Sure it was flawed but far more entertaining than given credit for.
Heist is just as exciting as Leverage or White Collar. Maybe it wasn't the right time for a show like this or it was overkill next to "Thief" and "Smith". Whatever the reason it still isn't a good excuse to cancel a show after only two episodes. This is something I don't understand and never will understand. For what it is worth "Heist" was pretty good and it would have become a great show if given the chance. It had all the same ingredients as similar themed shows. Of course it had flaws. Michelle Hicks as the cop was one of the biggest flaws. Her role could have given some great tension between her and Mickey (Dougray Scott). It wasn't her acting that made it bad. For some reason the writers forgot or ignore to do something with her character. Not one scene showed her doing something brilliant. Enter Ted Danson as Hicks' replacement and you see the difference. It only took him one episode to catch on. Heist deserved better!
