'White Collar' Series Finale: 'Au Revoir' - The Big Goodbye

December 19th, 2014 9:06am EST
'White Collar' Series Finale Recap And Review: 'Au Revoir' - The
After six seasons and countless capers, USA's White Collar draws to a close with an episode appropriately titled. Definitively closing the book on the partnership of Neal Caffrey and Peter Burke, "Au Revoir" might divide some fans who are upset about its final act, but ultimately delivers everything we've come to expect from one of television's classiest and most fun shows.

We open exactly where we left off last week, with Neal trying to convince Woodford (Gavin Lee) to accept Peter as the newest member of the Pink Panthers. Keller's (Ross McCall) reaction to this development is awesome: "...

Matt Bomer And Tim DeKay Talk 'White Collar' Finale: 'Do Not Walk Away'

Matt Bomer And Tim DeKay Talk 'White Collar' Finale: 'Do Not Wal
Tonight's conclusion of White Collar means that we also have to bid farewell to one of TV's best duos: Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay.

In addition to making a dynamic team as con man Neal Caffrey and his FBI minder Peter Burke on the USA drama, they are also a fantastic partnership off-screen, showing what magic can be made when two hard-working actors come together to form one great unit.

We spoke to Matt and Tim on Monday to ask them why they think they've worked so well together - and what their own opinions were about White Collar's ultimate ending.

Naturally, hints about tonight's last ep...

'White Collar' Recap: 'Whack-A-Mole' - Almost To The End

December 12th, 2014 8:11am EST
'White Collar' Recap And Review: 'Whack-A-Mole' - Almost To The
Just two episodes remain for White Collar, so it's time to get down to business - the business of bringing down the Pink Panthers, that is. Things ramp up massively in "Whack-A-Mole," which contains a number of show staples - like Neal hiding things and bad guys being bad - en route to preparing the audience for the finish line.

Picking up right where last week's episode ended, Neal tries to placate Panthers boss Woodford (Gavin Lee), who's convinced that Neal is the only person not potentially betraying him. Woodford is determined to find the mole himself, or put the crew's master plan to...

Interview: 'White Collar's' Willie Garson Gets Historical In 'PERIODS.'

'White Collar's' Willie Garson Gets Historical In 'PERIODS.'
For years now, Willie Garson has entertained us playing TV's ultimate quirky sidekick Mozzie on USA's soon to be concluded White Collar; he's been a great foil for every other member of the ensemble, directed for the show, and had another Mozzie-centric episode last week.

But he's found time to bring his talents to other projects, too. One of them is PERIODS., a hilarious semi-improvised film that turns history and literary classics into something not quite so serious. We had the chance last week to ask Willie a few questions about his newest and decidedly different gig.

'White Collar' Recap: 'All's Fair' - The Former Mrs. Mozzie

'White Collar' Recap And Review: 'All's Fair' - The Former Mrs.
We're now officially into the second half of the last season of White Collar. Two weeks from tonight, it'll be curtains for Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke and the whole team. But before they go, it's time for one last Mozzie episode, which is pretty on the nose but also serves to remind us that even he has changed since we first met him.

It's too quiet for Neal's taste, and Peter's worried that the Pink Panthers may have caught on to him. Neal's worried about a certain empty shipping container. They both show up at the FBI office, where everyone else is still working on the Exodus algorithm and...

Matt Bomer
People magazine rightfully declared Aussie-born actor Chris Hemsworth as "The Sexiest Man Alive." The actor, who has impressive bulked up for roles in "Marvel's The Avengers" and Thor 2: The Dark World, has definitely earned the title. But this blogger, who loves all things television, couldn't help but wonder: who television's sexiest men alive? Here are my top 10 picks in no particular order.

'White Collar' Recap: 'Return To Sender' - Guess Who's Back?

November 14th, 2014 9:04am EST
'White Collar' Recap And Review: 'Return To Sender' - Guess Who'
After returning in solid form last week, White Collar continues its final season and the story of Neal Caffrey infiltrating the Pink Panthers. And because this is the final season, the show has found room for one of its favorite recurring bad guys to make one last appearance. The result is a satisfying cocktail of banter and quirky characterization that continues to set the table for bigger things down the line.

Neal shows up at the Burke residence armed with coffee and surprised that Elizabeth has moved back to New York, which is probably a good thing because Peter's going through a fix-e...

'White Collar' Recap & Review: 'Borrowed Time' - Neal Joins A New Team

November 7th, 2014 9:01am EST
'White Collar' Premiere Recap And Review: 'Borrowed Time' - Neal
White Collar is back, with a six-episode story that will let audiences say goodbye to Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke and the entire quirky crimefighting team. How did the story start? Well, it's not a page-turner, but it has the same charm and appeal that you'd expect from this show by now.

Picking up on the same day that the fifth-season finale concluded, "Borrowed Time" finds Peter wrongly concluding that Neal - frustrated with the FBI's refusal to release him from their long-standing arrangement - has gone on the run, but very quickly realizing with the help (and mere existence) of Mozzie th...

Jeff Eastin Previews The Final Season Of 'White Collar'
New York's classiest crime show is about to come to an end. Tonight is the premiere of White Collar, kicking off the USA hit's sixth and final season. To help us say goodbye to Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke and the gang, we recruited creator and showrunner Jeff Eastin, who spoke with us about the decision to end the series and how things have changed since its premiere five years ago.

What made this the right time to wrap things up? "You can probably guess it was never the creator's idea to wind it down," he laughed. "For USA, I've got another show on their network, and I think the network's s...

Call 911: Cop Shows Have Officially Taken A Turn For The Absurd
Who’s solving crime on television these days?

On one hand we’ve got “Detectives Olivia Benson” (Mariska Hargitay) and “Fin Tutuola” (Ice-T) careening up, siren blaring with the red light spinning on top of the car; the ubiquitous ‘Blue Bloods’ clan; the squads from ‘Rookie Blue’, ‘Major Crimes’, ‘Hawaii Five-0’, ‘Longmire’ and ‘Chicago PD’; plus those two from ‘Motive’, not to be confused with the other two from ‘The Bridge’ or ‘The Killing’ or ‘Murder In The First’.

What they all have in common is that, at least in these procedural dramas, all the characters are “on the job.” The down si...

Treat Williams of 'White Collar': 'Eight-Page Monologues Explaining My Entire History with Neal' Are Challenging

White Collar resumed its fourth season last night on USA. The premiere started with Neal’s father (real name: James Bennett) telling his son what led to their family entering witness protection decades earlier.

Bennett is played by Treat Williams who recently participated in a conference call with reporters. Here are the highlights:

The 10 Television Characters I Still Miss

March 28th, 2012 8:00am EDT
Line of Fire
There are lots of TV shows I miss. But then there are the characters: individual performances so good they came alive, and I still wonder about them. It's one thing to mourn a show for awhile, another to ask yourself years later, "Whatever happened to...?" as if that person was real.

Here are ten TV characters that I still think about, in (almost) chronological order of their departures.

1. Jennifer Sampson in Line of Fire, as played by Julie Ann Emery (2003)

This week's White Collar brings back some absent characters, introduces some new ones, and mixes them together to create a lackluster outing.

Elizabeth's birthday is coming up, and Peter wants the weekend off "unless someone dies or Neal does something big. Maybe not even if someone dies." He's leaving Diana in charge, even as Diana reveals that she's engaged to her girlfriend Christie. Sounds like everything is going grand, right?

The lead suspect is Andy Woods (Dylan Baker, who's played a bad guy so often we should just assume he's the villain every time he shows up), who's in charge of the school's endowment and may have cartel ties. To check him out, our dynamic duo goes undercover, which leads to plenty of entertaining shenanigans.

Just minutes after their arrival, Neal gets mistaken for a substitute teacher, but rolls with it when he s...
