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.

different and brilliant
13 March 2007 | by (Mojave Desert, California) – See all my reviews

CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS I must respectfully disagree with previous posters. I thought this debut was astonishing. It's a fish-out=of-water story with a difference, a pitch-black comedy with excellent writing and acting, and a deliciously bizarre premise. No, the Malloys/Riches aren't a typical or inherently sympathetic bunch; neither are the the Bundys, or the Sopranos, or many of the characters on Rescue Me or The Shield. It doesn't matter if they're not likable (although I think they are); it matters that they are interesting. And the fact that the parents are married, love each other and love their kids is good enough for me. I am going to be very interested to see how they manage to pull off the ultimate con: pretending to be -- maybe even becoming -- exactly the type of people that they have spent their lives ripping off.
