    I like Edgar. I also like Benny, the lady forger played by Dichen Lachman.

    Spoiler from July 22 episode:
    And it looks like Benny has a thing for Edgar. Now THAT's an odd couple.

    (Dichen is half-Australian, half-Tibetan, which accounts for her exotic look and accent.)

    Unrealistic? Certainly. But it keeps the story going.

    I hope that this show doesn't turn into Leverage 2.0. I'm ok with bringing in people once in a while, but don't want to have a crew in every single episode.

    Just watched the season finale, and I hope the show returns.

    On that note, the episode number was 108. What kind of season (or half-season) has 8 episodes?

    It had ten episodes, which is not unheard-of for cable shows. The finalé was 109; the first episode was 100.

    Don't know. But my queue includes episode 10. We've only gotten through the first five though.

    Huh - I could have sworn it was 108. CRS syndrome I guess.

    I try to watch this show but it just puts me to sleep. (Warehouse 13 did the same thing) The lead woman is pretty hot, wish they would use that a little.

    I watched it accidentally a few weeks ago (had no idea it was even on) and actually enjoyed it. Got hooked ever since.

    I really enjoy the interaction between Benny and Edgar, though Edgar seems a bit overdone.

    I was fascinated by how they've adapted the TV series from David Baldacci's series of six (so far) King & Maxwell novels.

    The assassination and kidnapping plots that got King and Maxwell kicked out of the Secret Service were the subject of the first novel. Edgar Roy was the subject of the sixth novel. Yet in the TV series, Edgar is already working for them but the original mysteries haven't been solved yet. I guess the producers really wanted Edgar working from them asap.

    Not sure if I want to read the novels. Has anyone else here read them?

    I've read a couple of them and enjoyed them. That was the reason I tried the show.

    I've read all the books in the series. That's what drew me to the show.
    Still liking it!

    Alas, TNT announced today that King & Maxwell has been canceled. No second season. :(

    Obviously, their investigations were getting too close to the truth, so the Powers That Be had to shut them down.
