    Thats right – Leverage is awesome!

    There are 2 more episodes left in the current second season, and its already been renewed for a third. If anyone is into DVD commentary tracks, the DVD set for season 1 has tracks for every episode with lots of talk from former Blue Beetle writer John Rogers (no actors, since they were kinda busy making season 2).

    I hadn’t heard of Leverage before now, i will check the first few episodes out and see how i like it.

    Here i come with dorkdum.

    Vampire Diaries IS based on a series from back in the late 80’s early 90’s by L.J. Smith. (Also called, The Vampire Diaries)

    There is a huge stink about Twilight right now because she (L.J. Smith) also had another ongoing series during that time called Nightworld. In the second book of the series, a Vampire boy finds a human girl and falls in love with her, and he has a rival in a werewolf boy that also loves the girl. (Sound familiar, oh boy.) So there are cries of creative theft, etc etc etc.

    The only reason I know any of this is because I was a teenager in the 90s, so I read all of her books. (And I still am reading them. She has continued with the Vampire Diaries series since she got the TV program)

    As a note, I hate the TV show. Its so completely off-the-wall that it makes me sick.

    Mike got another good puppy dog? Which episode was that plot point introduced? I feel so lost.

  5. Cameron Rice Says:

    If there is ever another 24 hour podcast, Twilight should be the movie commentary.

  6. Dino Says:

    Dr Watson served the British Army in Afghanistan, the Sherlock Holmes story never reach WW I.
    Yes, he was also the action guy, the one with service revolver.

    @Paul I’m a convert for sure. I’m completely caught up at this point and my only nitpick is that I liked Gina Bellman a lot more than Jeri Ryan.

    @Henrik you so should, it’s fun.

    @Terri thanks for the schooling, I couldn’t make it past the 2nd or 3rd ep. I wanted to, but it was just too bad for me.

    @Noel Yes, it’s another pug…the Fawn variety I guess? Mike rescued him from a bad home.

    @Cameron I will probably take a nap during that one too.

    @Dino I’m schooled again…for some reason I was fixated on WWI as being a response point for the Holmes stuff. Not sure why.

    thanks for listening,
