White Collar Pilot Episode Review
Summary (taken from http://www.tv.com)-
FBI Agent Peter Burke takes an unconventional route in tracking down a ruthless and devious outlaw named "Dutchman". In order to catch the counterfeiter, he employs the help of incarcerated con man, Neal Caffrey.
White Collar is the newest show on the USA network and it definitely seems to be a hit in my book. Yes, I know it's only had one episode, but the teamwork between Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey and Tim Dekay who plays Agent Peter Burke is great. They work well with each other, giving this show an instant likeability.
As you can see from the summary, this is a lot like a TV version of the film Catch Me if You Can, but more like the post version as Neal has already been captured and put in jail. Now what happens?
I like the mix of humor, mystery, romance, and friendship that seems to permeate all USA shows. I've heard someone say that it's not very realistic, but I think most shows are not that realistic. You have to suspend reality a little bit when you are dealing with entertainment. Just sit back, relax, and see if you can enjoy the show.
The second episode of White Collar will air tonight at 10/9c on USA Network right after Monk. If you missed the pilot episode, you can check it out here:
