Storyline

Charlie Haverford is a scammer with a small chain of fortune-telling storefronts and contracts building tricks for a family that controls the business in the greater chunk of Los Angeles. A blow to the head from a client's angry boyfriend intersects with a hypnosis session while auditioning a new "clairvoyant," and suddenly, a man whose entire life has been based on fraud begins to see and feel some very real and fundamental truths. Charlie's wife Linda is sick and tired of their mediocre life and wants to break away from Fonso, the single father who runs the Marks family's psychic empire, and controls the Haverford's future. Rossellini co-stars as Rita, the cunning, seductive, and sadistic matriarch of the Marks clan. Written by Anonymous

Binge-worthy and sometimes cringe-worthy
25 December 2017 | by deeana-78424See all my reviews

I binge watched seasons 1 and 2, and I am hoping that there will be a season 3 because I am hooked. You have to remember that it is a dark comedy, so it is not trying to portray reality, but satirize elements of reality such as psychics, new age motivational speakers, gypsy families, crime families, and blend them all together into a violent dishonest dangerous interactive soup, that swirls around some innocent naive teenagers who are caught up in the horror of Romany tradition. While it is satire, you just do not know if at the heart of it all, whether the visions that Charlie has after a blow to the head are real, valid evidence of actual psychic phenomenon, while on the other hand the storyline seems to invalidate real psychics like John Edward. Towards the end of season 2, Jeffrey Donovan looks, sounds and performs so much like John Edward, that I began to feel that the series was aimed at John Edward. However, in this comedic version of reality, Charlie has a team relaying messages to him based on research that they have done from the internet social media, which did not even exist when John Edward was a popular TV celebrity. Anyway, if there is a Season 3, there are some plot lines left hanging, and it could all end as the season ended, or take everything to another level. However, the main theme seems to be that everything is a con and nothing is real.
