TV's fascination with the idea of Con-Men
I’ve noticed that a few different shows that I’ve watched feature con-men (White Collar’s Neal Caffrey and Suits’s Mike Ross). I think an interesting article might be to explore this fascination with con-men and how TV glorifies this illegal act. Throughout the course of both Suits and White Collar we grow to love and relate to both Neal and Mike even though in the real world these are criminals. What does it say about us, our beliefs and society that we glorify these criminals?
