No spoilers here, but I will say the last 90 seconds are a guaranteed surprise. You can catch the last episode now on hulu.

Even if you don’t regularly watch the show, this episode is a must for Matt Bomer fans (think skinny dipping and shirtless sculpting). If this episode leaves you all hot and bothered, don’t worry. “White Collar” will return this summer.

Did you see “White Collar” on Friday? If you didn’t,  don’t worry – you can watch it now on hulu.

“White Collar” is USA’s new Friday 10 o’clock show. Jailbird con artist Neal Caffrey (the delicious Matt Bomer) swings a deal with the FBI agent who nabbed him, Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) – Caffrey becomes an FBI consultant for a limited get-out-of-jail-free card.

“White Collar” is an enjoyable, if slightly predictable, dramedy in the tradition of “The Sting” and “Catch Me If You Can.” And so far – it’s a must-watch.

Are you in for a royal pain?

Royal Pains, the new USA doctor show, premiered last week. I was uber excited, because I love USA’s original shows especially Psych. Maybe it was my high hopes, but Royal Pains let me down.

It was predictable and at the same time unrealistic. I didn’t like Dr. Hank Lawson. His constant moping about his circumstances while continually turning down large offers of money did not impress me.

But that was the pilot, and I plan on watching again tonight to see if things improve. After all, even Psych’s first episode dragged a little. However, I fear the main problem with the show was not its newness, but the fact that it took itself too seriously.

The show only improved when Hank’s brother was on the scene. Evan is a liar, a social-climber, a womanizer and a schemer — everything Hank is not. But, Evan is a much more lovable character precisely because he knows how ridiculous and rotten he is. This could just be my general love for sidekicks talking, but if tonights episode is anything like the failure of last week, Evan is the only thing that could possibly tempt me to keep watching.

Well, him and the fact that Royal Pains comes on right after Burn Notice. Changing the channel takes so much effort.

Royal Pains is on USA Thursday nights at 10. You can also catch it online at USAnetwork.com.
