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.

Finally, something to replace the void left by Six Feet Under!
13 March 2007 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

Wow, I'm so excited! The pilot aired tonight and it was fantastic. Since I'd only seen the previews very recently, I wasn't sure of the plot and didn't have much time to build any anticipation over the content. But seeing that Eddie Izzard was playing the lead, I knew that I HAD to check it out. So glad I did, and thankful that considering the lack of pre-show advertising, I didn't miss it altogether.

I don't think it would be a spoiler to say that the premise is based on a gypsy family (travelers) that decide to make an effort to "go straight" and live the "american dream" by seizing an opportunity that presents itself without warning. Like Six Feet Under, the show's content is comprised of many genre's (drama, comedy, adventure, sarcasm, etc). It has exquisite casting with great chemistry, and enough quirkiness to keep you guessing.

If you've been missing the quality and uniqueness of entertainment that SFU provided, you should not be disappointed in this new series.
