I like the show. I downloaded the first two seasons. (six episodes each) The casting is excellent and the tempo is nice. They make a little too much out of the "moral conmen," every week, a few innocents get hurt, but over all, the characters are likeable. I thought that the first season tried to build up the legend of "Mickey Briggs" too much, but they settled down about that and made it a better ensemble show in the second season. Sometimes they are a little cheap with the information, but we always know more than the "mark," so the show is interesting, but it's the casting and the style that I appreciate. They all are my favorite for different reasons, though, I could do with a little less with Danny Blue. All the casting is great, but really nailed the dame. They needed someone unbashedly gorgeous who could still handle the lines, and Jaime Murray is like a young Jacqueline Blisset. She could start a war on the strength of her pout.
It's a nice, light show. Remmington Steele v. The Sting, with a little bit of Mission Impossible.

curses to you, fondling! Now it is also stuck in MY head! (although, honestly, I thought of it as soon as I saw the thread title -- I even remember the steps to the dance! Does that mean we're showing our age?)
