Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

The criminal aspect is treated lightly -- violence is rare, and the group's marks are always dishonest. For example, in one episode, the team sets up a greedy racehorse owner (who also directs adult films), selling him a bunk horse for £100,000. The team members realize they've been duped when the owner writes a clause into the contract requiring the horse to win a race before he pays up. An elaborate switcheroo ensues -- which ultimately fails when celebratory champagne squirted on the horse causes its camouflage paint to come off.

With several twists and turns in each episode, this slick, blithe crime show is loads of fun to watch. But the show is designed with adults in mind, and frequent sexual scenarios and scenes set in bars mean it's not a great fit for younger viewers. And even teens who can handle those elements might get confusing messages about right and wrong thanks to the show's inherent glamorization of crime.
