I love this show! I found it on dvd quite by accident and I'm glad I did. I find it very entertaining how they always manage to get the job done. Each episode stands alone and the ending leaves a smile on your face.

Great show - Average DVDs
Karsten Schramm | Herxheim | 07/23/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The show is great and I love to see it again. But what makes me give only 3 stars are two things: 1st: No subtitles, neither standard nor for the hearing impaired.
2nd: The order of the episodes. They seem to be totally random and the original airedates printed on the inside of the cover don't match with what was actually aired.
This is the order on the DVDs:
1.01 The Nigerian Job
1.02 The Homecoming Job
1.07 The Wedding Job
1.09 The Snow Job
1.08 The Mile High Job
1.04 The Miracle Job
1.03 The Two-Horse Job
1.05 The Bank Shot Job
1.06 The Stork Job
1.11 The Juror #6 Job
1.10 The 12-Step Job
1.12 The First David Job
1.13 The Second David Job
And while this is a procedural show and not a serial show, there's simply no reason to deviate from the production and airing in such a chaotic way."
Robin Hood meets Ocean's 11

"Love this show, too. I wasn't sure how it was supposed to work after the pilot but it really did. The stories are good, the dialogues witty, smart and to the point, the characters are intriguing and the mix of comedy, thriller & action is very well balanced.
Season 2 is being shot april-october so the first new episodes will air in summer, by the way.
The seasons are shorter than usual, somewhere between 12 and 16 episodes I believe, but the budget must be as big as for 22 episodes because each on feels like a small blockbuster. So for those of you who missed the show so far, get it ASAP!!!"

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This series features a modern day Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men -- or in this case, men and women -- pulling off cons, capers, and heists that redress wrongs, return ill-gotten gains to their rightful owners, and also pad the pockets of our heroes.
Though it's tempting to focus on the excellent cast, who do a uniformly stellar job with the scripts, the greatest strength of this show is in the writing. The stories are focused as much on revelation and development of the characters and their histories and interactions as on the clever and intriguing plots. The characters are given depth and dimension -- not to mention humor -- and the viewer finds as much to care about in each of them as in how the caper of the week will play out.
An outstanding opening season for this new series. Not to be missed."
