TNT is giving us a 2 hour Leverage block tonight, and for a few more weeks, to get us situated back to the crime drama and I for one cannot be happier. But these first two episodes were far from the quality we expect from this show, the second one in particular. I thought high school reunion episodes were only on sitcoms, and not dramas, but now that theory is out the window. The whole storyline just a felt bit contrived and forced at time.
I will say that Gina Bellman was actually enjoyable here trying to flirt with the subject of their heist. Usually she irritates me to no end but here I did not mind her character at all.
Not the worst Leverage ever, but I certainly hope the next two are better.
