One of the best shows on TV…nice to see the good guys win for a change. And the really great part….its not reality tv…..don’t let it go!


Sara September 10, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Renew it! I love this show.


marco September 6, 2012 at 2:33 am

Renew it..
Yes, some episodes went flat with no fresh ideas and sometimes the plan is outrageously dumb like it’s so lame that even me as the bad guy can catch them and stuck their head in the trash can.. But there’s always episodes where the memories of it’s first 2 season came back where they just blew me away with the well written scripts and marvelous tricks, tactics, etc..

By the way, I still think that it’s good to have some smart, funny and simple TV series like this whereas our TV is now full with vampire werewolves and chick flick..


Jean Oliver September 5, 2012 at 8:57 am

Leverage should definitely be renewed!!! It is my family’s favorite show. We wait all year for the summer season to get here and then Sunday after Sunday we are glued to our TV for each episode! That’s 2 in the 16-20 year demographic and 2 in the 48-52 year demographic. It’s full of action, drama, comedy, suspense and did I say action? Eliot/the Hitter is my all time favorite but I love all the other characters as well. Please renew this wonderfully written and directed show!!!!


Diane September 4, 2012 at 9:28 pm

I love “Leverage”. It is such an interesting series; with everything a viewer would want; martial arts, action, adventure, drama, humor and hints of romance between Parker and Hardison, and Nate and Sophie. My favorite character is Eliot (Christian Kane); I think I am in love with him; LOL!
Of course this show should be RENEWED! I look forward every week to the reruns on Wednesday and Sunday night. In my area, I start watching the show at 7:00 pm, and then at 10:00 pm, and then staying up past 3:00 am to watch the series marathon..


Karina September 4, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I love this show! Never cancel it. As long as they don’t bring back Elisabetta Canalis, they’re golden. I love the interplay between all the characters.


Maria September 4, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I am a huge Leverage fan since season 1. I’d be completely heart broken if this show was cancelled, but I’ve also noticed the hints. They seem to be getting bigger and bigger too. I’m really hoping that this show is renewed. I love all the unique aspects of it and would hate to see it go.


Rome September 4, 2012 at 2:00 am

I’ve kind of gotten the feeling through small pieces of dialogue that they’re setting it up for the possibility of this being the series finale, but also a setup for a possible spinoff with some of the characters; a LA The Closer/True Crime. I hope they renew as I do every year, but my gut is telling me its coming to an end.

Let’s hope I’m wrong.


Seth September 3, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Renewed – It’s such a unique show that if it got the right promotion by TNT and the stars it would be doing fantastic for the Network.
I just don’t think TNT is utilizing the comedic and cute value of Aldis Hodge/Hardison and Beth Riesgraf/Parker in promoting the show, on Late night talk shows and entertainment shows.


Maddy September 2, 2012 at 8:05 am

LEVERAGE is definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever watched (and I’ve watched many) so I want it to be renewed for 6th season, of course!!
I love how the characters work together and how they’ve developed throughthought the seasons. It would be stupid not to renew it! I would cry.
