The Riches pilot available online

by Kelly Woo, posted Mar 10th 2007 2:31PM

The Riches on FXFX continues to roll out edgy new dramas and comedies. Next up is The Riches, which premieres Monday at 10PM ET. But you can watch the entire pilot now at AOL Television.

The show stars Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver as the parents of a family of con-artist grifters. It starts off with Minnie Driver's character, Dahlia Malloy, getting released from jail after two years. The Malloys roam around in their RV, looking for ways to scam "buffers" (regular people), until an accident gives them a chance to live the American Dream.

Now after the missteps of Dirt, I was initially wary of The Riches. But the pilot is very promising and reminds me of Six Feet Under in some ways.

Check back to TV Squad for a review of the premiere sometime soon.

I was definatly pulled in by the previews. Izzard was great. I had high expectations for the pilot, but they weren't really met. I still think the show is off to a good start. But I don't know how their going to build off of that very well, but there is tons of potential conflict.

This show looks great. I watched the pilot and it makes me want to see the next episode right now! Eddie Izzard is incredible. Not only was he weird-funny, as usual, but he is also really intense and emotional in this show!

I watched the AOL preview and concluded this show has potential. The versatile Eddie Izzard is brilliant, as is Minnie Driver. I place this show in the same dysfunctional family category as Six Feet Under. I'm hoping it has similar success.

Promising is a good word for it. Nothing about the pilot grabbed me, it wasn't especially funny or dramatic or anything, but I'm interested to see what comes next.
