Fun Stuff
10 January 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Its snappy writing and the interplay between the three main characters makes Thick As Thieves a fun romp. The witty dialog carries things along as Stan, Annie and George sort out the living arrangements now that George has been released from prison and found his wife and best pal playing house.

Obviously a low budget show with little money spent on sets, locations etc. and limited retakes (the actors occasionally stumble over their lines), the emphasis is on the words, and plotting the changing dynamics between the threesome over Thick As Thieves's 8 episodes which unfold like an extended play.
