Critic Reviews for Rake: Season 1

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (22)

Just having Greg Kinnear puts Fox's new dramedy Rake a few laps ahead of the pack.

January 22, 2014 | Full Review…

As an actor, he [Kinnear] plays the Lovable Rascal surprisingly well, offering just enough humanity, and enough likability, to merit a second look.

January 22, 2014 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

Kinnear carries himself ably, and his character's amiable rogue presence wears fairly well for starters.

January 21, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Top Critic

Although the show offers little new in terms of either characterization or story, Kinnear's charisma and the light tone make for a diverting hour.

January 24, 2014 | Full Review…

If Kinnear can settle into this role and find a way to execute the acrobatic act of being both funny and deeply flawed, then Rake has the potential to be a modern equivalent of The Rockford Files. Wouldn't that be spectacular?

January 24, 2014 | Full Review…

The pilot is carried on Kinnear's rascally charm and is heavy on quirk.
