Show Summary

Professional thief, Mickey O’Neil decides to create an expert team of career criminals to attempt one of the biggest heists in history. Their goal is to rob three of the most renowned jewelry stores on Beverly Hills’ famed Rodeo Drive during Academy Awards week, at the same time. In the meantime, Amy Sykes, who is the lead detective for LAPD’s Robbery/Homicide division, leads the task force that has to investigate a series of thefts pulled off by this new crew. Under incredible pressure from her superiors, she has to figure out not only who is behind the crimes but also what their motives are and what big job this could all be leading up to. Unfortunately, for Sykes and her bosses, she ends up falling for mastermind O'Neil.

  • this was a a great show that didn't stop giving us interesting and humorous dialogue

    i can not say anything bad about this show except that it ended way too prematurely. it did not give us the end and that is what really ticks me off about its cancellation. if only we knew how the job went, who lived and didn't. I think this show was extremely witty and intelligent despite the fact that the characters themselves neither pretended or meant to be. Bring it back and I will definitely start watching. {starting chant} bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back! bring it back!moreless
  • This show reminds of a few gangster movies that took place just 8 years ago.Well anyway this show was a very fun show to watch but why did they have to cancel it?.I just wish NBC would bring this show back.This show had a good storyboard, okay background.moreless

    This show had good characters but why did they choose Beverly Hills? how about LA would have been a more fun background than it is now. I love all the action when they rig up a plan to rob a store. I liked the jewelry store robbery the best. This is the best show to come out in 2005 I will give the show credit for that.
  • This was an incredible show. It had flare, exictement, and was always cunningly fresh. Like said before, it was the schedule that crushed this show. Leave it to NBC to put it up against Lost and American Idol..moreless

    Heist is among my favorite shows ever. It is exciting, fresh and fun. It has lots of comedy and action as well, which makes this show complete. Contrary to what NBC appears to think, poor ratings do not indicate a poor show. It indicates a combination of a poor show and a good time slot. However, Heist was an excellent show with a horrible time slot. Please, NBC, Bring Heist back. You are deserting millions of fans with barely no word. Heist is a show with an excellent plot, cunning schemes, unique characters and unbeatable comedy. NBC, Please bring Heist Back!moreless
  • A message to the network! This could have become one of the greats!

    9.1
    This show should never ever been cancelled. Bad scheduling was the reason for people not watching it.



    The people I have shown this series to and told to watch were absolutely shocked when I told them it was cancelled.



    It was funny, interesting and a great idea.



    If you had any common sense then bring it back and give it a good scheduling and you'll see people in their millions watching it.





    It had everything you need to make a great show: Great characters, interesting plot and jokes gallore!



    The executives who run thee networks have no idea when it comes to good programming.



    For the love of god bring it back!!!

  • Why do they cancel good shows?

    8.7
    I started watching Heist when it began and found it really interesting; there was the overall plot of the one big heist that the group wanted to pull, then the smaller crimes that they had to commit every week in order to be able to pull the big job. If nothing else, it was a good education in how to rob a jewellry store!



    But that's not all that it was; it was funny, and action-packed. The scripts were good and well acted, and it certainly had enough intrigue and plot twists to hold my interest and bring me back every week. Unfortunately, the executives in tv-land didn't seem to think so and cancelled it after six or so episodes. So we were left hanging, wondering what happened. I hate it when they do things like that.



    It's sad when good shows get cancelled, yet stupid reality shows (not naming any names!) continue to get renewed. We need more shows like Heist... oh, and I guess the tv executives agree, because for the fall 2006 season, there seem to be quite a few shows like Heist. I just don't get it, really.moreless
