Netflix Recommendation: Leverage
What the show is about: Leverage follows a five-person team: a thief, a grifter, a hacker, and a retrieval specialist, led by former insurance investigator Nathan Ford, who use their skills to fight corporate and governmental injustices inflicted on ordinary citizens.
Why you should watch: When it comes to Leverage, think Ocean’s Eleven meets Robin Hood with a tiny sprinkle of Parks & Recreation. The reason I was a big fan of Leverage is because it has the classic “Take from the rich/Give to the poor” premise mixed with a lot of action and well-written humor. Another aspect of the show that I’m a fan of is the character development of the main cast seen above. I appreciate the fact that over the course of the series, the team goes from selfish criminals who only care about getting their money to an actual family who would put their lives on the line for one another without hesitation.
You can watch the pilot episode above and if you enjoy that, you’ll definetly enjoy all 5 seasons.
