My new favorite show

I gotta admit to being very impressed with the USA network--they have come up with some quite imaginative, very entertaining new shows, several of which are high on my list of favorites. Currently being DVR'd at my house...

Psych (an uber-observant regular guy who plays at being psychic to assist on police investigations)

Burn Notice (a burned spy, trying to figure out who burned him, doing the sort of good deeds that require his particular skill set)

In Plain Sight (the day to day of two U.S. Marshalls who work for the Witness Protection Program)

And now...

White Collar...a by-the-book FBI agent offers a charming and worldly con artist a way out of prison--assist in "catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom" (that's from the website).

I have been LOVING this one! I like the premise and all the secondary characters, but I think the two main characters play very well off each other, and I am absolutely mesmerized by the dashing ex-con, played by Matt Bomer. I have, in fact, added a photo to my 'Writing Inspiration' folder. So many good qualities...

Give this show (or any of these USA gems) a try, and let me know what you think!

Great minds think alike. I'm also a fan of the USA network. The new season of Burn Notice starts soon and I'm chomping at the bit. As for White Collar...I can't wait to find out what happens next. I'm sure nothing is what is seems.

One final note: As a die hard Monk fan, I was sad to see the series end. I guess Psych will be a filler (not a bad show either).

I'm a huge fan of cable options, period. They are content with a smaller fan base and don't cancel good shows on a whim like network tv--still bitter about Pushing Daisies, yes.

The cancellation of Pushing Daisies was a tragedy--I agree!
