Jack Irish: Bad Debts

Got round to watching Jack Irish: Bad Debts last night.  It was a little bitty at first as it tried to put in place a lot of back story quite quickly, but then settled down into a recognisable version of Peter Temple's novel of the same name.  It perhaps had too many short scenes, a function of trying to work in all facets of Jack's life as well as the main plot, and would have probably benefitted from being half an hour longer, or two one hour episodes.  Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable, with an excellent cast and strong chemistry amongst the actors, especially Guy Pearce and Marta Dusseldorp.  Recommended viewing.
