This post is by way of a plea. Please, please watch this show; tell your friends about it; blog about it and somehow get the word out about it. I love it to pieces but apparently the ratings aren’t good and it probably won’t see out a second season.
What’s not to love? This everyday story of America’s favourite dysfunctional billionaires features tons of soapy over-the-top melodrama; a fabulously witty script; great acting performances from the likes of Donald Sutherland, Peter Krause and Jill Clayburgh; a vast array of male eye-candy; drop-dead gorgeous fashions; sex, murder and big business aplenty; a huge cast of deliciously amoral characters; the incredibly wonderful Natalie Zea; a banging soundtrack and the sort of interiors that only multi-billions (or a very happy set designer) can buy.
If you can imagine Dynasty meets Sex and the City with good acting then that’s DSM. Episodes 1 and 2 are currently available to view online here. You don’t need to have watched season 1 to follow season 2. Season 1 DVD is available to buy here (season 1 got a bit stymied by the writers’ strike but was still aces). Please watch it for my sake, because I’ll be DISTRAUGHT if it goes off air.
