    The new show from "Sex and the City" producer Darren Star, is a strained attempt to build another hit about four peacocky New York women who sip martinis and use the word "penis" as often as possible.
  2. Ignoring all that, shallow Mafia entertains in key moments.

    Strictly viewed on its merits, though, Cashmere Mafia suffers from a too-familiar feel.
  4. Cashmere Mafia, on the other hand, proceeds as if it were written by someone very far away imagining a cold, hard city in which a woman can get a schmaltzy marriage proposal on a Monday and then be dumped five days later because she beats her fiancé out for a job.
  5. Sadly, though, the cliches rack up even faster than the wardrobe changes.
  6. 40
    A ho-hum knockoff of "Sex and the City."

    It's a fantastic show, one of the best from ABC, and i did not AT ALL expected the cancellation, because "Mafia" got 10 million views It's a fantastic show, one of the best from ABC, and i did not AT ALL expected the cancellation, because "Mafia" got 10 million views ONLY in the first episode, and that is more views than some other show got in A YEAR! ABC, is out of they're minds, by no bringing the show back. Full Review »

    Cashmere Mafia is a fantastic show, and the fact that it wasn't picked up for a second season is absurd! And Lipstick Jungle got a Cashmere Mafia is a fantastic show, and the fact that it wasn't picked up for a second season is absurd! And Lipstick Jungle got a second season, is this a joke?! Cashmere Mafia was funny, sexy and amazing. So what if it's a spinnoff of Sex and the City?! Private Practice is a spinnof, 90210 is a spinnof, and they turned out fine! Its totally unfair not to give this talented cast, in this great tv show a chance! Full Review »

    This show is fun,exciting, and sexy. The women are high class business profesionals who beat out their husbands and other men to be the best This show is fun,exciting, and sexy. The women are high class business profesionals who beat out their husbands and other men to be the best and look the best. The show was the talk in class at school, proving it does apeal to a younger group of women. I hope this show returns! Full Review »
