    Not that kind of book, I'm afraid . . . .

    Buffy novels ran for quite a while after the series ended, but not anymore.

    I'm hoping Geoff Thorne drops in to give us his take. He's a regular poster on TrekBBS and a writer on the show.

    I missed this show probably more than I watched it, but I always enjoyed it when I did see it. I think I'll go back and watch it all from the start.

    True enough. Luckily, they used some really fine character actors for the most part.

    Not a graphic novel? What was the title?

    It takes a thief.

    Although considering they took a inveterate criminal and put a leash on him, making Bob Wagner rob the trick evil foreign powers out of their precious for Uncle Sam... It kinda backs up your supposition.

    Very similar to White Collar many have remarked.

    The only silver lining is that what is now the series finale was written as such just incase it wasn't renewed.

    A very skinny little prose novel from Moonstone, titled The Lost World. It's about 175 pages.

    So bummed Leverage is ending. The last couple of years have had some boring lows and some off the charts awesome highs.

    Elliott, Parker and Hardison equally.

    I suppose it's too much to hope they might reunite for a movie somewhere down the line...

    I really liked them all, and the moments of interplay that sounded improvised.

    Elliot: "Dammt, Hardison!"
    Hardison: "Why don't you hit someone?!"
    Elliot: "Oh, I'm gonna hit someone!"

    Don't forget. The series finale is on tonight, Christmas or no Christmas.

    Sorry, Scrooge, Kris Kringle, Grinch, and George Bailey, I'm watching LEVERAGE tonight.

    I will definitely miss the Good Ole Boys!

    I'm watching Doctor Who and recording K9 right now, but TNT is showing the Leverage finale several times and I'll be recording it overnight.

    Remind me, was the black book part of continuity or did Devlin just make it up last week?

    Just watched the finale. One of their cleverest eps, a great call back to the very first ep, and a great note to go out on.

    That was a pretty terrific finale. I could nitpick a couple of things (like the inconsistency over whether Parker should've been on the surveillance video of the van escape), but it was a very clever set of twists and misdirects.

    It was also a terrific series finale, and actually makes me kind of glad the show wasn't renewed, because it would be a shame to have to undo this resolution and reset everything to the previous status quo. It would be interesting to follow up on the new one in some form, though.
