Win Season One of The Riches

The Riches: Season 1 DVD cover art

Needcoffee faves Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver head up The Riches. Well, the family pretending to be the Riches, because they are really the Malloys and head up a family of con artists who just happened to have a run-in with The Riches. Um. Literally. Which turned out to be fatal.

And now they’re trying to live it up while not being found out or found. This is on the FX Network and has apparently been renewed for a second season, which will arrive if this writer’s strike thing ever clears up.

But take this opportunity to catch up on the show and win a copy. We’ve got five copies standing by for you to win. Well, win one of them. No sense being greedy bastards. Mostly.

My Advice: Rent it.

Martin Blank (Cusack) has received the dread call. You know the one I’m talking about. The ten year high school reunion call. But Martin is not your average prodigal son. You see, he’s a professional killer and he’s good at his job. He disappeared into the military after high school and well, here he is. But he feels he’s losing his edge, and to make matters worse: not only is he face to face with the girl (Driver) he ditched at senior Prom, but an enterprising fellow hitman (Aykroyd) wants Blank to join his new professional killer’s union–or else.

Features:

My Advice: Own it.

When a demon invades his village and sets in motion events that are certain to eventually claim his life, Ashitaka (voiced by Crudup), must accept his destiny and go forth to find the origins of the demon and end the evil. On his journey he meets the beautiful yet savage San (voiced by Danes), who, with her family of wolves, is at war with the Lady Eboshi (voiced by Driver). Eboshi wants all the wilderness destroyed so she can mine for iron ore, whereas San is the forest’s protector. They want to kill each other. Out of all of this conflict, Ashitaka must somehow find a way to bring all the sides in this war to peace–lest no one survive.
