Leverage: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Leverage: Season 1 (2008-2009)




Critic Consensus: Leverage is uneven and occasionally illogical, but its twisty, exciting plotting make for a caper series that's compelling and watchable.

Tv Season Info

Disillusioned Nathan Ford (Timothy Hutton) walks away from his lucrative career as an insurance investigator and joins a small team of thieves and con-artists who have devoted their lives to stealing from the corrupt powerbrokers at the top of the financial food chain and helping the common people they seek to exploit. Adopting the name "Leverage Consulting & Associates", the team uses their cunning to help a desperate horse trainer who's fallen victim to a dirty Wall Street broker, expose a corrupt county court judge, and ultimately setting their sights on Ford's former boss Ian Blackpoole (Kevin Tige), who's greed previously resulted in the death of Ford's son.

Critic Reviews for Leverage: Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (12)

The new TNT drama Leverage isn't a great show, but it may just be the exact right show at the exact right time.

December 7, 2008 | Full Review…

Once TNT's new Leverage scrambles to its feet, it becomes an adept, fast-moving adventure yarn built on the familiar but serviceable premise that justice sometimes isn't best served through legitimate channels.

December 7, 2008 | Full Review…

It's tempting to see Leverage, TNT's new drama series, as populist wish fulfillment during the recession.

December 7, 2008 | Full Review…

It's difficult to imagine many viewers continuing to tune in when there's so little to recommend about this show that threatens to become unbearably repetitive.

December 7, 2008 | Full Review…

The trouble with Leverage is that it isn't nearly as angry as we are.

December 7, 2008 | Full Review…

Leverage is far from great TV and not even close to really good TV.
