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 »
