The endless hours of clicking, voting, retweeting, tweeting to give Leverage the People's Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Drama paid off today. Every Grifters' effort was rewarded with a simple but powerful line in the People's Choice List of Winners for 2013.
The feeling was amazing. It was elation. It was happiness and joy. It was relief. It was invigorating to the fighting spirit of the Grifters that maybe, just maybe, we can still save this great show.
Some may say it is just a People's Choice Award. It is not an Emmy nor a Golden Globe. But I will take it anyway. An award is an award. A Grifter mentioned how ironic it is that this PCA enabled us to give Leverage some leverage, as we try to help look for networks or whatever ways to bring the show back on air. Apart from this, I also view this award as the fans way of giving thanks to the wonderful cast and crew of Leverage for giving us 5 amazing years. It is a joy to be part of this Leverage family and I am proud to be called a Grifter.
The way this award made Dean Devlin, John Rogers, Chris Downey, Tim Hutton, Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf, Christian Kane, Aldis Hodge and all other people involved with the show so happy made all voting efforts worth it.
