  1. Just want to thank the cast for such a wonderful job they did in filming Merlin, I wish it would have continued or changed the ending as they did through out the whole story line! Such a depressing and sad ending on Christmas Eve that I never thought it would end like that! Very disappointed wish they would have had a better ending NOT HAPPY but thank you again to such wonderful actors especially Colin Morgan and Bradley James Phenomenal Job!!!

  2. LEVERAGE!!! that was THE BEST CON EVER!! hoping that USA NETWORK will pick it up so this great show can continue on!

  3. I’m sad to see it go, but I am hoping another network will pick up the series, or that TNT will realize what they did and pick it up again!

  4. Leverage was one of the best shows that we had to say a bitter sweet goodbye to. We lost such a great cast, crew, director, producer and writers. We will miss you all. Thanks for a great five years.

  5. I liked or loved a few of these shows – but it’s all about LEVERAGE!! Unbelievable they would cancel it with the fan following and numbers it was still getting!

  6. Leverage is the only decent show with a message of justice! I have taken a poll of my own (42 to be exact) and it seems that majority of people that likes Leverage are those that are not selfish. Age range of poll from 22-58. If they had more episodes like those in season 1-3 and most of season 5 then I think there would be a season 6 with the entire cast. Farewell Nate, Hardison, Eliott and Parker!

  7. As sad as I am to see Merlin end I do think it’s time had come but the same cannot be said for Leverage. I too think TNT have made a massive mistake. Anyway I’d just like to say well done to the cast and crew of both shows and to say thank you for five brilliant years.
