Product Description

UPC: 786936754179
DESCRIPTION: Some people say money is the root of all evil. The may be right. Nick George s whole life has been lived in the shadow of the Darling family, but as an adult he s leading the perfect life as an idealistic lawyer, until his father s suspicious death. The absurdly wealthy Darlings of New York have asked him to take over his father s job as their personal lawyer, but the money that will allow him the freedom to be an altruistic do-gooder is only part of the picture. That same money pulls him into the dubious doings of the Darling clan. Power, privilege and family money are a volatile cocktail. END


Filled with intriguing story lines and a smoking hot cast, Dirty Sexy Money focuses on a idealistic attorney wrestling with his father's death and the family that may be responsible for it. Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) stars as Nick George, whose father was the legal counsel for the Darling family and good friends with patriarch Tripp (Donald Sutherland) and his wife Letitia (Jill Clayburgh). When Nick is offered to take his father's position with the family, he goes through a gamut of emotions: He never saw his father because his dad was always tending to the Darlings' needs; he had dated troubled Darling daughter Karen when they were younger. He doesn't want to get sucked up into the drama that is their life but, like his father, he is unable to resist both the salary (upwards of $10 million) and the Darlings' tremulous connection to his dad. But that money doesn't come without strings; Nick serves as both counsel and therapist to the family. Occasionally, he is also asked to play the role of errand boy (When favored son and rising politician Patrick (William Baldwin)--who is married--wants to break up with his tranny girlfriend, he asks Nick to do it. And to give her a check to show his affection). To his credit, Nick says, "I'm not going to go into a hotel and give a tranny hooker a check." To which Patrick says, "She's not a hooker!" All 10 episodes of the debut season are included in this boxed set. Executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Dawson's Creek, Brothers & Sisters, Eli Stone), the thoroughly entertaining drama has a group of characters that keep viewers glued to the screen. Karen is a boozy socialite who switches husbands often; Patrick can't stand up to his wife, even after she kinda-sorta shoots him; Tripp and Letitia have a litany of secrets that affects their marriage and their children; Nick finds himself sparring (both verbally and otherwise) with their eldest son, the Rev. Brian Darling. And whether Nick has found a friend or foe in charming multi-millionaire Simon Elder (Blair Underwood) has yet to be determined. Dirty? Yes. Sexy? Absolutely. As for the money, it just may be the root of some of the Darlings' evil. --Jae-Ha Kim

This is a surprising show. Based on the title and subject matter, it may seem like a superficial love letter to the culture of the rich, the shallow and people famous for being famous, but it is so much more. I haven't seen the 1st season DVD yet, so this review is based on the 1st season episodes aired on ABC. Hopefully there will be DVD extras that add to the enjoyment of this set, though details haven't been provided yet.

In Dirty Sexy Money, the writers explore the meaning of extraordinary wealth and power, how those things can support an individual and give freedom, but also how they can distract people from their own true selves, their purpose and from what is really important. What does it mean to grow up in an environment with limitless resources? To live in an environment where anything, or anyone, you want can be bought? How does an individual in that environment find purpose or meaning in his/her life and relate to others? Is it a given that people in that situation will be corrupt or shallow? Or do we, as the public, just expect them to be, and so they seem to live up (and down) to our expectations? And what if you or I had the opportunity to join them, would we? And at what cost?

Those are the kinds of questions Dirty Sexy Money asks. Along the way there is a fun, rollicking soap opera-ish ride, with scheming characters, luxurious sets, beautiful people, gorgeous New York City scenery (in the pilot anyway) and amazing, amazing acting.

Sure, in this first season, there are uneven moments as the show finds its tone and its footing, but the characters and the situations will draw you in and entertain you nonetheless.

i kind of had to laugh at the reviews that are some how aghast at all the "philandering" that goes on...this isn't little house on the prairie! If you want moral fortitude, this is not the show to watch. I would have thought the title of the show...DirtySexyMoney...might have tipped one off to the fact that this family wasn't going to be an American ideal. They are a capitalist ideal certainly. The acting is brilliant, the characters are complex and likable despite their shortcomings. Peter Krause is SUPERB in his role as Nick George. Donald Sutherland plays the quintessential Patriarch with the evil side that is somehow endearing. This show is a wonderful social commentary as well on the super rich culture that reality tv can't seem to get enough of these days...Juliet (the youngest Darling along with twin brother Jeremy) is most certainly a charatature of Paris Hilton. She plays the role to perfection...and unlike Miss Hilton, she's lovable not annoying. This show is smart and funny and extremely engaging. It's one of the best shows on television. I am thrilled that this show survived the writers strike. Season two has proven to be just as engaging as season one...even though Juliet is off on a jaunt somewhere....(the actress Samaire Armstrong is rumored to be dealing with a recurring drug habit). If you haven't seen this show, I recommend it highly! As long as you aren't looking for this show to be a moral compass...it is a fun and fabulous romp. Enjoy!

This show was the best Prime-Time drama I have seen in a long time. There were a lot of character and thus a lot of story lines. This helped the show to have a little something for everyone. The show was well written and smartly so. The stories were engaging and at times edge of your seat dramatic.

Unfortunately after an amazing 2nd season was picking up steam, the show was cancelled. Supposedly there are episodes already filmed that may never see the light of day. It upsetting for faithful fans to find out that the loose ends will never be tied up with this one.

Proceed in buying this with caution, you will never know how it all ends up.

(but watch it anyway)

Picked this up because of Peter Krause's work in Six Feet Under. This has a similar feel to it, although it's not as quirky as Six Feet Under. It's very much a study of the characters and their relationships with one another. It's a first season, so a good deal of the episodes are just introduction, and with such a sizeable cast, it takes a while. But you won't be bored because there's no lack of story. Plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing who's aligned with who, and what will happen next. If you like character driven drama, with a side order of murder mystery, this is for you.

Dirty Sexy Money (DSM) was a unique and eminently watchable show that fell victim to profit demands of its broadcast network (ABC), bad timing with the television writers' strike, and a fickle viewing audience. Its combination of drama, satire, and comedy made for an excellent show that ended before its full potential could be realized.

I was initially excited when news of a DVD release manifested, but am ultimately disappointed with the result. Both the list price ($39.99) and the current Amazon price ($27.99 at time of this writing) are far too high for 10 one-hour episodes. DSM's producers and ABC should have waited to include the 2nd season's episodes in this set for the same price. Given the 2nd season ended prematurely with only 9 full episodes aired and an unknown number (rumored to be 3-4) of completed episodes stored in the proverbial vaults, a great opportunity exists to upgrade this DVD set to include all episodes, including the unaired ones, in this set. This approach would present 23-24 episodes, and more if the number of unaired episodes is more than the rumored 3-4, in one box set and essentially present a season's worth of episodes together, which is the usual number of episodes for a DVD box set. If such a set were sold for the same price as this sparse 10-episode set, it would be a much more reasonable value for money and have the added value of rare unaired episodes. Hopefully ABC and the DSM producers will consider this approach and perhaps give a discount to those viewers who already purchased this chintzy set and want to complete their collection of DSM.

ABC doesn't know what they're doing.
And why no Blu-ray release for this beautifully-produced series?
