'White Collar' 3.06 'Scott Free' Review

7/12/2011 10:03pm EDT
White Collar
Deja vu is the theme of this week's White Collar, and it works - though perhaps not as well as it could have.

When the FBI starts tracking another wily con artist, Scott Rivers (Hutch Dano), everything feels a little familiar - but that's the point. For the characters, and for the audience, it's impossible not to hold the mirror up and draw parallels between Scott's present and Neal's past. Things get complicated when there's an attempt on Scott's life early on, making him equal parts criminal and victim. It's a great concept for an episode, one rife with opportunities for characte...

'White Collar' 3.05 'Veiled Threat' Review

7/5/2011 10:01pm EDT
White Collar
Hello again, White Collar! Apologies for cheating on you with The Voice, but I'm back now and I'm glad to see you haven't missed me too much. "Veiled Threat" isn't the best episode, but it has glimmers of greatness inside of it.

This week's premise is rife with possibilities: Neal, Peter and Jones go undercover at a bachelor auction to lure in a suspected "black widow" named Selena (played by Madchen Amick, who will always be the spouse from Viva Laughlin to me). While this makes Sara bring up that she and Neal have never been on a "real date," Elizabeth is more amused and tries ...

TV On DVD: 'White Collar: Season Two'

6/16/2011 5:43pm EDT
White Collar
With White Collar premiering its third season last Tuesday, Fox Home Entertainment released White Collar: Season Two on DVD on the same date. Here's my review.

The Show

I fell in love with White Collar almost right out of the gate. Ever since I saw Matt Bomer in ABC's Traveler, I knew he was going to be a star someday, and the show found a perfect match for him in veteran actor Tim DeKay. There was smart writing that balanced a case of the week with character development and an ongoing mythology, moving along each in equal measures. Great acting serviced well by strong writing - we...

'White Collar' 3.01 'On Guard' Review

6/7/2011 10:10pm EDT
White Collar
White Collar was a favorite of mine in its first season and parts of the second, but I have to admit that by the end of season two, the shine had started to come off the show for me. As a result, I became very interested in what season three would be - would the show win me back or would we break up?

The third-season premiere starts off in an awkward but not entirely unexpected place, with Neal and Mozzie trying to make a quick escape from Peter and Diana. Four days earlier, Neal's being polygraphed regarding the events of the second-season finale. (I've been polygraphed; this is...

'White Collar' 2.16 'Under The Radar' Recap and Review

3/9/2011 9:46am EST
White Collar
White Collar's second-season finale has everything but the kitchen sink: the return of several prominent guest characters, including the villainous Vincent Adler. His takedown was certainly rewarding, but did it live up to the hype? That depends on how you look at it.

Peter and Neal are strolling through New York, with Neal carrying a box full of fake Rolexes, on their way to the FBI office. Sara is there waiting for them, claiming she's found something big in the ocean - but first, we have to have the obligatory awkward moment between the two of them since they were locking lips a...

Top 10 Current TV Character Crushes

2/14/2011 12:30pm EST
Fairly Legal
It's Valentine's Day, and that means love is in the air (for some of us, anyway). It's also a perfect time to pay tribute to the fictional men who've made my heart melt this TV season, for one reason or another, or oftentimes several. These are ten guys who, if they were real, would have no problem getting my phone number.

Warning: there are spoilers for certain series. Each show is listed in each character's heading. If you're waiting for the DVD's, I'd advise skipping those particular sections.

Before I get too mushy, here's the criteria for making my list:

1) They had to be from...

'White Collar' 2.13 'Countermeasures' Recap And Review

2/8/2011 11:07pm EST
White Collar
It's a busy day for Neal Caffrey. First, he meets with Mozzie to check on the progress of their fractal antenna. Mozzie says using the phrase "good work" implies he has a job. I start laughing, and I'm still snickering by the time Neal returns back home, looking for June, and walks into Ford (Billy Dee Williams), an "old friend" of hers who's just moved back to Manhattan. He is naturally suspicious (oh, Matt Bomer, how I love you and your facial expressions) and starts asking questions, having no idea that when he uses the phrase "partners in crime," he's totally right. Worried, he ...

Interview: 'White Collar's' Tiffani Thiessen is no Trophy Wife

2/8/2011 11:30am EST
White Collar
There's that old saying that behind every man is a good woman. Well, behind dedicated FBI agent Peter Burke is his loyal, smart and successful wife, Elizabeth. The woman behind Mrs. Burke, actress Tiffani Thiessen, sat down with me before tonight's new episode of White Collar to talk about the perks and positives of playing one of the show's versatile and vibrant supporting characters.

I have to say, I've looked forward to talking to you because I've enjoyed your character so much. She is so well-developed and so not what one would expect in her role.

In the twentysome-odd years I’ve...

'White Collar' 2.12 'What Happens In Burma' Recap And Review

2/1/2011 11:02pm EST
White Collar
I've had my eye on this episode of White Collar for a little while; not for any particular reason, but because I thought I'd be the first indicator of how good season 2.5 really will be. The writers had plenty of time to cook up a good midseason premiere, and could use the framework of the show so far to set up the flashback episode, but there are no such advantages this week. White Collar doesn't miss a step, however, just as lively as ever.

Neal and Peter are visiting the UN, talking about their international travel histories (Neal: "I tried to get you to go to France." Peter: "No, ...

'White Collar' 2.11 'Forging Bonds' Recap And Review

1/25/2011 10:00pm EST
White Collar
A lot of answers get revealed in this week's White Collar - and in the tradition of the best mysteries, giving those secrets away only makes us more interested in asking further questions.

After getting his name from Julian Larsson last week, Peter is doing some research on Vincent Adler, and it's not pretty; there are plenty of newspaper clippings on how Adler disappeared seven years ago following an elaborate Ponzi scheme. He's surprised when, among all the copy, he finds a picture of Adler with Neal in the background - surprised enough that he decides to pay Neal a late-night vis...

'White Collar' 2.11 'Forging Bonds' Advance Review

1/24/2011 1:00pm EST
White Collar
The long-awaited, much-talked-about flashback episode of White Collar finally hits our screens tomorrow night, and it's one to remember if only because it answers most, if not all, the questions about how the characters as we know them came to be. How did Neal meet Mozzie? How did he fall for Kate? How did Peter end up on Neal's case? How did he finally catch him the first time? Most importantly, who the heck is Vincent Adler? All those questions will be answered in forty-odd minutes tomorrow night at 10 PM on USA.

After coming across a photo of Neal with Adler, Peter pays his partn...

'White Collar' 2.10 'Burke's Seven' Recap and Review

1/18/2011 11:04pm EST
White Collar
White Collar is back to finish out its second season, and it picks up almost right where it left off. After being shot at close range in the midseason finale, Mozzie is rushed to the hospital, with Neal by his bedside once he's out of surgery (following the fastest montage ever). The TV cynic in me knew long ago that he wasn't about to be killed off, but it's still nice to get that addressed immediately, so the audience gets an answer and the story can move forward. After all, imagine what's going on in Neal's head. He's spent the first half of the season upset over Kate's murder, a...

'White Collar' 2.10 'Burke's Seven' Advance Review

1/11/2011 5:00pm EST
White Collar left us with a bang - literally, as Mozzie was shot by a man named Julian Larsson (The Dresden Files' Paul Blackthorne). As we resume the show's second season, the normally cool Neal Caffrey is still running hot, knowing the two most important people in his life were targeted by the same conspiracy. Having finally caught Garrett Fowler (Noah Emmerich), he sets his sights on Larsson - and what could be just another "let's move on to the next page of our mythology" episode is an impressive midseason premiere.

Mozzie's fate is handled deftly within the opening minutes; not ...

Interview: Tim DeKay, Matt Bomer Return For More 'White Collar'

1/10/2011 3:00pm EST
White Collar
Together, veteran actors Tim DeKay and Matt Bomer make up the best partnership on television today, and possibly one of the best ever. (Okay, and they're good-looking too.) As FBI agent Peter Burke and "consultant" Neal Caffrey, DeKay and Bomer are the core of USA's hit series White Collar. With the show getting ready to return for the back half of season two, its two stars sat down with me on Thursday to talk about what's coming next and what they've learned during the ride so far.

Your chemistry is really what makes or breaks the show. So what's the secret to your success?

Matt Bomer Backs Religious Tolerance Crusade

11/24/2010 1:10pm EST
Matthew Bomer
Actor Matt Bomer is calling for Americans to be more tolerant towards religious practices as part of a new public service announcement (PSA).

The White Collar star is supporting Characters Unite, an organization which aims to fight prejudice against personal beliefs.

He says, "It's been a sensitive issue since, oh, the beginning of time, but lately it seems that religious intolerance has been growing. While we can disagree about the past and we can argue about the future, we're all here now, together."

"Together we all have the same basic right to hold and practice our own beliefs. Go...

USA Network announced the casting of Tiffani Thiessen in the newly greenlit pilot "White Collar." Also starring Matthew Bomer and Tim DeKay, Thiessen will play Elizabeth, a very grounded, intelligent accountant, who also happens to be the wife of FBI Agent Peter Stokes (DeKay).

"White Collar" revolves around the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years.

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" Hits Theaters October 4

9/3/2006 9:00am EDT
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
The original 1974 film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, shocked and stunned audiences with its bone-chilling realism. The horrifying story, drawn from a series of true events, is considered by many to be one of the greatest thrillers of all time and a landmark of terror that has influenced countless films in its wake. Iconic in popular culture, its menacing evil character, 'Leatherface,' will forever be one of the most recognizable screen villains.

With 2003's remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, starring Jessica Biel, the filmmakers at Platinum Dunes brought new life and vigor to the h...
