Each actor gave such outstanding performances.

In addition, since most of us viewers expect dramatic endings, the lack of such left me a bit deflated.

I'm a big fan of British TV but can be selective in the shows I watch.

This four part British series about a heist gone wrong starts out so strong, it's difficult to maintain the incredible initial intensity throughout. But anyone who likes contemporary crime drama should definitely check out "Inside Men." This series has a refreshingly hard edge. Its central protagonists are not unscrupulous villains, but ordinary men looking for a shortcut to a better life. As two lower level employees (Warren Brown and Ashley Walters) at a money counting house look to skim from the take, they don't realize that this risky caper is going to open the door to something unfathomable. When discovered by their supervisor (Steven Mackintosh), his response is not what they would have predicted. Soon these three "inside men" are plotting a scheme that will net them millions! And as you might expect, it's not easy to plan the perfect crime.

The narrative is divided into two timelines that alternate back and forth within a given episode. The series starts in the midst of the big heist, and the other plot line backtracks to many months before the event. Not only, therefore, are we seeing the present-day heist spin out of control, we are seeing the tumultuous days leading up to the event. The actual action sequences are extremely well done and exciting, while the planning stage is also fraught with tension. All of the men have women and/or families that figure into the scenario in one way or another (kudos to Kierston Wareing, so good in The Take, for channeling her best Lady MacBeth as Brown's girlfriend). The beauty of this story is that you really never know where it is going. Having seen the heist in the opening episode, there are still plenty of surprises once the back story catches up and gives us a fresh perspective on what's going on.

I was very excited to watch this series from the BBC. With actors like Warren Brown and Steven Mackintosh, it promised to be quite good!

I like the creative ways that the series goes back and forth between present and past, but at times it gets a bit confusing to maintain the correct order of events. What makes this series different from other heist movies is the look into the main characters' personal lives, and what influences their choices.

While I won't give anything away as to whether the heist is or isn't successful, the ending falls flat, with a few loose ends not tidied up. In addition, since most of us viewers expect dramatic endings, the lack of such left me a bit deflated. When one invests that much time in watching a series to see it end on such a bland note is disappointing.

Not my favorite BBC series, but I'd still recommend it. British TV manages to be so much more original and clever when it comes to scripts than American TV.
