| Claudia Karvan effortlessly shoots onto my list of top actresses
Something's going on here. First Rake and now Newton's Law. These Aussies have a flair for engaging adult entertainment that I don't see stateside. Rake may be my all time best find, but this new legal comedy, led by one of the most charismatic women I've ever seen, is at least as rewarding.

The comedy revolves around a barrister who has one unpredictable teenage daughter, who is separated from her environmentalist husband and just getting back to working in a law office again. Thing is she's so winningly wise she manages to triumph when you would expect anyone to fail. After the first few episodes I was wondering why we can't produce women like this.

If there's anything negative to say about the series it's that the cast have a strange sense of timing that's hard to describe but that's easy to become accustomed to. Our legal series seem a bit neurotic compared to this Aussie offering. I can't wait for the next season and I'm looking to find more of Karvan's work.
