Looks like the USA Network has got another banging hit in its lineup. WHITE COLLAR, an easy-breezy crime drama, swipes heavily from the buddy cop genre, and that this beaten-to-death premise (which owes a lot to 48 HOURS) works for this series is purely because of the appeal of the two leads, and specifically Matt Bomer. This is not to dis his semi-rumpled co-star Tim DeKay, but clearly this show rises or collapses on how effectively Bomer brings the sexy. Tim Dekay - while also charming in a more low-key sort of way - works best as Bomer's exasperated foil.

Sophisticated con artist Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) - convicted of bond forgery but suspected of many other crimes - is hailed as "quite the Renaissance criminal." He has only three to four months left to serve in his prison sentence when Kate, the love of his life, breaks up with him and then amscrays for parts unknown. Demonstrating that a maximum-security prison isn't a deterrent if you're crazy in love, Caffrey breaks out of stir to try to find his girl. Except that he gets caught, and gets caught by the same dogged FBI guy who nabbed him the first time, Peter Burke (Tim DeKay).

Agent Burke toils away in the white collar crime division in the Big Apple and, before he got pulled away into again running down Caffrey, he was steadily getting baffled by a cunning master forger called the Dutchman. But the long-awaited break surfaces when Caffrey proposes a deal: Caffrey will help Burke catch the Dutchman if Caffrey is remanded to Burke's custody and be out and about in the real world. It's plain to both that the real reason for Caffrey's offer is so that Caffrey can keep looking for his lost love. Burke reluctantly takes the deal. Caffrey gets fitted for a GPS tracking anklet.

of Neal Caffrey and Peter Burke. As another reviewer said..."maybe there's someone on television currently more rakish and dashing than Neal Caffrey. But, for the life of me, I'm drawing a blank."

Well, I don't think there is, and this character has the perfect blend of boyish charm, intelligence and cleverness to go along with that mischievous twinkle in his eye. Matt Bomer inhabits his character with an ease and grace which belie his youth. Tim DeKay as the ever put-upon straight man, Peter Burke, is the G-Man who, despite his best efforts, can't quite keep it under wraps that he's got a heart...which would explain his gorgeous, intelligent and even more put-upon wife, Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen), whose contributions are always on point. And then there's the quirky man's quirky, Neal's behind-the-scenes guy, Moz, perfectly played by Willie Garson.

So, the only question becomes ... how did the USA Network round up so many clever and witty writers to completely dominate TV? They're churning them out over there as fast as Mardi Gras beads in China.

White Collar is a welcome addition to my other USA favorites, Burn Notice and In Plain Sight. With their winning combination of intelligent plots with fascinating detail (even to those who are afflicted with always-know-the-ending-itis), quirky characters with all-too-human faults, a large dash of humor, and exquisite casting, these are the best shows to come along in years. Who knew, years ago, when that defective detective with OC disorder premiered, and I thought, "Well, this is certainly different," that the USA network had revived and perfected the hour long Action-Dramedy? I haven't seen anything as compelling and entertaining as the USA line-up since Northern Exposure or Due South.

I finally caught this show late in the season and couldn't get enough; now I need to start at the beginning so I'm ready for the DVD set now. The reviews for White Collar are positive because they can't be anything but that. I loved Robert Wagner in It Takes a Thief, and I loved Hardcastle and McCormick. For me, White Collar combines the two with the "bad" suave, charming and intelligent thief being directly under a lawman's watchful eye. The premise for the show isn't new but the drama itself is very fresh. I call this my guilty pleasure because I honestly couldn't turn the channel when I laid eyes on Neal. I was wowed by Matt Bomer's look and Neal Caffrey's charm and wit. However, any drama with a great mix of characters pleases me immensely and White Collar certainly has a fantastic array of characters, starting with Neal and Peter (expertly acted by Tim DeKay) and moving right on down the line. The writing is usually nicely twisted with just the right turns -- though the season finale was not a surprise, it was, nonetheless, done quite dramatically. Admittedly, I don't always quite follow every case very well but I get it enough to stay interested (okay, I guess that's still because of those blue eyes and sophisticaed charm). I also must point out that the relationship of Peter and Elizabeth is extremely pleasing to me. Too often marriage is not portrayed well or intelligently in TV dramas and the way these two relate is as comfortable and right as a good, worn pair of jeans or favorite shoes. I also enjoy the relationship of Elizabeth to Neal. My interpretation of Peter's relationship to Neal is almost that of a big brother (at least, that's what's developing). Elizabeth might then be a big sister.Read more ›
