A parody of "The Office," this episode is centered at Good Cheer Greeting Card Co. Good Cheer is run by CEO, Fred Bartley, who speaks fluent pigskin. The team infils Good Cheer as an efficiency consulting outfit, pending a buyout by Heartfelt. There is Gunter, a stoic German filmmaker who is making a documentary and is smitten with Parker. Has the team uncovered illegal activity at Good Cheer? How stupid is Sophie to confide in HR ... and to try to talk froufrou with a helmet head? Nate and the guys get the picture.

Funniest Episode So Far
12 December 2016 | by serenahan-17333See all my reviews

This episode is a parody of "The Office," hence the shaking-screen documentary style filming, which I personally dislike (hurts my eyes mostly). But this is all forgivable because the comedy and further development in each characters more than make-up for it.

The trademark "interview" shots (parody from The Office, where individual characters are interviewed privately) contained the funniest moments where Nate and Sophie's relationship and its problems were poked at The team also has hilarious moments trying to ditch the quite "determined" filming crew, especially Parker.

As for Eliot and Hardison, their usual playful antagonism hits the core of their relationship and trust in this episode, which gave more depth to their camaraderie in the end.

If you like Leverage for its comedic factors, you will certainly enjoy this episode.
