The Riches (Eddie Izzard on TV! Eeee!)

Anyone else catch the premiere of "The Riches" tonight?

I adore Eddie Izzard's stand-up. I know he's got some dramatic chops as well ("The Revenger's Tragedy," an eBay-d "Day in the Death of Joe Egg" DVD)... but WOW. For every iffy movie role he's ever taken, he does something like this that just blows me away. I absolutely loved the show. It's a completely original premise, well-written, great acting, and all that jazz. I hope FX sticks with this one, because I'm smelling some Emmys here.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who saw this. If you didn't, I'd highly recommend catching a replay of it this week.

One slight nitpick: for the love of God, if you're not Southern, just don't try a Southern accent. A few of the ones I heard tonight made me cringe. Minnie Driver's was decent (I'd almost forgotten what a great actress she can be), but some of 'em... oy vey. And I've got to admit, it was really strange to hear Eddie doing a generic American accent. Still, loved the show, and felt a bit disappointed when it was over. I'll definitely be watching next week.

I was really impressed with this show and I'm looking forward to see how it plays out. The premise is original and it is a little on the dark side, but it is very entertaining.

I watched it the other night, and thought it was a really good show. Liked the fact that there were so few commericals.

I'm finally watching it now, and am completely sucked in.

I'm not quite buying Eddie's American accent, but I can live with that.

Plus, love the theme song of Gomez' "How We Operate"!

I saw that this was on but missed it. I am going to check the schedule to see if there's a repeat and try to catch it. I Eddie Izzard. Amazing comedian, simply brilliant! I don't care for Minnie Driver though but I suppose if Eddie is good enough I can tolerate HER......

Did anyone catch Eddie in My Super Ex Girlfriend? He was great in that villain role!

I'm really pumped for this show. I loved the pilot, and I can see great things coming from this.

Anyone catch tonight's new episode? This show is going to be stellar. Big improvement over an already awesome pilot episode. Looking forward to following this series.

I am patiently waiting for it to air on the west coast! I love the show, even talked several people at work in to watching it.
