Leverage: The 5th Season DVD Review


Synopsis: Leverage focuses on a team led by former insurance investigator turned thief, Nate Ford (Hutton). Together, they try to level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful. In the final season of Leverage, the team will be forced to face changing personal dynamics as the relationship between Parker (Riesgraf) and Hardison (Hodge) heats up, and Nate continues to struggle with inner demons. Among their upcoming jobs, they will target a conniving shipping executive (guest star Cary Elwes); weathly scientist; an ex-hockey-player-turned-team-owner (guest star Treat Williams); a corrupt restaurateur; and a corrupt businessman (guest star Matthew Lillard). In addition, the team will once again face their nemesis, insurance-investigator-turned Interpol-agent Jim Sterling (guest star Mark Sheppard).

Review: Leverage was a wonderful show that aired on TNT.  This DVD set represents the fifth and final season of the show, all 15 episodes.  This show has some of the best developed characters with fantastic chemistry.  It just flows so well.  The episodes managed to be full of action, intrigue and fun without ever delving into the vulgar or hypersexualized themes that so many other shows do.  The only thing that this show suffered from was poor scheduling by the network.  The airings became irregular at best and seasons were poorly promoted by TNT.  We're lucky to have gotten five seasons considering.  This show is like an ongoing Oceans 11 meets Sneakers.  Its phenominal in every way.  This DVD and the previous seasons are a must-have!
