Hustle 6.05 Series 6: Episode 5 of 6 (2010)

After being scammed by an internet retailer (a dodgy phone) a glum Mickey realises that he fallen prey to the grifter’s curse: a scammer who gets scammed loses his mojo. With Mickey’s luck and confidence shot, it’s up to the rest of the team to try and win them back by targeting the businessman who scammed Mickey.


It’s a lot more fun than it should be but they are so mean to Eddie. Odious baddie of the week (dreaming of wowing the Dragon’s on Dragon’s Den in a cute sequence though it was a shame they couldn’t get Richard Branson to appear as himself later) is delightfully boo-hiss-worthy and slimy while the invention he invests in is a hoot.
