Leverage is an American TV series that first aired on TNT in December 2008. Leverage follows a team of former top-criminals (professional thieves, computer hackers, and con artists) headed by former insurance agency investigator Nathan Ford, now the team’s mastermind. The team acts as “Robin Hoods” who use their skills to help people where the justice system has failed and the rich and powerful have got away with things unpunished.

In each episode the team meets with the client first, then they research the criminal to accurately form a plan, which typically involves the skills of all the team members.

The show is fairly predictable but I still watch every episode. If you have missed it I recommend that you tune in. I love the fact that they are doing good things and helping people who deserve to be helped, even though their means may be questionable.

“The rich and powerful, they take what they want. We steal it back for you. Sometimes bad guys make the best good guys. We provide… ‘leverage’.” (Nathan Ford)
