White Collar: Season 4 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Matthew Bomer
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tv, 15 July 2014
I discovered White Collar several months ago on Netflix and finished the first three seasons in quick succession. I was eagerly awaiting the release of season 4 and 5 on either Netflix or iTunes, and last month the latter delivered.

As I watched both seasons back to back this review is for season 4 and 5 together. Both were fantastic seasons (as the previous three also were), with Matt Bomer and Tim Dekay delivering as always playing the parts of Neal Caffrey (convicted con-man turned CI) and Peter Burke (FBI agent responsible for catching Neal and now his handler) respectively.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 19 Dec 2013
This is the first Superman film I have ever watched and it was awful. Not even the beautiful Henry Cavill could make up for how boring this is. After how fantastic the recent Batman films, and Marvel Superhero films have been this just lacks the energy, passion, excitement, basically every positive adjective that could be used to describe those films is missing here. I would have turned off after the first 20 minutes if I wasn't watching this with company. It doesn't improve.
