    In my opinion, a great series. I watched just a few episodes and don’t suspect what will happen next.

    We love to watch films about the rich and successful. “Dirty wet money” is just about such people. The protagonist is Nick, the son of a lawyer who has worked for many years for a family of some Darlings who have enormous wealth and weight in society. After the mysterious death of his father, Nick receives an offer from the head of the Darling family, Trip, to continue his father's business. In return, they offer him favorable conditions and a lot of money. But his work is not as simple and understandable as it seems at first glance. He has to not only solve the legal problems of family members, but also take full part in their lives, learning new and unusual details, while trying to find out who is to blame for the death of his father.

    It seems to me that the series was shot very high quality and beautifully. Moreover, it not only retains intrigue, but also contains some irony. There is something to laugh at, something to keep up with, even something to think about.

    Disappointment
    Was this review helpful for you? 15/142

    Screens are clogged with TV shows made in Moscow, each channel has 5-7 pieces. And so you look with such surprise and curiosity at the American ones, which are shown deep at night. We hope that the leader of world television broadcasting will surprise us with new trends. Alas, there are enough disappointments here.

    This series is frankly boring, the action develops sluggishly, an attempt to show at least some intrigue fails, because there is no intrigue. The protagonist, a lawyer, frankly annoys with his politically correct statements. The actions of the heroes are so illogical that sometimes you just laugh at the statements of supposedly rich people.

    This series is an attempt to calm the poor people, they say the rich also cry. Look, they, like the poor, suffer, they have feelings, do not envy them! This approach is not surprising in Brazilian series, because it is removed in the country of wild contrasts between wealth and poverty. But the US is trying to look civilized ...

    I am truly sorry that such a good actor as Donald Sutherland, who once starred in the cult 'Clute', is now forced to play roles in such a dubious craft.

    The rich also cry ......
    Was this review helpful for you? 27/7

    Just an amazing and addictive series. When you watch it, it seems that each series is a separate full-length film. Dynamics, wonderful soundtracks and not very vulgar humor - everything is here. It's funny to watch how the protagonist does his job - he has to do everything: from divorce proceedings to the showdown with the girls of the son of the oligarch Darling.

    The characters of the Darling family themselves are no less interesting: Trapp - a wise old businessman, Letizia - a secular lady with secrets and their children: Patrick - a hero-lover eager to become a senator, Brian - a priest with an illegitimate child, Karen - a rich and spoiled lady , for which divorce is like going to the store - an absolutely familiar thing, and the twins Juliet and Jerry - reckless spenders - party-goers. Well, I want to highlight the wife of the main character - the actress plays just fine. And not only she, all the actors in this series do not disappoint.

    Still, the main plus of the series is that the creators manage to convey morality to the viewer - the rich also cry. Not all can be bought for money. It seems like it’s old and battered, but this series really allows you to realize the meaning of the above phrases.
    In general, everyone must see!

    PS: the only negative: the story of a family of African Americans who moved to the Soviet Union in the 70s and there came under repression seems inadequate.

    Great series. Detective story. Family story. Money story. Shocked by the quality of shooting. Usually, everything is much worse on TV shows. Good cast. The idea of ​​showing how people who own almost everything in the city live is interesting. It’s interesting how the authors spin up or spin up the plot. By the way, they don’t try to expose all the heroes in absolutely good light, rather, on the contrary, but without calling them absolutely spoiled. Yes, they are spoiled, but there is a chance to 'recover'.

    While the next episode of the series 'Dirty Wet Money' is loading, I would like to say that the name does not justify itself at all. No, this series is not about the rich and the poor, not about enmity, not about the fact that money controls our life, not about whether money is happy or unhappy. This is a love story. About its importance in our lives. About love for children, love for parents, love for friends, love for yourself, this is a story about feelings. Spoiled desires or pure impulses. That's why this story touches me. Because you can love as the son of a guy from the street, because he means so much to you, just like you do to him. You can not love your own children, because they are vain egoists. You can not love a wife who is always there, but you can love a woman who is always in your thoughts and at the same time so far away. Everything is not easy in relations between people. It corrodes the soul because you cannot understand who your enemy is and who is your friend. And the ties of kinship do not matter in this game. A brutal game in which people are the stakes, and the welfare is very doubtful. They say parents do not choose. There are also rumors that you need to hold on to relatives, because they will always help out in difficult times. But it's not always the case. A loved one, not necessarily your relative. He is close to you in spirit, and you are always confident in him. That’s what kinship is. After all, we were taught from childhood that 'carnal' intimacy is the lowest form of attachment, more importantly spiritual connection. So why can not we consider that spiritual connection dominates the gene connection in relations between people?

    Usually I do not write reviews of unfinished series when I understand that the sequel will definitely be. And then suddenly it will get worse or better further - you can not fully hope for the next seasons. It is better to unsubscribe, having an accurate and complete understanding of the product offered to us. In this case, having watched all the episodes of the two seasons with rapture, I was puzzled, because there was no news whether there would be a third season, but the hint is attached openly! Therefore, I’ll take a chance and express my opinion about the project.

    Great series! It began as an ironic saga about the Darling family, and soon grew into a dramatic detective story, without losing all the past irony and the “soapy” component. There are no good and bad ones; categorization is pointless. Empathize with each hero, even the one on whose side you do not want to be. This proves the quite acceptable fact that the story is not about money, but about people who happened to be born and live in imaginary wealth. What else struck the soul (in a good way): the main character of the picture is FALSE. It is everywhere, everyone hides something from each other, they lie, they are plotting, why the truth of their intentions is clouded until they reach the disclosure. Watching this damn interesting, because, despite the dishonesty of the heroes, each of them wants to be just happy. Their connections become entangled and untangled, passing through a tangle of betrayal, chance, profit, dirt, desire to do better.

    The scriptwriters are clearly using their talent and imagination to the full, throwing a handful of unexpected twists into each episode. Consider that the detective line, intertwined with the melodramatic, does not lose its strong seriousness. Politics also plays an important role: we are used to presenting it in the news on television, when in reality politics is something more. Here it is in moderation, but with taste.

    In a word, the series was torn away from reality for several days and clouded my brain (it is not so easy to watch all series in a row). I really look forward to the third season, because it’s dishonest to leave my viewer with my nose and not even tell if everything will return to normal.

    I recommend: it looks easy, unobtrusive, but attractive.

    Although the review is negative, I liked the series, the intrigues are not so boring, things are not so long ... For people dealing with money it can be quite understandable and logical - family members just get mad and do this is all 100. In addition to the main plot, there are funny, comical and dramatic sub-stories.

    And now about the bad, unfortunately the main intrigue of the film is predictable and watching the series you just wait when it happens, when we all officially learn the secret ... I waited, but unfortunately it turned out that the series was finished on this series.

    After watching such 'under-cooked' TV shows like this one like 'KyleHU', you’re still reluctant to watch the next one, is it really difficult to shoot the last episode where the main story issues would be closed after the project suddenly closes ... you start to miss full-length movies.

    I probably found out about this series, like so many of 'City dudes'. And now, after a couple of years, I remembered about him and decided to review and search.

    Great series. Well-chosen stories for each Darling: on the one hand, the skeleton in the closet, on the other - the desire to find happiness.

    I liked that the series has a lot of intrigue, lies and even deaths, but all this is shown not dirty.

    And, in general, watching this series you sometimes think that being an ordinary person is easier than an heir to the billionth fortune. After all, in the life of the rich everything is so unsteady, you will stumble - exile. And that is why they have to dodge and hide everything. From the poor to become rich is easier than from the rich to the poor. And by the way, I am very grateful to the creators that did not come up with a line with ruin. And for the fact that there is no eternal confrontation between the rich and the poor.

    Characters. Trip and Letizia. We must pay tribute to them for being loyal to the quirks of their children.

    Patrick. An ordinary person, just so unusually in love.

    Brian. Oh, I want to highlight this actor. How can such a hot-tempered person be a pastor? But I liked to watch him.

    Karen. Also doesn’t really boast of wealth, but just looking for herself.

    Jeremy and Julia. The twins, whose affection appealed to me, but then they split.

    Nick. A controversial character, he seems to be his own, but he seems to be greedy too. Two entities are fighting in it.

    The only negative is that characters from the series can suddenly disappear without explaining what is with them and where they are.

    But, in general, a very good and interesting series. It is a pity that there is no continuation.

    I'm not afraid to bet
