Thought this continued on being a great show and was sad when I found out there was NO MORE!! Realize the actor playing Jack Taylor was a very busy guy every year since the last season of the show, and I realize how notorious GB is with their TV shows, meaning, they cancel excellent shows without any kind of notice, much to the chagrine of the show's fans and not giving ratings a consideration. Each "movie" was excellent, and nothing I've really ever seen on other Brit tv shows, and I got the biggest kick out of the last episode where there were four "Americans" on the show, one with a Southern accent. Extremely believable, so much so that I wondered if they hired American actors, but, I would listen very, very hard and you could hear some words said with an Irish inflection, but, it didn't bother me in the least, just was amazed at the actor's and actresses's ability to mimic American accent so well. At first I didn't like Darragh, and was put off by Cody going off to Boston, and I told my daughter that I would never date anyone who was doing what Darragh was doing in his bedroom when he's first introduced, but, as the first episode progressed, I found myself liking him more and more and wished the show would have continued to see more of him. A few unexpected things happened in this season, which one in particular was shocking, won't do a spoiler. Just sad there is no more to watch. I don't know where one reviewer said that the actor playing Jack Taylor appeared to just going through the motions, because, I didn't see any of that, and I read their review before I actually sat and watched Season 3. Highly recommend. The only thing I could skip on was the gratuitous usage of the "F word", which I find ridiculous to use every other word almost or when another, less overused word could have been used instead. Did use the subtitles, but, at times, didn't actually need them as the accents weren't too bad, but it was interesting to see how Gaelic ( think that's what the language is called) was spelled compared to the spoken word. Another excellent British show and highly, highly, recommend.

3 discs each with 1 story, 1 1/2 hrs long. Each story furthers the relationships among the main characters - Jack, a private eye, and Kate a police detective. The murder cases they are involved in are not related to big business and drugs but "ordinary" ones happening in the town of Galaway in Ireland. I turned on the subtitles and had no problems understanding what was said. I started watching this series with Set 3 so now need to go back to Set 1 and Set 2. Set 3 introduces a new character - Kate's cousin - Darragh - who uses his psychology skills to help solve the murders that Jack and Kate are working on. He is a young charming person with wit, a nice contrast to Jack's down to earth character.

Disappointing, quite dull, uninspired scripting. Iain Glenn appears to not really care. Just saw him in Delicious, now that was good, fun and great scenery.

Good stories. The acting feels a bit mannered at times.

Compelling series that got even better with Season two and three. Iain Glen is perfect as the gritty no-nonsense, "do-as-I-like" Jack Taylor. Glen never fails to excel in his various roles. Glad Taylor got himself sorted out after season one. Interesting plots. Look forward to seeing a season four.

Gritty and a bit long in the tooth, P.I. Jack Taylor again solves crimes in Galway in this third installment. I agree with BakerStreetIrregular, Darragh is a very welcome addition, especially considering Jack's staid attitudes and cynicism. He lends a bit of welcome comedic relief too. It has to be said that Iain Glenn gives his all to inhabit this character including serious bodily injury, which I certainly didn't see coming.

Another great season! I was sad at first about Cody leaving for Boston, but I really enjoyed Jack's new assistant, Darragh.

Another good entry for the series. Recommended. More violent/suspenseful than your typical BBC mystery. Start with Set 1 if you haven't watched them before.
