Leverage: the Complete Second Season DVD Review

Leverage: the Complete Second Season DVD Review




Synopsis: The riveting, clever and thoroughly entertaining series that The Hollywood Reporter called “a flashy hour of fun” returns for another round of righting wrongs when LEVERAGE The Second Season arrives on DVD May 25, 2010 from Paramount Home Entertainment. TNT’s hit drama “Leverage” is averaging 4.4 million viewers and recently ranked as one of ad-supported cable’s top new original series of 2008-09. LEVERAGE stars Oscar®-winner Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People) as the leader of an elite team of thieves, hackers and con artists who act as modern day Robin Hoods by standing up for those who have been victimized by the rich and powerful. In the timely second season, the team takes on corrupt bankers, high fashion, the tabloid media and an old nemesis from their past. The show also stars Gina Bellman (“Coupling”), Christian Kane (“Into The West”), Beth Riesgraf (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and Aldis Hodge (“Friday Night Lights”). In addition, Jeri Ryan (“Star Trek: Voyager”) joins the cast as a special guest star in a continuing story arc as a temporary member of the team. “Leverage” returns to TNT this summer.



The LEVERAGE The Second Season DVD includes all 15 episodes with audio commentary on every episode, a Q&A with the series’ creators, a set tour, a spoof video, the season two wrap party gag reel and behind-the-scenes featurettes. Arriving just in time for the return of season three, the four-disc set will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S.

Review: Leverage had a strong first season where we saw all of the characters come together and develop.  TNT has a great new show on their hands.  We get a band of thieves that are finding redemption, along with their leader, and ex-insurance agent turned rogue, after the company he worked for let his son die.

In Leverage season 2 we see the gang has split up, but gotten back together, sans the beautiful grifter Sophie.  The team welcomes a new member, albeit cautiously, to take her place.  Season 2 of Leverage is a great bunch of episodes and it really helps to progress the series along.  You can pick this one up now, before the third season premieres in late June!
