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 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 ›
I wasn't much of a fan of 'Hustle' on the BBC and this is similar, but less smug, more varied, less formulaic and more character driven - with some great characters. Gina Bellman is excellent as always and it's lovely to see Tim Hutton doing a good role, but all of the cast are top notch.
I've seen half a dozen episodes so far and the quality remains high all the way through, I'm just shocked this hasn't been picked up for UK terrestrial broadcast.
Think 'Hustle' but better - with fighting (!), made in the US, and with a top notch British actress and a great cast - and you're heading towards 'Leverage'.
