  • This smart slickly done show is the best

    9.0
    I was a fan of the American show "Leverage" first but thanks to AXSTV for putting on reruns of "Hustle" here in the States, it is obvious that it was the model for "Leverage" (although it is a bit more physical in nature in their cons using ropes and what not). And they have the token American (Robert Vaughn) in there. I think Adrian Lester is a brilliant actor and Hollywood should give him a shot, if he wants it.moreless
  • Hustle - The 'Oceans' of TV.

    8.0
    Hustle is my first British TV show. Before watching this show, I was told that British Television was full of boring stereotypes. But, Hustle really stood out for me as it was witty, entertaining, slick and stunningly stylish. The show is about a group of diversely skilled con artists who perform a series of scams and heists which are elaborate and challenging. It first looked like an Oceans rip-off but came into its own as the pilot progressed.



    Adrian Lester plays the clever, charming con man 'Mickey Stone' who has a perfect record in conning the rich. He is the leader of these 'pros of con' and completely outclasses rest of the cast on screen except Danny Blue (Marc Warren), a young talented short con expert who tries to join Mickey's team. Marc Warren certainly adds a touch of class and elegance to the show by his super comic skills and sarcastic nature.



    Another unique quality of this show is the 'freeze frame' shot along with 'thought tracking' in which time stops so that the characters can explain the minute details of the sting. The technicians crew have to be credited for this amazing camera-work. The writers also have done a great job by adding plenty of twists and turns in the plot, thus, making it worth watching.



    I have only watched the pilot till now and for that I would give it 8/10 but the show is bound to get better with time.moreless
  • Hustle is a show that keeps you guessing

    9.5
    You end up trying to figure out how they manage to get themselves out of whatever situation they're in or how they are going to con someone, when you find out how the hustle gang has managed it you realise how clever the show can be! This show has a good balance between the hustle gangs personal life and between their work. Sometimes you might be able to guess how but almost always you won't guess it all. Some parts in the show seem pointless but when it all comes together it makes you think you definitely wouldn't be able to become a grifter.moreless
  • This is one of my favourite shows, but this 2nd episode failed to live up to the famous recipe. The fellowship is broken.

    3.5
    I was excited as hell to get into the series. I liked the first episode, which wasnt the best but was fairly imaginative. This episode however was fully of uncomfortably long irrelevant conversations, dry and mundane delivery, camera shots trying to fill in the gaps and more character concentration than plot. Ok, so there are two new players, but the shows about cons, so lets have more of the cons. Who is this Matt Di Angelo anyway? He is dry and boring as hell. Danny was irritating, but funny on occasions and had some character. Matt is a plank of wood so far.



    I just hope this was a one off, and theres much more pace and action next episode.moreless
  • Roll on season 6. It can't be wors then season 5.

    9.9
    I love this show. Or maybe i should say loved. Season 1-3 were brilliant i watched every episode, then went out and brought the box sets. Season 4, Was good but i missed the interactions between danny and micky, I watched them all but didn't buy the box set. Then came season 5, I get micky back but loose danny and stacey, to be replaced by a new yummy male an a cute female, whos characters instantly anoy me. However i give the show a chance, and am so disapionted i only watch the first three episodes. Still hopefully the new season will have improved.moreless
