Leverage is the most amazing show.

I really should be doing things other than watching this show, but...

I do not understand how I missed this show when it was on. Like I said before, I remember watching the TNT ads for it when it first started, but the ads showed a very different show than I'm watching. This show is so incredible.

The first season was shaky, I admit. Like they didn't know what they wanted to do. Maybe that's why the ads were iffy? Maybe they were selling one thing but then the show evolved into something else. I don't know.

But! Okay, some of my favorite elements in fiction? They converge in this series like a perfect storm.

(I went to look them up on tvtropes in order to give you some links in this post, and then I saw that Leverage is so damned tropetastic that they warrant 5 pages of alphabetical listings of tropes!)

but yeah, biggest ones are TEAM and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT and FOUND FAMILY and AGE OF THE GEEK, BABY!

(um, not to mention the plot stuff where they're a group of (mostly) former bad guys who pull off impossible cons to help folks who've been wronged by the REAL bad guys)

I just started season 5 and I love this show SO MUCH.
