    "The Hot Potato Job" was another episode that started with a really clever premise, something that was fresh and new and then it got ruined quickly when the ploy that the Leverage team was a part of became too corporate. It was almost like they decided to try and be too smart and witty with their take on the setup of a company and the interoffice politics, but maybe they should leave that stuff to shows like The Office. Interesting premise, a good case and a good anti-big business story behind it, but yet another boring episode of Leverage I am sorry to say.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Trivia: When Verd Agra checks Sophie's background as Miranda Kaley, the reason for visit says: Security indulges consultant within the conservative diagonal. A nut writes. The temple decays with the cylinder. Why can't clone attend consultant. When can a cheating shame prosecute beneath the motto. Why does the tongue offset security. Security returns under consultant. A desired calculus seeds a recipient. Consultant sails security. Consultant standardizes the imperative panel.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Nate: Burn room?
      Hardison: It's usually a vault within a vault. The walls are lined with thermite. All he has to do is press a button and flame on. All his dirty secrets burn away.
      Parker: Everything burns? I want one.

    • Parker: So the diamond is in the potato?
      Hardison: There is no diamond. Verd Agra. Super tuber. Haven't you been listening?
      Parker: Not really.
