@jayeless In general and over time these things are improving, I believe. But still not always. 😒 I haven't seen Rake.

@jayeless for a show centered on a randy male barrister, it's perhaps not a surprise that the female characters would revert to patriarchal stereotype... do you know if the writers are male or predominantly male? In any case, the only way to change that is to see it when it happens and acknowledge what is happening. Otherwise, it just flies under the radar. Now, I wonder if I can get the program here in the United States. Could use a good laugh:)

@mbkriegh Indeed, I believe the show's writers were all male. Something that itself should be different in this day and age 🙂 I do know that there was a short-lived US remake of "Rake" that might cause some confusion in search results, but hopefully the Australian version is available to watch somewhere there!
