Leverage’s fourth season – The good, the bad and the promising
Only one episode left until ‘Leverage’s’ fourth season finale. The viewers on the CliqueClack team weigh in on how they think it’s going and what next week might have in store for us.
I’ve really been enjoying this second half of Leverage‘s fourth season. “The Office Job” was so well-played on all fronts that I can’t believe I didn’t write about it. Then, the “Girls’ Night Out Job” followed by the “Boys’ Night Out Job” were tons of fun. The writers are trying some different things this season, and for me, it’s working to breathe some new life into ths series that was near-perfect in season one and just hasn’t been able to live up to that thus far.
After the penultimate episode ending on such an exciting note this past Sunday (Bringing us back to the pilot episode? Brilliant!), I figured it was time for the CliqueClack team to dig into Leverage, for better or for worse.
Let me ask a question: Was the second season as bad as I remember it being, or was it just bad in comparison to the awesomeness of the first season?
Regardless of the answer, the show has never lived up to the promise it showed in the first season. Things have definitely gotten better, but I’m still left wanting. Sure, they are playing the Parker/Hardison relationship nearly perfectly, but I couldn’t be more bored with the idea of Nate and Sophie if I tried. And what about Eliot? From a character development perspective, they’ve given Christian Kane almost nothing to work with in four season.
Despite these complaints, though, I still enjoy the show quite a bit. I just remember how good the first season was, and go all sad face.
I’m in the same boat as you, because I’m not sure of the answer. When I go to epguides and look back at the season two episodes, I remember some of them fondly. So does that mean season three was the real clunker?
