    Please bring Leverage back for more seasons. Sometimes I was not able to catch it when it aired but I would catch up on demand so I did not miss any episodes.

    We need to rally for Leverage, and against those who brought it down…namely the evil, greedy Wal-mart Conglomerate! We should all boycot Wal-mart for sure, if we haven’t already! Then demand that TNT show some (b…s) initiative and fight back for Leverage, for the wonderful cast and crew, and for all of the wounded viewers who have been punched in the gut, having their favorite program thrust out from under them! And for what? No good reason except having been pounced on by a paranoid, full of sour grapes, guilty as hell Giant Corporate Bully! We may just need the real life “Leverage” crew to solve this one! If only…..

    Please bring back leverage it’s my favorite show. You keep canceling the good shows please bring this one back it was the only reason I kept the satalite proraming I have so I would be able to watch it, if you don’t bring it back I will lower my satalite bill by dropping the tere that contains your station!
