Articles for White Collar Season 3

Here‘s your BuddyTV High Five: The five big moments and questions from tonight‘s episode of White Collar, "On Guard"High Five Highlights:5. What color are your eyes? Peter still suspects Neal of stealing the art that burned in the fire at the end of last season‘s episode. Distrust is in the air right from the beginning as Peter makes Neal take a lie detector test starting with the baseline question, one which every female viewer of White Collar knows the answer to: What color are Neal‘s eyes?4. We finally got our whale: We find out it was Moz who left the note for Neal after the fire last season, the one directing him to the U-boat treasure that Mozzie removed from the boat before it caught fire. Now, with the goods in their possession, Mozzie explains to Neal that this is the heist they‘ve been waiting for and convinces him to start planning their exit strategy. Neal is as hesitant, concerned about Peter, as Mozzie is determined. "We finally got our whale," Moz says.3. Work goes on: Despite their tension, Peter and Neal still need to work together. This week‘s case is an old buddy, or rather "colleague," of one of Neal‘s past aliases. This David Lawrence wants Neal‘s help in smuggling $60 million stolen from the Federal Reserve out of the country. Lawrence invites Neal to a fencing club ("Why can‘t you guys just ever meet for a beer?" asks Peter), and tells Neal about the job while the two swashbuckle around the room. Fortunately, although at Neal‘s disappointment, the only casualty in the match is Neal‘s tie.2. Elizabeth weighs in: Peter, as usual, expresses his distrust of Neal at home with Elizabeth who, as usual, comes to Neal‘s defense. The two decide they need to know if the Chrysler Building painting that survived the fire is the real thing and because Peter doesn‘t want to involve the Bureau, Elizabeth agrees to use her connections to check the painting. Neal and Mozzie figure this out, probably before even Peter or Elizabeth, or maybe even the writers of the show, did and agree that they have to switch the painting with a fake, meaning they now have to create a fake.1. Setting up for Season 3: Neal and Mozzie and their loot planned to flee when the FBI was taking down David Lawrence, but Lawrence spots Agent Jones. To appease Lawrence, and keep him from killing Jones, he gives David his getaway plane leaving him and Mozzie at least next week‘s episode if not the whole season to figure out their escape. Meanwhile Peter still doesn‘t Neal which should make for an interesting working relationship this season.  Read more »

It‘s Friday again, which means it‘s time to look back (again!) on another crazy week of television. We learned of a blast-from-the-past twist on Big Brother this year. We had a winner on The Voice. And weird things happened on the So You Think You Can Dance stage. Oh, and yes, you‘re right, there is a challenge coming -- this week‘s What Happened on TV? quiz! Read more »

I wish I could say that another week has finished, but it‘s been quite crazy here at BuddyTV HQ over the past few days -- thank you, Comic-Con -- that it‘s safe to say we‘re still in a bit of a hangover. And yet there are more things around the corner: Lady Gaga was on SYTYCD, Rachel continues her onslaught on Big Brother, and Ashley was a step closer to finding (really?) her true love on The Bachelorette. Read more »
Somehow, ratings shoot up when guys expose their barreled chests on screen. That‘s not the reason behind today‘s quiz choice though (although if that helps, why not). It‘s simply because the timing is right for the White Collar and Covert Affairs finales. And well, we know how big of a role six-packs play in those shows.  Read more »
Ask Tiffani Thiessen to describe tonight‘s White Collar in three words, and she‘ll offer this: "Riveting, surprising, and... hold on... shocking."White Collar‘s very own "Mrs. Suit" talked to reporters last week, before tonight‘s summer finale, where one item from the Nazi loot that Neal (involuntarily?) stole back in the second season gets flagged by Peter and the folks at the FBI. That should explain for Tiffani‘s three words up there.She also hints a bit about what to expect when the second half of White Collar‘s third season hits screens in January -- but apart from Joe Manganiello and an Elizabeth-centric episode, there‘s not much to go with, since she‘s quite tight-lipped about how tonight‘s episode will end. Oh well, we take what we can get.Oh, and she talked about Justin Bieber too.Read our recap of the White Collar summer finale, "Countdown" Read more »
Last week on White Collar we saw Neal and the gang hunt down a wanted fugitive who was smuggling Egyptian antiques, although it was clear not everyone wanted to help. Check out the top five moments from "On the Fence">>  Read more »
On tonight‘s summer finale of White Collar, we find out if Peter discovers that Neal and Moz took the stolen treasure including a rare Degas painting. Does Neal stay or does he go? Check out our interview with White Collar‘s Tiffani Thiessen Read more »
In the summer finale of White Collar we saw Neal and Mozzie come up with a tricky and intense plan to get the forged Degas into Richmond‘s apartment in order to stay steps ahead of the FBI. In one of the most intense plans of the season it required a bazooka, padded shoes, controlling an elevator and a parachute. The plan went off without a hitch with Kramer believing Neal‘s innocence in all this, Peter remains a bit skeptical. Check out all the highlights from "Countdown" here>>But the big twist happened with only a few minutes left, Peter‘s wife Elizabeth has gone missing, taken from one of Neal‘s enemies. What will happen next? We‘ll have to wait and see but if you remember, I told you to pay close attention tonight because BuddyTV is giving away a White Collar Prize Pack and it‘s time for you to learn all about the contest.  Read more »
The White Collar summer finale ended with a brilliant cliffhanger, even if it was telegraphed from the moment Mozzie ran into Keller. The villain who is after Neal‘s stolen treasure decided to force Burke to help him by kidnapping his wife, Elizabeth. The final, dizzying scene of Peter rushing home to find it torn apart and his wife missing (but presumably alive) was a perfect way to tease viewers and keep them excited until the show returns in the winter.  Read more »
Welcome to August, or as I‘d like to call it, that awkward moment between summer and fall. It‘s that time of the year when summer shows wrap up (in this week‘s case, So You Think You Can Dance and White Collar), not-so-summer shows start up (Bachelor Pad), and others just go on as usual (Big Brother and True Blood). In other words, it‘s been a busy week. But you knew I‘d say that, yes? Read more »
Dancing with the Stars has made a big fuss about the show‘s desires to cast celebrities who are slightly more relevant than reality wannabes and the actors of yesteryear. While it seems unlikely that the show can fully break free from such "stars," the newest crop of likely DWTS competitors definitely signals a move in a positive direction. Read more »
Summer is nearing its end, as are some of our favorite USA Networks shows. Shows like White Collar and Covert Affairs actually ended last week but other summer favorites like Suits, Burn Notice, Royal Pains and Necessary Roughness still have a few more weeks in them.

It‘s got all the must haves in nautical fashion, gadgets and accessories. The Prize (Pictured above):  Read more »
To paraphrase SpongeBob SquarePants, "another week, another seven nickels!" And sure, while last week saw a bunch of finales -- and this week, too -- there was still a lot going on our televisions. Life at the Big Brother house continued while werewolves killed each other on Teen Wolf. Twelve talents got another shot on America‘s Got Talent, while Emma (or Sutton, who?) got into some new trouble on The Lying Game. You get the idea. Read more »
If your summer has been dominated by USA shows, you‘re likely going into a bit of a mourning period right now. White Collar and Covert Affairs have already ended their summer runs, and Burn Notice, Suits and the rest will soon follow along into hiatus oblivion. But don‘t get too upset -- USA has already announced the dates for some of the shows to return in the fall. Covert Affairs, Burn Notice and Psych will all air new episodes in 2011. Read more »
As the Dancing with the Stars rumor mill slowly churns to its inevitable demise on Monday (when the season 13 cast will be officially announced), the names grow more interesting. Maybe they don‘t grow a lot more interesting, but it‘s not hard to increase interest when you started with Rob Kardashian. The far-more fascinating names to pop up most recently? Chaz Bono and Kim Richards. Read more »

When we last saw White Collar, Neal was forced to choose a side as Mozzie gave him an ultimatum to leave town with him (and the treasure) or stay in town and continue working with Peter. Neal opted to stay but was clever enough to devise a plan to replace the Degras with a forgery, ultimately dissolving any connection to Neal, Mozzie and the treasure. Unfortunately, his actions prompted a desperate Keller to kidnap Elizabeth. Read more »

This one was all about Sarah Walker.Thanks to Daniel Shaw‘s cryptic ending to last week‘s "Chuck vs. the Santa Suit," we knew that something was up. What we didn‘t know was just how much of Sarah‘s past would come to light in "Chuck vs. the Baby."It was a sentimental, occasionally even sappy episode. And here are the Top 5 moments! Read more »

Today the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the NAACP both announced their annual awards nominations. While there are several gay and African-American characters on TV, these awards usually highlight the lack of diversity by picking out such obscure nominees. The effect only emphasizes how few roles for African-Americans there really are on mainstream television.  Read more »
Ever since Darren Criss joined Glee in the first half of season 2 as Blaine Anderson, he‘s been a fan favorite and also, some might say, a heartthrob. But have you ever wanted to meet any of his family members? If so, that wish is about to come true. Read more »
Casting bits, anyone? Yeah, I thought so, too. Tonight, a gleek and a Stoolbend regular heads to politics, and skitters prepare to be told to be not told what they can‘t do. (I know. I can word that much better.) But first, some stability in a singing show: Read more »

Last week, we told you about the upcoming directorial debut of White Collar star Tim DeKay. After three seasons in front of the camera as Agent Peter Burke, DeKay steps behind it to direct an episode primarily set at Yankee Stadium in New York. The episode, which airs tomorrow night at 10pm on USA, is significant not only because of the unique setting, but also because it is the second-to-last of the show‘s third season. Read more »
Much to Tim DeKay‘s disappointment, they did not set up the batting cages at Yankee Stadium for him. A dusting of snow had fallen overnight, and the tarp was on the field. In truth, despite the wishes he expressed on twitter two days earlier, it was probably for the best that the 48-year-old star of the hit USA Network drama White Collar didn‘t get the chance to play Home Run Derby. If a batter makes the wrong kind of contact on a blustery February day, it can really sting.  Read more »
On Saturday, March 3, the Internet was treated to a wonderful live-stream of a staged reading for 8, a new play about the trial over Prop 8. The play, which consists primarily of transcripts from the trial where Prop 8, California‘s ban on gay marriage, was overturned, was a sublime blend of drama, comedy and politics.  Read more »
Last season on White Collar, Neal cut off his anklet (with Peter‘s approval) and fled with Mozzie to escape Agent Kramer, who wanted to arrest him and keep him in D.C. So Neal could work for him permanently. This cliffhanger ending was so unexpected that it spawned so many questions about Neal and Peter‘s future, as well as the direction of the series: Where is Neal headed and what are his plans now? What‘s going to happen to Peter‘s career after sacrificing the law to save Neal from his mentor? Do Neal and Sara still have a future together?  Read more »

Here‘s your BuddyTV High Five: The five big moments and questions from tonight‘s episode of White Collar, "Taking Account." Has Mozzie met his match?

Here‘s your BuddyTV High Five: The five big moments and questions from tonight‘s episode of White Collar, "Scott Free." Just when I was starting to miss Peyton Sawyer (the high school years, not the post-college years where she got all whiney and stuff), White Collar puts Hilarie Burton and Tiffani Amber Thiessen (also familiar with high school hour-long comdrams) together.  Read more »
