I’m not sure why Tumblr isn’t all over White Collar. Seriously, it’s an incredible show with wit, great humor, clever plots, and AMAZING character development. Not to mention:
Gay actor Matt Bomer is the lead
Neal Caffrey: super suave con-man art-thief with a heart of gold and an intense love of all things artistic (he’s an adorable puppy dog cinnamon roll)
Diana Barrigan: daughter of a diplomat and a badass lesbian woman of color who isn’t sexualized
Clinton Jones: A black Harvard-educated Navy man turned FBI agent who is cool as hell
June: super awesome black woman who is so sweet but also crafty and on occasion helps the guys with cons
Mozzie: conspiracy theorist comic relief with a penchant for philosophic quotes and completely random eccentricities - who has a REALLY SAD BACKSTORY WHY?!
Peter and El: They have the BEST marriage ever. Both are supportive, encouraging, and SO TRUSTING. Seriously, Peter constantly gets thrown into compromising positions where he has to flirt with other women, and each time they set it up like El think he’s having an affair but she just laughs at him because he sucks at flirting - Sorry I just really love the Burkes
Satchmo the dog saves the day more than once
It’s funny, light-hearted, with great writing and acting, and touches on deep themes with grace. This show is INCREDIBLE and went out with a hell of a bang. It’s all on Netflix and you should totally go watch it right now.
The topics that the first season of Eyewitness introduced are important to talk about & it is crucial that they are represented on television for people to see. These topics include a realistic teen gay relationship, mental illnesses and disorders such as PTSD & thoughts of and attempts at suicide, substance abuse, the foster care system, & independent and powerful women. The introduction of these subjects was wonderful, but Eyewitness is not done yet. The potential this series has to represent these groups of people and more is great. Networks should open their eyes to the possibilities Eyewitness has with its stellar cast.
