Critic Reviews for White Collar Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

The episode never deviates from what makes White Collar so appealing -- pure, unadulterated fun.

Sep 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Collar has loosened up! This crime drama's sometimes-bland cast of characters returns with an improved, heartier camaraderie.

Sep 14, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I'm glad the show's writers restrained themselves.

I'd wager it was one of the most fun episodes of TV I've seen this summer.

Apr 7, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

What White Collar did best, though, was to reestablish the easygoing rhythms and longish, thoughtful-ish colloquies between Bomer's Neal Caffrey and DeKay's Peter Burke.

Jul 13, 2010 | Full Review…

It was great that we found out Neal's true intentions.

Apr 7, 2016 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Like the best season finales, White Collar... not only serves up satisfying resolution, it plants a provocative seed for its next run of episodes.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

I really think this was a great episode, full of some good banter with Neal and Peter, hilarious stuff with Diana and Mozzie, an exciting conclusion to the case and a very mysterious ending.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Though it would be nice if the storyline itself were less contrived, the characters make up for any other shortcomings White Collar has.

Mar 15, 2017 | Full Review…

While the second season premiere of White Collar lacks the story progression that fans were hoping for, it's still able to deliver a solid hour of entertaining television.

Dec 13, 2016 | Full Review…

The leads are fun, and if they can get guest stars the caliber of Matheson every week, I can learn to ignore the arc stuff the same way I do for most USA shows.

Apr 7, 2016 | Full Review…

The bro-mance between the art thief and his by-the-book FBI handler is still the best reason to watch this show.
