Lone Star


       This may end up being my new favorite show. The pilot and the second episode seem to be setting up a very good series. The show is about one named Robert Allen, he is a con artist. His father raised him from a young age to be a con artist, and the two have paired together to be extremely successful. They plan a long-term scam which involves Robert (Bob) getting married to the daughter of an aging oil tycoon. Bob falls in love with her, and can’t go through with the con, and decides to try to be legit for the first time in his life. His father agrees to work with him initially, but soon decides to use the spot in the company that Bob got him to sabotage the company.

      Did I mention that Robert Allen has another love affair? This is where things get really interesting. He is constantly juggling two lives, both of them originally involving a scam. But this love affair wasn’t planned, and he didn’t cover his basis. This wife (yes he has two wives) has been snooping into his past, and her sister isn’t buying any of what Bob is selling.

     There are already many different sub plots going on, and I don’t want this post to be too long, so I’m going to end it here. This show is really shaping up to be a thriller, much like Dexter, except Robert Allen is the complete opposite (in terms of personality and motive) than Dex.

If the writers played their cards right on this one, I can’t see it not being a hit.
