Tv Season Info

The first season introduces slick con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), recently escaped from a maximum-security prison, and FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), the man who put Neal behind bars after a lengthy cat-and-mouse game. After being apprehended again, Neal suggests a partnership with Peter in which he'll help the agent solve white-collar crimes, an arrangement that keeps Neal out of jail and provides the premise for the series. Tiffani Thiessen and Willie Garson also star.

White Collar is actually one of the best new shows of the season. The tone is effortless and agile, as it toggles from comedy to intrigue and back.

I didn't leave the White Collar pilot with any great investment in the show, but with an amiable willingness to watch again.

In terms of the pilot episode and the potential this series has from the start, White Collar is exciting, intelligent, humorous and all around good TV.

If you like a good con artist yarn, enjoy the tone of USA Network's other original programs and can suspend your disbelief a little, you'll really enjoy White Collar.

Clever plot twists and a winning camaraderie among the characters.

Oct 23, 2009 | Full Review…

Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay's entertaining double act as the suave con-man and straight-laced Fed is the backbone to the show's success, but credit is also due to its stylish look. An enjoyable mash-up of Remington Steele and CSI.

So far so familiar. But buried in the premise is a crisp script and Dragnet-with-humor repartee between the two winning leads, backed up by an excellent support cast.

Dec 13, 2016 | Full Review…

The chemistry between Bomer and DeKay is strong, and playing Burke's dogged sense of fairness against Caffrey's "you take what you can get" attitude gives White Collar some amusing tension and just the barest hint of a theme.
