Though it's not especially good as a piece of formal filmmaking... McMillion$ tells a quirky and frequently hilarious tale filled with enough twists and turns that you'll swear it came from the keyboard of a Carl Hiaasen or Elmore Leonard.

Indeed, the film leans hard on artless devices, including a predilection for re-enactment that feels like something out of "America's Most Wanted."

McMillions has an immediate advantage in that the real people involved in the story are larger-than-life characters.

McMillion$ is filled with characters with a capital C, the kind who can recall specific decisions and moments with brutally funny frankness.

As the series goes on, it changes shape, which is one of the reasons I wish the whole thing had been available to preview. I'm curious about the ultimate structure of these six episodes, but the first three had my full attention.

It is the characters who carry the series, which is remarkably unstylish in execution and rushes through parts of the investigation where you might have preferred it to linger.
