#7. The Riches
A family of backwoods grifters on the run comes across a fatal car accident, and they do what comes naturally: swipe the dead man's identity and the McMansion he was about to relocate to. So begins a darkly rollicking story of opportunity, identity and class. (Think of it as The Beverly Shillbillies.) Like any daring con, The Riches constantly risks unbelievability, but captivating performances by Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver as his meth-addicted wife hold it together on sheer nerve. The show's premise is criminal, but its spirit all-American: If you believe it, you can make it true.
