I've tried a couple of times to start watching Rake and have not gotten past the terrible previews and lousy first minutes. If it is worth it, maybe I will hunker down and watch enough to get to the good part. Seems a far cry from Leo McKern and Rumpole.

Russian Doll is just out and very good.

Speaking of Netflix streaming and binge watching, am I the only one for whom shows run together and a few months later can't tell you one reasonable thing about series I watched? I think there are two factors at work. First, there is so much content and in every category there are similar series, making it more likely that they blend together. Second, with the weekly series format, you anticipate the next week and look forward to it, so it has a bigger impact than just going onto the next streaming episode. Of course, another factor may be GOS Syndrome.

GOS = getting old sucks

From the series description, that's what I thought might have been the show's inspiration...

A kind of "hipper" (and raunchier) version of Rumpole Of The Bailey...

Finally watched the first episode of Rake last night...

I thought it was hilarious... :D

You can be a world renowned economist for 20 years, but you eat just one person...

Hugo Weaving (Lord Of The Rings, The Matrix) was particularly good as the economist/cannibal...
