Tonight, Wednesday July 15, 2009, the second season of Leverage kicks off with a bang on TNT.
If you didn’t watch last season, Leverage is the story of a group of people with a unique set of skills – thief, hacker, thug, con artist – led by a former insurance investigator, Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton). Each episode pits this group against corporate or government bullies ignoring or running over the common man in the name of profit or gain.
The group includes: Ford, an alcoholic ex-insurance investigator; Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), a con woman with a penchant for bad acting on stage; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane), a weapons/martial arts expert with a distaste for (yet extensive knowledge of) guns; Parker (Beth Riesgraf), cat burglar extraordinaire with a complete lack of social skills (she’s one of our favorites); and Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge), gadget guy and hacker extraordinaire. It’s quite a cast of characters and we get to know their quirks a little more each week.
I know we’ll be tuning in at my house!! How about you?
p.s. Be sure to pick up Leverage season 1 on DVD at Amazon!
