For its third season, the Leverage team expands its horizons and reveals hidden talents. The year begins with Nate (Timothy Hutton) behind bars. In getting to the bottom of another inmate's suspiciously long sentence, the team members uncover a wider scam at the private prison, and their leader goes free. As Nate says in the opening introduction, "The rich and powerful take what they want. We steal it back for you." Among others, they take down a shady software mogul (Arye Gross) and humiliate a devious debt collector (Clancy Brown).

Music comes into play when Alec (Aldis Hodge) poses as a violin virtuoso and Eliot (Christian Kane) competes with a sleazy country impresario (John Schneider) for singing supremacy (both men acquit themselves nicely). Along the way, Parker (Beth Riesgraf) sees Alec in a new light, though Nate attempts to keep his distance from Sophie (Gina Bellman), with whom he enjoyed a kiss in season two. Episode highlights include "The King George Job," in which the group travels to London, and "The Rashomon Job," in which each member shares a contradictory account of a museum heist, while notable guest stars include Richard Chamberlain as Parker's mentor and Tom Skerritt, who almost played Hutton's father in Ordinary People, as Nate's dad.

Set in Boston, Leverage is shot in oft-overcast Portland, but still offers a welcome change from overexposed Los Angeles. Bellman, who missed part of the previous year due to pregnancy, returns full time and contributes to some of the more entertaining sequences as she teaches Parker how to ensnare marks. The season ends with a carefully plotted two-parter that brings out the best in some, the worst in others. The extra features offer deleted scenes, featurettes, behind-the-scenes footage, and 16 commentary tracks from cast and crew, including writer-creator Dean Devlin and director Jonathan Frakes. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

The expert con artists of TNT’s hit crime drama Leverage are back for an all-new season of complex heists and high-stakes action. With the team’s leader Nate Ford (Academy Award®-winner Timothy Hutton) now behind bars and his nemesis working for Interpol, a beautiful but mysterious stranger steps in to call the shots for TV’s hottest gang of master thieves. Season Three of this action-packed series starts off with a bang as the teammates devise schemes to free Nate from prison, expose a trafficker’s child slave-labor ring, and infiltrate a Department of Defense research lab to take down international terrorists. These tech-savvy grifters are highly skilled and ready to settle scores with the criminal underworld.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why No Subtitles??? June 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this show. The main characters are always interesting and funny and they mesh together well. The plots are intricate and creative, and there's comedy (sometimes in the most unexpected places) to offset the drama and tragedy. I love that each character is more than simply a "hitter, hacker, grifter, thief" -- the "hitter" has a sensitive side and sings beautifully; the "hacker" played violin and such other incongruous details that really flesh out the characters.

But I miss the subtitles most DVDs now come with. I'm hearing-impaired, and I think the only one on the show who doesn't slur words is Timothy Hutton. Him, I can usually understand, but I'm constantly asking my husband what Parker, Elliot, Sophie, and Hardison are saying.

Hopefully subtitles will be included in future sets?

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's go steal Season 3 June 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
- Nate Ford: "Let's go steal the Department of Defense."
- Parker: "Isn't that... treason?"
- Nate Ford: "We'll give it back."

These well-meaning crooks must go thru a lot of ear wigs; maybe Costco sells them in bulk. LEVERAGE has made it thru three seasons, which bodes well for those TNT viewers aspiring to be career criminals. Shows like this one and WHITE COLLAR and even BURN NOTICE go a ways in gratifying your inner grifter. Me, I've been taking notes, just in case my day job doesn't pan out. I'm this close to mastering the "Fiddle Game" and the "Vegas Wakeup Call" scam.

The end of Season 2 found incarceration beckoning for Nate Ford, the mastermind who made sure everyone else on his team got away clean. Season 3 finds him still behind bars, but he seems to be okay with serving out his sentence. It took learning that a fellow inmate had been framed for Nate to call in the cavalry and to turn the tables on the shady warden. But, once out of stir, things don't quite revert to status quo. Not when Nate is promptly blackmailed by a mysterious beautiful woman (Elisabetta Canalis) and given six months to take down Damien Moreau, shadowy financier to the most notorious, high-powered criminals all over the globe. It always means more when a season is galvanized by an ongoing plot thread.

When not taking on missions which will get them closer to nabbing Damien Moreau, the Leverage team is in full-on Robin Hood mode as it takes on the likes of corrupt CEOs, murderous record executives, ruthless debt collectors, and even the Russian cartel.

Format:DVD
When the whimsical "Leverage" arrived on the television scene in 2008, I had just finished watching the delightful British crime caper series "Hustle." Needless to say, if you've sampled both programs--they share more than a passing similarity. I know every "Leverage" fan was instantly enchanted by our merry band of mischievous do-gooders, but I just couldn't get the comparison out of my mind and the program lacked a bit of the easiness and subtlety of its like minded cousin from across the pond. Subtlety is certainly never a word I will associate with "Leverage," in fact, which usually plays so broadly and comically that it is often bordering on slapstick. But, that's okay. The erratic tone of the show soon steadied itself and the attractive cast stepped up with nimble comic performances. A show about clever cons soon gave way to a show about clever con artists. To me, "Leverage" works most successfully as a sly and humorous ensemble piece.

Sure, there is often amusement to be had in the various cases (sometimes they even reach for genuine emotion as our gang tries to right the wrongs of injustice) but the strength of the show lies in witty banter and an easy camaraderie of our crew. The cases themselves can range from laugh out loud funny to downright preposterous, but no matter how silly things get--the actors engage and sell it! Gina Bellman as the grifter, Beth Riesgraf as the thief, Christian Kane as the muscle, and Aldis Hodge as the techie all give stellar performances. They've grown into their roles and expanded beyond the initial stereotypes. The inner battles and positioning within the team are priceless. Ostensibly a vehicle for Oscar winning actor Timothy Hutton as the mastermind, he is actually the weakest aspect of the show for me personally.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Case!!! January 20, 2011
By Scott
Verified Purchase
This is a really good episode which is slightly scary thinking about this happening in real life. As much as I see big corporations not caring about its own employees- it makes me think about pharmaceutical companies not really caring about its consumers- it's all about revenue in the end. I suppose that's why the FDA was first constructed, but they seem politically motivated to do certain things and should have been held accountable for releasing certain items out to the general public. Ahh politics- really makes you think twice about using those pills in the cabinet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Any Leverage is a good Leverage August 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have never been disappointed in an episode of Leverage and this is no exception. I missed this one during the regular season and so bought just the one episode to enjoy. I have every full season that has been released and will also be buying Season 5. Great writing, exceptional acting, interesting characters and a lot of fun even when it's a serious subject. Exciting too. Don't miss out on an opportunity for real entertainment that can be enjoyed over and over again.
