    Original in concept, intelligent in execution, it's a scruffily Steinbeckian chronicle of life at the social and economic margins.
  2. Easy Money (9 p.m. Sunday on the CW) is easily the most intriguing new show of the season, if only because it relies on neither the great wealth, modern science or female bonding for its narrative thrust.
  3. 80
    The creators of this comedically-flavored drama clearly know what they’re doing and this season, it’s certainly worth taking a gamble on Easy Money.
  4. 63
    There's no denying the timeliness of a show about strapped-for-cash customers and predatory lenders, but Money doesn't seem to know what or where it wants to be, landing in some netherworld between a broadcast comedy and an edgier cable drama.
  5. Easy Money has some promise. But it won't be an easy sell.
  6. This is the world of “Weeds” a few tax brackets lower, and the sense of emptiness is as aggressively conveyed.
  7. The Easy Money production values are low all-around but they wouldn't be as noticeable if the characters and tedious story sparked to life. They don't, and it doesn't.
