New TV show: Leverage


September is the best time for TV show fans. It's about not where your favourite show begin their newest season and where new project launch their first season. I've been on the look out for some new show to watch and have found one, it goes by the name Leverage

The series is about a team of top criminals lead by Nathan Ford (played by Timothy Hutton), who previously was the man best at chasing these people down as an insurance investigator. Each of the team has an area of expertise i.e. Acrobatics, tech, fighting and grifting all the usual suspect's you would expect to find. Each of the team have always worked alone which is where Nathan comes in. He is the boss man for 2 reasons. 1. He is the only 'honest' one among them to make sure no one gets any funny ideas. 2. He is the only one who knows what each one is capable making him the best man to come up with the plan, plus he's seen it all. Let me introduce you to the rest of the team:

  • Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman): The beautiful and sophisticated con-woman capable of pulling the wool over anyone's eye.   
  • Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane): Provides the action, when it's time to get physical he's your man. Plays this part very well. He acts the tough guy but has a soft side. 
  • Parker (Beth Riesgraf): Take care of the wire work, spends a lot of the time zip wiring down buildings and crawling through air vents. She also clearly has a few issues to deal with.
  • Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge): Bring the light hearted humor to the show. He the man with all the gizmos and gadgets and there's nothing he can't do with a computer and an internet connection. I can see Alec and Eliot will be my favourite characters.

Season 4 has just begun in America but here in sunny England channel one (formerly Virgin 1) has just started season 1. I've just got done watching episode 1 of the first season and so far I'm impressed. I love watching TV/film's with a crime caper premise the more and this show has a bit of everything; humor, action clever plan's and its not too serious.

Fan of Hustle, the Oceans movies or even misson impossible I think you'll like the series. I myself will defiantly be watching more episods, I have a feeling it will get even better.

Feel free to leave a comment on what you think of the show bellow, it would be good to get your thoughts on it.

Don't go changin'
