Did You Know?


"#TheRiches It was a brilliant show, predicated on an even more brilliant idea. We were cancelled in the wake of punitive measures taken against writers who were vocal in the writers strike in 2007. Lunacy. I'd make this show again in a heartbeat." Posted on Twitter by @driverminnie Jan 16, 2019 See more »


Set in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the series clearly shows mountains in the background in several episodes. There are no mountains anywhere near Baton Rouge. The nearest "mountain" in the entire state can be found hundreds of miles away in the northern part of the state, near Shreveport. See more »

User Reviews

I am a big fan.
22 March 2007 | by chrisbentlageSee all my reviews

Before I begin, I must say I understand those of you who have said you dislike this program. It is sometimes difficult in the touchy feely world of crime investigation and counter-terrorism dramas to understand the wild notion of anti-heroes serving as a story's protagonist.

But that is exactly what has come together here. Make no mistake, the "heroes" of this television program are low down, dirty criminals. Criminals without regard for anything or one except themselves. Criminals who off their own grandmothers to profit on the sale of a gently used pacemaker.

In my experience, there is one other television show that this combination character malice and despair come together to make a wholly entertaining program. That show is Six Feet Under.

With the sublime dark and almost tragic comedy underlying and fantastic character performances (I know the accents are a little off), this show promises something on television to those of us still grieving from the loss of Six Feet Under.

If you were a fan of Six Feet Under, or if you appreciate the intricacies of dark comedy; where the goal is not entirely a plot to make you laugh, I believe you will very much enjoy this show.

Give it a look see.
