    This is the sort of classy entertainment we used to find on A&E before that channel got bit by the reality bug.

    Has the sharpness of the recent remakes of "Italian Job" and "Ocean's Eleven."

    It's a fluffy hour of flimflam, spun with silk and told with a wink.

    It's all delightfully phony, but will win your faith on charm and panache.
  6. This is a show that has to be watched with full attention since it unfolds so quickly through endless twists and turns.
  7. Its hipster appeal feels a bit too calculated for my tastes, even though the cast, headed be Robert Vaughn, is undeniably appealing.

    Fun capers, fun cons. Watch for the shows with Adrian Lester. The 4th season does miss him.

    Found it by accident. Fell in love within five minutes! Can't get enough of the humor, acting, plot, and just great fun of this show. Reminds me of the days when tv really was entertainment! Expand

    I too stumbled upon the show while surfing. The cartoonish but thought-provoking opening, along with the catchy theme music hooked me in a second. I haven't been sorry yet. For all of the good reasons stated by others who gave it a 10, publicity might kill it. It's not your average mindless junk. A smaller audience makes me feel better. Expand

    This wasn't a bad episode but there were far better ones in the first 3 series. The show certainly misses Adrian Lester and I hope he comes back in the future. Collapse
