One of the better new series to premiere, last year, "DIRTY SEXY MONEY" has been released on dvd by BUENA VISTA. "DIRTY SEXY MONEY" stars Peter Krause as the lawyer uncovering and protecting dark secrets of the "DARLING" family, one of the wealthiest families of New York. His father, before dying, held the position, and while Nick George(Krause) finds himself questioning his decision of employment as more info comes to daylight, he also gets a bigger view of opposing families and the corporate world, and while the twists, affairs, and peculiar proclivities of this world, often bring a soap-opera mentality to the series, it's actually a much better series than "DALLAS," "DYNASTY," and most of the other similar-type dramas preceding it. The pilot episode is actually the weakest of the series, but it gets increasingly better with each new show and ultimately leaves the viewer eagerly awaiting the 2nd season, about to debut shortly on tv.
BUENA VISTA has provided the correct 1.78:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. Colors are rich and detail is impressive. The show has a great production design, and it shines perfectly with this slick transfer. Blacks are deep, providing great contrast in darker scenes.
BUENA VISTA has provided a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. Not an aggressive mix, ambient effects are offered during key moments, but surrounds are used mostly to enhance the score. The front speakers offer consistently decent separation effects.
Three commentaries(unremarkable)are offered, along with featurettes, deleted scenes and bloopers.
