I don’t think I’ve mentioned it much before, but I’ve become a big fan of Hustle, a relatively new show on AMC, Saturday nights at 9 PM Central time. Think of it as a cool British version of of Ocean’s 11, but in an hour-long format, with more likeable characters, and with more emphasis on the beauty of the con and less on playing sleight-of-hand with the viewers.
The cast is solid: Robert Vaughn as the old pro; Adrian Lester (a relative newcomer) as the leader of the gang, Jaime Murray (a total newcomer) as the femme fatale, Mark Warren (recently in Band of Brothers) looking like a younger incarnation of Dennis Leary, and longtime British TV actor Robert Glenister as the trusty jack-of-all-trades.
They’re about 10 episodes into the first season right now, and I think I’ve watched all of them so far. I’m gonna try to review each episode as it comes out, and try to catch up on the back episodes here eventually.
