Leverage -- "The Order 23 Job" -- 7/29/09

Leverage

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


The LEVERAGE team takes over a floor of a hospital in order to stage the outbreak of a deadly virus. They must quarantine a convicted felon and get him to reveal the location of his stolen money…or die.



Looking forward to it as usual.

This, "Burn Notice", and my bluray player have been the only three reasons for owning a TV set this summer.

Forgot to mention that I read Gina Bellman (Sophie) is Pregnant and will disappear for several episodes later in the season. It will not be written into the show. Jeri Ryan will fill in for her.

Anyone watch on Wednesday?

I thought this was a hilarious episode. The show is definitely back to form.

The whole staging of the virus and outbreak on the hospital floor was great. I thought Hardison and Elliott had some great interactions with the U.S. Marshalls.

The actor who played the Bernie Madoff-type Ponzi Schemer was great. I got a huge kick out of him losing his mind during the "Outbreak."

The only thing that I thought wasn't neccessary was Elliott getting involved in the child abuse segment.

This is my number 2 summer show right behind Burn Notice. Great episode.

Yeah, that was a fun episode. Tons of good stuff. Hardison as a cop was great.

Even though I've been enjoying this season so far, I'm just not enjoying it as much as last season. Something just feels different.....I don't know what it is though.

Well, one key difference is they moved the production of the show to Portland, Oregon this season instead of LA. Supposedly the producers thought Portland worked better as a backdrop for faking East Coast cities.

We just love this show, provides a real pick-me-up, especially when you see that even went things go wrong, they are quick-thinking enough to improvise.

I had to LOL when the broker's nose started to bleed after Sophie's "death".
