Have you seen Hustle? ( I used to have a fascination with con men and cons... Hustle is worth a watch... it's sort of a "bubble gum" TV series, but it is produced by the BBC so it's at least a little intelligent... and every episode is based on an actual documented or classic long con... and as an added bonus, no one hotter than Jaime Murray ;)
I've never heard of Hustle. Thank you power of internets and kind posters on blogs! It's now at the top of my Netflix Queue. God save the BBC (and bring season two of 'The IT Crowd' very soon).
