  • A Big Disapointment....

    Don't read this review. It has spoilers in it. I thought this show would be really good. But the pilot episode is dumb. But it turns out in this episode that Zac Efron plays a Hostage Robber. He wasn't in the episode very long. It happened way too fast. He delivers pizza to this house, they grab him, take his shirt off, put a bomb on his chest, and he goes in this bank and they see the bomb and give him this bag, and then these people stop him and tell him to drop the bag, and then he explodes. Now I know that I don't like shows where people explode in them. The bank people were much smarter than those other people. After seeing this, It isn't worth it to even watch the rest of this episode, or any others, and I'm glad it gets cancelled.moreless
  • While the premier of Heist may not be the most amazing thing on TV, it is extremely entertaining.

    Heist is a show all about fun and enjoyment. It may not have any strong suit to put up front on the table, but when everything falls into place, the show is pure entertainment. NBC needed something different and fast paced for their line-up and this is the perfect fit.
  • Everything from the cast to the scenery to the music reminded me of Ocean's Eleven...that can be either a good thing or a bad thing.

    Good pilot episode, very entertaining, great acting...these things in the first episode are what's needed and Heist succeeded so for a view like me, I'll continue to watch. I like the Chemistry between Billy and Tyrese and I'm sure they'll develop into great partners...even if they push each others buttons with their senses of humor.
  • Excellent..

    Excellent.. I thought that the righting was clever.. the beginning was perfect, "We have officially cried Wolf." It gets right to the point.. and the characters are just soooo funny! They are good in my book! The show reminds me of Oceans 11 & 12! The things that the characters do in the show.. is so real that it is Funny! The police in the show.. are HILARIOUS together!
  • I'm still on the fence with the show.

    I only watched this show becuase it was the only thing on, but now I'm kind of getting into it. It is kind of like Prison Break in that I didn't expect it to go anywhere, after the escape and the man hunt where can it go. that is my same thinking here. after the heist what else? Still it has got a few one liners for a quick laugh. I'll watch a few more episodes before deciding.moreless
