In this first episode of Gentleman Jack Crack, we get into the series debut entitled “I Was Just Passing” both written and directed by Sally Wainwright. We go scene by scene to breakdown the introductions to this wonderful cast of characters, while mixing in some history tidbits here and there. We totally didn’t expect for our episode to be this long, but we so enjoy musing about this show, and welp.
