Leverage Fanvid: Rundown (OT3)

I know there are several folks on my flist who aren't caught up to the most recent Leverage episodes. What follows is a brief discussion of eps 5x09 and 5x10, but I'm intentionally keeping my comments general and unspoilery. No plot points are revealed below, so you should be safe. (Just don't watch the video, because that will spoil the crap out of you.)

There's been some speculation that one or both of the Leverage summer finale episodes could be a back-door pilot for a spin-off or possible series reboot. Not only am I intrigued by this idea, but the more I think about it, the more sense it starts to make. The tone of both episodes was a deviation from the norm, each in a different way. The Rundown Job had higher stakes, a faster pace, more action, and a darker tone than your average Leverage episode. Meanwhile, the Nate and Sophie we got in The Frame-Up Job were happy, lighthearted, and fun in a bantery Nick and Nora Charles way that was a refreshing change from their usual dynamic. And both episodes boasted an obviously larger budget and higher than usual production values. Dean Devlin said The Rundown Job had more CGI effects than any previous episode, and it definitely showed. Plus, the more I think about Parker's super-hot catsuit and glammed up look (nail polish!), the more it makes me wonder. Combined with the fact that TNT is taking their sweet time announcing whether or not we're getting a season six, and ... well.

Anyway, I couldn't let go of the idea, and I loved The Rundown Job so much--SO MUCH--that I decided to make a fake trailer for a spin-off based on it. So here ya go!

WARNING: Video contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Leverage ep 5x09. Obvs.



(The song is "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons, because there is no such thing as an Imagine Dragons song that's not perfect for Leverage.)

FUCKING AWESOME! *fist pump*

Brilliant from start to finish - we need to get this to Rogers et al in the event this is the way they're thinking.

Awww, thanks hon! *smoosh* I'm happy you liked it!

I'm sorta considering tweeting it at Rogers et al the next time he's online. Don't know if I'll work up the courage, though.

You don't, I will. Seriously. This is better than anything I've seen him retweeting to date.

Thanks! A show that's all OTC all the time would definitely be happy-making.

I WOULD WATCH THE HELL OUT OF THIS SHOW!!! It's not like I haven't already watched the hell out of the ep. ;)

And I love, love, LOVE this vid! I see I'm gonna have to get some Imagine Dragons on my phone.

I love this video and I would watch the heck out of this spin-off. The Nate/Sophie spin-off would be cute, but I don't think I would love it like the OT3.
