Tonight there was a classic line - and because it's been on and my memory is like that of a goldfish, this is not a direct quote - with Cleaver Greene saying people have sex, so why the hell is everyone so surprised that other people are doing it?
(I might have to rewatch to get that line right!)
But anyway, yes! This line is gold. Millions of magazines and newspapers are sold when there are details of juicy sex scandals...and why? It's sex. Most people have tried it. Why do they race to find out the illicit details of someone's sex life? Why are paparazzi paid a fortune for photographs and details of affairs?
Is it the betrayal that people love so much? Or is it that a secret has been revealed?
A large part of the latest Rake episode was focussed on magazines and photojournalists as Cleaver was defending a photojournalist. In a totally Cleaver way, he turned a stalking wanker (literally) into a truth-seeker and frontline hero. It was brilliant. Completely mocking our obsession with "celebrity scoops" in magazines and social media. Cynicism at its best :)
Or maybe I'm just cynical.
If you watched it, what was your take?
