I'm gonna miss this show. Not high drama, but then again it wasn't supposed to be. What I would have loved to see going forward is if Leverage International hopped across the pond and got some help from Mickey Bricks and the rest of the Hustle crew. That would have been epic.

As I said elsewhere, it's not too terribly deep or plausible, but you love watching how the main characters interact, how they set up their cons against the Villain of the Week (with two particularly amusing examples being Wil Wheaton as the rival computer hacker Chaos and Giancarlo Esposito, Gus Fring from Breaking Bad), and how the various schemes all come together in the end. It's the cast and the humor that make a lot of these episodes work.

If you're expecting something deep or overly complicated, you'll want something else.

If you want something in the vein of your favorite heist/con movie meets Burn Notice and The A-Team (although the good guys almost always don't use guns), then you've got your junk food, man.

Personally, I loved the show, and I thought that Leverage got the best possible send-off.

While I'm not happy that it's canceled, I'm just beyond glad to see it get an appropriate, touching, and awesome ending instead of a WE JUST GOT CANCELED KTHNXBYE rushjob.

Indicative of cancellation?

Indicative of poor/uncaring series finale scheduling.


Preach it. The show got bounced around the network's schedule to the same degree as Futurama on Fox. No one will watch the damn thing if they don't know when it's on.


Pappas: Great show. Will be missed. I didn't realize it was the series finale until after I watched it... they've been promoting it on-air as the season finale.


Yeah, the network seemed caught offguard by their own decision. The commercial going into the show dubbed it a series finale, while the little tagline at the bottom of the screen referred to it as a season finale. Huh.


DSF6969: I was one of those who watched it purely for the good feeling I got seeing corrupt a$$holes getting what they deserved each week. This last episode ended the series well. You are left with the knowledge that the entire con-man world community was going to open up a huge can of schadenfreude on the bastards that caused the 2008 meltdown and got rich doing it.

That and Parker took her shirt off in the elevator again.


Like I said, it was a totally appropriate ending.

We won't get a spin-off, but I love the idea of Leverage International doing its thing and being headed up by Parker, Hardison, and Eliot.


Jim from Saint Paul: Stopped watching a season or two ago. I mean, I appreciate the fact that they never tweaked the show. You knew what you would get every week. Thing is, doing THAT generally means you will get bored with the show.


I loved the whole thing right through, but I'm super easily amused, so that too must be taken into account.


EdenLiesObscured: Bigger question: Sophie or Parker?


Yes.


Zombie DJ: Its like A Team. You just turn your brain off and watch.
I loved it.


Exactamundo.

Best junk food TV for the five years it was on.

I turn to Breaking Bad for filet mignon, and I turn to Leverage for a greasy hamburger.


davidphogan: I stumbled drunk through their set once. They were nice about it, had me sign some type of waver, and had me do it a few more times. I probably should have watched the show by now.


I think you'd dig it, actually.

Great show. Will be missed. I didn't realize it was the series finale until after I watched it... they've been promoting it on-air as the season finale.
