in which the beeb does me right yet again

omg you guys!!!! watch hustle!!! it is so fantastic. the writing, the stories, the acting! the music--is fab! it's kinda royksopp-y and very cool and funky with great use of all kinds of fun instruments like harpsichords and flutes. the style of the show is so hip and swingy. i love it! they do a sweet job of occasionally breaking the 4th wall but it's not overblown and always makes me feel part of the show rather than turning me off and reinstating my disbelief. the casting is impeccable. seriously, they are awesome to watch: marc warren (you know him as elton pope from doctor who's love and monsters), robert glenister (yes he's phillip's brother. boy, does talent run in that family), jamie murray (who was creepy lila on dexter) and robert vaughn (what can you say about robert vaughn? he's just the top). adrian lester who plays the inside man, mickey bricks, is fabulous as well and i'm so happy to have discovered him. this show!!! they do a great job of drawing you into the con and letting you see exactly what you need to see so the reveal is pretty much consistently surprising. even when you think you have it figured out, they getcha! and the show does a lovely job of showcasing london which i find immensely satisfying--i love seeing the gherkin reflecting the london sky. it is a terrific sight. anyway, run to your netflix queue or however you obtain your entertainment these days and get hustled! you won't regret a moment.

i searched for a good clip to show you how much you should be watching this show but many of the available vids are embedding disabled. this one is pretty nice though and essentially spoiler free. enjoy!!
