After the success of their freshman season, the gang from Leverage: The First Season are back and have relocated to Beantown to right the wrongs committed against regular people who have nowhere else to turn. They have all found that after doing good deeds, crime just isn't what it used to be. Whether it's tangling with the Irish mob, dealing with a shady boxing promoter, returning a corrupt investment banker's ill gotten gains, or ensuring that an inheritance goes to the rightful heir, all exhibit the savvy wit and quirkiness that has become the Leverage signature.

Thank goodness for TNT - which produces some of the best dramas on television. With plenty of nail biting action, humor, great music soundtrack, and ripped from the headline stories, the momentum just keeps building. And the chemistry among the cast is first rate, seamlessly adding Jeri Ryan to the cast late in the season when Gina Bellman (Sophie) took a hiatus due to her pregnancy. One of my favorite scenes is in the first episode when hacker Hardison introduces himself and Parker as detectives Costigan and Costello - an homage to the outstanding film The Departed (Widescreen Edition). My only gripe? The seasons are much too short.

This season not only boasts great one-liners from the actors and the writers, but also phenomenal guest appearances and acting that is better than it was before. They've worked out some of the finer issues that people had with the Season One set (like closed captioning in English) and the deleted scenes are sure to be a hoot if the actual aired episodes are any indication.

If you're looking for plot, then this is definitely a show to watch. Each one of these episodes is a "mini-movie" (according to show writer John Rogers) but there's also the major story arcs that flesh out each con. Sure, there's the formula that the episodes follow, but the majority of the time I have to squint to see it because I get so caught up with the brilliant acting and writing. With this show, it's so easy to forget that these are actors and the characters aren't real.

They handled Gina Bellman's pregnancy flawlessly (in the first viewing of the episodes where she's pregnant, I didn't notice the baby bump) and the temporary addition of Jeri Ryan was perfect. That's not to mention the episode sporting Wil Wheaton as a hacker.

This is such a great show! I actually care about what happens to the characters. It is the perfect blend of suspense, action adventure, romance, and humor. If you like White Collar, you'll like this show. Think of it as Mission Impossible(the classic tv show) meets Monk, meets Ocean's Eleven.

I have seen reviewers compare this show to the caper shows of the late sixties and seventies, and caper would definitely be the way to describe the basic premise, but this show is so much more. It is complex, sophisticated, fast-paced and at times very funny. It is GREAT entertainment, pure and simple. The cast is first-rate, they work together flawlessly, and they all seem to have a natural affinity for their characters' skills.

The basic premise is a group of loners with well-honed skills - a grifter, a hacker, a "hitter," and a thief - are brought together to do one job, and one job only, by former insurance claims investigator Nate Ford, the inimitable Timothy Hutton. In the course of the con, these very separate and very eccentric people start to learn to work together to accomplish a goal other than to fill their own pockets or fulfill their own needs. Those in the group who were not previously "con" artists per se get completely hooked on the game. People who have been victims of the greedy and powerful start to hear about Nate's team and come in search of justice. Despite several attempts at, and forced separations, the team also starts to get hooked on working with each other, and they get hooked on doing good. Ultimately, they are compelled to keep coming back for more.

The writing is impeccable, obviously well researched, and some of the best on television today. Amidst a plethora of ridiculous and downright repulsive "reality" shows, Leverage is a real breath of fresh air. May it go on for many seasons to come. I will buy them all! Thank you, TNT!

I truly enjoy this series...... It reminds me of the old Mission Impossible TV series..... I love the characters, they are an eclectic group of individuals that work well together and share a bond that you dont see in most TV programs. They have/show compassion with each other and with their clients.
I will be so glad when the new season starts up, and I am super glad that Sohpie is back!!!

"LEVERAGE" is the hit TV drama series on TNT executive produced by Dean Devlin ("Godzilla", "Independence Day" and "Universal Soldier"), Chris Downey ("The King of Queens") and John Rogers ("Cosby") and also to see involvement by Jonathan Frakes ("Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Roswell") as a director and Amy Berg ("The 4400') as a writer/producer.

"LEVERAGE" stars Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton ("The Good Shepherd", "Ordinary People" and "The Last Mimzy"), Christian Kane ("Angel", "Close to Home"), Aldis Hodge ("Red Sands", "Friday Night Lights"), Gina Bellman ("Coupling", "Jekyll" and "Permanent Vacation"), Beth Riesgraf ("Struck") and Mark Sheppard ("Battlestar Galactica" and "Dollhouse") who are part of a group of thieves who steal from the corrupt and give to the needy.

For the first season, the series would become a major hit for TNT as it became the #1 program on Tuesday nights with solid ratings for the drama series. As the series is now approaching its third season, the second season will be available on DVD featuring 15 episodes on 4-DVD's and plenty of special features!

"LEVERAGE" revolves around former Insurance Investigator Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton) who has exposed scams and recovered stolen items worth millions for his insurance company. But when it came to getting his son's medical treatment covered, his insurance company denied it and his son died because he was unable to get the treatment he needed.

One day, someone gives Nate a chance to get back at his insurance company, if he teams up with a group of thieves and manages them.
