One word......fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed the pilot of The Riches and can hardly wait for next week's episode.
Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver were captivating. The teens/children were equally good. The youngest is brilliant!
There are a lot of Irish Travelers where I live and it's hard not to be fascinated by their lifestyle and ways. I wish there was more about that aspect.
BTW, the Irish Travelers around here are probably outraged by the way the families were dressed in this show. Around here they dress to impress. Only the trendiest clothes and very expensive cars/trucks. The women are rarely seen in the same outfit and are always "made up".
Congratulations and I have to say that FX is really impressing me with their original, incredibly entertaining shows.
