Leverage: "The Second David Job"

Got together with my friends John and Deshant at John's apartment to watch the season finale of Leverage. Three months after "The First David Job", the team reconnects as each of them is planning to rob Blackpoole's gallery, one of many cute coincidences stretching plausibility.

But TV viewers are always treated to the big picture. On my own, I would probably fall for ninety percent of the cons and misdirection on Leverage.

My favorite moments involved Nate and his ex-wife Maggie, her outing Eliot as part of the team and her conversation with Nate about their son's death. I hope she recurs in Season 2.

I'm glad to see Leverage's particular tone strike a chord with viewers. Here's to a good run.
