CON! Hustle, BBC1, 9.00pm

Possibly it's just because they're made by the same production company, but Hustle is inexorably linked to Spooks in our minds. And as much as we enjoyed the most recent series of the latter, there were those who whispered those dreaded words: "series too far". We're not saying we agree, but it's worth asking ourselves: is Hustle heading down the same path?

Well, obviously we don't know because we haven't seen it yet, but there are major changes afoot - Adrian Lester has left, leaving a rather noticeable hole in the management side of the team, and he's not getting properly replaced until next week when Ashley "Asher D" Walters turns up. In the meantime, however, we're in LA, because where else would an incredibly slick and pretty show go?

This week's con involves flogging the Hollywood sign to a naive Texan film buff, but that's really just skin and bones, because we know that we predominately tune in for the gloss and the sass and that general "sigh, I wish I were a big glamorous confidence trickster" feeling. It's quite similar to the "sigh, I wish I were a Japanese office worker who discovers he can control time" and "sigh, I wish I were tall and skinny and kind of dumb and still in the running towards becoming America's next top model". We should probably stop taking quite so many of our life goals from TV...

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
