A Boston immigration advocate informs Nathan about Russel and Gloria Pan's Golden Panda knock-off fashion sweat shop, which pays far less than minimum wage and uses dangerous food supplements to keep the workers working extra-long hours. To take down the Pans, Nate poses as fashion investor Jacques Bouvier, who recruits 'talented designer' Gloria. They scam $50,000 from them, but Russel turns out to be an alias of Triad big wig Nicholas Chow, so now they're up against the powerful Chinese gangsters. Written by KGF Vissers

When Tara is talking over camera to Sophie, the shots of Sophie keep changing between a single monitor screen and spread out over all six monitors. In the far shots, Sophie's face is split by the edges of the monitors, but in the closeup shots, her full face is in one single monitor. See more »

Leverage Season Two Episode 10 – The Runway Job: Air date January 13, 2010 Review by JAM

This is my first individual episode review of a show that I consider to be one of the top five shows on television. As I have mentioned in a Leverage Season One review on my site, the modern day Robin Hood feel makes this a fun show to watch and the interpersonal relationships between the team are interesting to say the least. The Runway Job is the return from their midseason break, and the show jumps into the fashion world for this trendy return.

Taking down a sweatshop run by the Triads was a little more than they bargained for when they first took the job, but the team works together in order to accomplish it. The idea of a tough gang of former crooks infiltrating and "stealing" a runway show is a very interesting plot point, and I think it gives Eliot (Christian Kane) a chance to show off a bit, both his suave lady charmer side and his acting chops as a fashion assistant.
