Why You Should Watch White Collar On USA
Knowing my fondness of New York City and suits, a friend recently pushed me hard to start watching White Collar. It’s been around a few years now, and I’d heard good things, primarily from people who want to engage in certain unwholesome activities with Matt Bomer (star, as con man Neal Caffrey).
I started watching it on netflix and cruised through the first two seasons in a matter of days. I then also obtained the first ten episodes of season 3 and flew through those as well.
In a few words, the premise basically consists of a con man (Matt Bomer) joining forces with a FBI Agent (Tim DeKay) to solve cases, with things getting complicated along the way.
The men of White Collar
While I am a straight male, I will admit Matt Bomer (as Neal Caffrey) is a good looking dude. I might even take some hair style inspiration from him in the near future. He also manages to rock a hat in a away I am envious of… perhaps because my head is the size of Shrek’s… but I digress.
Tim DeKay (as Peter Burke), the other star of White Collar, fits the part of FBI agent well. Tim has been in a lot of stuff, but I honestly only remember him from one thing, a 2007 HBO show called Tell Me You Love Me. While the show was interesting, I saw way more of Tim than I need to, we are talking full-frontal. So, if you like that sort of thing, go look that up, you’re welcome.
Willie Garson (as Mozzie) gets a chance to play it straight as Neal’s sidekick. Most people know Willie from his many years on Sex and the City. White Collar must be a nice change of pace from the pink suits and other infamous outfits he was subjected to on Sex and the City.
The ladies of White Collar
I’d like the shake the hand of the White Collar casting director. Some shows manage to cast exclusively hot ladies, White Collar is one of them. Yes she might be a little older, but Kelly Kapowski (I mean Tiffani Thiessen, left) will always be hot. Hilarie Burton (as Sara Ellis, middle) and Alexandra Daddario (as Kate, right) are high points of hotness as well.
An actual New York City show
While many NYC-based shows are awkwardly filmed on lots in LA, you can tell White Collar is actually primarily shot in New York. When I lived downtown, I actually saw White Collar production signs before I started watching the show. Sure, they put up fake news stands or ATMs, but when they are on 5th avenue, they are actually on 5th avenue. I think that’s pretty cool.
