    The essential concerns of "The Scheme" actually fit into our current situation. That it does so in an entertaining manner — there are a number of laugh aloud moments here — is partly thanks to director Pat Kondelis, but the real reason this documentary works is because of a charismatic basketball wizard from Saginaw named Christian Dawkins.

    If you're missing the NCAA tournament, HBO's The Scheme will make you less wistful -- or at least, provide a reminder of big-money college basketball's grimy underbelly, exploring a corruption scandal that makes the NCAA look bad, and actually makes the FBI look worse.

    The result is a straightforward, few-frills retelling of the web of conversations that ensnared Dawkins and led to the charging of a number of his regular collaborators from inside college teams and apparel companies alike.
