Your Reviews: Episode 5 (series 2)
"I've stopped trying to work out the plot - far better to be carried along with the story and enjoy the show. The Hustle team are like an extended family and involve you in the action with their magical comments and expressions to camera. Love them all including poor Eddie."
"I've stopped trying to work out the plot."
"I've come to expect nothing but sheer brilliance from Hustle, and I'm glad to say that this week's episode didn't disappoint. After working out the last couple of double bluffs in the previous episodes, I was more than happy to be confused by this week's story. Well done, fab job, but can we have more bare-foot Danny in a wet suit please."
"I had a slight panic attack when I thought Stacie was leaving the gang. I should have had more faith."
"Extremely impressed with this episode. I was steaming when I thought that Jake was going to win. But once again the grifters come out on top. Ash is pure perfection."
"Ash is pure perfection."
"The Hustle gang seem to be pursuing personal vendettas, kind of as favours for each other rather than because they want the money, at the moment. And what happened to not conning innocent people? Last episode, they stole from the jewellery shop (from a man who could have been very honest).
Also, Hustle has made us so suspicious that we think every scene is part of the con- such as when Stacie was falling in love with Jake again. Also, I don't think they should accept her back in the group so easily after her disloyalty. Or was it part of the whole thing?"

"It's getting too predictable. When Mickey lost the poker game you knew it would be OK and all would be taken care of. Something needs to go wrong."
"It's getting too predictable."
"This has got to be one of the best episodes this series. It had me on the edge of my seat from the first minute. I thought I knew how it was going to end but when Mickey lost the poker game I was shocked."
Andrew Collier, Wolverhampton
"Stacie is an inspiration to any woman, showing that she won't be manipulated and is better than any man, any day.
The cooperation of the group shows just how close they are and although it seems Ash doesn't do a lot, he pieces it all together, with Danny and Mickey playing the field and Albert starting the whole thing off. Without every one of them the con, and the show, would fall to bits. And I'll admit, the cactus, CD and mouldy cheese at the end were the perfect way of showing who's boss."
"I always love the way Ash has his little bit on the side and you don't know what it is until the end of the episode."
Danny Richardson, Widnes
"I watch this week in week out, and it's very predictable. What interests me is how the team manage to pull the con off. Admittedly last night's episode was a thrilling roller-coaster ride."
Don Rayford, Leicester
"I was quite disappointed with this episode. I could not feel anger towards Stacie's ex because he wasn't cruel enough, therefore I didn't feel the con was justified. The chances of him walking away with the money and not having a glance at it there and then (after he knew they had conned his last suitcase) are not that high, wouldn't you want to know if it's there?"
