What I'm Watching: The Riches

The Riches: Season 2, Episode 5 “Trust Never Sleeps” (B+)

I was quite impressed with the bit before the opening credits (which I love, by the way, in case I haven’t said it yet). The shadow inside the tent which flashes with the lightning behind Sam makes this seem a whole lot like noir, which was pretty cool. Dahlia’s dalliance with living righteously is all good and finished, which is a good thing, and Cal is getting himself in way over his head without knowing it. I would think after his poor decision making last season, he would be just a bit more cautious about trusting people. Only two more episodes to go in this shortened season – I do hope it gets renewed.
