Fitfully amusing and staffed with appealing actors, this series is a worthy successor to the earlier film and just the thing for fans of heists-gone-wrong comedies. Of course, every plot twist is telegraphed, and the series' setting and characters read like sanitized-for-cable vintage Ritchie (which, even in the director's heyday, always came off like lukewarm Tarantino), complete with "whoosh" sounds when the camera spins from one frenetic setup to another. It's clear that Albert is the "good guy" even if he does not-so-good things, Vic is the cautionary example, Charlie the goofball who's apt to throw a monkeywrench in each of Albert's larcenous schemes. Each speaks in meme-ready tough-guy catchphrases ("You won't get the jewels if you ain't got the tools!"), and are motivated by one thing: ill-gotten gains. Snatch is more or less a good time, even if it's not as artful as other crimes-gone-wrong series like Fargo or Breaking Bad, offering the reliable thrills of watching less-than-admirable people strain to succeed, or sometimes just to survive, in a difficult situation the viewer doesn't have to cope with.
