Show Summary

"Get ready to get even." Meet Nathan Ford, a former insurance investigator who spent his professional career dedicated to the company that he recovered millions in stolen goods for. This same insurance company would refuse a medical claim for his son that would take the life of the innocent child. Unemployed and teetering on the edge, Nate is approached about a Robin Hood-like scheme. He enlists the help of the best thieves and grifters in the business, and with their help, he steals from the rich and gives to the poor to help balance the crooks in high power positions. He and his team help provide...leverage. Leverage is produced by Electric Entertainment.

  • Started off well.

    5.0
    The first couple of seasons were pretty good and notable, the others -not so much.



    As time went on their antics become more and more unnecessarily convoluted and unbelievable, even the characters went from 'unique' but believable to perfect glam hair all the time and slow motion action scenes/walkaways.

    Take Parker -she went from this weird, quirky, socially awkward and unique individual to just some fairly attractive perfect haired Hollywood action-chick cut out.

    The cherry on top is that this remarkable change and development is due to her eating some food at a decent restaurant. seriously?



    Either a show lasts too long and it gets bad or it doesn't last long enough too get bad.

    Leverage lasted too long.moreless

    great show, one of my favorites along with White Collar and Suits; Please bring it (or at least part of it) back!



    Make Adam Baldwin, or better yet, Jeffrey Donovan, some sort of FBI handler for a trio (Elliot, Parker and Hardison) of covert "consultants" or something, handling cases "that aren't illigal, just wrong" and that the FBI can't officially pursue. Bind it along with the odd freelance side-job once in a while, all wrapped around a backbone storyline about Nate and Sophie being missing, only managing to send a clue every other episode for a few seasons. A sort of Leverage meets Burn Notice. They can even find a spot for Bruce Campbell as the sort of likeable but shady "go-to guy that can get you anything, with a wink and a smile" That'd be freggin' awesome !



    I wouldn't even mind it if they all drove Hyundais and KIAs, drank Pepsi and ate Doritos and Subway on every episode to pay for the whole thing!moreless
  • I MISS LEVERAGE!!!!!!

    I always looked forward to watching Leverage. I was very, very disappointed when

    I found out the show was cancelled. I am now watching all the reruns on ION.





    I do think they did a good job ending the show. "The Long Goodbye Job" was very satisfying.

    They need to bring this show back. This was a really good show, all my family & friends watched this show each week including repeats. People are really tried of paying for cable and not being able to watch the shows they want to see. Too many REALTY shows. TV used to be free, now we pay and cannot watch the shows we like.
