Lampooning the top-rated (at the time) TV show Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, this "ghettoized" parody reinvents the British-born host Robin Leach as the vulgar Robin Lench, who narrates a show called Lifestyles of the Poor and Unfortunate in a faux British accent. You can pretty much guess the angle here, everything is the flipside of lavish living: instead of focusing on, say, luxury cars, here it's about taking the RTD bus, or the Rough Tough & Dangerous. The trademark closing catchphrase from Leach, "champagne wishes and caviar dreams," becomes "40 ounce drinks and watered down wishes." That's the Lench way.
