The title character in the Australian legal drama Janet King, which made its Canadian debut this week on the CBC, is a lesbian but it doesn’t affect the story much. She has an elegant short-haired girlfriend and one of her colleagues calls her a “dyke,” but the central story (so far) revolves around the machinations of men. A couple of them are cute, but we’ll have to see how that plays out. There are eight episodes. Watch it on-line at your peril; the commercials are annoying, repetitive and un-skipable. Good story, though.
