Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on January 24, 2014

rakeRake is a new Fox series starring Greg Kinnear as a fuckup gambling addict lawyer. The pilot’s not half bad, has a couple funny moments, a reasonably ok plot, and some hot actresses (though I’m not sure if any of them will be regulars going forward). Based on the pilot alone I’d be pretty iffy on following it further, mostly because it’s about a lawyer which is a tired TV premise, and also it’s kind of got that “wishes it could be House” vibe, which is also pretty overdone. But Larry Sanders/Rescue Me‘s Peter Tolan is the showrunner, and I generally like his work, so I’m definitely up for a few more episodes at least.
