This is by far my favorite show on TV. I have never missed an episode and I have watched since the very first Episode. Christian Kane brought me to it, as I had watched him on Angel, and I continued because I had never seen a show like it before. The characters have so much depth and quirkiness and I have loved watching them become a cohesive work/family unit over the last 5 years. There are so many more plots that can be explored and there is still so much we don’t know about the characters. I hope they get renewed for a 6th season, I would be very upset if it didn’t.

I Love “LEVERAGE”! This is a one of a kind show.There is nothing else on the networks like this and thats great. I’m so tired of the same old same old show, different people ,different time or date but the same stuff. “Leverage” is the only show out there that is for the true blue collar work man or should we say The Underdogs. People fighting for the people. Sticking it to the man when the people cant.After a hard days work were we are feed up you can come home and watch a show that makes you laugh and makes you cry. Has you jumping up on the edge of your chair rooting for the bad guys.Leverage is very well writing and directed. Great cast and crew. Awesome guest on the show at all times. It makes you wish there really was a “Leverage” crew.The cast make you want to sit down and have a drink with at the end of the day or week and talk. They act and feel like we do.Tired of people getting screwed and want to do something about it. Please renew “LEVERAGE”. I would hate to see the BEST SHOW IN TV HISTORY TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RENEW IT. All the characters are awesome, and I don’t know what I’ll do if I don’t have this show to refresh me after a long day.

I don’t want it renewed, I NEED it renewed! I really can’t understand why it’s taking so long for TNT to make a decision; no reason not to renew. I really like the other TNT shows but, I love Leverage. None of the new (& not so new ) shows are as well thought out and written. The ensemble cast is the best since Mash! I will keep pushing TNT to renew Leverage by e-mail, note cards, spreading the word to my followers on the internet spaces I follow and whatever else needs done. Thank You for the opportunity to voice my opinion and to all my contacts; get moving!
