It usually takes me about three episodes of a new series
to decide if it’s worth continuing to watch.
With “Leverage” I was hooked after the first 15 minutes..!!
Leverage might after a first show look like a series replica of “Oceans Eleven” movie with even the same generic music attached to some scenes,
In the vein of Ocean’s Eleven, this heist series follows a team of thieves, hackers and grifters who exact revenge against those who abuse power, such as (you know) rich people that can’t be touched by the law..
Timothy Hutton plays former insurance investigator Nate Ford,
a once-loyal employee who had recovered millions of dollars in stolen goods for his employer. But after Ford’s son dies because his employer denied insurance claims, he decides to lead a team of thieves who act as modern-day Robin Hoods, providing leverage to those who need it..
