His life can only be described as a f——in trinewrick…
18 March 2014 | by (UWS, NYC, USA) – See all my reviews

Just two eps into season two, this is looking like one of the best TV series from anywhere, ever. Was dimly aware of Richard Roxburgh as a veteran Aussie actor who's in a lot of action flicks; he's a revelation here as Cleaver Greene, a Sydney trial lawyer with a gambling habit, multiple substance-abuse issues and a private life that can only be described as a f——in trinewrick. The scripts are inventive and very funny, Cleaver's drunken harangues in inappropriate venues especially so; the cases are sometimes based on real-world causes célèbres (like the cannibal who advertised online for a dinner partner), the ongoing dramedy of Cleaver's personal life is involving (and very funny), and the ep where Cleaver gets out of a slump by defending an Assange-like activist who's charged with treason is positively uplifting. The supporting cast is amazing; Australian TV seems to have a very deep bench of beautiful actresses who can really act, starting with Adrienne Pickering as Cleaver's love interest and onetime Xena sidekick Danielle Cormack as a cougar prosecutor. Guest spots by Aussie notables like Rachel Griffiths as a racebaiting shock jock, Toni Collette as a randy politician and Hugo Weaving as the cannibal, and those crispy accents with the foot-long vowel sounds, make this fabulous show even more delightful. Looks like season three's almost halfway through its run on TV, so I'm counting the moments….
