Leverage: Season 3
Frequently Bought Together

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.

- 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.Read more ›
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?
Season Three starts with a bang, as the gang plots to rescue Nate from prison...and he still manages to get them a client behind bars (played by Aldis Hodge's real-life older brother). With a corrupt warden as the target, the tone is lighter than much of Season Two's episodes, and each cast member shines in comic moments. The tongue-in-cheek approach of the episode would be prevalent, throughout much of the season, which could be a mixed blessing (darker moments often provide more tension, and a greater sense of danger), but the "Leverage" plots are consistently entertaining, and the cast is always a pleasure, whatever the tone of the story.Read more ›
