Storyline

Follows the chaotic world of criminal defense lawyer Keegan Deane. Brilliant, iconoclastic and innately self-destructive, he has a mind-numbing lack of discretion and a total inability to pause before speaking his mind. From bigamists to cannibals and everything in between, the clients Keegan loves most are those whose cases appear to be utterly hopeless without him realizing that he, himself, is perhaps the most desperate case of all. Written by Fox

Trivia

Greg Kinnear suggested character name of Keegan based on him being called "Kee" by Jack Nicholson on the set of 'As Good as It Gets (1997)'. Although Kinnear says he was excited to be given a personal nickname by Nicholson himself, he soon learned that "Kee" was the name Nicholson called anyone whose name he did not know. See more »

A pathetic attempt to be outrageous.
9 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Rake reminds me of Franklin & Bash but instead of being charming the lead character is just an ass. He belongs behind an ambulance and not in a courtroom. He is completely inconsiderate and unrealistically seems to pull a lot of women. Super fake and totally vapid show.

This is not the worst show ever but there is nothing likable about any of the characters. They have no dimension and end up getting themselves into weird situations. The cases are equally unconvincing. Also for a comedy, it was not funny. A little bit sad maybe.

There is a reason why this show only lasted one season. There are many shows that have come before it and tackled the subject matter much more successfully. Fail.
