Storyline

In London, two teams are formed and prepare their operations, destined as adversaries. Michael 'Mickey Bricks' Stone is out of jail after two years for an unrelated offense; everybody knows he will do at least once more what he's good in, in fact the best in Britain: the intricate 'long con', always prepared by his American associate Albert Stroller, who finds and gains the confidence of a wealthy mark; their other known cahoots are Ash Morgan and Stacie Monroe. Meanwhile in the police force, a new man is stepping in as new head of the task force to catch them; his failed predecessor, DS Terri Hodges, fills him in on the findings, and Mickey's correctly presumed next target: businessman Peter Williams. The scam this time is to pretend a computer delay of under a second allows the 'investors' to earn a fortune on oil company Vestron's stock just before it rises as a consequence of its annual report, then pull the plug and run with the 'seed money'. A surprise element, however spotted ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The building that Mickey is standing on the street in front of at the beginning of the episode is called The Red Herring. He then looks up at a billboard that says "Never Give A Sucker An Even Break". See more »

Goofs

The opening credits show a drawing of a D6 die floating down from top of screen. As the D6 die descends, all sides of the die are shown. The error is the fact we see the "1" pip and the "6" pip on adjacent sides next to each other when the "1" pip and "6" pip should be on opposite sides. On a D6 die opposite sides will always total "7". This error would apply to every episode using the same opening credits presentation. See more »

Quotes

Danny Blue: [after Mickey punches him in the face for forcing his way into a con] So am I in?
Michael 'Mickey Bricks' Stone: You're in.

The sexiest and most stylish show about the con in a long time!
25 March 2006 | by scott-marloweSee all my reviews

The premiere episode of Hustle is a great introduction to the crew. In the beginning, it's Albert, the older, gentleman, con-man, Mickey Bricks, the young genius master planner, fresh out of prison, Ashe, the expert, who's been reduced to doing the flop, and Stacy, the femme fatale. Mickey tells them all he's getting them together for one last big score.

The con is crashed by Danny, a young up and comer who seems to always be a heart beat away from being caught. To pay him back for crashing his con, Mickey insists on referring to him as "Mr. Redford" during the con.

This episode has a nice "behind the scenes" feel to it, both from the perspective of the con men and the police inspectors, switching back and forth from one view to the other, letting us become familiar with each side of the con coin, so to speak. For example, near the beginning of the episode, we get to see both the police and the con crew doing a briefing on the upcoming job.

This is one of the slicker and more intricate plots in the series, and it serves well to establish the feel of the show. As usual, there are enough hints for someone who's paying very close attention to figure it out. Barely. Most folks will have to watch it two or three times to see all the hints.
