It’s as I mentioned earlier today, Dirty Sexy Money is a lot like Big Shots. Between the two, I prefer Big Shots. Big Shots is like Desperate Housewives for men. Just look at the Big Shots wiki page. You have all the qualifications of the characters. My wife said it and I agree: it’s a mimbo show.
In this episode, Nick tries to find out more about his dad while trying to orchestrate the lives of the Darlings. They need a lot of help. The big drama is about Patrick and if he will run for the senate. Paddy doesn’t want to but his dad Trip really wants him to.
This episode was alright, again. I still don’t really understand the premise. The character of Nick is made not to want to work for the Darlings, and yet he acquiesces to working for them, exactly as his dad. He could have an affair with Karen and he’d be in the same spot as his dad Dutch, who was having an affair with Tish.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
