But the dialogue is so very crazy rapid fire, with terribly poor speech elocution, that understand-ability is stressful and closed captions are very helpful unless you have really fast and sharp hearing. After a while all the episodes are too similar, too totally unbelievable and crazy and unreal, and it gets repetitive and tiresome.
The contributors are a chatty group so make sure that you’ve watched the episode so many times that you know what’s going on without hearing. And they appear to have made a conscious decision to not “watch” the show rather to comment. So they aren’t watching the show with you they are talking about what went on behind the scenes. They talk about some of the infamous Hardison scenes and Aldis’s improvational skills which they really love and trust. They talk about Pardison and conscious decisions that were made to be physically stand next to one another to show their growing relationship. That talk about Kane humor and the humorous actions and expressions that he brings to Eliot that I had never really thought about. They discuss sibling relationships (Eliot, Parker, Hardison) the father/son dynamic between Nate and Hardison, and the “equals” relationship between Eliot and Sophie/Nate. These are things that you saw as a fan but it’s good to hear it discussed.
I’m only on season two but it is the conspiracy episode where the reporter has ruined a guy’s career so the team sets out to discredit the reporter. In the episode, Parker becomes curious about conspiracies and begins to ask Eliot about different conspiracies. Not sure who it was but someone mentioned that he sent a note to a big wig and asked, “How is Eliot responding to Parker.” The reply came back, “Like a big brother effing with his baby sister.” It’s something that we saw but it was nice to hear that response.
As indicated, I’m only on season 2 but I’m so pleased with my decision to purchase this. I purchased seasons 1 - 3 together because the 5 season bundle wasn’t offered. But I’m going to have to get season’s 4 and 5 soon because I am watching a season a weekend. It’s a shame that TNT cancelled this show because it really was a fun show to watch.
This gave Aldis Hodge the opportunity to shine in "The Ice Man Job," because the team "needed a grifter," and with Sophie absent, Hardison stepped in. Of course, he's not a grifter by nature, so his masquerade leads to his being captured by the Russian mob. The series creators also take full advantage of this, using Christian Kane's "Eliot" character to rib Hardison over this in a later episode. The cast really excels at the "sibling rivalry" discord...they can come together to pull off a "job," but they can also squabble like kids who have had too much sugar. The series creators wisely keep this in check and never go overboard with it. In small doses, it's fun. Overdone and "Leverage" would become "Three's Company" in a heartbeat.
Beth Riesgraf as "Parker" shines here, especially in the "Ice Man Job" episode ("No stabbing, Parker!"). She's smart enough to pull off major heists but is conflicted in every way imaginable when it comes to dealing with others on a "normal" basis...case in point the first Season 2 episode, where Hutton wakes up to find her eating cereal in a nun's outfit. She's gorgeous and crazy and brings an ongoing sense of oddball charm to what is already a somewhat oddball cast and concept.
Timothy Hutton definitely sinks his teeth into the multiple characters he plays...some ridiculously eccentric (like Dr. Melcher and his "Melcher Method"). Others are more "normal," but the undercurrent of the Ford character is that you have a recovering alcoholic whose life is still a mess in many ways (including the "is this a relationship" relationship with Sophie). He manages to pull together a team of criminals to do one Robin Hood good deed after the other, and there are times when the Ford character...even in moments of success...seems empty inside. He will occasionally order a drink (his condo, the "team clubhouse," sits over a bar) and walk away without taking a sip. Sherlock Holmes had cocaine, Nathan Ford has alcohol. Every genius has his or her demons.
This series is head and shoulders above the normal "cable TV drama" in every way. Killer cast, well-written eposides, and actors who seem to have a great deal of fun. Highly recommended.
