Leverage hired for a third season on TNT

LeverageGood news for everyone who's ever been screwed by someone in power. Not so good news for everyone in power. TNT just picked up Leverage for a third season, and I couldn't be happier. In the first season, Leverage worked because of the cleverness of the heists the gang got up to. I found myself trying to figure out all the angles they were working, but by the end they still managed to trick me a couple of times.

The second season saw them lose their stately headquarters and tackle these jobs in a much more street level fashion, and in several ways the show got better. At the same time, rather than the heist always taking center stage, at times it was our five characters that shone brightest.

By that I'm referring to the quirks of their individual personalities, because we haven't gotten a great deal of character development this season. The banter and camaraderie within the crew gives us some great lines and moments each week, though. Now that a third season is secured, I'd like to see the character arcs for those great personalities pick up again.

Super ! Love this show ! Hardison's Star Trek references are great. Loved how he explained the good movies/bad movies to Elliot who's response was "I don't watch television." "WrathofKhan, WrathofKhan!!!" during the Fake Hospital ep was hilarious.

Agreed. Leverage has been one of the best shows on television in the past year-plus. The mixed-martial-arts episode it did this year was particularly outstanding.
