In this clever and thrilling new TV series, charming con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) escapes from a maximum security prison, only to be recaptured by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay).With few options, Caffrey agrees to help the bureau bring down other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom. But before long, Caffrey finds himself playing a game of cat and mouse with those who want him back in prison – or dead. Co-starring Tiffani Thiessen (Beverly Hills, 90210),White Collar is sewn with surprising twists, engaging characters and riveting excitement.

This is a great story about a charming, sophisticated, cultured con man who makes a deal with the FBI to be their "consultant" in exchange for finishing his prison time in the outside world within a two-mile restricted radius on an anklet in Manhattan. Neal Caffrey is absolutely lovable and enigmatic. We're never quite sure throughout the series whether he is going straight or if he just can't resist his old ways of art forgery and theft. He's a great character and I love the way Bomer plays Neal. Neal's sidekick, Mozzie (Willie Garson) is extremely clever and endearing and his FBI supervisor Peter (Tim DeKay) is cute and funny. I found a lot of humor and intrigue in most of the episodes, but after a while some of them seemed repetitive. Still, I could watch them over and over again because I have such a girl crush on MB. It also bothers me that reporters keep asking him if it's hard to be an openly gay man playing a straight role. Please, *everybody* on the screen is playing a role. Nobody, or very few actors, are dying to jump their colleagues. It's an act. That's why they get paid the big bucks, to memorize and rehearse and play a part so effectively that we believe that they are someone else.
But this one is different.
It does have the occasional killing, but they are few and always justifiable by the plot, and happen to eliminate characters that one doesn't like very much anyway. On the other hand, the two male leads are exceptional, and the cast that support them are also near perfection. One can believe in them all, and their quirks are fascinating in good ways.
For once we have a show where the heroes make mistakes but still most often manage to solve their cases. And with a good deal of humour involved, too. Also, I love the idea of the ex-con-now-FBI
assistant with a wardrobe, part up to date and part from earlier times - men should go back to wearing hats!
A good series that starts well and improves with each season. And watch for the references to
art, artists, books, old films - these writers do not have their heads in the sand. Buy, and enjoy.
It might sound 'shallow' but I think Matt Bomer is beautiful and that makes White Collar even more watchable!! He is very easy on the eyes!!
I'm addicted. Oh and I got my sister and best friend addicted. And yes I bought all three seasons and can't wait to watch season four when it comes out.

Cold Steel on the Rocks
We Are Cold Steel
Had never heard of this series but was buying something else when the Amazon flyer - 'People who bought this also looked at these .....'. appeared. The review ratings were excellent and so thought we should give Series 1 a try. So glad we did. This is our 'nightcap' treat and we watch it in bed (it's the only room with a DVD Player!). Only thing is that bedtime is getting earlier so that we have time to watch two episodes and so in a short time we're way into Series 2 now!!
No swearing, no violence (seen) and would be completely acceptable for family viewing with over 12's (to understand the story lines). There's great charisma between the two main characters - and ditto with the two other back up main characters when they are on screen with them. Back ups from the two FBI young Agents and the female con artists are also perfect.
Always funny as well as dramatic and New York looks great - a change from the seedier sides as in L&O etc.
With very good actors (special mention to Bomer and DeKay), intelligent characters (wonderful Tiffani Thiessen as Elizabeth Burke, Peter's smart and loving wife) and spectacular New York scenery, this show is a delight to watch!
Matthew Bomer and Tim DeKay clearly relish their roles as trickster Neal Caffrey and Agent Peter Burke - good interplay, neither fully trusting the other. Also assets are Tiffani Thiessen as Peter's supportive wife Elizabeth and Willie Gasson as the hilariously devious and ever-resourceful Mozzie.
14 cases full of twists and turns, with an underlying more serious storyline as Neal strives to track down his wife Kate. Is she being operated by sinister forces with their own agenda? Can there be a traitor high in the FBI?
Bonuses include commentaries, behind the scenes features and a gag reel. Much attention was given to the wardrobe. (Opinions may differ about that hat!)
Ideal viewing for those wishing simply to sit back and relax. The very end, though, may shock - appetite certainly whetted for Season 2.
