  • BEAUTIFUL CRIME

    White Collar's Season 4 Premiere: The Face and the Chase

    "Wanted" was a big deviation from formula that was as relaxed as it was high-stakes.

      Who cares if Cape Verde speaks Spanish or not. Yeah, it was a flaw but I'm not giving a bad review of the entire episode based on that. The writers took a chance having Neal run last season and there really isn't any way to bring him back that won't defy logic or reality. I don't want reality in my TV shows. I have a life for that. I love the way that Peter found Neal and intends to move heaven and earth to bring his friend home. Great season premiere for all the true fans of the how.moreless
    • FYI on Cape Verde

      9.5
      Cape Verde is a former Portuguese colony, and the dominant language is Portuguese. That is why it is Latino. They're not speaking Spanish. They're speaking. Portuguese.
    • Ignorant and/or incompetent producers

      1.0
      If you watch this episode you believe he is in a Caribbean island, while he's in an African archipelago (it is supposed to happen in Cape Verde). From the music to the people speaking spanish, to the "latino" looking extras, everything transports you to the wrong place. You want to understand how ridiculous this is? Picture a movie in Mexico, with characters speaking Italian (and looking Italian), with a Samba sound-track. Strangely, the only adequate scenario seems to be Maya's cafe.moreless
    • LOVED IT

      8.0
      I don't know why people are complaining. Why must you nit pick everything, it is supposed to be fiction, not real, TV can get away with a lot of things. This episode had my on the edge of my seat the entire time. I really can't wait to see what happens next week. I love all the characters on White Collar, especially Neal. Mozzie's nicknames for people are fun too, Suit and Super Suit. I will be glad when they get back to New York though because that it a character in the show all by it's self. I have been waiting for this to come back for so long...can't wait for the next episode!moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Goof: All the locals in Cape Verde speak Spanish, but Cape Verde was discovered by Portuguese navigators and was part of Portugal for hundreds of years, so the official language is Portuguese.

      • Mozzie's chosen alias in this episode is "Barry Soetoro," which is a play on Barack Obama. When Obama was a preteen and teen, he preferred the nickname of Barry (instead of his given name of Barack, which exposed him to bullying), and his stepfather, his mother's second husband, was named Lolo Soetoro. Hence, Barry Soetoro is a proxy name for Barack Obama, and a wink of an alias for Mozzie.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Mozzie: Neal, the Suit isn't wrong.
        Peter: Can't you just say I'm right?
        Mozzie: I'd rather not.

      • Maya: Has he done something?
        Peter: Not at all. I owe him an apology.
        Maya: It's a long way to come to say you're sorry.
        Peter: He's a good friend. He's worth it.

      • Jones: It's no good. The only storm activity at 4 pm in UTC +11 occured up near Vladivostok, Russia.
        Peter: Nah, Mozzie is afraid of bears.

      • Neal: I'll never be an open book, but New York was a pretty big chapter.

      • Peter: What did you bring me? (looks into the paper bag) Aah, deviled ham. Neal hated this...
        Elizabeth: That's because he had a nose.
        Peter: (with his mouth full) What?
        Elizabeth: Nothing!

      • Neal: And if I have a concern, I come to you.
        Dobbs: Any time, day or night.
        Mozzie: But I doubt he'll have any.
        Neal: Oh, but I do.
        Mozzie: Please don't.
