The second episode was indeed better than the first.

Though, I missed something, I think, regarding the younger son?

Eddie is amazing in this part. I can't wait to see what happens.

Did anyone notice in the credits Eddie is Exec Producer?

The deal with the younger son, errr....Sam, is that Eddie is a cross dressing transvestite and I believe having the boy doing same in this show is Eddie's personal touch , probably what he wished he could have done at that age, or that being the age he realized he felt a bit different. I think they are trying to be subtle about it.

It's a good show, I am enjoying it.

That does make sense, yeah. Thanks

There's a short interview with Eddie in the new TV Guide about the show as well, he touches on the cross-dressing a bit.

Good episode last night. Minnie's character is finally starting to come together.

That whole scene on the cell phones at the end was fantastic. Minnie was great, but Eddie's part was more difficult, I think, and he pulled it off beautifully. I also can't tell if his accent is getting better or if I'm just getting used to it.

I'm worried about this show's prospects for a second season, though. After really strong ratings for the pilot, viewership has gone down significantly (sort of like what happened with "Dirt," a show I'm glad I never watched.) Dammit.

If some of you who enjoy the show and didn't know of Eddie Izzard before, make sure to catch him in his comedy specials, all of which are available on dvd and he was also in that movie My Super Ex Girlfriend. I love the Riches, and hope it continues. Altho I don't care for Minnie Driver, I do think she's doing a good job with this role. (I can't believe I said that!)

All of which are absolute classics although some people seem to prefer "Dress to Kill" to others.

You're right....I'm not too fond of Minnie Driver either, but she's not as annoying here as she always manages to be.

There was a The Riches marathon on FX this weekend so I watched all the episodes again. I really love this show. Can't wait for the newest episode and see how they get Doug/Wayne out of jail!

We'll just keep you in the dark about what happened Tiny!



Actually let's see.......The old guy got taken out in the woods and left to die by his ungrateful son. Doug sprung his daughter from jail and he himself showed up to the jail drunk as he'd been out drinking with the boss. Sherene also showed up at the jail and managed to get their daughter out without a record with an envelope of cash and promises to the jailkeeper. They're now figuring out what to do next..............

And you can see the show over as they re-run the episodes on FX so check your local programming when it will be on (Fri/Sat nights usually)

It was a good episode Next episode they go to the backwoods, they go "home" in the RV for the old man's funeral.
