Editorial Reviews

Pitted against Lipstick Jungle during the 2008 TV season, Cashmere Mafia holds its own with a familiar but still welcome focus on four powerhouse New York women whose fierce devotion to their jobs is matched only by their unwavering friendship with each other. Helmed by Darren Star (Sex and the City), Cashmere Mafia focuses on the lives of magazine publisher Mia Mason (Lucy Liu) and her friends Zoe Burden (Frances O'Connor), Juliet Draper (Miranda Otto), and Caitlin Dowd (Bonnie Somerville). Zoe and Juliet--both married with children--juggle their jobs as high-powered executives with frenzied family lives. While Mia searches for love with a colleague, a brain surgeon, and a manny, cosmetics executive Caitlin questions her sexuality and finds a relatively stable relationship with another women. There are some plot points that go nowhere: a sex tape, a pregnancy, a fashion show disaster. But the core group shares wonderful chemistry. While Liu is meant to be the show's star, Otto, with her icy, red-haired good looks and regal voice, has the most compelling scenes. As the cuckolded wife with a n'er-do-well husband, Otto injects depth and emotion to Juliet, who has to work out in her own mind that presenting a happy image is no substitute for actually being happy. Thanks to the 2008 Writers Strike, the series is truncated to just seven episodes. The sad thing is that the show was canceled just as the writers began to develop the characters into interesting women, rather than high-heeled caricatures we've seen before. Often compared to Sex and the City because of the female cast, the New York setting, and the fashionista wardrobe, Cashmere Mafia doesn't touch Sex at its peak. But it hints at enough "what could have beens" to make viewers wistful that the series didn't get a second season. --Jae-Ha Kim

Product Description

Set in glamorous New York City, four women stay close as they strive for success in the business world. Affectionately known as the Cashmere Mafia, they rely on each other for support in both their careers and their often- tumultuous personal relationships. Publisher Mia (Lucky Liu), CEO Juliet (Miranda Otto), top business executive Zoe (Frances O'Connor) and key marketing executive Caitlin (Bonnie Somerville) are bright, driven and dedicated, supporting each other through rocky marriages, rival colleagues, kids' recitals and the hunt for the perfect loft. Their ambition comes with a price - although they consistently outpace their male colleagues and husbands in salary and title, they must watch out for scheming rivals, eager to bring them down. But how better to climb to the top of the corporate ladder than with your buddies at your side?

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylishly fun television September 6, 2008
Format:DVD
Quite the feisty little show. I loved the charisma each woman brought to the small screen. Definitely followed the runway flair of Sex and the City but had a more corporate focus and less of a sexual hunger. Glad it's coming back mid-season to finish off the first season at least. Hope there's more to come!

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked the show, but... October 1, 2008
Format:DVD
I'm sorry, but I can't see buying this DVD for 7 episodes.
Maybe when it drops down to $14 or so it will make sense, but its not
like they have a bunch on unbroadcast episodes that I feel I must see.

4.0 out of 5 stars SATC Updated for Working Adults December 30, 2008
By Bekka
Format:DVD
I loved this show, and was really sad it wasn't renewed. The updated characters were much more realistic than SATC but still rocked the couture. Two of the women are executive moms, and from Zoe locked in the closet trying to have a conference call while her kids run wild, to Miranda's spot-on commentary about the tension between her type and the stay-at-homes, I thought the series was an excellent update from the "40-something but still buying shoes and renting a studio and sleeping around and not sure if I want to get married blah blah blah" of SATC. Cashmere Mafia showed you can be educated, act your age, have a career, have kids and still look fabulous. Juliet's character is the best by far - she brings depth and feeling to a role that could have gone brittle and frigid. Although my favorite line goes to Lucy Liu while ripping an Alexander McQueen scarf off her ex-fiance's girlfriend, "Enjoy the bounce!" I LOVE that these are intelligent women who think on their feet and excel (for the most part) at their high-powered jobs rather than staggering around trying to find the front door like Carrie at Vogue. Maybe that's what killed it - people didn't want to believe it was all possible...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ended Way Too Early March 5, 2010
Format:DVD
As a diehard Sex and the City fan I avoided this series like the plaque fearing that I would be mortally appalled by another hackneyed rip-off. But I have to say I was amazingly surprised at how much originality and ingenuity this show has. The similarities are obviously there; four fashionably high profile women counting on each other to maneuver through a male dominated Manhattan, but where SATC focused on the women's love lives with their careers rounding out their identities, Cashmere Mafia is almost the opposite where it focuses more on the women's careers with their personal/love lives rounding out their identities.

Akin to other workplace comedies like "The Drew Carey Show" or "It's A Living", the majority of the story lines revolve around the protagonists' workplace and we're so intrigued by how they handle themselves at work, we are curious to see how they react after they punch the clock and go home.

It only lasted for seven episodes and I never caught a glimpse of it until after it was cancelled but now that I have I would strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys workplace comdies or shows with strong female leads. Outside of just about every scene with Caitlin (Bonnie Somerville playing an unbelievably ditzy marketing executive who gets caught up in boring plot lines that go nowhere up to and including questioning her sexuality in the DEBUT EPISODE... here's a hint, if we don't know you yet and the only people you find attractive and are kissing are of the same sex... you're gay, which isn't a problem, just don't be BORING and gay) the show actually does have some legs of it's own, and I very much regret that I won't get a chance to see where these women would have gone.

Quiet shallow albeit entertaining. I have watched the first disc but the second one can wait. Not crazy about it, did not fall in love with any of the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Sex in the City September 18, 2008
Format:DVD
This show was much better. At least everybody wasn't sleeping with everybody and they didn't look like cheap hookers. The show was great, they should bring it back.

It is a good series however I am not sure that the casting was the best. It was also a bad decision to have basically the same situations than in Lipstick Jungle.
