'The Riches' - Best Vehicle for Eddie Izzard

I've loved comedian/actor Eddie Izzard for a long time. Rent "Dress to Kill" and you'll understand. "The Riches" -- FX, Mondays 9:00 p.m. central -- may be the one vehicle that pushes Izzard over the (good) edge. Like "The Sopranos," the characters aren't who they seem (but we want them to succeed). And like "Six Feet Under," the gallows humor keeps you coming back for more. It's a "stick it to the man" show.

Nice touch that executive producer Izzard created his younger son character as a transvestite.
