Best one yet
12 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

By far one of the best "Leverage" of the young season so far, this season to me hadn't lived up to the high quality of the writing and acting of the first season, I was looking so forward to Season 2 because Season 1 was so great that the first 3 episodes kind of let me down or maybe it was me expecting to much too soon.

This episode seem so much better and if it's any indication of how the rest of the season will be then I will be hooked once again. Before this episode I really didn't look forward to the following week but I can say that I am now.

Id give it a 10 out of 10 but I am waiting for to watch the rest of the season to see if there will be an even better episode. Otherwise I would easily give this one a 10, I don't want to reveal what happens in this episode because I don't want to ruin it for everyone. Watch and judge it for yourself, you will just might agree with me about being the best of the young season
