TNT's Leverage earned its spot on my list of monthly must haves because it seems like a perfect show to watch with your feet up and a frosty drink in hand. The series focuses on a band of well-meaning criminals, each with a particular skill that lets them rob the rich, fix injustice, and possibly make some money for themselves along the way. The mastermind of the operation is Nathan Ford (Timothy Hutton), a man with a checkered past and a drinking problem that's supposedly under control when this new season begins.
The show returns to TNT on July 15, with Nathan grudgingly bringing the team back together for yet another mission. Even if you didn't watch the first season, it shouldn't be hard to dive in — the producers have tried not to make a show that loses you after one missed episode. But just in case, TNT's put together a season one recap video that introduces the characters and shows off their skills. Will you give this show a shot next week? You can watch the recap and a first sneak peek of the season two premiere if you read more.
