Hustle - Complete Season OneThe blue collar guys take on sinning on The WB while on NBC they are still trying to see if America’s Got Talent. Killer Whirlpools are investigated by the MythBusters on Discovery Channel while the gang in Britain cons a bad newspaperman in Hustle over on AMC. Still don’t understand why a British TV show is on the American Movie Classics channel. It is neither American nor a movie and since it is new that makes it hard to be one of the classics. It fails on all three fronts. It ranks right up there with ECW professional wrestling on the Sci Fi Channel. At least it meets half the criteria, as it is fiction just not of the science variety. What other shows don’t make since on the channel they are being shown?
