White Collar Wackiness
April 26, 2012

Molly with the letter WOn the menu for today’s Television Thursday for the letter W is the show White Collar.  It is one of those dramedies that USA does so well and lives up to their slogan of “Characters Welcome.” Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) is a con man/art thief/forger who is caught by FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) and agrees to use his expertise to catch other criminals in exchange for limited freedom.  It is mostly a light show with lots of fun moments, but it delves into some pretty angsty stuff on occasion, too, so it’s a good mix.

I could tell you about the slick plans Neal comes up with to help the team catch the criminal of the week.  I could tell you about the quirky and witty criminal sidekick Mozzie.  I could tell you about the refreshingly angst-free and supportive marriage Peter has with his wife (Tiffani Thiessen from Saved by the Bell, y’all!).  I could tell you about Jones and Diana, the other two members of the FBI team who always turn their small screen time into entertaining moments.  I could also tell you about the epic bromance between Neal and Peter – two men who genuinely respect and care for each other, but often find themselves on opposite sides of the line.  But I think I’ll let this do all the talking:

Seriously, I don’t think there’s a better looking man on television (although Jensen Ackles runs a close second).  He’s almost too beautiful to be believed.  I look into those blue eyes and I just… wait, I’m sorry, where was I?  Oh, and he’s really a fantastic actor, too.  Matt and Tim both give their characters a lot more depth than the writing warrants.  The show has taken some missteps this past season, but these two guys always keep me watching.  Especially, Matt.  I mean, look at that face – how can you not watch his show?

Do you watch White Collar?  Would you want to be part of one of Neal’s cons?  How Wonderful is Molly with her W?
