Season 3 Premiere:
Matt Roush says...
My kind of shaggy-underdog flawed hero, Jack Irish (a marvelous Guy Pearce) is a sort-of lawyer/private eye who barely scraped by as he drives around Melbourne in a junker with a flimsy front seat. Wry humor collides with tragedy in the third and final season as Jack learns troubling new information about his wife’s murder 20 years earlier, from which he hasn’t entirely uncovered. The execution-style shooting of an off-duty cop (in a fast-food drive-through lane) sets the mystery in motion, and it gets increasingly more sinister from there.
