I originally started watching this only because Eddie Izzard was in it, simply because I find him to be amazing. However, the show in itself is just phenomenal. It's very quirky, off beat and definitely filled with a dark comedy aspect. I don't know if everybody will like it, but if that's your style, you should definitely check it out. And even those who may not like it, have to at least respect how clever and original the show is.

The Riches are really the Malloys, a family of Travelers (Irish gypsies) who have stumbled on the con of a lifetime. Things have not been going well for the Malloys lately. Dad, Wayne Malloy (Eddie Izzard) has been trying to keep the family going while Mom, Dahlia (Minnie Driver) has been serving time for a con gone wrong but hasn't been doing so well. While at the Travelers' camp the family gets into even more trouble putting the whole family on the run in their battered, old RV and causing them to cross paths with the Riches, Doug and Sherene and end up taking over their lives. At first the Malloys are planning to run a quick con but soon they fall into the 'buffer' lifestyle they had always scorned. The parents decide to enroll their three kids, son Cael, daughter Didi and ...er...Sam into school. As time passes and the family finds they can survive in the buffer world and realize that the Traveler world is not the safe haven they had always found it. As Season One ends the Malloys are in danger of losing both in a cliffhanger episode that will certainly draw the viewer back for Season Two.

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.

Wow, I love this show. There is suddenly a big influx of fun, original shows and this is one of them. It's so cool and addictive and I'm hooked now.
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.

This is really a great show. I started watching it last year and couldn't look away until it was over. The characters are good at what they do, but are also flawed, which makes them human. I find them surprisingly honest, in a way, which is ironic given that their entire lives are based around a steady stream of cons and lies. It seems sometimes that the people around them lie too, they just believe the lies.

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.

This is a brilliant show. The great acting, plot, and tone really sets this show apart from other shows on television. On par with the other great shows on F/X.

First off let me say The Riches really is one of the best shows in TV history as far as I am concerned. It is fresh and original which is a rare these days. Eddie Izzard is a freakin' genius. Until now I have kept every episode on my Tivo and now I can just buy the DVD. Kudos also go to Minnie Driver for some of the best acting of her career. The story lines of The Riches have more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing.
A bargain at double the price. I can't wait.

Format: DVD
When I was a young man running my first rig in the Oil Fields in Kern county California, was having trouble with doing jobs faster than the other crews I worked with. One day the man who trained me pulled me aside and said "You don't get it... They don't want good operators, they want good liars".

In this wonderfully written and acted series, Minnie Driver and Eddie Izzard test that theory, in the world of the upper class, by "stealing the American dream". This series brings the public to a mostly unknown hidden culture in America of the Travelers (Irish Gypsies) which is something cool in a TV show, going so far out of the box of regular TV writing it's in another warehouse.

If you want something very different, "The Riches" is a show for you.
