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.

December 21, 2016 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

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.
