HUSTLE (BBC UK) “Episode 5'' Review

HUSTLE Series 7 Episode 5 - The game of football has been ruined by the champagne, fast cars, WAGS…Christiano Ronaldo. This week the HUSTLE gang go up against the greedy men responsible. The mark is the football agent who put Ash’s beloved local football team out of business and the grifters are looking to make him pay. This programme is fantasy, it’s not a documentary about how to scam. It’s flashy, farfetched, bordering on the ridiculous. But I love it! At several times you’re asked to suspend you disbelief, screw it up in a ball and throw it out the window. Do that and you, like me, will find this one of the most enjoyable things on TV.
