My favorite series last year was The Riches on FX and the new season premieres March 18th.

The show is about living the American Dream, or more accurately, stealing the American Dream. In the vein of the 2002 movie "Catch Me If you Can" starting Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, The Riches is a show about a family of grifters ("Travelers") who are involved in a deadly accident and decide to take over the lives of the deceased accident victims.

The characters are original and 3 dimensional, the writing refreshing and quirky, and the cast headed by Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver is brilliant.

Rent the first season now to be caught up in time for the March 18th premiere episode.
