Storyline

With a few months left on his four-year sentence, criminal mastermind Neal Caffrey escapes from maximum security prison to save his relationship with his girlfriend. FBI Agent Peter Burke, the man who had chased him for years and had finally caught him, is called in to track him down. He easily finds Neal at his girlfriend's apartment, deflated and defeated. She has completely disappeared. Back in prison and with four years added to his sentence, Neal decides to make a deal with Agent Burke to help him in finding other master criminals. The deal is made and Neal is released, with a GPS ankle monitor, of course, into the custody of Agent Burke. The uneasy partnership proves a success and Neal becomes an official FBI consultant, living large, to Agent Burke's astonishment and frustration, in a wealthy widow's guest-room. Neal, also, secretly brings in an old friend to help him find his girlfriend. Written by ley-moon

Give and take
24 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a show with one of the dullest titles ever created, WC's pilot sparkled, at least in parts. A veteran FBI agent snags his man, a petty thief and con artist. Instead of having the poor guy rot in jail, the agent puts him to work on a case involving an elusive criminal nicknamed Snow White. The agent and con artist have some very lively dialog between them, which makes up for some of the slower scenes. The agent's wife is played by a familiar TV face fro the past, Tiffany Thiessen, and the con artists's new landlady is played by Dihann Carroll. In a few short weeks, MONK will be gone for good. I imagine USA is banking considerably on the success of this show. If the pilot is any indication, I suspect it will work out just fine.
