White Collar is about the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years.
Neal Caffrey, a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke. When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail, Neal suggests an alternative plan: He'll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can't be found on the right side of the law.
I liked the pilot, but episode two just felt like any other crime show on TV and that bores the hell out of me. This show could've been better and a lot more special if they'd left out the agency and just went with a Caffrey storyline.
I always thought it would be cool if Sawyer from Lost had his own show. I thought this could be it, but sadly I was mistaken.
@Pdr It definitely takes a little time to get invested in the show and you do have to overlook some budget constraints (poor special effects and bad green screen) at times. It's a good story line though.
