One of my favorite TV series of all time. The first season has a few clunky moments, but it has one of the best first episodes of any show and the season overall is solid.

I have been waiting for years to have the time to check out an episode. It took only three days to watch the season and put holds on the remaining seasons. I wished they got a cut of all their actions as I like money

A truly clever and fabulous series. Lots of humour yet serious. An excellent cast and great stories.

Lots of noise and secrets, but not much story. A man's movie perhaps?

Disappointing. Had to stop after two episodes

Pure 100% all-American CHEESE!

I kept seeing previews for this show but never watched then one day out of boredom, I started watching season one and through the next three days I had watch the first four seasons. The acting is all pretty good, the cast all have good chemistry, and the scripts are all a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this to fans of more comedic action dramas.

Pure escapism at it's best. This cast is a lot of fun to watch. Make no mistake, this series is not high brow Shakespearean theater - just plain fun.

Leverage, the first season, is about a group of thieves and con artists brought together for a one time job. During that job, the members realize that it is better to work as a team rather than work alone. Therefore they form a corporation called Leverage and hire themselves out to rectify injustices. Their targets are typically corporations, shady business people as well as fellow criminals. The Leverage team, each member with special knowledge or skills, take on a variety of unusual and financially rewarding jobs. Although they are highly successful, their jobs don't always go as planned.

Clever premise, similar to A-Team, talented criminals turned helping those exploited by corporations etc. Enjoyable, likeable characters with depth as you learn more about them in each episode.
