Did You Know?

White Collar has been picked up for a second season.

When I covered the first episode of White Collar the show lead up to some really great character development, showed a promise in camera style and location, but most importantly of all the single episode that I viewed was intelligent and crafty. The premier for the show returning for the second half of its season lacked in all those categories.

In the first half of the season were left wondering if Peter is a friend or a foe and in the series 1.5 premier we get our answer as Peter and Neal go undercover to stop a group of dangerous and corrupt Wall Street brokers. With Neal still suspicious of Peter this gives Neal the perfect opportunity to put Peter on the spot or flee and handle things on his own, with the help of his good friend Mozzie of course. Can their unlikely friendship/partnership last the stress of both working a case together and the tension that has built from Neal's suspicion?

What I disliked so much about this episode was the fact that it seemed rushed and if you hadn’t been watching the show your left scratching your head a bit. It doesn’t have the time to recap its previous plot twists and while it does a decent job of setting up the episode the acting just wasn’t there. At times I felt frustrated at how terrible the acting was in the show as Neal and Peter put on their fronts for the villains while not being so subtle about it. Come on villains you don’t see how transparent these guys are being? How convenient. The episode just seemed to crowded and there was not enough mystery to it to really grab you and hold you. All together a forgettable one if not for the first half follow up conclusions. Hopefully White Collar is able to snap back and get on track.
