In short I think Leverage is fantastic! The stories are convincing and surprising, ALL the actors are doing a great job and the characters of the show are intriguing. You have scripts that contain a well-balanced mix of thriller and comedy and all those single players forced to work as a team are a lot of fun to watch. The idea of a bunch of con artists screwing bad guys in suits is certainly not new, but that doesn't make it any bit less enjoyable to watch. Ocean's 11 might be more glamorous but Leverage sure makes you laugh more often, especially watching Elliot & Hardison, the muscle and the geek, being forced to team up is always hilarious. You're in for a treat with this show, you have my word on that!!!

This is a comedy thriller series about a series of thieves and con-men who help people out. Clearly not aiming for social realism or a political message it is by and large entertaining.

The characters are well defined, and their interaction provides a lot of the humour. Of the characters I actually found Timothy Hutton a bit tiresome, as the alcoholic team leader, he was entirely wonderful in A NERO WOLFE MYSTERY - Series 1.

The series starts off in tremendous style, with the first episode easily being the strongest of the bunch, the series really does start to sag in the middle. The nature of a show like this is that you get the same basic plot every week, so with a box set it is easy to overdose and find it all a bit samey, better to ration out the episodes. I suspect that a writers pool was maybe relied on mid season to produce episodes, with the proviso that they were not allowed to actually develop any of the characters, hence proficient but not dazzling episodes.

The series does go up a notch for the conclusion, and I will be ordering the next series for family viewing.

I would however pitch this below Burn Notice - Season 1 [DVD] [2007] for family entertainment. Definitely try out Burn Notice first, but if you have run out of Burn Notice series to watch then you might be pleasantly surprised by this.

As an avid fan of American cop and forensic shows, or just the good versus evil genre of programmes this is one to watch. It's meant to be cheesy and entertaining and it pulls this off very well. Of the more serious programmes I would rate CSI New York as the best. And for more entertaining and humorous NCIS and The Closer. As a first season this is very very good indeed out of the stalls judging it against the afore mentioned shows. Characters are varied, dysfunctional and quirky, and it is probably the nearest I have seen in a long time of a show having a potential to grow into that 80's A-Team feel.

It's a fifteen show series so not quite as good value as some of the 24 part series but if you like Burn Notice, NCIS and The Closer, you will love this. There is a little bit of mission impossible thrown in and I would hope the writers develop this style more, in line with a solid character line-up.

The best way to describe Leverage, is that it's the American version of the much loved, light hearted & since recently, long running BBC show Hustle. A group of con men & woman, all with a particular set of skills come together to pull off daring jobs, with many plot twists. But with this being the American version of the more reserved British, Hustle, you get a lot more bang for your buck as it were, with some more occasional A-Team style action & robin hood ethics mixed in with serious stories & light hearted banter. Lets meet the team...

The Brains: Nathan Ford (Timothy Hutton -T.A.P.S.).
The Grifter: Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman- Coupling)
The Hitter: Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane -Angel).
The Thief: Parker (Beth Riesgraf)
The Hacker: Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge)

The show attracts some well known faces as regular guest characters & special guests, with the likes of Jeri Ryan (Star Trek Voyager), Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13), Mark A. Sheppard (

Leverage is a light-hearted and fast-paced US TV show, that hasn't really had the audience it deserves on British TV. Embittered ex-insurance investigator Nathan Ford is hired by a company to steal back some plans taken by a competitor. To do so, he assembles a team from those criminals he could never quite catch in previous years.

The team are computer hacker Hardison, sneak thief Parker, enforcer Spencer, and grifter Sophie Devereaux, played by the delightful Gina Bellman. The relationships between the team members are what makes the show really sparkle, with witty dialogue and light-hearted bickering. After the initial job, the team are kept together by Ford, who insists that they use their talents to help the helpless.

Each story follows a strict formula, with a target being selected, investigated, and then conned, each time culminating in the great theme music playing over a flashback which reveals how the con was done. Some of the episodes are a bit too samey, but when it works, it's excellent, and leaves you grinning contentedly at how the plan came together.

Leverage has some similarities with the BBC show "Hustle", but is probably more influenced by US films such as "The Sting". It maintains a real sense of style and fun throughout, and is definitely a cut above the usual level of US import.
