Storyline

Former insurance claims investigator Nathan Ford heads a team of former top-criminals. They handle 'unorthodox' cases of people unlikely to get their dues through regular channels and legal procedures. That often involves stinging or otherwise scamming criminals. Nate's team is altered at times, and his professional as well as personal past repeatedly seems to catch up. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Though seasons two through four were set in Boston, filming was actually done in Portland, Oregon. In "The Three Strikes Job", when Eliot (Christian Kane) is impersonating a baseball player, he makes a reference to having played in Portland. Also, the ballpark they are stealing, PGE Park, and the Beavers, are Portland's baseball team. In season five, the Leverage team finally makes their move to Portland in the show, as they film there anyway. See more »

"LEVERAGE" -- A Force of 5 Doing-Gooders against the Badders =
2 December 2008 | by jimchudnow-1See all my reviews

At an advance preview in Chicago (where much of the "Nigerian" pilot was shot), stars TIMOTHY HUTTON (as Nathan) and GINA BELLMAN (Sophie) agreed the first entry in their TNT series is somewhat like an updated "The 'A' Team" meets "Mission Impossible". Along with Christian KANE (as Eliot), BETH RIESGRAF (Parker), and ALDIS HODGE (Alec), they use high-tech methods to get back at a white-collar CROOK (& the series is scheduled to continue the "Robin Hood-ish" adventures against criminals and corporate scammers in subsequent episodes). The main characters start out as distrusting of each other, but eventually use their various individual expertises to create a cheeky, fast-moving and enjoyably clever series of retributions against the liars and other baddies in their world. An agreeable and promisingly well-acted start (well shot on HD cameras that allow fast work with much available-light conditions).
