Need a dose of police crime drama? Netflix offer too many options? Look no further, White Collar saves the day. Different from your conventional Law & Order-esque plot, White Collar offers a new perspective on crime-solving. The USA Network show aired from 2009 to 2014, so there’s no need to wait around for the next season or episode, all 6 seasons are up there!
Here’s a quick rundown of the show: con artist Neal Caffrey is serving a 4-year sentence for his white collar crimes. With 3 months left in his sentence, Neal breaks out to find his girlfriend. In order to avoid an extension in his sentence, he strikes a deal with the FBI agent who caught him in the first place- Agent Peter Burke. Neal becomes a Criminal Informant for the NY white collar division and helps Agent Burke catch dangerous criminals.
Each episode deals with a new crime and criminal, and each season introduces a a deeper problem to solve- something that usual takes the entire season and deals with the main characters’ personal lives.
Now I know my short synopsis might not have 100% hooked you, so here’s a picture of Neal Caffrey:
Not much more can be said because spoilers are no fun. What I can say is this: Neal Caffrey is one of the most interesting characters I have seen. He’s too good at conning, too good at FBI-ing, and too good at getting his way: he’s too good to be true.
Having finished all 81 episodes, I can say assuringly that White Collar is a wonderful option if you’re looking for a show to watch while multitasking.
