You can't keep a good show down!

  • Dec 29, 2007
This is really a great show. I started watching it last year and couldn't look away until it was over. The characters are good at what they do, but are also flawed, which makes them human. I find them surprisingly honest, in a way, which is ironic given that their entire lives are based around a steady stream of cons and lies. It seems sometimes that the people around them lie too, they just believe the lies.

Very strong acting and sharp writing carries this series. I've never been a fan of Minnie Driver, but she absolutely shines in this show. Eddie Izzard is just stunning as the family patriarch.

The show has already been renewed for a second season of seven episodes (fewer than usual due to the effects of the writer's strike), set to air March 18th in the States on the FX channel.
