I thought you would all love to see this.

White Collar makes the NY TImes. That's awesome!

Thanks to Espionage for posting it.



TedonTV says he believes the cartoon is a fake. Can someone check that out?

It does look like a forgery. Words are coming out of the bubbles, the font style changes and I doubt they would use text spelling in a newspaper. The only original dialog looks to be "setting a wedding date ?"

I wondered if the cartoon was fake, because we looked on line all the way back through December and couldn't find it.

Oh, I thought you guys knew it was fake. I knew the minute I saw who posted it. That's why I put my chocolate comment there.

Don't. I only knew because of who posted it and the comments in the comic. It was the same thing this person has been saying all the time.

I thought everyone was just playing along...oh well.

Who was it so we'll be able to catch it next time? Oops, I see now. If he's done this before why can't he be kicked out of the forum? Seems dishonest to me.

That's because they're learning the proper rules and laws of Journalism. I took a year of Journalism in high school and I cringe over the way the larger newspapers do things now. I think they've forgotten everything they learned in school, if they learned anything at all or even went to school.

Fantastic article! I agree with everything the writer says. (I could have written it myself, IF I could write that well.;)) What a wonderfully bright college-student writer - go Tufts!

I especially liked this part (bolding is mine):

Having run successfully through two seasons, "White Collar" is now in its third year .... In this season's overarching plotline, an uneasy tension has formed between Caffrey and Burke, as the former has stolen a horde of priceless treasure and the latter is avidly, and secretly, searching for it. With each suspecting the other of treacherous actions, their covert conflict has the cast walking on thin ice at every turn. While entertaining in theory, the plotline of season three has added little to the show in terms of quality. What fans loved about the first two seasons was the sincere, albeit unorthodox, friendship between Caffrey and Burke. Pitting them against one another has laced this camaraderie with lies and deceit, thus taking away much of the trust and faith they have built over time and detracting from the overall experience of the show.

It isn't often that "White Collar" puts out a poor episode, but once or twice a season an episode will surface where the case at hand takes up all the time, leading to a lack of progression in the season's overall plot. Such episodes weigh down the flow of the series, but with Burke teasing Caffrey or Caffrey smooth−talking a criminal, even the duds always manage to entertain.

My sister called me on the way to work this morning to tell me that she had just seen an interview on"Good Morning America" with Anne Rice. She was gushing about White Collar and how much she would llike to cast Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay in a movie of her new book. Just finished watching the interview and it must have pulled in some new viewers for White Collar. Very flattering. I googled Good Morning America Anne Rice for the clip if anyone is interested.

I disagree with that. I think that precisely, the season 3 arc brought Neal and Peter's relationship to another level. In season 2 the friendship was granted and yet, that was not something they saw coming. They had not realized how close they had become until they felt hurt by the other's betrayal in season 3. So, ok, season 3 might have seemed less fun for some viewers, because Neal and Peter seemed less close, less genuinely found of each other. Looks like I'm in the minority here, but I really enjoy season 3, and the tension that seemed to be between Neal and Peter was because they realized that they loved each other but that was not compatible with their lives. That's when they realized they had to make a choice. Until season 3, Neal was only cooperating with the FBI because it was convenient while he was looking for Kate, then looking for revenge. At the beginning of season 3, he still was in the same optic, thinking he could have fun with the FBI while enjoying the treasure of a life time. But the season going, he realized that conning Peter sucked. His love for Peter was worth more than that treasure.
Now, it's Peter's turn. And the fact he hid Neal's involvement in the theft of the treasure already tells a lot of what he is willing to do. What he will say at the hearing, and what side he will choose (Neal or Kramer) will be another step.

All this to say that their relationship being so unlikely, so unorthodox, and so against nature, that they have to fight for it. It can't be taken for granted. So, I do appreciate the fact that the writers are willing to explore this. The relationship is the core of the show, so it seems important to me that all the aspects and consequence of it are explored. The questions in season 3, were "can it really work ?" " how wil it affect them ?" "how much are they willing to give it to make it work ?"
And despite what everyone keeps saying there were a lot of them working together in season 3, only just a few less "life or death" moments than the end of season 2.

Aragarna, you are so insightful. I agree 100% with this post. I've really enjoyed this season because of the decisions and tension in it. You can't have a really full story of this kind without tension. You're right, these two are so unusual in how they work together that it's the fun of them finding out what they really mean to each other. And you're right about this being Peter's decision to make now because Neal has made his.

You are so right. That's exactly how I felt about season three, too.
I think for some it is difficult to enjoy watching a show when they are worrying about the outcome, especially if like in WC the character's relationships make the show, though, that's why the first part of season three might not have been as enjoyable for them.
