Toblerone?

I do like Leverage but they're airing the episodes obscenely out of order. No wonder it feels like certain themes - team interaction/Nate's issues/Nate-Sophie - are all over the place.

That said, loved the latest episode. They even spoke German. Hee. Gina Bellman and Chris Kane didn't do too bad a job of it, I certainly have heard worse accents. Also, apparently the kick-ass way to establish a German cover is planting a huge Toblerone? *g* I mean, it's not like we don't know Toblerone here but it's Swiss chocolate. It should have been a giant "Milka" to be German.

And Elliot's cover name "Hans van Schwesterkrank"? Sounds more like a crazy Dutch dude. :D

Like it too :) Maybe they thought of german part of Switzerland? :)
So they did an accent right? in one previous ep there was a killer from Kiyv i believe - the guy was so laughable :)))

Well, they wouldn't have fooled a real German but I've heard much worse. Of course there was this one short scene with the girl Hardison used to plant Sophia's face on it, the actual athlete who was supposed to be in Munich, her "German" was a bit too strange for an actual German. *g* But I give them credits for trying.

Oh, great to know! i usually don't have too much hope in americans to put the right accent (of only they have an actor from the country language of which they use) so it's nice to know that some of their native actors can do decent job :) So that girl - 'real athlete' sounded strange? Hee :) Of course for me it was just German cos i can't hear differences, you know :)

I went to stay with a friend on Wednesday. Between Wed and the end of Thurs I had watched 9 episodes of Leverage. I love it! :-) Is that the one with the ski resort scam? I love it! :-) Also got introduced to "The Big Bang Theory" ... that was pretty cool too!
