Why'd this get cancelled?
11 December 1998 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

Players was a 90's update of the Sting-like con artist/scam series, which dates back to shows like Mission Impossible and

Switch. The three characters were an interesting mix, and the cons were both complex enough to be believable but simple enough that you didn't sit there later and go, "Huh?" NBC basically under-promoted it and subjected it to frequent pre-emptions in

its Friday time-slot. Boo.
