STYLISH & FUN
on 22 January 2012
Yes, more than a hint here of "Catch Me If You Can" - a charismatic con-artist given the choice of another long spell in prison or helping the FBI outwit similarly ingenious lawbreakers.
Matthew Bomer and Tim DeKay clearly relish their roles as trickster Neal Caffrey and Agent Peter Burke - good interplay, neither fully trusting the other. Also assets are Tiffani Thiessen as Peter's supportive wife Elizabeth and Willie Gasson as the hilariously devious and ever-resourceful Mozzie.
14 cases full of twists and turns, with an underlying more serious storyline as Neal strives to track down his wife Kate. Is she being operated by sinister forces with their own agenda? Can there be a traitor high in the FBI?
Bonuses include commentaries, behind the scenes features and a gag reel. Much attention was given to the wardrobe. (Opinions may differ about that hat!)
Ideal viewing for those wishing simply to sit back and relax. The very end, though, may shock - appetite certainly whetted for Season 2.
