White Collar Review: "Pilot"

at . Comments

USA has a new hit on its hands with White Collar starring irresistibly hunky and ever so charming Matt Bomer as Neal Caffrey. Playing his opposite and pseudo partner is Tim DeKay as Peter Burke.

Peter is in charge of a large investigation on trying to find a criminal that goes by the name of The Dutchman. Lucky for him, Neal ruins his chances of freedom by escaping prison a couple months before his sentencing is over. This means that with Neal's super smart brain cell power, Peter might be able to catch the guy.

Tiffani Theissen also stars as Elizabeth Burke - Peter's way-too-sexy-for-him wife. Her character really doesn't have a point other than drawing in old Saved By The Bell/90210fans - right now. Hopefully, as the season progresses we will see some breakout plotlines for her character.

Willie Garson, Stanley from Sex and the City, plays Mozzie - Neal's friend who somehow knows everything about anything. He gives him the much needed leads on cracking the cases. How does he do it? I guess we will have to wait to see.

So far, the only problem that I run into is the shows timing - Friday nights at 10pm? I guess it's okay if you are a parent or someone with out a social life, but for us that do like to head out, we must remember to set our Teevo's and DVR's. If you are like me living in ancient times before the amazingness that is digital recorders, I guess your social life will have to wait until after 11pm.

There is much to love about this new show, from the incredibly sexy cast (and Stanley to boot!) to their fun and interesting rapport with each other makes this show a must see. Don't just take our word for it - in our full recap, but check it out! Friday night's are finally worthy enough to stay in!

The banter has already begun between the two main characters, below check out some of our favorite quotes of these two fellas:

Peter: Did you just lie to the priest?
Neal: Do you think Dianne is attractive?
Peter: Yeah
Neal: Then we're good. | permalink

Neal: Did you really put Elizabeth under surveillance before you asked her out? Peter, I underestimated you. | permalink

Peter: You moved?
Neal: (looking around the Park Ave mansion) Yeah, it's a nicer place don't you think? | permalink

Burke: You look like a cartoon!
Caffrey: This is classic Rat Pack - this is Devore!
Burke: Oh, sorry, Dino. | permalink
