Catch It If You Can
23 August 2006 | by El Gato-4See all my reviews

THIEF took its time revealing the full outline of its plot, but proved to have quite a few surprises in store. Andre Braugher confirmed he's still one of the best actors on TV and the rest of the cast -- with an annoying youthful exception -- is excellent.

Many critics put THIEF in the same cliffhanger-of-the-week category as "24", but unlike that potboiler, the climaxes here were genuine and continued to advance the plot.

By the end of its short season THIEF had generated enough tension to light up a major city. Whether or not those threads will ever be resolved is anyone's guess, but if you missed the original run, catch THIEF if you can.
