Storyline

Follows the chaotic world of criminal defense lawyer Keegan Deane. Brilliant, iconoclastic and innately self-destructive, he has a mind-numbing lack of discretion and a total inability to pause before speaking his mind. From bigamists to cannibals and everything in between, the clients Keegan loves most are those whose cases appear to be utterly hopeless without him realizing that he, himself, is perhaps the most desperate case of all.

Trivia

The Los Angeles Times' Mary McNamara stated "Rake owes more to the increasingly humane tone of family and female-based comedies like Modern Family (2009) and Parks and Recreation (2009) than Rescue Me (2004), which could (fingers crossed) indicate a similar journey to the light for the ever-popular tortured white male."

give it a go!
29 March 2014 | by rrickbrickSee all my reviews

I have enjoyed the Aussie version for 3 seasons now. And though similar story lines, I have quite enjoyed the American version and twist. At this point Clever Green is still my "fav" but I am a fan of Kee and hope it does well.

I don't know if the creators intend to mirror the oz version or not but it would be nice to see them deviate and take a truly USA twist. Some may argue it has, but I am a huge fan of the OZ version and want the popularity to grow so they can keep the character going! If you are even mildly amused with season one - just hold on because you wont believe what is going to happen next to poor poor Kee... Let's hope they don't scrap it before it hits its stride. I believe it could be bigger than House. To bad the USA censors are still locked in the 20th century! hint hint
