TV show description:
Nathan Ford (Timothy Hutton) was once a loyal fraud investigator for IYS Insurance. His point of view changed when the insurance company refused to pay for experimental treatment that could have saved his young son. Because of his intricate knowledge of scams, Nathan’s recruited by Victor Dubenich to join a team of talented criminals to “steal back” aeronautical plans that were supposedly stolen by a competitor.

When the job is completed, Dubenich tries to double-cross the team and unsuccessfully tries to blow them up. The group decides to run a con on their former employer and Dubenich ends up ruined and arrested by the FBI. When the the team is done, they form Leverage Consulting & Associates and start to help everyday people who’ve been ripped off by corrupt corporations and government agencies.

Among Nathan’s colleagues is Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), a con-woman who uses her acting skills for art thievery. Ironically, though she’s very successful as an actress for the team’s scams, she has little success as a legitimate performer.

Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane) is a highly-skilled martial artist who is also a weapons and retrieval expert. He shows great proficiency with guns, yet despises them.

Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) is a computer hacker extraordinaire and a gadget guru. A self-proclaimed geek, he also has a penchant for science fiction. Parker (Beth Riesgraf) doesn’t have a known first name, and is a thief, cat burglar, and explosives expert. She also has an unnatural love of money, and a soft spot for Alec and children. She and Alec share the common bond of both being raised by foster parents.

They need to bring Leverage back and continue it. It was such a different type of series and so unique and full of action. NOT the run-of-the-mill cop and court series that we keep having with cops strong arming the citizens and bresaking into their houses and acting like God – sick of that.. Leverage gave us a new view and type of story and they kept it interesting – never knew what woudld happen next. Love that show and it was top rated by all those who wrote to me, as I kept track of TV shows ratings and reported them back to the network…WE need to have Leverage back.

This series is fun to watch, the characters deal with the negative aspects of socioeconomic ills, while reminding the audience the characters themselves were criminals.
I would enjoy a reunion episode utilizing the original cast undertaking complex global issues, expanding the cast trained by the original cast to tackle global problems. Adding Bollywood actors, Japanese Geeks, etc.
