This show is different, it is episode-to-episode action 99% of the time there isn't connection between the episodes (apart the actors of course). The background plot is little to non-existent and is developing slower than the creation of a new galaxy. Well then, you might ask, why should I watch it? It's simple, Leverage is a modern version of Robin Hood, instead of a forest we have the city, but we still have the rich "villains" who are stepping all over the normal hard working people. Here come the team to bring them down, and correct any injustice they get to know.
The series looks like "The A-team" meets "Mission Impossible" meets "Ocean's 11", it is brilliant. We have fast-paced action, robberies, cons, hi-tech stuff, almost no drama in the main plot (as its near non-existent), great acting by everyone and awesome development of characters, I especially like our mastermind, who has a ton of problems and personal issues as well which at times fuel his fury. There is also a touch of comedy, fun, in almost every episode. Well this is it people, another show worth giving it a shot. Peace, I'm out.
