I really enjoyed this show. The classic interaction between con man and straight man was played pretty well here, with the added dimension of the straight man actually being pretty smart himself, and their developing a real friendship over the course of the show. A few of the overarching plot points were cheesy or cliche at times, and I was disappointed at how different plot developments were sometimes either pointless because if they went one way it would completely change the show (so you knew it would never happen that way and therefore had no suspense), or felt like they just reset most of the character development we had seen, but the normal episodes of Caffrey and Burke working together to take down the bad guy of the week were charming enough that they made up for it.

It was an interesting take on the police procedural since you had the supposedly-former criminal helping law enforcement, and even though that's been done before as well, the focus on the titular white collar crimes rather than the typical murder gave it enough freshness to separate it from the pack. While I'm disappointed it was eventually canceled rather than wrapped up by choice, I'm glad that there was at least enough advance notice that it had a proper ending, and I think it definitely had a long enough run that I'm not overly sad that it's done. Overall, a top-notch show, and one I'm sure I'll watch again all the way through someday.

This is a great show. I love Matt Bomer, and he is brilliant as Neal Caffrey. If you haven't seen the show, you should watch the pilot, you will be hooked.

This is truly one of USA Network's most gripping series. It grabs a hold of you with it's humor and fun, and then introduces you to interesting and sometimes quirky characters. Of the series that premiers around the same time, Burn Notice, & Psych This is the only just concluded. If you are interested in a more playful story from both the criminal and law enforcement point of view then go to the first season and binge watch this show until the end of its sixth season. Neil and the cast will provide hours upon hours of entertainment.
