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]  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.
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 (...Read more ›
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.
