Reviews: 'White Collar' and 'Covert Affairs' Come Back, But Only One Impresses

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jun 7th 2011 3:15PM
'White Collar' and 'Covert Affairs' both kick off new seasons Tuesday (at 9PM ET and 10PM ET respectively), and though they both abide by certain USA Network formulas, in execution they couldn't be more different.

'White Collar's' return is a sprightly, enjoyable affair -- stylishly shot, well acted and deftly threaded with moral ambiguity -- whereas the spy drama 'Covert Affairs' is surprisingly leaden.

I could go on about what 'White Collar' is doing right these days -- and I will in a bit -- but first, after a year of trying to crack this show's code, I've finally figured out what 'Covert Affairs' is: It's the spy show by and for people who've never seen 'Alias.'

Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer on Season 2 of 'White Collar'

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 12th 2010 3:02PM

If you're a fan of USA Network's 'White Collar,' you know that the show's appeal lies in the chemistry between its two stars, Tim DeKay (right in the picture above) and Matt Bomer. They play an unlikely pair in the battle against white collar crime: FBI Special Agent Peter Burke (DeKay) and suave master thief Neal Caffrey (Bomer). Over the show's first season, viewers have seen the trust between Caffrey and Burke -- who also happened to be the guy who caught him -- grow during their caper-of-the-week adventures. But there was also a fun continuing plot involving a kidnapping, a music box, a secret FBI task force, and the love of Caffrey's life.

That story continues when the show returns on Tuesday, July 13 at 9PM ET. DeKay and Bomer got on the phone with me last week to talk about season two, including a short list of upcoming guest stars. Bomer also mentions some of the skills he's gained by playing an art thief for the last year, and they don't just involve how to properly tie a skinny tie or wear a fedora.

'White Collar' - 'Out of the Box' Recap (season finale)

(S01E14) "I think there's a difference between loving the idea of someone and actually loving them." - Elizabeth

I'm going to say that this was the best episode of 'White Collar' since the pilot. Maybe it's because it was a season finale and the stakes are higher and a lot of things come to a head, but that's not always the case with last episodes of a season for a TV show. But this one had everything you could possibly want in a season finale: an intricate caper, witty dialogue, heartfelt moments, Peter being suspended, double crosses, Diahann Carroll with an important role in the plot, and even a surprising explosion (though I saw it coming -- not sure why). This was a really nice way to end the season.

It also had the return of an old character from the show ... and it's not just a one-time thing.

White Collar, Season One FinaleOh, snap. Neal is about to leave and seems ok with his decision. But then ... the unthinkable happens, the plane explodes, and his life is forever changed.

It's a great season finale for 'White Collar' (Tue., 10PM ET on USA) that leaves things wide open for season two. Creator Jeff Eastin has said the focus will stay on Peter and Neal, supported by Elizabeth and Mozzie.

Are you a 'White Collar' fan? How did you like the season finale?

Tim DeKay Breaks Down His 'White Collar' Success

by Mike Hess, posted Mar 9th 2010 2:00PM
In yet another hit for cable, USA's 'White Collar' -- with a cast led by star Tim DeKay -- is just another reason why people are jumping to cable for quality television. "Culturally, the opportunity to look at different venues in general -- not only on TV, but online, on our phones -- has put in our psyche that there's so much there to watch and so many avenues," DeKay explained during a chat with us.

So, to someone who maybe hasn't ventured out and watched 'White Collar' yet, what's your Cliff's Notes summary of it?
'White Collar' is a show about the unlikely pairing of an FBI agent and an ex-con solving smart, glamorous, interesting and provocative crimes in a sometimes very funny way. It's 'Thomas Crowne Affair' meets 'Midnight Run.' That relationship between Robert DeNiro and Charles Grodin, they're very different but you can tell they kind of like each other even though they're quite opposite. And the 'Thomas Crowne Affair' gives it that snap and hipness.

'White Collar' - 'Front Man' Recap

White Collar
(S01E13) "Paranoia is a skill, the secret to longevity." - Moz

Last week we had someone from Neal's past (Keller) coming back to cause problems, and I mentioned that it seems like the show does that a lot, a la 'Burn Notice.' And tonight continued that trend, with Wilkes coming into Neal's life, kidnapping a girl and wanting Neal to do some favors for him in exchange for the girl's life (of course, he has no intention of releasing the girl and would probably kill Neal too if he had to). The funny thing is, even though all these baddies from Neal's past keep making appearances, I bet none of them have anything to do with the Kate and the music box and none of them are the big bad guy in charge of everything.

What, you think it's actually Fowler? Yeah, right!

How'd You Like To See A 'Burn Notice'/'White Collar' Crossover Episode?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 5:30PM
Burn NoticeTV viewers often have "I wonder what would happen if ______ and ______ had a crossover episode?" fantasy. There have been many crossovers, of course. Everything from Jessica Fletcher appearing on 'Magnum, P.I.' to The Green Hornet and Kato appearing on 'Batman' and the recent crossovers we saw on all of the 'CSI' shows. Now 'White Collar' creator Jeff Eastin is talking about a crossover with another USA Network show.

In this conference call with TV critics, Eastin mentions that he'd love to do a crossover episode with 'Burn Notice.' He's friends with 'Burn Notice' creator Matt Nix and they've joked about it, but he might bring it up to USA for the second season (the season finale of 'White Collar' airs next Tuesday).

'White Collar' - 'Bottlenecked' Recap

(S01E12) "Pinot. You've seen 'Sideways'." - wine expert, to Peter

So, I'm sure you were fascinated by the story Neal told Peter tonight, about how bottles of wine bottled before 1945 are different than those bottled after because of the atomic bomb that was dropped in that year. I was wondering if it was true, and thanks to the web, I found this article about how cesium 137 and how it doesn't exist naturally, it's a result of nuclear fallout, and wine bottled before nuclear testing wouldn't have it. I love learning stuff like that.

I'm happy to see Diahann Carroll with a larger role in 'White Collar.' I don't know if it's going to be a regular thing (probably not), but there were many episodes where we either didn't see her at all or in just a quick cameo, so having her actually be part of the case (such as last week with Neal helping her in the case involving a relative) is welcome.

(S01E10) "Please tell me there's surveillance video of this!" - Elizabeth, to Peter, about his flirting

After watching the head-scratching two-hour season premiere of 'Lost,' it's a relief to watch a show like 'White Collar.' Not that this show is two-dimensional, it's just that it's like a palate cleanser to watch a show that doesn't involve time travel, smoke monsters, alternate realities, and healing water pools.

Sure, this episode had organ harvesting and fake kidney removal scams, but it was easy to follow.

Review: White Collar - Bad Judgment

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 27th 2010 12:25AM
White Collar
(S01E09) While watching Human Target (on a special night tonight) right before this episode of White Collar, I got to thinking how many old-fashioned, fun action shows there are on TV right now. This show, Burn Notice, Human Target. They're throwbacks to the 60s or 70s or 80s, the lone hero (or the hero with a partner) helping either an innocent civilian or the government take down the bad guys, using cleverness, gadgets, disguises and fighting skills.

That's not to say they're just fluffy, throwaway entertainments ... well, maybe to a certain extent they are. But Burn Notice and White Collar have a lot more going on than that, while at the same time not resorting to brooding, troubled heroes like a lot of characters on many other modern shows.

So the question that all White Collar fans have about this episode is whether or not they answer the big cliffhanger question from the fall finale. And that question, of course, is this: will Neal Caffrey wear a stylish hat this episode?

OK, so that's not the big question that fans want asked. They want to know what it meant when Peter was in the hotel room with Kate, wearing the ring, looking all bad guy-ish. Did the show explain that in this episode? Read on...
