Jack Taylor

Self-destructive, pigheaded, and over-fond of the bottle, Jack Taylor is a forty-something ex-cop trying to earn a living as a private detective in his native Galway. Taylor has burned a lot of bridges, but he still has a knack for uncovering ugly truths. Set against the rugged backdrop of western Ireland, this crime noir series depicts a country in transition, caught between the certainties of the past and the anxieties of a post-bubble future. Those same strains play out in the life of Jack Taylor, a man seeking to reinvent himself in a community with a long memory and an uneasy attitude towards change.

Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen.

Best episode so far and I think it's because they were inspired by the real life story of the Magdalen Laundries.  Even in 1971, in the USA, treatment and opinion of unwed mothers was not too different. I was an UWMM (unwed, minor mother) and even though I was not in favor of treating anyone with such prejudice and cruelty, I still believe that we need a kind way to help young adults understand that, even though the practice is accepted now, it's far from being okay for anyone involved in having children outside of marriage. The marriage is the means where the commitment is made to stay together (even though that vow is seldom honored in 2020) as a family,  It's crazy to even think or argue that one parent can do the job of two.  Many single parents are excellent parents and some even raise content, successful children who become good adults and parents, but it's the exception rather than the rule.  If any young person is warned of the difficulties of choosing to be a single parent, through such real-life stories or anything written here, it's worth the time to speak out.
