5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 23 Jan 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hustle : Complete BBC Series 1 [2004] [DVD] (DVD)
Preceding the soon to be aired second series, the synopsis hardly does this one justice. This DVD is of the first stunning series of 'Hustle' from the BBC. Once again the BBC shows it can screen some pretty impressive stuff, with the twists and turns, the focus on detail and plot development. The BBC creates a group of characters, that by today's standards are some of the most hated people in society, and shows a 'human' side, unlike anything ever shown before, using ideas like, 'Never Cheat an Honest Man'.
The characters are well chosen, and the on-screen chemistry is over-flowing. Adrian Lester plays Michael Stones, GBH convicted leader of the group of long and short con-artists. Marc Warren (a.k.a Pvt. Blithe - 'Band of Brothers') once again, lives up to his standard, and plays convincingly, the over-eager, full-of-himself Danny Blue. Each wonderfully crafted episode will keep you guessing right up until the end. A top quality series. One thing you wont be is conned if you buy this, it will remain your most prized investment for many a year.
