I'm amazed there's not a thread for this show yet but are there any fans of the show Leverage who want to toss some stuff around about the show?
The show has convinced me of two things: 1. They should totally cast Timothy Hutton as Lex Luthor 2. They should totally cast Christian Kane as Wolverine
I am not Roranicus Pondicus.Yes! Definitely! That would be amazing.
Shut up, Reset! "What are we gonna do today, Bocaj?"
Feeble Turtle DuckSo....Adam Baldwin later this season. He's playing John Casey
I liked Season One. I haven't seen past that, though. I have a backlog of TV to watch.

@ metaphysician I said the EXACT same thing about Christian Kane to my aunt the other night. Plus, while Hugh Jackman has done an awesome job as Wolverine, Christian Kane is closer to the build of Wolverine I remember learning about and it made a lot of sense to me: Shorter, stockier and angry. Also, I've actually learned a few things from this show (how to better avoid pick pockets and a little bit about neurolinguistic programming) as well as finding it really enjoyable. The other thing I've learned is this: If you say something with enough authority, people aren't likely to question it.
Mystical Monkey MasterAny word on next season?
Well the most recent season just started. They're in Oregon this time and back to square one on resources and aliases after the debacle at the end of last season with Sterling. Hardison bought a restaurant and the group is working out of the space above it. The first two episodes were The (Very) Big Bird job and, The blue line job.
Mystical Monkey Master-started (Very) Big Bird Job on demand- Cary Elwes!!!
Oh and Parker and Hardison are officially an item now. The relationship is as weird ad you'd expect with those characters and how many seasons of build up now?
Mystical Monkey MasterThat was stated last season.
Wonder why Parker made a big deal out of telling Sophie that she and Hardison were officially together then at the start of The (Very) Big Bird Job. Oh well. Okay, question. Favorite character and why. Go.
Mystical Monkey MasterNot stated to the group but we were informed through last season. Three way tie between Parker, Eliot (or is it Elliot, whatever), and Hardison.
In Justice We Trust!Eliot, one L. In any case, I wonder what Nate is having Hardison work on as of now. I've feeling it's maybe the end of their crew there and intentions to adjust them to more legal work in the end. Also hoping Sterling makes a few appearances this season.
Feeble Turtle DuckHe's having Hardison setting up total clean slate ID's. Legal, safe, and as straight as a marines dress uniform. After all the crap with Dubenich and such he wants to have the team an OUT of their live. He's doing it in secret as they'd never go for it without incentive, and when the Big Bad of the season will make his move he'll reveal them. Adding to that: Sterling is HELPING Nate do it.As sort of a deal "they stop doing crime and we let them go." He is willing to go along with it because Nate's motivation is to prevent what happened to his Father to the Team and Sterling, after all, is doing it for a friend (and maybe just for the man who helped save his daughter) Edit: A thing I just realized. Look at Portland. A restaurant for Eliot to give into his cooking passion. A Theater for Sofie. It's giving them things to be rather than criminals...

I like that idea a lot actually. I liked it so much I brought it up to my family and they all really like the thought (if for no other reason than a good story must end) and this would signal the show winding down. It was posited that Nate might be doing this because now protecting his team, his new family, is more important than saving the world. The only hole I can see in this plan is Parker. Hardison and Nate have a lot of secondary skills. Eliot's got his cooking and Sophie, while she can't act when it's not an act, does know how to lead and weave a story as well as how people interact, so she might be better suited to the director's chair as you pointed out but all Parker's ever really known is theft. Now she could become a security consultant of course, breaking into places to help them figure out how to better protect their stuff but I don't know how she'd feel about that. I'm going to keep my eyes open for hints about this idea more this season.
Feeble Turtle DuckParker has Hardison. She's not doing the crime for a living but for the excitement (and money fetish). Hardison might replace that in her life. Extending that she has the whole Team. Parker was always alone, and now she has a family. Also...Angst for both of them if it gets out.

Tonight's episode seems to further support the theory you proposed. Parker is upset because she doesn't have a "Thing" like Eliot has cooking and Sophie has theatre. If she's working on getting an outside interest it may mean Nate is trying to get the team to go legit.
They should totally cast Christian Kane as WolverineHis growly voice reminds me of Batman, though. I could totally see him being Wolvie, however.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
