White Collar

 (1,196)8.22010X-RayTV-PG
White Collar is about the unlikely partnership between a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay). When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail, Neal suggests an alternate plan: he'll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Federal Agents in catching other elusive criminals. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can't be found on the right side of the law.

I wish there were more shows like this today

It's a drama, has comedy, mystery, crime-solving, & even some action. The main characters are all very likeable and they have great chemistry together. It has a good storyline with plot twists, and with all that it makes for an intriguing series that easily keeps you hooked, wanting to watch more.

The two main characters, Peter & Neal, develop a close bond over the series while also having a natural sort of "uneasy/distrust" of each other that creeps up from time to time because of their chosen career paths & background (FBI agent, forger/conman). The story, friendships/relationships & (most) situations don't feel forced or too unrealistic. It's a refreshing, easy show to watch, and I wish there were more great well-written shows like this today. I'm glad I purchased the whole series on DVD so I can rewatch it over & over!

The best three seasons of television...
Verified purchase
Three seasons? The show ran for six, but I'm not making a mistake. The first three seasons of this creative television drama are some best cutting-edge episodes ever created. Then...crash and burn. Get Smart meets The Man From UNCLE and they threw a stupid party. A smiling femme fatale who is smarter than everyone; plots so improbable they should come with a cereal box and a magic decoder ring. I don't know what sort of meltdown created this rapid decent into the creative abyss, but it happened overnight. The eye candy is still nice, and if shallow speculation about how low Matt Bomer can wear a sheet before triggering an alarm from the decency police floats your boat, then drool away. As for me, I'll consider this a 3-season masterpiece and leave it at that.

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. 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!

No starch around this collar!

"White Collar" is a delightful television series. Matt Bomer is simply gorgeous -- one of those rare men who are actually physically beautiful -- a pleasure just to stare at; but the actors are all excellent, the stories are clever and inevitably entertaining, and the relationships are a pleasure to observe. I'm especially pleased that the series features a happily-married couple ("Suit" and "Mrs. Suit") who are genuine helpmates and fun to-boot. I also like the interaction between Neil and Mozzi and the growing trust and friendship between Neil and Peter.

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"!

Should Be Higher Profile Than It Is
Verified purchase
First of all, someone at USA Network, or whomever they farm out their DVD stuff to, should be given a big raise. Why? Because I had barely ever heard of White Collar before I saw the pilot episode on the Season Four DVD set of Burn Notice, another USA show. It was there, I had 45 minutes to kill, so I watched it. And ordered White Collar Season One on my next Amazon purchase. Genius, give people a taste of something, seemingly for free, and get them to spend some money later. Give that person/people a raise or a promotion. Or both.

White Collar is another of those charismatic cop shows that have started popping up since The Mentalist came out. I would imagine that White Collar was in development before that happened, but you can't say that Simon Baker and company didn't grease the skids. The premise is simple: Neil Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a forger, theif and all around 'white collar' crook offers to help his FBI catcher, Peter Burke (Tim DeKay). The deal is this: Caffrey helps Burke with his cases, Burke keeps him out of prison. But Caffrey has another agenda as well, his missing ex-girlfriend Kate (Alexandra Daddario), who may or may not be under the control of elements in the FBI. His search for her, abetted by his friend Mozz (Willie Garson), tends to complicate his professional relationship with Burke, though Burke's wife Eleanor (Tiffani Thiesson) is in Neil's corner, mostly.

Neil might just be the smartest TV cop there is, other than Simon Baker's Patrick Jane from The Mentalist (technically they're both consultants), and that's part compliment part problem, as both characters are geniuses whose personal obsessions are often their undoings. But they're right a bit too often and easily for realism's sake. Except that you like both of them so much that ultimately you don't really care. That's what Matt Bomer brings to the role, he's convincing as a crook with a heart of gold, and is so smooth that it makes me wonder why it took him so long to break out as an actor. He's got a ton of talent, this won't be his last star vehicle. Tim DeKay's Peter Burke tries to be the by the book FBI agent, but Neil is not the best influence on him, though they get the job done. As the season (14 episodes) goes on, he looks the other way more and more often, showing a nice gray area as the two of them become friends and learn to trust each other, a bit. What I didn't like about him was his constant threatening to Neil to put him back in prison if Case X didn't get solved. Memo to the writers: No FBI agent/team solves every single case in a couple of days, or else. DeKay seemed to overact at times, but I wonder if it was just the contrast to Bomer's smoothness, I'm conflicted there. Thiessen plays the loving wife, and her byplay with Neil and Mozz is hilarious when it happens. Mozz is the loyal best friend and wingman for Neil, and Garson plays him humorously, but not slapsticky. He gets most of the best lines, but that's his job.

The episodes are part single stories, combined with the overall 'find out what happened to Kate' subplot that runs through each of them. The crimes are highbrow, given the title and theme of the show, and while murder is involved sometimes, it's not that kind of show. The season ended on......not a cliffhanger per se, but a 'What the......!??!' kind of moment that was not what I was expecting. That's a good thing by the way. Yeah, I'll be getting Season Two.

Interesting plot(s), good, sometimes really good, acting, and a fast moving pace. White Collar is a winner, and while I had a couple of quibbles, it doesn't take away from a 5 star rating. Maybe more networks should put pilots of their newer shows on DVD's for their hits. Worked with me, my hard earned dollars are on their way to them.

Five stars.

White Collar Crime

I really enjoyed the first season of White Collar. The cast was nearly perfect in the pilot, and the plot was riveting throughout the season. I enjoy the relationship of Peter Burke and Neil Caffrey and the supporting cast was usually great, too. I'm glad they brought back Diana in the finale as the replacement was pale in comparison in more ways than one. I enjoy seeing a happy marriage on TV. Please, keep that going and don't break them up as so many shoes do. Mozzie is a really interesting character, but I think that Agent Jones needs more air time as he is very appealing, too. I enjoyed this show so much that I immediately bought the second, third, and fourth seasons after I watched this one. The premise and plotting are that interesting and I fell in love with Dihann Carroll years ago, and it is good to see her back on television as the slightly roguish June.

This is such a great show it has action, comedy, drama, and suspense all intertwined in various plots. A great cast that all seem to worth extremely well together. Sure wish they would bring this back or have a reunion movie or something showing Neal in Paris and reconnecting with Peter and Mozzie.

Great show!! Love Matt Bomer
Verified purchase
This show is about Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a sexy con man, who strikes a deal with FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim Dekay), to spend the rest of his prison sentence working as a consultant to help the FBI catch white collar criminals. (Think Frank Abignail, Catch Me if You Can) The show is great because it intertwines Caffrey's work with the FBI into Caffrey's other mission, to find his ex girl friend, Kate.

My favorite thing about this show is it doesn't take itself too seriously, like other crime dramas. The relationship between Caffrey and Burke is great, they really bring you into their world.

The other great thing about this show is the way the two of them solve crimes. It's smart and innovative. Add a little Mozzie (think Monk) and Peter's Wife, Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiesen, the fantastic and still gorgeous Kelly Kapowski), and you have a great combination!

If you don't want to buy the DVD, you can watch it on Netflix, but pre-warned, you're going to be addicted.
