Hustle 5.05 Series 5 Episode 5 of 6 (2009)

While finishing a con as a team of lawyers, the gang are approached by the leader of a community youth centre to, in their ‘legal’ capacity, represent him in his fight to stop the building being demolished. While they don’t have the legal know-how, Mickey smells some dodgy dealing and senses a chance to exercise some justice outside the law.


I wonder how many community youth centres under threat there are because I am sure this kind of thing is always happening in TV dramas. Though it’s probably just me. Anyway, the episode itself is fine, some of the details are rather enjoyable and it’s polished, once more, to a fine sheen but the attempt at generating friction between Mickey, Sean and Emma is clumsy. It needed to start two episodes ago in order to make the events in this episode more convincing and deliver a more satisfying pay-off.

This Hustle episode contains bad language and sensuality.
