Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane Writers: John Rogers & Chris Downey Director: Dean Devlin Network: TNT Original Telecast: December 25, 2012 It’s very frustrating that TNT decided to burn off the remaining episodes of Season 5 of LEVERAGE and do very little promotion with it. And then they went and cancelled it last week, with little fanfare. Even worse,  the series finale aired on Christmas night! Way to burn off an exceptional action series and make sure few people actually see it conclude properly. That little bit of anger aside, LEVERAGE wrapped up its …Read On »

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Aldis Hodge Writer: John Rogers Director: John Rogers Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 14, 2012 With the Leverage team’s operations in Boston in shambles after Season 4, Season 5 of LEVERAGE picks up as the team is regrouping once again – this time in the city of Portland, OR (where the show is actually filmed). All their aliases are moot, they have to lay low and they have a new headquarter base at a micro-brewery  — courtesy, as always, of Hardison (Aldis Hodge). With “The (Very) Big Bird Job, …Read On »

Scott Veach, Rebecca Kirsch Director: Jonathan Frakes Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: August 25, 2011 There’s nothing like finding an old friend on a series like LEVERAGE and as “The Queen’s Gambit Job” wraps up the Season 4 summer finale (more episodes air in November), the series brings back the team’s constant nemesis Jim Sterling (Mark Sheppard). Most of the time Sterling is there to thwart the team’s various jobs, but this time, he needs to enlist them for reasons that we later learn are far …Read On »

As LEVERAGE wraps up the summer portion of Season 4 (with a return of regular antagonist Jim Sterling played by Mark Sheppard), ASSIGNMENT X chatted with star Aldis Hodge who plays hacker Hardison on the series. Throughout the course of the TNT series, Hardison has went from wise-cracking loner to someone who is finally accepting that he’s part of a team. He also has feelings for the somewhat closes off Parker (Beth Riesgraf) which has been gaining some traction the past couple of seasons. Here’s what Hodge had to say about the latest developments. ASSIGNMENT X:  So Sterling is finally …Read On »

TV Review: LEVERAGE – Season 4 – “The Hot Potato Job”

Gina Bellman and Christian Kane in LEVERAGE - Season 4 - "The Hot Potato Job" | ©2011 TNT/Erik Heinila

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Mitch Pileggi, Bhanna Peget Writer: Jenn Kao, series created by John Rogers & Chris Downey Director: John Harrison Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 24, 2011 LEVERAGE’s “The Hot Potato Job” is decent enough – it literally involves a stolen (i.e., hot) potato, so points up front for a good title, as well as smart casting in employing Mitch Pileggi as the big bad of the week. However, given that this is the episode where team leader Nathan (Timothy Hutton) and longtime unconsummated/then consummated-but-pretending-it’s-no-big-deal love interest Sophie …Read On »

TV Review: LEVERAGE – Season 4 – “The 15 Minutes Job”

Beth Riesgraf and Michael Gladis in LEVERAGE - Season 4 - "The 15 Minutes Job" | ©2011 TNT

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Michael Gladis, Leon Rippy Writer: Josh Schaer Director: Marc Roskin Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 10, 2011 The title of LEVERAGE’s episode “The 15 Minutes Job” refers to Andy Warhol’s oft-quoted saying about the amount of time everybody supposedly will have to be famous. The plot concerns a neat reversal, where instead of going after famous bigwigs abusing their power, Nate (Timothy Hutton) and friends find themselves going up against a foe who is pretty similar to the LEVERAGE team in his methods. Nate is approached …Read On »

While accepting Dr. Donald A. Reed Award at the 37th Annual Saturn Awards presented to him by longtime collaborator Roland Emmerich, writer-director-producer Dean Devlin spoke with ASSIGNMENT X about  the fourth season of LEVERAGE (airing Sunday nights on TNT) and what to expect this summer. ASSIGNMENT X: “The 10 L’il Grifters Job” is such a great concept for a LEVERAGE episode … especially with the nod to Timothy Hutton’s dad Jim Hutton who played Ellery Queen [in the 1975 TV series of the same name]. DEAN DEVLIN: Everyone in that episode got to dress up as their favorite detective, so …Read On »

TV Review: LEVERAGE – Season 4 – “The 10 Li’l Grifters Job”

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, William Russ Writers: Geoffrey Thorne Director: Arvin Brown Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 3, 2011 The LEVERAGE episode “The 10 Li’l Grifters Job” feels like it wanted to be a telefilm. It certainly has all the elements – an Agatha Christie set-up, schemes within schemes and Nate (Timothy Hutton) having a whole new worry about what his friends think of him. However, in a one-hour time slot (with plenty of commercials), there simply isn’t time to do justice to what’s here. In “Grifters,” Nate and the …Read On »
