Compassion, not chaos, is the key to "McMillions" success. The mindful storytellers carefully shift tones, sucking viewers into an outlandish story before driving home its substantive impact.

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.

While McMillions is a surprisingly fun examination of the con and the con men, it's also a worthy portrayal of the toll that predatory offers take on those most vulnerable to their poisoned charms.
