TV Recap: The Gods of Wheat Street, S01E01

The first episode of this new Aussie drama shows promise to be the next big thing on TV.  For those of you playing along at home, the title The Gods of Wheat Street is titled as such because every character has the name of a god from somewhere in history.  Very clever, my ABC loving friends. Odin (Kelton Pell) is […]

TV Recap: Rake, S3E8

The curtain has fallen in a very strange way dear Rake-on-ites. When I said I wanted Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) to have it all and then lose it unexpectedly in a mishap, I didn’t mean I wanted him to: Get the girl Get the work Get his family back on track Everyone to live happily ever after- except Barnyard (Russell Dykstra) […]

TV Recap: Rake, S3E7

Oh dear! Roger’s (Martin Sacks) completely lost his shit. The day of the wedding has now turned into a siege; the police are outside as Roger waves his pistol around and there, of course, is Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) making it so much worse with that smart mouth of his.  Roger’s defense, now caught out as a drug dealer to professional […]

TV Recap: Rake, S3E6

Episode 6 of Rake is my all-time favourite!  It was absolute comedy gold. Poor Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) is used to having his way with women until he injures Felicity (Jane Allsop) on three separate dates. Head bump. Broken fingers and finally a broken nose from ‘walking into a door’.  The cops think that Cleave is beating her and take no […]

TV Recap: Rake, S3E5

You have to give credit where it’s due.  Nicole’s (Kate Box) mum, the Polish speaking lady, is absolutely hilarious.  Everything she says is insulting and abhorrent.  She is like Nicole’s inner voice speaking, voicing her biggest fears.  Absolute gold! Meanwhile, Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) has got four new jobs.  A man who sent pictures of his privates to his ex.  A […]

Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) is back in the courtroom and for once he as actually representing two old guys who are innocent!  With a little help from Mal’s sister, who lies on the stand (these guys are friends of our dearly departed Malcolm) Cleaver gets them off.  His courtroom antics are almost unbearable to watch as he puts on an ‘old […]

TV Recap: Rake, S03E03

I never thought I would see the day when Cate Blanchett would be imitating Richard Roxburgh playing Cleaver Green.  There’s definitely something about a psychotic lesbian on meth on film that makes everything in the world good again. Our bad boy Cleave is up to his old tricks again.  Smoking, drinking, drug snorting and gambling….and that’s just in one night!  […]

TV Recap: Rake, S03E02

Oh how I love thee Rakey McRake. We are only two episodes in and I already have wet my pants laughing (bladder leakage is a serious issue ladies of the ABC, as I’m sure many of you are aware!) it’s always worth it for Rake.  Sunday night’s episode saw our beloved Cleaver Greene (Richard Roxburgh) finally get out of jail after […]

TV Recap: Rake, S3E01

Cleaver’s baaaack….. and he’s not enjoying prison life very much at all. Our poor old Cleave (Richard Roxburgh) has found himself a prison roommate called Malcolm, portrayed delightfully by the talented and wonderfully long haired Dan Wylie, who insists that he sleep next to Cleaver and touch him whenever he feels a bit lonely. Cal McGregor (Damien Garvey) has turned […]
