** Fiona is the responsible sibling to her flakey younger sister Kate. Their other sister Emma is in between.


Added DiffLines:

* ShaggyDogStory: [=JoJo=]'s love triangle with Dylan and Bobby culminates with the latter giving her an ultimatum. She finally admits that "we're just children together" and gives up on the crush she's had for two years.

** It did seem very forced that the new owner in the second series was ''yet another'' London blow in. Are there no other cities in the ''Raw'' universe?

* TheCharmer: Bobby

to:

* TheCharmer: BobbyBobby is good for charming the ladies.



* EveryoneMeetsEveryone[=/=]InMediasRes: A boatload of new characters suddenly arrive in the first episode of series 4. Kate and Fiona's father and sister suddenly rearrive in their lives bringing in-progress-offscreen plotlines with them. A produce-supplier turns up who coincidentally happens to have a history with Fiona. New recruit Philip has a dramatic past he's trying to escape from. And in episode two Geoff's old friend Selena arrived on his doorstep out of nowhere.

* HardGay: Geoff
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Geoff
* TheLadette: [=JoJo=]

to:

* HardGay: Geoff
Geoff who is gay but is pretty aggressive, and not remotely camp.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Geoff
Geoff is a dick in his first two seasons, but softens through his relationship with Pavel.
* TheLadette: [=JoJo=][=JoJo=] with her tomboyish name and hard drinking habits, and is thought of as OneOfTheBoys by Bobby.



* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl/ UptightLovesWild: Deconstructed with Shane and Kate's relationship. It's fun at first but it ultimately fails because Shane wants a family while Kate wants to continue her wild lifestyle. The former seems to be the case with Shane's parents - and it goes through similar problems but they're ultimately together again by the end of the series.

Not to be confused with [[WWERaw WWE Monday Night Raw]][[note]]Though amusingly enough, season 1 ''did'' air on Monday nights in Ireland. At the same time Raw is shown in the US (9 o'clock GMT).[[/note]]

* ActorAllusion: A RunningGag in season 1 is people mistaking Pavel for Polish when he is Czech. The character was originally written as Polish but the nationality was changed when Czech actor Krystof Hadek was cast.



* DefrostingIceQueen: Geoff is a male example. Comparing his season 1 behaviour with how he is now in season 4 the difference is astonishing.

* FakeBrit: [=JoJo=] and Shane for a [[UsefulNotes/TheTroubles debatable]] value of 'Brit'; they are from Belfast but Charlene [=McKenna=] was born in Monaghan and Keith [=McErlean=] is really from Donegal. Both counties ''are'' in Ulster but not actually in UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland.



* MeanBrit: Max in season 5.

* MeanBrit: Max in season 5. Tanya in Season 1 is a borderline example, but she's soon shown in a more sympathetic light.

'''''Raw''''' is an Irish {{Dramedy}} focused on the young, good-looking, hard-partying staff of a hip Dublin restaurant, named 'Raw'. Uniquely (by the standards of Irish television), most of the characters are foreigners - only four of the eight main characters in series one are Irish (and two of those four are from UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland and thus technically immigrants). Arguably, this is a case of TruthInTelevision. But by series three there are only two properly non-Irish in the lead cast.

* BlondesAreEvil: Rebecca, to auburn-haired [=JoJo=]. Kate as well. Though in series three Fiona went blonde too, but didn't go evil. By series 4 the haircolour=morality idea kinda goes out the window, though Kate does act like an AlphaBitch in series 5.

* LoveDodecahedron: The show makes GreysAnatomy look chaste. In the space of six episodes Jojo has lusted after Bobby, who was lusting after Rebecca, who was going out with Mark, Jojo tries to get over Bobby by getting Pavel drunk enough to bed him, but instead Pavel goes off with Geoff. While this is happening Shane has left his wife, and sort of entered a timid romance with Tanya (Mal's wife) but they opt not to pursue it, partly because his wife's come back. At one point there are two same-sex dates going on in parallel. One marraige is rekindled and then dissolves the next day. Another dissolves and is then rekindled the next day. An while all this is happening there's the comic relief of Tiny and Richard, two almost-mute hetero-life-partners. in ''six episodes''. The hormones level off in the second season though.

* BritainIsOnlyLondon: The show, though set entirely in Dublin (and thus not even in Britain), is rather strangely fixated on London. At least four main characters have lived and worked in London before coming to Ireland for a fresh start.

** As well as Fiona having got a job there twenty years earlier.



* CommutingOnABus: Geoff spends the first few episodes in Season 5 away and only making appearances via Skype chats, but comes BackForTheFinale



* DemotedToExtra: Geoff for the first half of series 5.



* UsefulNotes/{{Dublin}}

to:

* UsefulNotes/{{Dublin}}UsefulNotes/{{Dublin}}: The restaurant is set there and the city setting provides a good aversion of the {{Oireland}} trope.



* LighterAndSofter: Season 2 dropped a lot of the extra nudity, cursing happened less frequently, drug references disappeared and violence became tamer.

* HappyEndingOverride: Season 4 ends with Fiona and Ed finally hooking up after years of TheOneThatGotAway. First twenty minutes of season 5, she dumps him and gains sexual tension with Max.

* HappyEndingOverride: Season 4 ends with Fiona and Ed finally hooking up after years of TheOneThatGotAway. First twenty minutes of season 5, she dumps him and gains sexual tension with Max. Likewise Season 1 ends with Bobby and Rebecca hooking up after a misunderstanding kept them apart. They've broken up already by Season 2's premiere.



* NeverTrustATrailer: A lot of Season 2 previews heavily featured the line from Geoff to Fiona "I have found the sexual tension between us intoxicating" - hyping up that the two might become a couple (and that Geoff might be BiTheWay). In the show it's just one moment of sarcasm and nothing else.

Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Rebecca, the posh and articulate DaddysGirl. She abruptly snaps in the first episode after Jojo insults her and she does '''not''' take news that Bobby has apparently cheated on her well. Additionally it's ''her'' idea to stage a break-in at the restaurant to get Bobby's rent money.


Added DiffLines:

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Subverted with Emma, Fiona's teenage sister. Her introduction is her father telling us that she wants to leave school early - and he wants Fiona to give her a job in the restaurant to show her how hard the working world is (hoping she'll go back to school). Except she ends up loving the work and shows some nice maturity for her age. The bratty daughter in the family seems to be Kate - and even she's still pretty competent.


Added DiffLines:

* TheGhost: Eddie, Bobby and Jojo's friend who worked in the kitchen. He gets busted with the police in the first episode and is never seen.


Added DiffLines:

* LikeBrotherAndSister: Bobby and Jojo, at least from the former's perspective initially.


Added DiffLines:

* MeanBrit: Max in season 5.


Added DiffLines:

* UnrequitedLoveSwitcheroo: Jojo fancied Bobby in season 1. After splitting him and Rebecca up, she realises it amounts to nothing and goes after Dylan. In the meantime Bobby develops feelings for her.
