5.0 out of 5 stars Loving this drama - need the DVD, March 12, 2010
This review is from: White Collar: Season 1 (DVD)
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. It's a drama with everything right, including that while it may insinuate a bit of morality that I don't think is adequate, it is, as others have said, a "clean" show. Clean and yet completely interesting. Ah...see...it CAN be done. White Collar does it so very well! All the other quality shows I have enjoyed seem to be failing to keep an audience and stay on, so I'm calling White Collar my new favorite and I do hope it sticks around for at least a couple years if not longer.
