Dirty Sexy Money

Premiere Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Airs: Wednesdays @ 10pm on ABC

Power, privilege and family money are a volatile cocktail.Living proof of this are the Darlings of New York City, so absurdly wealthy, they put the “upper” in Upper East Side. This preeminent family are always getting mixed up with the wrong people and finding themselves in the middle of bad situations. It’ll take a miracle to take care of the legal and sometimes illegal needs of the Darling family. That miracle comes in the form of Nick George.

As a boy, Nick watched his father surrender his freedom and family as the Darling’s trusted consigliere. Nick grew up in a troubled household where he was always second to the overpowering Darling family. Burned by his own boyhood encounters with them, he vowed never to follow in his father’s footsteps. The idealistic Nick did a 180-degree turn and became a lawyer for the disadvantaged. After the mysterious, sudden death of Nick’s father, family patriarch Tripp Darling offers Nick the opportunity to inherit the responsibility of protecting the Darlings’ secrets. The job, with an ungodly salary, will allow Nick the freedom to be an altruistic do-gooder. But he discovers all too soon that his new position requires him to be an all-around problem fixer, hand-holder, therapist and public relations expert.

What a completely awesome surprise this show was to me. Despite receiving the pilot a few months ago, I actually didn’t make a point of watching it until later this summer (my bad), but since then I’ve watched it 3 or 4 times. Yup, I loved this dirty sexy treat. DIRTY SEXY MONEY is campy and salicious in the best way possible. I loved every single minute of the pilot. You will love to loathe the morally corrupt but good-in-their-own minds Darling family. The casting was inspired which is important, because handled by different actors these grandiose characters could be cartoonish. Donald Sutherland is wonderful as the Tripp, the Darling patriarch – he’s one of those brilliant characters that is so ambiguous that you never really know just what’s really going on in their minds (think Ben from “Lost”). I missed the boat on SIX FEET UNDER but I see why Peter Krause had such fans – he’s fantastic as the conflicted Nick George.

The pilot is jammed packed as it’s crucial that the viewer meet the entire Darling family so I’m anxious to see the pacing of future episodes, but anxious in a good way…as in I can’t wait until next week!! Not only does this DIRTY SEXY MONEY make my Season Pass on TiVo, it also makes my list of Top 5 Fall shows. This is a must watch!!!
