Lucy Liu as “Mia Mason”

Lucy Liu as 'Mia Mason'Okay, so once upon a time some bright spark greenlit a thirteen-episode order for a dramedy series called Cashmere Mafia, “following the lives of four ambitious women, who have been best friends since their days at business school, as they try to balance their glamorous and demanding careers with their complex personal lives”. It starred Lucy Liu and it died on its arse after just seven episodes, apparently… ending its days in a bargain bin in my local supermarket. The most likely reason for its failure is that it was a hectically-paced hybrid of Desperate Housewives and Sex & The City, without any of the jokes. And that’s a damn shame, because the main cast are all very talented, and they look fabulous throughout… and Liu in particular deserves a decent regular gig, after being so consistently funny and engaging in everything from Ally McBeal to Kill Bill… and yes, even Charlie’s Angels. Barracuda! Sadly, she also starred in Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever, which is one of the worst reviewed films ever made, according to aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes! I’ve never seen it myself, but I refuse to believe that any flick featuring her freckles could be totally unwatchable.
