Product Description

All six episodes from the fifth 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). Episodes comprise: 'Return of the Prodigal', 'New Recruits', 'Lest Ye Be Judged', 'Diamond Seeker', 'Politics' and 'The Road Less Travelled'.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the BBC’s most enduring and rightly-popular drama series, it’s to the credit of the writing team of Hustle that they continue to generate so many intriguing set-ups for its team of confidence tricksters to tackle. But with only one episode slightly below form in an-otherwise excellent series, the show remains one of the best contemporary dramas that the BBC produce.

The core set-up of Hustle is the same as before. There’s a gang of con artists, who continually get tempted by new scams and tricks, and are willing to travel the world to tackle them. Led by the likes of Adrian Lester (who returns after missing series four), Robert Glenister, the wonderful Robert Vaughn and new addition Kelly Adams, the Hustle crew also attract some welcome guest stars this time round. Bill Bailey, Tim McInnerny and Patrick Bergin are among the familiar faces that pop up.

The real stars of Hustle, though, are the tightly-plotted scams themselves, and there are some corkers in series five. We get, for instance, some malarkey with an MP, a bullion heist, a spider’s web and the weaker entry, involving a diamond necklace. For the bulk of the series, though, it’s great fun waiting for the rug to be pulled, and the run ends on a terrific high to lead us neatly towards the already-commissioned sixth season. Given the standards that Hustle predominantly maintains for series five, of which all six episodes are on this disc, that’s a very good thing. --Jon Foster

If you have liked the Hustle series as much as I have then you will not be disappointed with this latest offering from the BBC.

Two new changes to the line up. Sadly, out go Jaime Murray and Mark Warren to be replaced by two new cast members which in no way diminishes the quality and output of this latest series. Also delighted to see Adrian Lester back in the lead role who in my opinion is a major part of the success of Hustle, along with great supporting roles by Robert Vaughn as Albert Stroller - the grand daddy of all conmen and Robert Glennister as Ash "three-socks" Morgan their ever resourceful fixer.

Viewers might rightly ask if the series is getting stale and tired? Not at all! The ingredients that have made Hustle successful in the past are still there with another series of slickly presented, great story lines, always with a twist in the tale, and a cast who performs well together to deliver another memorable series of great TV viewing!

An excellent comeback for BBC's Hustle. Despite major cast changes this series still delivers clever, slick and enjoyable episodes. The series opens with a great twist which smoothly introduces the two new characters who we see progress as grifters throughout the rest of the series. The return of Mickey (Adrian Lester) is brilliant despite the departure of Danny (Marc Warren) and Stacie (Jaime Murray). Hustle continues to impress as the greatest drama on the BBC.

Series 1 and 2 were good, series 3 was the same which made me wonder whether they were taking the series forward at all. Adrian Lester left series 4, which, sadly, made that series the worst of the lot. His character makes the show, more than anything else.
The new characters are introduced well to the series. Albert starts the series in prison, still doing his thing whilst inside. Ash and Mickey start the series off as a pair, employing the help of Eddie who had to close his bar and become a waiter. Emma (Kelly Adams) is a great character and actress, she plays her part really well. Sean is where the bad reviews start to set in for this series, some people don't think the actor playing him is up to it, some people think the writing for the character is not up to it. My opinion is that he brings change to the show. Danny Blue was a funny character but a bit of change is what is needed. His character is well written and in the beginning it makes you wonder whether he will mess up the con due to his inexpertise, but later on he makes his mark, especially in the following series.

Some people will miss Marc Warren playing Danny Blue, but I believe that his replacement brings new life to the show which was much needed. Jaime Murray will not be missed, I think her replacement brings a lot more personality and sexiness to the show.

Im a huge fan of Hustle and was so glad that Adrian Lester came back to play Micky Stone, unfortunatley Danny and Stacey are missing but the new brother and sister duo are wonderfull and i didn't think the team had lost it's sparkle. These episodes are a lot more like the first series with more action and suspense. I also really enjoyed the behind the scenes bits and can not wait for series 6 to come out on dvd. A must have for Hustle fans

I, like many, get very nervous when there are big cast changes in a show I like. The news that Marc Warren, Jamie Murray and Ashley Walters would not be returning made me a little nervous. However, the opening of the first episode with Mickey returning to London and immediately conning a posh twit eating his lunch completely won me over. Kelly Adams and Matt Di Angelo, as the new members of the crew, fit in immediately and bring a new dynamic to the team, being brother and sister. Every episode of this series is great but the one that really stood out was the episode where the team set out to try and steal a painting protected by an un-hackable security system. The conclusion of the con was just inspired!!!

The fact is, Adrian Lester and his character are essential to the Hustle formula-the whole reason series four didn't work as well as the other series' was pure and simply because, without Adrian and Mickey, the series didn't have enough sparkle and class. With Adrian back on board this series, Hustle is brilliant again.

I love this show! It is smart and funny (I love when they look right at the camera) and it makes you really root for a group of Robin Hood-type con artists. Unfortunately (for me) they stopped showing this series in the US. I am able to stream it from a few websites but I really want to purchase and own the entire series. They only sell Seasons 1-4 in the US (which I have already purchased from Amazon) but Seasons 5 and on are only produced in the European format which won't work on an American DVD player. :( I'm hoping this changes sometime in the future; I can't give up on such a great series. Emma and Sean make great additions to the cast and the bigger Eddie's role gets, the more humorous the show becomes. I hope this show continues for a good long run! (And I also hope they bring it back to the US! Pleeeeease???)

Did anyone else receive DVD of Season 5 with video and audio not in sync? The first five minutes or so into each episode has this most disconcerting problem which then disappears ... until the next episode.

That aside, Season 5 features more brilliant plots, scams, and acting. It's so very good to have our leader back again. I missed him so much in Season 4. And Robert Glenister, well, he's totally amazing. Not as much Robert Vaughn as I'd like, but even a little of him is way better than nothing.

The two new characters are excellent but not quite up to Jaime Murray and the amazing Mark Warren. I think they'll get there, but they're not there yet.

It's the writing that raises this superb series above the rest.
