THE RICHES
The Malloys, a family of gypsies, go for the long con — Wayne (Eddie Izzard) and Dahlia (Golden Globe nominee Minnie Driver) pose as a dead lawyer and his wife — and move from a mobile home to a McMansion. MUST-WATCH EPISODE The pilot set the perfect tone for the blackly comic FX series; later shows rely too heavily on the we’re-gonna-get-caught setup. CHOICE EXTRA Hearing Izzard detail swindles like ”the Flattened Pickle” in a set of webisodes kinda makes a grifter’s life sound enticing. B+
