I found one of my favorite shows on Netflix, Leverage.

The description on “A crew of high-tech crooks attempt to steal from wealthy criminals and corrupt businessmen.” Basically, they are a modern day Robin Hood and his band of merry men, they steal from the rich and give back to the poor.

The lead, Nate Ford, played by Timothy Hutton was an investigator for a big insurance company and quit when they denied a claim that would save his son. Now, he leads a group of former criminals, the people he used to chase. He is…’The Brains’.

The group consists of Sophie, ‘The Grifter’, someone who swindles ‘the mark’ through deception and fraud. She is amazing with accents, can come up with ideas on the fly, really quick on her feet.

Elliot Spencer is ‘The Hitter’, one guess what that means, let’s just say, I wouldn’t want to cross him or meet him in a dark alley, but I would want him with me in a dark alley. He doesn’t like guns and can disarm someone in the blink of an eye. As the show progresses, some of his hidden talents come out.

Parker, just Parker, is “The Thief’, she is a master at safes, locks and escaping, she can climb, dive, fly and is socially awkward.

Alec Hardison is ‘The Hacker’, he can crack, manipulate, fix anything you set before him.

People who have been wronged and can’t fight “big business” come to the group for help and as the opening says “We provide…Leverage”. They come up with the best cons to get back what was taken and take down the corporate bad dude.

As they say, “sometimes the best bad guys make the best good guys”

It’s a feel good show. I love it and when an episode is over…I feel good.
