Leverage - Season 1


It definitely was interesting. Thankfully none of the permanent characters are irritating. I did have some issues with some of the episodes though.


Episode 8 – The Mile High Job

  • The main villain has put up a potential witness on a plane to the Cayman Islands.
  • The main villain has also put up a bad guy on the plane to kill this potential witness before the plane lands.
  • The main villain has also put a bomb on the plane to blow up the bad guy (along with all the other passengers) after the bad guy has killed off the potential witness.

Well, if you are going to be putting a bomb on the plane, I don’t see why you need to hire an assassin as well. Kind of stupid.

It would definitely be a hell lot easier to get the potential witness killed in some place less crowded. A plane!! out of all the places?! come on!

Episode 3 – The Two-Horse Job

Hard to believe someone interested in the horse business and capable of insurance fraud is so easily duped. It seemed like the character just woke up one morning and decided to get into the business.

Episode 2 – The Homecoming Job

The commandos did seem a bit too stupid, don’t you think?

Anyway, it was watchable.

Have the first 8 episodes of Season 2 downloaded as well. Next week, will see what’s that about.

Hmm heres a new series I might add to my list. Do you recommend it? I like '24' so is along the same lines?

Hey Mathai,

24 is too good.

Leverage is.... well it's ok. It's watchable. I would suggest downloading only the first 3 episodes to see if you are ok with it. It does have it's moments.

The only thing is how good you are at tolerating certain episodes which seem to work more because of the mark's stupidity as opposed to the Leverage teams ingenuity.

I get irritated easily. Very low tolerance capacity when it comes to stupidity.
