White Collar Review: "All In"

at . Comments

Neal always seems to find himself in the middle of trouble, and this week, nothing has changed. I've never seen a guy so good looking and...well, he's really good looking.

Neal finds himself in the middle of an organized Asian crime scene in the heart of Chinatown. It is nice to see White Collar shoot at different locations - it's New York people! Empire State Building, Little Italy, Soho, Greenwich Village just to name a few off the top of my mind...take advantage man, take advantage. 

We do have a few things that we love and hate in this week's episode. To start off, we will go with the sweet:

  • The bond that is continuously increasing between Peter and Neal. Soon, they will be the Bert and Ernie of USA.
  • The amount of beautiful women each week that flirt with Neal and as always, get turned down. Not only is he super hot and sexy, but he's a one woman kind of guy..swoon.
  • Neal's ability to think quick on his feet - he's not only got the looks, but the brains too!

Now, for what we could live without:

  • The continuous cat and mouse game that Kate keeps playing..we get it's the only consistent theme throughout the episodes, but we do believe there should be something more to what we've got to work with. Maybe if we could see what Kate is up to and learn more about her character it would be okay. Now, it just seems silly and a weak storyline.
  • Elizabeth's character. Something needs to change - we expected so much more from Kelly Kapowski! At the very least some steamy sex scene's with her hubbie Peter - or better yet Neal!

Like the saying goes, the sweet wouldn't be as sweet without the bitter.

Although we are sad to be winding down the episodes before the season finale, we are very excited to be finding more and more about Kate and her whereabouts. Although it wasn't much, this week in "All In", we do learn from the double crossing Asian that Kate was taken by the FBI.

Could this mean it's a good cop - or a bad cop?! We're betting on bad cop...but, who knows?! Only time will tell..until next week, we leave you guys with a few of our favorite White Collar quotes:

Neal: What's next partner?
Peter: Don't call me that. | permalink

Elizabeth: Another all nighter?
Peter: I married a perceptive woman.
Elizabeth: I married a predictable man. | permalink

Neal:(referring to Peter's silly socks) Are those standard FBI issued? | permalink


In all the movie is a phenomenon, considering the plot, settings and the cast. The characters really intrigued me. Maybe i could one day be oppurtuned to feature in such a bluckbuster.


Does anyone know what the song was that was playing at the end of the episode?


I think your calling for Sex scenes to be very silly. The fact that Neal has so much chance yet doesn't go for it, just really shows how focused this is and how dangerous Neal can be, he's not going to let himself slip out that easily. He's like a Stripper in a way, He won't give unless he has something to take. I don't agree that the Kate/Neal storyline is weak but I do agree to having it to need a bit more info but this also is a key in this show only taking itself to a certain amount of seriousness.
I do think one episode needs to be really focused on it though. This is pretty much a Mystery/Romance, so I think the whole cat & mouse game being extended is acceptable but once again, we would like to know some more about Kate after two eps strongly hinting at the storyline. Also, I'd imagine Kate to either be a Darker Elizabeth or pretty much female Neal but I have the horrible feeling shes going to be a very, desperate character.
