  • The Malloys seem to manage their cons the way most of us manage our money. The appear to be living pay check to pay check. Getting deeper and deeper into debt. But they found a way to get out of debt. Oh yeah, they'll get out of debt!

    I can only hope that it took seven episodes for the writers to establish enough background for them to let loose with more and more terrific stories as what we had with their 8th episode; "X spots the mark".

    Don't get me wrong, I was sold on the show, before this. I planned my Monday night around this event. I did not expect them to raise the bar.

    This has been my favorite episode so far. It reminded me of the movie "The Sting". We as an audience had been along for the ride, and understood the plan. But they left enough surprises in there, for us to appreciate the fine art of the con. I loved how everyone knew their part, and executed it perfectly. I can hardly wait to see what next week brings.
