Sometimes bad guys make the best good guys.

I've been neglecting the blog for a while and I'm sorry. When I started this blog last year I was one of the many unfortunate ones who were laid off from work and to counter the depressing task of job hunting I watched a lot of TV and spotted a lot of IKEA. I am thankful to say that a couple of months ago I became gainfully employed. However, the blog has suffered for it. As you can imagine, this has severely cut back on the time I can dedicate to watching shows and writing posts but I am determined not to give up the blog all together.

One of the last intensive viewing sessions I had before rejoining the grind was the show Leverage. I fell in love with the show and plowed through 3.5 seasons in only a couple weeks. To countdown the return of the back half of season 4 on November 27th I begin with the spotting in season 1 (2008).

The team moved into their swank offices in episode 2. The flash conference room had a GLIMNT ceiling light (discontinued) .

There are also EMU containers in one of the outer offices. Here is a clean shot from episode 12.

In episode 10 the team goes undercover in a rehab hospital. Throughout the hospital are various IKEA lamps. KNAPPA KLOVER pendant lamp (discontinued) in the group room.

KNAPPA pendant lamp and ORGEL VRETEN floor lamps in the hall way.

 TULPAN floor lamp (discontinued) also in one of the hallways.


A LUNS writing board in a common area.

In the final episode of the season (one of the best*) the team organizes a heist within a museum. EXPEDIT units, LEKMAN boxes, and BESTÅ shelving units are used to in the coat room set.

In their temporary base is a KVART worklamp.

Seasons 2, 3 and 4 hold even more goodies. Stay tuned.

*The whole double episode is incredibly slick and smart but what makes it the best is the brilliant elevator scene.

  1. I totally forgot about the elevator gag. And I really need to catch up on this show.

    Too much TV, too little time.
