. . . the [Leverage] gang is back with more elaborate scams designed to exact revenge against those who use power and wealth to victimize people. [Timothy] Hutton stars as Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator determined to bring down the kind of corrupt bigwigs whose neglect led to the death of his son. His highly skilled team includes Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman – Coupling), a grifter who uses her acting skills to corner her marks; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane – TNT’s Into the West), a “retrieval specialist” with bone-crunching fighting skills; Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge – Friday Night Lights), a gadget and technology wizard who keeps the team connected and informed; and Parker (Beth Riesgraf – Alvin and the Chipmunks), a slightly off-center thief adept at repelling off buildings or squeezing into tight places. Together, the team puts their energy, quick minds and keen intellects toward securing justice for society’s underdogs.1

2 Since this is a Guide to Leverage on LiveJournal, I don’t normally include off-LJ links, but since we’re still a small fandom, and there appears to be a lot of interest in the blogs and such, I figured, the more Leverage links, the better. I’ll revisit this decision when I make updates to the Guide in future, if it appears the size of the Guide is getting out of hand. Please note that I will not be scouring the ‘net for off-LJ links, but if they’re announced on LJ, then I’ll include them. Thanks.
