DVD Review: Rake Season 3
The end of season 2 of Rake saw our anti-hero Cleaver Greene being sent to jail. As far as cliff hangers go, it was pretty big, but also a little unsettling. Would season 3 kick off with Cleaver having been released off season, or would we have to endure a totally different approach to the series, with Greene being a pretend lawyer in prison? As it turns out, a bit of both.
The season kicks off with Greene’s future not looking too hot but once out, things do start to look you for the lovable rascal. Up, down and sideways. But good old CLeaver is back in his stride, even though the outside world has been turned upside down whilst he was languishing in jail.
Season 3 is all about Cleaver Greene trying to get hid life back in order, but in his usual fashion, CLeaver is two steps forward, one step back.
This season has the usual CLeaver humour, but it also has some real emotion and heart.
