Leverage Season 1 Episode 5 (S01E05)

Doesn't the show remind just a little bit of Smith? I loved the show but just like every other show it got canceled. Well watching the first episode of Leverage reminded me straight away of Smith. The only difference I think is that Leverage is not as dry and upscale then Smith. Leverage comes with funny scenes and more down to earth characters. I think the characters in leverage are way more interesting as the ones from Smith ever where. I must say I think Ray Liotta made Smith interesting and watchable here every single one brings something to the table! One of the best things about the show is just when you think they get caught they get out and go their way. Perfect! I hope this one runs for a long time!!!!!

This Episode details from TNT:

Nathan walks into Imperial Valley Bank in Juan, California, a desert town, with Judge Roy, a corrupt, egocentric, and completely inappropriate man. The judge hands Nathan a briefcase full of thousands of dollars after what seems like a very long courtship. Nathan has been running a con on him for two weeks—Roy thinks they’ve set up a money laundering scam, but Nathan intends to bankrupt him. To help him, Sophie has been playing the part of a banker. Across the street in a sweltering van, Hardison complains about agreeing to do a “rip deal.” He thinks they take too long, especially when it has to take place in a town hotter than hell in the middle of nowhere. Parker, who likes Juan, calmly explains that it takes a long time to convince the mark that he’s getting deal so that they can then rip him off. She lights what looks to be pages from a ledger on fire. When Hardison places a call to Eliot to confirm that he’s shutdown all of their fake addresses and p.o. boxes, it becomes clear that they’re all destroying evidence of ever having worked in Juan. They think that they’ll soon be free to leave Juan with Roy penniless…

So far I must say this one was my favorite episode so far. Make sure to watch the next episode!
