This is what we're watching tonight, since TNT has renewed its 'heist dramedy' for a 2nd season. Premise: an honest man uses a gang of cons to right wrongs. I prefer the British series 'Hustle' (where they're all cons) but that's not on right now, so this romp'll do for now.
One con looked familiar, and I realized that Gina Bellman played quirky 'Jane' on the BBC version (the good one) of 'Coupling'.That's one of the problems of 'fiction' tv for me. It always takes me awhile to re-adjust my thinking when an actor goes from playing a comic role to a straight bit. *I still can't watch 'House' - he played too many goofs on the BBC. (Think that's why he came to the U.S.? To be able to play grown-ups?)
