I failed to mention in my previous post that this series “Leverage” has proven, along with others, that you do not need sex and/or bad language to have a really good series that attracts enough of a fan base to win the People’s Choice Awards for favorite Cable TV Drama. The violence in this series is more humorous seeing that no one really got hurt, except one episode that I can remember. They were just knocked out and the character Elliot, when he got his hands on a gun would unload the bullets or cartridges and throw them down, giving the impression that you do not need a gun to take care of a problem. He did this over and over again, suggesting to me that the issue is something that those involved in the production of this show wanted to impress on the younger, more impressionable minds of their viewers. I could be wrong about intent, but I don’t think so. Way to go, anyway. The way all of these characters intentions went from selfish, me/me type of lifestyles to the Robin Hood, caring for those who could not take care of their problems, is a lesson we all need to take heed. Remembering that we should stay within the law, of course. This fairy tale type of approach is genius. Each viewer has atleast one character and their past that they can relate to. Especially in today’s society. Loss of a child, a life-long dream that hasn’t come true, struggles in the life of a veteran and the memories that do not go away and of course, the childlike adult that never had any stability in life and taught to steal and the nerd. Teens, as well as adults, can learn from these characters how to approach situations in their lives. I see so much good in this series. I do not understand how it could have been cancelled. I really believe it is more of a political issue inside the television industry rather than ratings. I read where one guy suggested starting a petition. I do not know if that works in TV. I would sign in a heartbeat.
