Trivia

In creating the first episodes, Tony Jordan drew inspiration from the long tradition of confidence tricks and heists in Hollywood and television, including The A-Team (1983), The Sting (1973) and The Grifters (1990) (and in a similar vein, the films and TV series of Mission: Impossible (1966)). Ocean's Eleven (2001) was also an influence. See more »

Brill!!
25 February 2004 | by BunnyPhobicSee all my reviews

This is a crime drama about a group of 'long con' artists, lead by the recently out of jail master, Mickey Stone who get together to make cash quick by scamming the wealthy for all they've got. A shares scam, the arts world, a health spare and a casino will all be targeted by these sexy, confident criminals who can make you say thank you for taking your life savings.

I saw the first episode of this 6 parter last night and it was brilliant! I'd describe it as a cross between 'Ocean's 11' with the high crime, stylishness of it and 'Spooks' with the high tech look, quirky camera angels and plot twists (There are these weird, but funky moment when the action slows down and the characters talk to the camera! It's very cool!) Definitely will keep watching, and I'd advise you all to do the same! 8/10 but bound to get better!
