DRAMA

Ray Liotta, lips pressed together so tight you almost expect him to sound like a Tupperware lid when he opens them, plays a criminal who juggles family life with a stressful secret career leading a band of super-thieves. Like their boss, they all look grimly cold-blooded but very stylish in clothes as dark as the night. The pyrotechnics involved in the opening heist are good, and the cast is a dream. You have Simon Baker and Jonny Lee Miller in the gang, Shohreh Aghdashloo as the purring mystery woman who gives Liotta his orders and, best of all, Virginia Madsen as his wife: It quickly turns out she has some secrets of her own. If the show lets their relationship develop, she and Liotta could make a very interesting couple.
