Rake (AU): Season 1 Reviews

August 14, 2019
A minor work of genius.
August 13, 2019
The scripts are smart without tipping over that precipice where it becomes obvious the writers have forgotten their audience and are amusing themselves or, worse, trying to impress other writers.
August 13, 2019
This show couples Richard Roxburgh with tight writing --and just about every character in a skirt -- to create one of television's most likeable unlovables.
August 13, 2019
The series is so full of zinging lines it is easy to forgive the absurdity of some of the cases.
August 9, 2019
The show's pace can sometimes suffer from such indecision and self-consciousness, but the writing and acting are uniformly strong and save Rake from veering too far off track.
August 8, 2019
Teeming with sex, violence and intelligent dialogue, it pits a cunning Cleaver against crooks whose default tactic in the box is to confess to fake prescription drug addictions that were "clouding their judgment".
