It has an [[ThePond across the pond]] [[TransAtlanticEquivalent counterpart]] in ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', though save for general concept and at least one prominent guest star appearing on both shows, the two shows are unrelated.

** Almost everyone they con is white. They con an Indian guy, but then realize that he's not that bad and that they've put his entire factory out of work, so they give him money from another con. In another episode, they're conning an African dictator (and obvious Robert Mugabe [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed parallel]]) but then [[spoiler: it turns out that he was Mickey in disguise, and they're actually conning somebody else]]. Another episode has them conning an Indian sweatshop owner, but [[spoiler: he completely reforms himself, so they can't finish the con]].

* StolenByStayingStill: In "New Recruits", Mickey and the crew pull a con where they convince a pair of marks that the painting they declared to be 'unstealable' has just been stolen. The crew do this by erecting a fake wall directly in front of the wall where the painting is hanging.

* IgnoredConfession: In "The Fall of Railton FC", Ash temporarily CannotTellALie as the result of a head injury. When TheMark asks him if there is anything else he should know, Ash tells him that the entire deal is a con and they are planning to steal his money. He then bursts out laughing, turning it into a SarcasticConfession that TheMark cheerily ignores.

A British {{dramedy}} show (2004-2012) centered around a group of con artists who specialize in the LongCon and [[EvenEvilHasStandards only con]] those who deserve it. [[SpiritualSuccessor Highly inspired]] by ''Film/TheSting''--it's mentioned more than once and almost every con that appeared in the film ends up being played in ''Hustle'' at some point.

* SerialEscalation: In Season 1, £500k is a significant sum of money, worthy of a season-ending 'big con'. By the time Seasons 6-7 come around, half a million is just an average score from a standard episode. And then of course, in the series finale in Season 8 it gets turned [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]] as the team go for a truly monstrous score - £10 million, enough to walk away for good.
