Review - White Collar Season 1 Episode 13 Front Man

Several times, Neal has stated his dislike of guns, and said it two more times last night. Maybe he should reconsider. An occasional shootout would help with the total lack of tension or danger. Who says white collar crimes can't be exciting?

The smooth style of Neal and his infallibility is part of the problem. He's slick and it's very cool, but he comes close to perfection when it comes to going up against anyone not a brunette. Agent Rice (Diane Neal) employees Neal to help her with a kidnapping case, so he gets tangled up with his past again. Just when things are supposed to get worse, Neal deals with the situation easily. In this episode, he is kidnapped and forced to do a couple tasks. He stalls long enough and Peter saves him in time. The girl is saved and everyone is grateful for Neal's heroics. Nothing spectacular and nothing unexpected.

Alex returns to help Neal with the music box problem. Neal gets his ankle tracker off as part of the operation, and only then will Alex meet with him to tell him where the music box is. Apparently, Neal and Alex had something before Kate came, so Alex naturally does not trust him.

I gotta say the show is starting to bore me. I don't get Neal's fixation on Kate, and I don't get the mystery behind her. The crimes are never too smart, and there's hardly any action.

Score: 8.6/10
