    Great series!

    Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver make this rock! Can't imagine The Riches with anyone other than Izzard and Driver. The Riches are living the dream that we all have one time or another . . . living someone elses life of luxury. Great ensemble cast. Will definitely purchase Season 2 when it is available.

    Eddie Izzard was the hook that made me watch "The Riches," but Minnie Driver and the rest of the cast (the kids are great) made me tune in week-after-week. The concept alone is unique and the writing -- a little of Eddie's comedic personality comes through -- is quite good. If you didn't catch the show on FX, do yourself a favor and watch it on DVD. Take a vacation from the major network offerings and treat yourself to this sly offering.

    Maybe I am a King?

    Many a rabid fan Of Eddie Izzard were lured to this show with delicious cookies and little will you know that you are being served a full course meal. In the Pilot this show proves that you are not watching a normal drama when you go from ad-libbed comedy to shattering drama in the course of one car accident. Watching Minnie Driver's Dahila try with everything in her to revive a dead Cherin Rich is heartbreaking. The characters are as deep as the actors that play them. Driver and Izzard really steal the American heart. Watch the gag reel! You must also watch the pilot with commentary- Izzard reveals his golf handicapp. But in the end it is the true spirit of the heart of one family trying to do all they can to stay together that will bring you to Season 2in Summer 2008.
