Whilst Cleaver Greene's ex-wife may call him unreliable, his son will thank him for being so indulgent. To jurors he is hilarious, to judges an outrage, to a certain brothel owner a legend and to his former cocaine dealer, a tragic loss. Women like Cleaver. He has the usual prerequisites: looks, charm, brains and a sense of humour. He has experience like Casanova and cares deeply about the female orgasm. Criminal barrister Cleaver Greene is reckless, brilliant and self destructive and thats just his private life. Features episodes 1 - 4 of the series, including outtakes.

Format: DVD
Aussie comedy/drama best in years. First class acting, intelligent witty dialogue and brilliant story-lines. Rake is a character to equal Rumpole but he is young, fit, and always in trouble of his own making. Sex, drugs, dodgy clients, legal wrangles, and the crims always catching up with him too, he slips and slides out of one impossible situation into another, but you still love him to death.
Get hooked!

Human, Funny, Must Watch TV 21 Jan. 2012
By K. Knowles - Published on Amazon.com
Every now and then, TV comes up with something magical, and Rake is just must-watch TV. This series, which was produced for ABC Television in Australia, is one of the most unique comic anti-hero legal series out there.

It stars an outstanding Richard Roxburgh as Cleaver Greene, a brilliant but self-destructive barrister, a self-confessed rake that charms women in a tragic clown way and - despite his best attempts to be amoral and utterly self-absorbed - nonetheless reveals a humanity that is hard not to be enraptured with.

Each episode deals with a different and usually outlandish case that is entertaining and thought provoking enough on its own, but woven through the series is Cleaver's personal life that is complicated, real and revealing - and just leaves you wanting more.

Full of wit, charm, and feeling - with liberal does of humour and humanity (sometimes at its starkest) - this unique series wins on so many points and is utterly unforgettable. If you watch only one TV series this year, do yourself a favour and watch this!

the gum under my desk has more flavor 6 Feb. 2014
By e.m. - Published on Amazon.com
get ready for some amazing tv. be prepared to charter waters where no tv show has gone before. meet rake. hes a lawyer, hes a drunk, hes always broke, hes a gambler, he always needs a bath but always scores with the hottest chick in the room, he never does any work but walks into the court room more prepared than a staff of 50 people all who graduated from Harvard law , meet rake. you've never seen anything like this. i hope to never see it again. this show was adapted from an Australian show. isn't every part of this adopted from every tv show ever made? bleh. oh, i forgot to mention the dutiful secretary who never gets paid. dbl bleh.
