To me, White Collar is like those hats star Matthew Bomer wears as con artist/art thief Neal Caffrey. They're cute and stylish, but ultimately unnecessary. Still, every now and then you want to put one on and gad about town, so I expect that at some point this season I will tune into the show and revel in the cool.
Apparently, VH1 did not invent the idea of having comedians talk about things we care about in order to turn it into entertainment. I Love the '80s was a BBC series across the pond before VH1 turned it into a franchise, with repeated seasons of 1980s love-ins, a few 1970s editions, one series about the new millennium, one about toys, and one about the holidays. All relied on nostalgia, with possibly the exception of the millennium edition, depending on quickly your nostalgia sets in. But now their latest show tackles current pop culture events, in list format. Can it survive without the nostalgia?
