Critic Reviews for The Riches Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (13)

What makes the new series so unique, so rich and riveting, is that at its core, it's all about America and that "American dream" Malloy wants for his family.

Sep 10, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Alternative families are in vogue right now, but FX's latest doesn't possess the requisite magic to steal our hearts.

Though the overall tone is light, there's enough darkness in "The Riches," and enough depth in the performances, to make you care about these people.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

All of this is buoyed along by some amusing writing and two strong central performances.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The Riches constantly risks unbelievability, but captivating performances by Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver as his meth-addicted wife hold it together on sheer nerve.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Creator Dmitry Lipkin delivers comedy, as pockets are picked and gated suburbia is flimflammed; but "The Riches" is most potent as a bold nightmare about identity and theft in an age of identity theft.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

That "more" never happened, and now those episodes are simply high points in a mediocre season of television.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

If the quality keeps up - the solid acting, edgy humor and character-driven suspense - The Riches may become the most relevant show of our day.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The Riches premieres strongly, with casting tailored to grab our attention.

Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Viewers who can get past... a few cartoonish supporting characters are in for a real treat. With its off-off-beat take on family values..., The Riches is the kind of TV drama that makes one think while being entertained.

Sep 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The Riches don't make the best role models. But deep down the characters have heart, and their quest for love, stability, and acceptance for who they are make them just like the rest of us.

Sep 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Created by playwright Dmitry Lipkin, "The Riches" found strong, capable leads in Driver and Izzard.... Izzard is the most impressive find.
