Watched the pilot and first proper episode, not too bad, blondie is cute and Gina Bellman is generally reliable when one needs British and elegant.

Ocean's Eleven meets the A-Team.  Pilot wasn't bad.  I'll give it a few more episodes.

Yeah me too, still haven't seen an episode I've not liked.

I really liked the denouement in yesterday's episode, oh and the appearance by both Johnathan and Holland Manners :)

Yeah, it's a good little time waster.  The chick who plays Parker is super-cute, too.  (Even though she's married to Jason Lee, presumably a scientologist, and named her kid Pilot Inspektor)

I Tivo-ed it and watched the first couple of episodes and enjoyed it.

There was (maybe still is) a BBC show about a group of grifters that is almost the same as this.   Does anyone remember the name of it?

Thanks.

Ah, "Hustle", thank you.

I will have to see if BBC America is still showing that.

I didn't like the horse racing episode or the church episode. There's a very "Incredible Hulk" feel when they go to some really boring place for a job. Heck, Hulk was even on an airplane once. But I liked the airplane landing on the... uh, intracoastal highway?

I feel like becoming one of those people who writes angry "letters" to TV shows. (I don't know what a "letter" is. I heard it on a TV show.) They had the lead of the show DRINKING AND DRIVING. I don't care about the drinking. It's cheap and easy to add depth by making someone a drunk. But they wrote off him drunk driving like it was nothing. Plenty of people have lost someone to drunk drivers. It's not very sensitive. I can't believe they did that. He might as well wear fur and breathe smoke in baby's faces. If they want to make an afterschool special out of it, okay. But there were no consequences in that particular episode. The drunk thing is slowly going nowhere. It ALMOST feels like they're playing it for comedy, which is dangerous.

I'd rather watch the Tom Hanks drunk uncle episode of Family Ties.

Why do they keep doing that so early?
