In 3 words, how would i describe "Sneaky Pete":

Predictable, Uninspired, Shallow

Each scene is marred by an overwhelming feeling of haste, as if dallying too long will unravel the shoddy plot. There is no cohesion, no glue that binds everything together. It felt like a flurry of average ideas, hastily mashed together, and presented to the audience, expecting us to accept it all at face value.

The writing feels graceless, forced, and lacking direction. I can almost see the impending conflict(s) on the drawing board as they're laid out in each scene - the solutions to which range from lazy to downright boring. It would not surprise me if some clash of vision led to the resolutions to in-show conflicts being drawn from a hat - filling in the blanks along the way. I caught myself several times, face in hand, groaning at the predictability of it all.

The relationships between characters feels equally artificial. I've made deeper connections in the line of the supermarket. The acting is sub-par, and the dialogue is uninspired.

I cannot recommend this show to anyone.

Quite frankly, it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Avoid unless hospitalized with a chronic illness, and the only alternative is reruns of Wheel of Fortune.
