    Impossible Heists COURT TV Tuesdays @ 10 PM E/P

    "You don't just win the prize, you steal it!"



    It's like "Ocean's 11" meets "Survivor!" Two teams of skilled professionals are challenged to execute a complex and physically demanding heist while trying to elude the highest-tech security – and they have only a few hours to do it.

    Each show is a re-creation of a famous, audacious and sometimes unsolved heist. Over the course of five weeks, you'll get know each team member inside out. Who's the smartest, who's the funniest and which team can turn a Can't Win Situation into a Big Win Payoff?

    It's impossibly exciting.

    March 15th Premiere Episode
    $10 Million Art Heist

    Teams must traverse an enclosure filled with lions outside of the Stately Home, using only a grappling iron and chain link ladder. Then, after disabling the home’s alarm system, they must avoid laser beam security systems and motion sensors, all in order to steal a valuable painting which is protected by an invisible laser barrier.

    I just noticed the advertisement on Courtv today. It looks like a great change from the reality TV norm.

    I'm watching it now, but I only turned on the tv about 15 minutes ago, was flipping through channels and caught it. But it's kind of interesting the 15 minutes I've seen so far.

    The two teams are trying to break into a mansion to steal a painting.

    Hmm, ok, well... As I already said, I only caught the last part of the show, but what I saw was interesting.

    The red team and blue team competing against each other to pull off the heist that was based on a real life unsolved heist crime. The winning team is selected based not only on successful completion of the heist within the allotted time, but on how few clues or evidence they leave behind. I don't want to say anything about the winners or how they did, or clues/evidence yet, since I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but I'll say mission completion was interesting.

    I enjoy the format of the show. They show it from 2 perspectives -- there is an unseen show narrator who helps to keep us filled in on what's happening as it happens, as well as spliced in brief personal comments from team members applicable to what was currently happening. In addition, in true Court TV fashion, the viewer gets some insight and education in criminal mentality and tools/tricks of the trade.

    I really didn't get to see enough of the show to say much about the team members yet, although I can see that one of the women is pretty hung up on her own worth. But the show was definately interesting and different enough that I'll make an effort to catch it again.

    I saw it last night, and thought it was pretty good. Way too much bickering going on with the teams though, I thought they were both going to blow it with all the fighting.
