in the near future because this is one show I just can't get enough of. Now that I've seen the show, I'm definitely going to have to get my hands on the books! If you want to get your hands on this great DVD set, you can order Jack Irish Set One on DVD at Acorn Media or on Amazon.
