Now that Michael Lorber bowed out for Season 2 of Million Dollar Listing NY, taking his great shoes and Nice Jewish Boy Next Door charm with him, we’re left with too much hustle and not enough humor as in, ‘they’re ain’t any’.
Now, all three of these guys are the guy your mother warned you about. Watching them slither through deals and life in $3,000 suits is fun, but I miss Michael. He’s funny, not tall, just Nebish-y enough and has brains and bucks, making him more the quintessential New York power dude than a David Beckham look-alike. (Think Mike Bloomberg). This season, the show is colder, the stakes higher and the listings more expensive –increasingly branding the city as a billionaire’s playground. I now prefer L. A.’s version and Grandma Flagg.
