Leverage -- "The Two-Horse Job" -- 12/16/08

Leverage

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


Nate and his mates journey to Kentucky to help a heartbroken horse trainer whose racehorses were killed, apparently by a crooked broker upset with the underachieving animals.

That synopsis is for next weeks show. This week was about a race horse trainer. I thought it was a good ending to my tv viewing for Tuesday.

Thankfully the tone got nailed down in this one and it was great. If they all stay like this, it is going to be a fun 10 weeks.

I thought this one was a little more subdued than the first couple. Not quite the tension and excitement I had come to expect. I hope they amp it up in future episodes.

This is my new favorite show (which means that it will most certainly be a one season wonder like my previous favorites: Journeyman, Smith, Kidnapped, and L&O TBJ).

Having said that, I would rank this episode second best so far, with the pilot ranking as best, followed by this one, followed by the military episode from last week (though I liked the premise of last weeks episode, the ending took un-realistic to a whole new level).

The tv version of Ocean's Eleven got a season pass on my TiVo. Knock wood, it will survive the season.

The plot for this episode was a little confusing. But nevertheless, I still was entertained by it and enjoyed the humor. I could have done without the ex-girlfriend plot with Christian Kane's character.

Rick Hoffman has to be one of the most annoying character actors on television. He essentially plays the same person in every guest spot he's casted in.

I liked the episode although I felt the first two were a little stronger. The addition of "evil Nate" seems to be a good addition that will add more tension into the mix.
The show has been a pleasant surprise so far.

I think the weak link of this show is the blonde.*





*Although I would still like to have sexual intercourse with her.

Wasn't as good as the first two, but I'm enjoying the concept of the show. It's fun and it's nice to have non-traditional stereotypes, such as computer nerd as some geeky white guy or fat white girl.

really enjoying this show

This type of show is never going to be original with premise or plot so it comes down to character and chemistry and this show has it pretty spot on

i love Gina Bellman and Christian Kane, two of my fav supporting actors ever
