Leverage – 2008-2012 – 5 Seasons/77 Episodes – Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge
Leverage had everything the perfect drama series needed: a hacker, a thief, and a heavy dose of corporate and government conspiracies. This show was originally created, according to producer Dean Delvin, as a way to combat the dark, dry, at times depressing television atmosphere of the late aughts. It was just what we needed in a world where TV seemed determined to depress us. And who doesn’t love the idea of criminals coming together to do good, rebellious Robin Hood deeds on our behalf? Leverage was exciting and dramatic, but still fun, and we miss it dearly.
