Leverage is currently my favorite TV series. It’s not (yet) on TV in Germany, but thankfully I got the DVD set of the first season as a prize for my Song Fu contributions. I watched most of it throughout the past few nights. The show is great! It scores very high in terms of plot and cast. Most episodes could have easily been turned into whole movies. The lead characters are the perfect mix of individuals. Timothy Hutton rocks and I now have a soft spot for Parker. The relationships are subtle and the chemistry mainly woven into the fabric of the job at hand. I like to think that Leverage is about honor among thieves. My favorite episodes (so far) are The Mile High Job, The Homecoming Job and especially The Stork Job. And the two David Jobs make for a supsenseful finale. VOX has secured the broadcasting rights for Germany, so look out for it this Fall.
