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. Really my only complaint is the seasons are TOO SHORT! (Well, and a wolf would be nice, too...) But that can be forgiven, as USA budgets are probably not in line with some other networks out there. Though, if advertisers are paying attention, they soon should be.
Keep it up USA! You are the bright spot on my TV!
If you like "Hustle" or "Burn Notice" or "Leverage" I imagine you'd enjoy "White Collar". I'm just glad to have one more television series -- in a dwindling pool -- that isn't about murder, serial killers, twisted anti-heroes, lawyers, doctors, or failed marriages. Hooray for "White Collar"!
