Storyline

The Malloys are a distantly ethnic Irish/Gypsy family of traveling con artists (called 'Travlers') which make up of the patriarch Wayne, his jail bird wife Dahlia, and their three children/con-artists-in-training; headstrong Di Di, troubled Cael, and the cross-dressing Sam. After Dahlia is paroled from prison for serving time for petty robbery and larceny, Wayne tries to get money through his cousin Dale who lives at a Traveler's camp, but gets turned down. After ripping off Dale and his family, the Malloys take to the road in their RV trailer when, through a set of unusual circumstances, they witness a car accident and out of the blue, Wayne gets the family to assume the identities of the victim family, the Riches. The Malloys, posing as the Riches, move into a wealthy suburban neighborhood located in Louisiana, only to find that a glamorous life of settling down entails more than they expected.

Where the heart isn't!
13 March 2007 | by jaygailSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this as a fan of both Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver, but was disappointed.

I guess there just isn't enough foundational decency coming through in the lead characters to compel me to care about them, especially in the context of the gore, violence, near-explicit sex and general dark, edgy tone of the pilot.

I'm hoping it gets better. After all, the word 'redemption' is in Izzard's speech at the reunion.

This show needs at least the promise of a little redemption in order to (what else?) redeem it.
