    A good series with one of the best pilot episodes I have ever seen. The pilot itself could have made for a stand alone special as is, and I would have loved it. The rest of the series was creative and could keep my attention, but was not as good as say, Burn Notice.

    This is a very smart show. Some episodes have been weak but they seem to have pulled it out of weak and into interesting amusing and over all fun to watch. When most shows and networks have gone to crap (SyFy) this is definitely a show worth watching.

    One of the best shows on TV lately. A masterly-created plot, suspense through the whole episode, perfect acting and many more add to the overall likeness of the show.

    If you want to be entertained by this show, realize up front what you are getting. It lacks realism on all levels, but if you can get past that, it is enjoyable and watchable. The characters are well done and the sort of Ocean's Eleven (the new ones) endings are memorable.

    Don't think Leverage is preachy--it's shrewdly conceived, and it moves along like a son of a gun.

    Leverage isn’t quite as effortlessly intoxicating--it must make do with the dependable but suave-challenged Timothy Hutton--but when it works, the TNT series has a rascally tingle.

    Aside from an easygoing quality and mild comic flair, there's not much here to steal the hearts of viewers; instead, it's another modest, lightweight addition to TNT's diner-style menu of comfort food for a weary nation.
