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.

Well, you can add `The Riches' (as well as `Damages') to that short list. As we head further into season two I feel compelled to write my review of the first season before too much blurs together.
Like I said, following a show all season long seems like a daunting task for me. When that show sinks its claws into you and refuses to let go though, you find it much easier to plop down in front of the TV every Tuesday night. That's how things went for me with `The Riches'. After deciding the `Nip/Tuck' was so behind me I needed to find something to fill that void. I happened to stumble onto a encore showing of the pilot for this new `provocative' show called `The Riches' and within the first few minutes I was hooked. Watching this cute little girl con someone then turn around and reveal that he was a cute little boy was enough for me; I was in.
The shows premise is that of a traveling family (modern day gypsies), the Malloy's. Dahlia has just been released from prison and her husband Wayne and three kids (Di Di, Cael and Sam) have come to bring her home.Read more ›

Minnie Driver must be desperate to have taken this assignment. Bad acting. Ridiculous story-line. It doesn't hold my interest. I can't believe there are 2 seasons.Published 12 days ago by Vinnie's Mom
