What I'm Watching: Dirty Sexy Money

Dirty Sexy Money: Season 1, Episode 5 "The Bridge" (B+)

Finally my favorite Darling, Brian, has a meltdown after his bible stories encourage his son, a.k.a. Gustav, to spill the beans to Brian's wife. The more and more I think about it, I love all five of the Darling siblings equally. William Baldwin, Natalie Zea, Glenn Fitzgerald, Seth Gabel, and Samaire Armstrong infuse each of them with a very similar elitism and whiny energy. The twin bashes are so ridiculously extravagant, and it is good that this show knows when to make fun of itself (Juliet says "let them eat cake" as she storms out of her "Marie Antoinette"-esque birthday party). The security of this show is that, in the end, it comes back to the drama. The entire episode may be full of hilarious moments, but by the end credits, some serious realization or powerful moment will have occured. Now let us find out more about this Simon Elder, shall we?
