I’ve just been thinking today about how amazing a show Leverage is. I mean you have a drunk-ex-insurance guy who is a genius who’s whole goal in life is to help people (ie. while simultaneously being a control hungry bastard), a woman who could con herself into being queen of the universe while drunk, a dangerous ex-military guy who can filet a steak or punch you unconscious or be trusted with your firstborn because he’s phenomenal with kids, a hacker with skills like nobody’s business and charisma like woah, and finally the best thief in the entire world who loves cereal more than life. I just…LEVERAGE. I’ve seen it beginning to end like 3 times over and it’ll never be enough.
I feel like it’s really easy to lean towards categorising Sophie as the mom friend but like, no. no Sophie is the Cool aunt who’s always slightly tipsy and whisks you away for impromptu shopping trips and lets you drink but Eliot, Eliot is the mom friend.
honestly? that bit in the maltese falcon job where nate literally runs up 30 flights of stairs pushing the up elevator button at each floor, and the subsequent reaction shots of an increasingly disgruntled sterling, is probably the best scene in television history
