Eliot's hair.

What.

WHAT.

(I know, I know, priorities. But what???)

So I was going to post about the creative blahs I've been in for the past 2 weeks.

Then Deb and I sat down today to get caught up on all the Season 4 episodes of Leverage we've missed, up to the season finale.

Forget that. I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH. THERE IS SO MUCH AWESOME JUST PACKED INTO THE SEASON FINALE I DO NOT HAVE THE WORDS TO EXPRESS MY LOVE FOR IT RIGHT NOW.

Also, without spoiling it: So before Eliot's first kill, he was Captain America and after that he became Batman?

Catching up on the Leverage episodes I missed while I was on vacation, and I must say this:

"The Inside Job" is now my absolute favorite episode. No, really. Hands down. "The Wedding Job" is still the funniest, "The Two Live Crew Job" is the crowd-pleaser, but damn this one was good.

Admittedly, I might reshuffle my favorites later, but that was my first thought after watching the episode.

Without major spoilers, a quick list of why it's awesome:
- A metric ton of background for Parker
- Major character development, too; I'm not sure Season 1 Parker would have so readily insisted on staying and doing the right thing. Agreed to it, yes, but she wouldn't have been the first to insist on it.
- The infamous Sailor Moon cosplay shot. I think I've seen that guy or his twin at Otakon.
- One of the most vile antagonists in a while. The scale of what she was planning to do was over-the-top, but... I can imagine a corporation trying something like it on a smaller scale and it creeps me out.
- Richard Chamberlain is fantastic and his guest shot was an incredibly significant role and not just a walk-on.
- Some guy named John Rogers did a pretty good job directing it.

I'm seriously considering just buying that one ep on iTunes.

Still cleaning and sorting through Greece photos. I just wanted to gush.

...Seriously, are the writers daring each other to set up each consecutive season finale so it's even HARDER to have a team next season? People, YOU GOT RENEWED, stop ripping my heart out! I know it was a given when Nate finally stopped lying to himself and quit being a dumbass, but still.

Aside from that, I was squeeing and thoroughly amused at evil Harry Dresden (sorry, Paul Blackthorne) but DAMN.

Still want to know what Tara owed Sophie for.

TNT is marathoning all the episodes next Tuesday, February 24, from 10 am to 11 pm.

Set your DVRs.

Looks like they're showing them in production order, not airing order, interestingly enough.
