  • The likability of a lying, cheating, essentially egomaniacal criminal defense lawyer is a stretch in the first place. It takes a lot of grinning and tousling from Kinnear to make it work. Show More

  • [Greg Kinnear's] charming enough and funny enough to make it work. If only the writing can rise to his abilities. Show More

  • "He's a lawyer--but with a twist!" is not a formula that the big networks will ever stop trying to perfect. But the execution of that idea isn't quite up to par in the first episode of Rake. Show More
