Critics Say Cashmere Mafia Has Polyester QualityJessica G.1/04/08 12:30pmFiled to: critical masscarrie bradshawManolosSex And The CityCandace Bushnellcashmere mafiaDarren StarLucy Liu42EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe long-awaited and scandal generating Sex and the City knock-off Cashmere Mafia from SatC creator Darren Star will premiere this Sunday, and reviewers have already taken out a hit on it. Just like in Sex, Mafia centers around four women in the big city, but these women are more interested in boardrooms than bedrooms...or something. Lucy Liu plays the Carrie Bradshavian lead, Mia, who works in publishing but on the business side. The other three characters do other business-y type stuff but their descriptions bored me to tears, so I'll just mention that one of them is flirting with lesbianism. Anyhoo, the critical reception of Mafia has been uniformly terrible (reviewers have called the characters "parodies", "caricatures" and "stereotypes"), save for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, which calls the show "slick and exquisitely cast." (Maybe they've let all that Florida sun bleach their brains.) Check out the rest of the critical carnage after the jump.
