Leverage

found thus by chance. the show moves at quite a fast pace, aided by what i can only described as cheesy, sixties/seventies style tempo. i love it. it seemed a bit tacky at first but the story line seemed quite interesting and reminiscent of hustle, a british show, in which a group with varied criminal skills get together and run scams on people they believe can go without.


what i liked about leverage is the quirkyness of the characters and the mixture of humour as they come together as a team. it is not slick, and this is what makes it clear that this hotch potch group of individuals are trying to pull it together to revenge the chap that did a dirty on them. i would like to see more more episodes just to see how it develops.

I thought this was GREAT -- Yes it had a few cheesy moments but that's what made it great. I haven't watched Hustle but I've seen previews for it -- seems like this is a good US take. I like the "Robin Hood" base story line -- don't mess with the little guy -- there is ALWAYS someone bigger - or smarter. It also made me LAUGH - I think Parker is my fav -- shes NUTZ and likes it that way - LOL. I love the Ocean movies and this seems like it will be a weekly version of that type of humor and misdirection. Very Good show -- hope it lasts longer than the 13 eppies that are in the can. I am wondering where the second epp is - the have a snippet about it in the review but its not here - guess it's on its way
