REVIEW

When I first heard about Dirty Sexy Money, last year, I didn’t think I was going to like it at all. But I gave the pilot a chance and liked it, then I watched the second episode and still liked it, and so I ended up watching the entire season and really liked it. When I got the DVD I re-watched the entire first season and it was still awesome.

As Eric pointed out to me, it’s probably the most realistic portrayal of rich people on TV. Seriously, that family is messed up, but it’s so much fun watching them go through life. I almost feel happy I’m not that rich… almost.

Dirty Sexy Money is definitely one of the better shows on ABC and I would recommend you check it out (or at least tune in for season 2 on October 1st.)

The DVD of course contains some great Bonus Features. Bloopers, I can’t get enough of them and behind-the-scenes featurettes are always great if you want to learn more about the show, its cast and crew.

The bonus features on the DVD include:

The Road to Excess: Making Dirty Sexy Money – The Darling family—fascinating, capricious and undeniably dangerous. Take a unique peek into the inspiration for the most infamous clan on television, straight from the show’s creators.

Enter the Penthouse: A V.I.P Set Tour – Tour the Darling mansion and get a taste of their lavish lifestyle. This billionaire’s Manhattan home was actually built from the ground up on a Hollywood soundstage. Its dirty little secret is that there’s a penny saving surprise around every corner!

Haute Couture: Dressing the Darlings – You can’t be too rich, too thin or too well-dressed from the looks of the Darlings’ overstuffed closets. But even a make believe mogul loves a bargain, and the show’s wardrobe designers share ways to look like a billion bucks without spending one!

The Other Woman: Candis Cayne – What is it that makes Carmelita so irresistible to Patrick Darling that he would risk his family and his career to be with her? Find out in a profile of the torrid love affair between the politician and his sensuous mistress, played by Candis Cayne. Cayne shares an intimate look at her personal road to stardom and inner peace as a transgendered performer.
