So has anybody been keeping up with this series? I've just finished the season finale.  It's a really neat little series and I'm glad it's been doing well.  I thought Nate's slide in alcoholism was a little out of the blue, but I guess they wanted to bring in a little more drama to what's essentially a very light show.

I've been keeping up with it, but I'm a few episodes behind on the DVR.  Last one I saw was the rehab one.  I'll probably pick it up on DVD if it comes out since I've enjoyed it.

Watched every episode and I'm looking forward to the first of the marathons that will no doubt happen in about a month :)

Loved the end, love Parker and Hardison, individually and their little thing that one of them things is going on.

And in general just great performances all round.

What "slide in alcoholism"? You mean when he built that huge "Wine-ter Slide Park" in his backyard and spent all day on the "Woozy Boozy" attraction? Yeah, that did seem a bit sudden.

OK long time no post.

Remember this:

Yeah me too, still haven't seen an episode I've not liked.

It still holds true. I've loved all four episodes of the new season so far, and the fourth was a standout for this moment:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/AvbLDNVpeAI&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;fs=1?color1=0x5d1719&amp;amp;color2=0xcd311b&amp;amp;border=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/AvbLDNVpeAI&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;fs=1?color1=0x5d1719&amp;amp;color2=0xcd311b&amp;amp;border=1</a>

Which, even cooler, actually is Aldis Hodge playing there. :)

As much as I'm enjoying the 2 hr blocks... I hope they slow it down. I don't want them to burn off the whole season in a month!

They will, I think I read that they only doubled up the third and fourth because of July 4th.

I'm just so impressed at how good it still is. I really need to get the DVDs :)

I want it on Blu-Ray darnit!  (And season 1 of Burn Notice on BD.)

Kind of annoying when shows broadcast in HD, but they don't sell the seasons on BD.

I just caught up with season one on Netflix and started season two tonight.  Very fun show with an enjoyable cast.  It's kind of a lighter, more comic version of Hustle.  In Hustle the cons make a bit more sense and are probably a little better thought out, but I find Leverage to be more fun.

I still really like this show, but I think the formula was working a little better in the first season. It's a matter of a 9.5 (this season) instead of a 9.8 (first season) though, so still a very well made and fun show.

It's a good show. Great actors although they rely too much on the deus-ex hacker abilities of the black dude. I prefer the BBC series Hustle but ultimately I'm a sucker for anything involving con men.

Leverage is back!  Decent start to the season and "The Office" spoof trailer for next weeks episode was pretty hilarious.

Season finale with Wil Wheaton was pretty damn good.
