Leverage: Season One – DVD Review


Extremely entertaining and addictive, Leverage is a solid heist/con-job series from TNT. Oscar Winner Timothy Hutton (Best Supporting Actor – Ordinary People), stars as Nathan Ford, a former insurance investigator who decides to go after the big corporations and corrupt businessmen he once worked for.

Along for the ride is a team of tech-savvy and ultra-clever thieves who work together to do what’s right even if society would deem it wrong or illegal. Each episode involves Ford and company playing elaborate and complex con games with those who are trying to screw over the little guy.

It’s a great series. TNT really has delivered a show that is hip, engaging, and fun to watch. This is definitely a show you can sit down and watch multiple episodes of in one sitting and still want more.
