I refuse to be ill. There, take that body. I have neither the time nor the inclination to lay about feeling sorry for myself. I did enough of that before I got up this morning. I don't care what you think you're doing, I am not ill and I will not be overruled by a sodding temperature and sore throat.

That said -

I finally got around to watching some Leverage yesterday, after having seen hundreds of thousands of prompts for it in [ profile] comment_fic. I'm not bowled over by it though, I mean, the characters are quite cool, but it just feels like I'm watching Hustle with more explosions. And the plot twists aren't as well hidden as in Hustle, and they're not quite as professional, really... despite being, you know, professional. In hustle those people who might give away the game are never visible to the mark, the roles are kept up until the mark is completely out of sight and...

Yeah, I know, I'm complaining and they're not the same show... except for how they kind of are:

Criminals who help people out by taking money from evil corporations/people? Check

Barely acknowledge attraction between the main male character and one of the female characters? Check

Wildcard character? Check (Danny & Parker... and that new bloke in Hustle, whose name I can't remember)

Looks like it's going to fail until you find out through flashback that really they knew what they were doing all along? Check.

Token person from across the pond? Check (Napoleon Solo vs. Jane from Coupling)

All of that said, however, it's quite enjoyable, and well done, although they do blow things up a lot, and there are many guns. Mickey would not be impressed.

(PS. One of my housemates' boyfriend accidentally overdosed on superstrength paracetamol *facepalm* He's in hospital, but he's fine now... and we will mock him for this mercilessly because honestly - accidentally overdosing on paracetamol? How do you do that?)
