Leverage: Redemption

In this new iteration and new world, the Leverage crew have watched as the rich and powerful continue to take what they want without consequence. Grifter Sophie Devereaux, thief Parker, hitter Eliot Spencer, and hacker Alec Hardison have watched the world change over the last eight years. Since their last job, it’s become easier–and sometimes legal–for the rich to become richer and the powerful to squash anyone who gets in their way. To address the changes in the world around them, the team finds new blood in Harry Wilson, a corporate lawyer who is looking for redemption after realizing he’d been sitting on the wrong side of the table for his entire career, and Breanna Casey, Hardison’s foster sister who has a knack for computers, robotics, and getting into trouble.

Starring: Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf, Christian Kane, Aldis Hodge, Noah Wyle, Aleyse Shannon

Quick Thoughts: I apologize for the mistake and if it’s any consolation, just imagine me all excited on June 9th looking for Leverage. Anyway, my thoughts have not changed much in a month.

Quick Thoughts: I mean…I’m gonna watch it. Of course I’m gonna watch it and constantly compare these little prep school monsters to the Horny Spanish Murder Teens. If I recall, Serena van der Woodsen’s murder was barely a murder. She just like…watched a guy die who might not have even died. Carla Rosón Caleruega would never.

*sigh*

Listen to me. I sound like those judgmental wolves that crashed Serena and Tripp’s car as revenge for their affair. Oh! I guess Chuck Bass threw his dad off a roof? That counts. *mutters* My Spanish murder babies would have covered it up better though.
