Amazon Says: "Terrific" —The Australian "Thrilling murder mystery" —The Sun (U.K.) Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen Self-destructive, pigheaded, and overfond of the bottle, Jack Taylor (Iain Glen, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) 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. In his new trade, Taylor finds evil at every turn: the serial murders of young female factory workers, a vicious vigilante group executing summary justice, and a sadistic nun dubbed "Lucifer" by her former charges. 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. Includes three feature-length mysteries: The Guards, The Pikemen, and The Magdalen Martyrs. Contains coarse language and violence less...

Amazon Says: Joey: The Complete First Season (DVD)Charming and single Joey Tribbiani (series star MATT LeBLANC) embarks on his own and moves from New York City to Hollywood, hoping to truly make it as an actor. Joey says good-bye to a time when his friends were his family and welcomes the chance to turn his family into his friends. After accidentally ending up in Dallas instead of taking a connecting flight to California, Joey finally arrives in Los Angeles and reunites with his high-strung older sister Gina (series star DREA de MATTEO), a strong and sexy hairdresser. While Gina shows Joey the apartment she arranged for him, her genius 20-year-old son, graduate student Michael (series star PAULO COSTANZO), who literally is a rocket scientist, arrives. Although Joey lacks book smarts, he more than compensates with his people skills, making him the best new friend his nephew could ask for. Joey finds out from his flamboyant agent, Bobbie (series star JENNIFER COOLIDGE), that the cop show he was starring in has been cancelled, forcing him to begin auditioning for roles again. When Michael asks to move in with Joey because it's difficult living with overprotective Gina, Joey is afraid to confront his sister--until he learns what a great cook Michael is. Gina is furious to find out that Michael wants to move out of her home, but Joey persuades her that her son needs to change his life, just like Joey did. She reluctantly allows Michael to move in with her brother. Meanwhile, Joey befriends his new neighbor, Alex Garrett (series star ANDREA ANDERS), a lawyer specializing in environmental law, but he soon learns that she's married.]]> less...
