Quite simply, there is no other show out right now that can hold a torch to Hustle. It is English TV at its very best. Hustle shows the slick, smart, and cool side to London and a group of con artists, who always seem to come up on top and know every trick in the book.
But it doesn't take itself too seriously and that is part of its charm.
In the third season it surprised critics by being every bit as good as its preceeding seasons. They said it would run out of ideas but that is certainly not the case.
My only complaint would be that the show has lost some of its cool since the gang left the London Park Hotel and moved into a penthouse apartment. There was something about the shiny, full-of-innocent-marks hotel that made me want to keep watching.
I'd recommend it to anyone.
