Is It Any Good?

SMITH is network TV that's so glossy and gorgeous it looks like the movies -- or at least like HBO. And like HBO, Smith is full of racy themes and bad behavior. Each member of his squad has an area of expertise -- transportation, weapons, disguise -- as well as their own complicated back stories. As viewers learn bits and pieces of these characters' pasts, Smith gains depth and becomes more compelling.

With an excess of adult themes, Smith is definitely adult fare. But it's high-quality stuff that, aside from the a-little-too-familiar framework, will captivate crime caper fans.
