About the DVD
“Leverage” Season Five:
“Leverage” focuses on a team led by former insurance investigator turned thief, Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton). Together, they try to level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful. In the final season, the team will be forced to face changing personal dynamics as the relationship between Parker (Beth Riesgraf) and Hardison (Aldis Hodge) heats up, and Nate continues to struggle with inner demons. Among their upcoming jobs, they will target a conniving shipping executive (guest star Cary Elwes); weathly scientist; an ex-hockey-player-turned-team-owner (guest star Treat Williams); a corrupt restaurateur; and a corrupt businessman (guest star Matthew Lillard). In addition, the team will once again face their nemesis, insurance-investigator-turned Interpol-agent Jim Sterling (guest star Mark Sheppard).

My Take on the DVD
As a leverage fan, I was very excited to see this DVD come out (though sad to know that it was the last season too). After watching this I have to say that this was a great finale of a wonderful series (IMHO). In the five seasons that it ran you were taken through an emotional roller coaster, but the writing was strong and you were always given the twists and turns that at least I know that I grew to expect in the series itself. In this season, you get the last 15 episodes and what episodes they were! I also have to commend the writers at sending the series off in the right way and giving viewers the closure that they deserve. This is a great set that any fan will love!
