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.
The concept behind The Riches was brilliant and I can't think of any other series to compare it with. The Riches was a unique show about Travelers (more commonly known as Gypsies) who con their way into the All American Dream: Wealth, fabulous digs, great paying job, private school for the kids, country club membership ad infinitum. It all starts with an accident that the Riches were witnesses to, but didn't cause. The family takes on the identities of the accident victims, ditching the bodies in a pond. And from there, the wild ride begins.
Eddie Izzard has some serious acting chops and is totally believable as Wayne/Doug, devoted husband to Dahlia/Cerien (played by Minnie Driver). As a dad, Izzard shows his commitment to his 3 kids, and also reveals his many flaws. He's truly fun to watch in this role. I had mixed feelings about Minnie Driver being cast as Dahlia/Cerien, but she quickly grows into the role as she grows on you. I can't imagine anyone else tackling this role. As a parolee at the beginning of the series, you see her struggle to come to terms with her good fortunes, while still feeling the pull of the Traveler life. The kids are superbly cast. The youngest, Sammy (played by Aidan Mitchell), is a cross-dresser and often appears as a girl.Read more ›
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.
