Is THE RICHES the best TV series of all time? Possibly. But we'll never know because someone pulled the plug way too early!

Wayne and Dahlia Malloy are right up there with Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara. Passionate, volatile, Irish. Devoted to their children (in spite of the fact they've raised them to be con artists.) A classic love affair.

I won't describe the plot. Just watch the DVD's. I'll just say it's cruel to release a season and a half, then nothing. In the last episode, things are just starting to get good. There's so much promise of family confrontations, business and political intrigue, moral dilemmas, and the battling of personal demons. This story was set up like a Shakespeare play. But now we are deprived of the pay off. And I'm upset.

Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver had roles of a lifetime here. But I also thought Gregg Henry (as the boss) and Todd Stashwick (as cousin Dale) were exceptional.

I'm a fan of Nip/Tuck, Desperate Housewives, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Oz, and many other progressive dramas. But I liked this better than all of them. But someone killed it. And I have nothing more to watch. Is anyone else upset about this?

I would have watched this for years.

**UPDATE** 3/25/09

I received The Riches Season 2 yesterday and I marathoned all 7 episodes. The packaging has changed to a regular dvd case with 2 double sided discs?!?! The first season set included 4 episodes to a disc so I'm not sure what the double sided nonsense is about. Prepare to be angry/gutted/disappointed when the seven episodes are over, I know I was! Long live The Rihes!!

Great actors, great scripts, great tv....makes sense it got cancelled! Personally I am quite angry this was canned, The Riches was fast becoming one of the best shows on tv. I was excited to see where the story with Eamon Quinn was going as Wayne (or Doug) had yet to have any real challenge intellectually (Dale wasn't to hard to control was he). I will personally give Eddie Izzard money to make a movie!

We need a conclusion.

...whomever canceled this show, you should be fired for lack of vision and culture! Judging by the typical TV lineup, if it's not a cop drama, idiots being videotaped in exotic environs, or some other slapstick comedy-laden time suck, then it isn't worth air time. This is a fantastic show with a believable cast that breaks the mold of predictably lazy writing. A family of gypsies blunders into good fortune at the cost of another family's life. They take on the roles of the deceased and add their own flair to a neighborhood of rich wackos. The characters are fleshed out gradually and the acting reinforces the story elements because we feel their pain, fear and motivation. New dimensions are constantly added to each character and situations change in a heartbeat. Everything about this show is pure gold. I was very sad when the last episode left me with the biggest set of heartbreaking cliffhangers ever. So many different sub-stories: Relationship of Nina and Dahlia, Quinn and Cal, Cal and the blonde gypsy, Sam and his new girl friend, etc. Please bring this show back!

Still one of the best shows I've ever had the pleasure of watching. Hopefully some other network will pick it up and continue to produce it!

First, thank you to the folks at FX.
Not only do you continue to deliver top notch programming for grown-ups, but you also make the seasons to work counterpoint to the other networks, allowing us to watch something other than reruns for more of the year.

As season two begins, the moral dilemmas multiply and the plotlines are even more intriguing. Wayne, Dahlia and the two younger kids decide that they like being upper-class and decide to try and keep what they have despite the mounting risks.

In another thread, the Travelers also begin to play into the plotline again. Oldest Malloy son Cael decides for good that the house at Eden Falls is stealing his soul, and opts to run away back to the Travelers, who have a new college educated (from prison via (University of Phoenix) spurting his mail order philosophies in order to take control of the clan).

The new season is finding more moral and legal dilemma's for Wayne/Doug having to lie to his family and more issues with his less than bright adversary Dale. On the side of that, Dahlia decides she doesn't want to be liar any more finds herself lying to the people she loves most.

This show continues to be very good mature audience only entertainment, but not for those who are easily offended, but really you should watch this show from the pilot forward to enjoy it thoroughly.

The Malloys (the Riches) just dig themselves deeper and deeper - and then the show is cancelled! I hope they do make a movie just to tie up some of the loose ends. I always like to know how things turn out, and the story really makes us care about Dahlia and Wayne, Cael and DiDi and Sam. And what about Nina and Mom? Please tell us!

This show was so fun and the characters became part of my family. If only the series would have continued...

If you want to watch the second season looking for closure you won't get it. If you want to see some great acting by almost every single character than watch away.

One of those shows that was cancelled too early... and they didn't get the memo as there were a lot of unanswered plots still up in the air.
