The first of a five season run, “Leverage” is a crime show like you have never seen before, but will want to binge start to finish. Former insurance investigator Nate Ford knows all the cons in the book, both from his job and from growing up with a con artist for a father. When his son dies due to Big Business not being willing to pay for his treatment, Nate quits his job and forms a team of the best crooks he knows; a grifter, a hacker, a thief, and a retrieval specialist. Together they act as modern-day Robin Hoods, pulling elaborate cons against Big Business and governments to help the little guy.
The cast has great chemistry from the start, each with their own individual backstory and personality that turns what could have been a depressing premise into a show that not only holds your interest with intricate plots, but that will make you laugh during every episode. With its unique twist to the Robin Hood theme, “Leverage” is a show that everyone should try!
