TNT’s “Leverage”

I’m enjoying the new TNT series “Leverage”, which stars the talented Timothy Hutton. It has the feel of the “Oceans” movies; the “Mission Impossible” TV series and movies, and especially an old favorite from my early adult years; “Switch”, in which an ex-cop, played by Eddie Albert and a reformed con man, played by Robert Wagner, team up to open a detective agency. They were often assisted by their secretary, played by Sharon Gless, who went on to fame in “Cagney and Lacey.”

I always love it when the bad guys get conned and get what’s coming to them, lol.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.

    I’m addicted to this show. I agree with your comparisons – I’d add it has a touch of the A-Team as well.

    So far the scripts have been really tight and suspenseful, with just the right amount of action. And I love how the characters are written so that you shouldn’t like them but you root for them anyways.

  2. Michelle,

    Yeah, I missed the A-Team influence.
