The style of this series is part comedy, part drama, even melodrama, and at times borders on farce. Things usually begin realistically enough but then one slightly unlikely over the top thing happens and then another taking the viewer from feeling the anguish of the family attempts to cope with Dahlia's drug addiction to laughter as they manage to con their way out of yet another problem.
This is a truly ensemble performance, not only are the leads (Izzard and Driver) convincing in the roles but all the roles are well written and well played.Read more ›
Minnie Driver is fantastic as Dahlia Malloy who is part of a family of con artists. She is on parole from having served time in prison for petty robbery and larceny. Her and her husband Wayne are now on the move with their three kids. They're travelling in an RV when they are witness to a car crash, and making a long story short, they end up assuming the identities of a wealthy family, the Riches, and move to an upscale neighborhood in Palm Beach Florida. Wayne needs to find work to support the family's new lifestyle so his first scam begins when he tries for a job with his neighbor at his law firm.
I can't tell you in words just how good this is. It's such a cool show that you have to check out for yourself. It's fun and enjoyable and Minnie Driver is brilliant in here. I love watching how these guys get away with all the things they do and it's certainly addictive. Get yourself a copy and you'll have a new favourite show for sure.
A bargain at double the price. I can't wait.
Very strong acting and sharp writing carries this series. I've never been a fan of Minnie Driver, but she absolutely shines in this show. Eddie Izzard is just stunning as the family patriarch.
The show has already been renewed for a second season of seven episodes (fewer than usual due to the effects of the writer's strike), set to air March 18th in the States on the FX channel.
Sean P. Logue, 2007
This is a series where you never know what is going to happen next or how Wayne is going keep it all together but the love that Wayne and Dahlia have for each other and their children always help them to find a way.
Izzard and Driver are simply eloquent. Noel Fisher (Cael), Shannon Marie Woodwood (DiDi) and Aidan Mitchel (Sam) are genuine in their roles as the three Malloy children.
I can't wait for this to come out on dvd!

A few funny moments but a very rude and obverse portrayal of Louisiana and her citizens. Minnie Driver and her amazing anatomy is the only carrying factor of the show, it's... Read morePublished 23 hours ago by David Foreman
The Deeper you get into this series, the more involved I became and the broader elements of our culture this critical comedy reflected. The hero wins, but he must pay a price. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Namra
