Storyline

The story of a group of elite con artists, who each week pull off a complicated scam with several twists. Mickey is the group's leader, who comes up with the plans. Albert is a veteran con man who in his later years is a "roper," searching out suitable victims and introducing them to his cohorts. Ash comes up with all the locations and equipment needed for the cons. Stacie steps in whenever she needs to use her feminine wiles. The group is rounded off by Danny, a young amateur grifter who Mickey takes under his wing. Written by rmlohner

Trivia

Bharat Nalluri conceived the idea for the series in 2002 while filming the first season of MI-5 (2002). He then pitched the concept to Jane Featherstone, Managing Director of Kudos Film & Television which was the production company behind Spooks, in the back of a taxi while returning from a day's filming. Intrigued by the idea, Featherstone recruited Tony Jordan to develop it into a workable proposal. See more »

Makes Oceans 11 look like a joke
13 March 2011 | by copperncherrioSee all my reviews

There are 6 episodes per season and each episode (although not congruent with one another) are made to a movie caliber. There's some amount of wink, wink and hint, hint at the cameras, breaking the forth wall. But it's subtle and not overwhelming. The pace and chemistry of this crew is electrifying and addicting.

There's not much of an overall story plot, other than a con per episode and there isn't too much of a background on all of the characters, but you will learn to love them within a nick of time.

The cons are justified although not like freaking Leverage where there is a sappy scene giving the money to the less deserved. No this crew is after the money among other things, and do not make excuses for their own gain. However, they are so charming, smart, and yet humane that you learn to love them and watch them as they take down the greedy. Take note, that they do not go after those who have always wronged others, but just those whose greed leads path for this crew to take their money away.

Hustle is my favorite "fun" TV show by far, because you just learn to love the con as well as the characters. Also the plot per episode is just so smart and outside the commonality of the con plots that it is astounding that this show isn't the number one show of all time.

Also, I love Jaime Murray (who plays Stacy), I think she's puts sexy, smart, and beautiful all into one character and person.

Lastly, they all have British accents. Just the notch that you need to bring you head over heels about this show.
