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.
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 Ri¢hes!!
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.
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.
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.
