Product Description

All six episodes from the fourth season of the BBC drama series following the fortunes of a gang of London-based expert con artists with a moral bent: Albert Stroller (Robert Vaughn), Stacie Monroe (Jaime Murray), Danny Blue (Marc Warren) and Ash Morgan (Robert Glenister). In this series, the team loses leader Mickey, to an Australian sabbatical, so Danny steps up to the plate. They need a new member and Danny would rather have a pretty woman instead of street kid Billy Bond (Ashley Walters). Can the crew convince him otherwise? There are, as usual, plenty of nasty people deserving of a fleecing from the gang. This time around the targets include a porn king, a ruthless nursing home owner, and a charity crook. The crew also travel to LA, to sell the Hollywood sign to a Texan, and Las Vegas, where a mob boss needs his comeuppance. Danger, however, is just around the corner... Episodes comprise: 'As One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest, One Flew in', 'Signing Up to Wealth', 'Getting Even', 'A Designer's Paradise', 'Conning the Artists' and 'Big Daddy Calling'.

Product Description

In Season Four, the team loses Mickey Bricks to an overseas sabbatical, so it's time for someone else to lead the gang. Danny steps up to the plate, but can the others convince him that the team needs another member-especially when it comes in the form of street kid Billy Bond? There are, as always, plenty of marks who are greedy, rude or simply nasty enough to be parted from their cash. Targets include a porn baron, a ruthless nursing home owner, and a charity crook - and that's just for starters. The crew also hit LA and Las Vegas, but when they're not on their home turf, will their audacious attempts catch up with them in the end?

4.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it 15 May 2008
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As series four opens the general feeling is that Adrian Lester took the magic with him when he left at the end of series three, but if you stick with it things do gradually start to improve and by the end you might just appreciate this fourth season as perhaps the most experimental and unique edition of `Hustle' yet...

Episode 1 (8/10) The Hustle team in Hollywood- how could it fail?! Well it starts off slow and the story never really takes advantage of the glamorous setting, but guest performer Robert Wagner is pure American charisma and even if the story falls short of Hustle at its best, there are some great character moments and funny situations to enjoy.

Episode 2 (7/10) takes us back to the gang's usual territory and introduces new gang member Billy Bond with another horse-racing-themed story that doesn't excite as much as the similarly themed `The Last Gamble' from series one, but is still pretty solid.

Episode 3 (7/10) is an episode that twists the plot in all the typically surprising ways, and which also develops the gang's new set-up, as the team adjusts to a new leader in Danny and new member Billy. The wine-scam is slow to involve, but has a nice twist in the tail.

Episode 4 (9/10) is a fantastic return to form, as Billy finally gets a chance to prove his worth. It's a wickedly funny and well-written story, as each of the crew take on an hilarious persona in the fickle world of fashion with an ultimately very satisfying conclusion. `Hustle' is back on track!

Episode 5 (8/10) sees the tables turned on the crew, as they find themselves on the wrong end of a sword, being forced to pay the ultimate price for their crimes. Very solid and inventive with some absorbing animation thrown in to boot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coming out from under 26 May 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This latest series of Hustle breaks the pattern established in the first three - but maybe that's no bad thing. The absence of Adrian Lester gives the series a different focus as the dominating character of Mickey is removed and the rest of the gang are given more space to show what they can do.

Danny, finally the leader, begins to grow up and understand that there's more to life than girls. Though maybe not much more! Stacie, Albert and Ash all move further into the spotlight and throughout the series Jamie Murray, Robert Vaughn and the incomparable Robert Glenister build on their own characters and play a range of fascinating "character in character" parts. New boy Billy, played by Asley Walters, is a rough diamond who takes his grifting seriously and wants to learn from Danny rather than challenge him, which gives the team a less confronational feel than the Mickey/Danny relationship did.

The two weakest scripts re-hash ideas from previous series, which is a shame; the second episode (which introduces Billy and feels a little as if the con is tacked on as an afterthought) is particularly guilty of this. The "dog in the bar" con reappears in the fourth episode, although it is far more integral to the plot than on its first appearance in Series 1.

Fortunately the other four episodes are as strong as anything in the first three series and occasionally even better.

Episode one hurtles along and has a classic Hustle twist ending. Robert Glenister in particular stands out as he works his way through the full spectrum of characters from grumpy American hire-car dealer to camp make-up artist.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not an essential watch 30 Jan 2011
By J. Crampton VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I am a huge Hustle fan. When I heard that Mickey wasn't in this series - and that Albert's role was shrinking - I had a bad feeling. The new member is more wooden than a rocking horse (fortunately he only lasted one series), and Danny Blue leading the team just doesn't fit. Of all the original members Danny was always the one who didn't gel with me, hard to explain really but he never felt "right". On the plus side the stories are up to the usual standard and Jaime Murray and Robert Glenister are great, but as a whole they don't quite even out the bad points. It was good that they got the whole thing back on track in series 5, and this has to be seen as what it is - a blip.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good-but not as good as previously 14 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved the first three series of Hustle and I was a bit apprehensive about watching this series because I knew Adrian Lester was not in it. To be honest, the series was still good-but not brilliant as it had been previously. The only two episodes which came close to the excellence of previous series were the first and last episodes, both set in the USA. These episodes were clever and, though I racked my brains to guess how the team would pull it off, I didn't manage to guess what was going on. The other episodes were ok but the loss of Adrian Lester really showed. Marc Warren as Danny Blue is a brilliant actor but his character just wasn't as classy or smart as Mickey had been. But, like I said, this series is still good and is still a must for any fan of the series.
