It’s Sunday, and I’m kind of glad, because it means another great, full week of new TV. So to start our your week, check out what we think you should be watching tonight! 🙂
I’m so excited because tonight is the season premiere of Leverage. This show is so good and always a lot of fun to watch. If you don’t know the premise (and beginning its fifth season, I don’t know why you wouldn’t, but I’ll give it to you just in case. 😉 ), it’s about a group of thieves, con artists, and grifters who have (mostly lol) turned their lives around and use their skills to help people who need it and have nowhere else to turn. The team is led by Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton), who used to be an insurance investigator until insurance wouldn’t pay for his son to have a life-saving treatment and his little boy died. He became an alcoholic and is, for the most part, a functioning alcoholic still. The team consists of Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), a brilliant grifter; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane), a retrieval specialist; Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge), a gadget and technology wizard; and Parker (Beth Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings. Nate and Sophie had a relationship in the past and are currently in what they believe is a secret relationship again…and one of the cutest non-couple couples on TV (leaning toward being a couple, especially this season) are Hardison and Parker. They are just too cute together.
Last season finale, the group faced off against Victor, the man who was the reason they all got together in the first episode of the series…and the man who killed Nate’s father earlier in the season. With the help of each of their nemises, the group took down two bad guys and got back on a more even keel. This show is a great mix of fun, interesting cases and some great personal stuff, but the main focus is definitely the cases. If you haven’t seen it before, I urge you to watch.
On tonight’s premiere, “The Big Bird Job,” the team decides to go after a shipping CEO who was responsible for a plane crash. They carefully plot to expose him for the dishonest person he is by tricking him into purchasing a massive plane before a merger.
