Leverage premiering Sunday


My preview of TNT's Leverage is up at DreamLoom:
If you’re a certain age, you might have grown up as I did, watching shows like It Takes a Thief and The Saint. You might even have rooted for David Niven in The Pink Panther. The thief with a heart of gold is the oldest and most revered anti-hero in the storyteller’s pantheon and used to be common on our televisions, but he’s been MIA for a long time. The networks have made a few attempts at reviving the genre with little success; however, the recent growth of original drama on basic cable makes this the perfect time and place to bring back the thief.

So on December 7th, TNT expands its repertoire of original dramas by adding the stylish, charming, and amusing Leverage to its lineup

I am debating if I should give it a try. I thought Christian Kane was good in Angel. And the premise can be fun.

I am really trying to avoid adding anything new to the tv list. Though hey, loads of things I like are getting canceled. So it should free up the schedule, right? *laugh*

It's safe, it's safe! TNT is a nurturing environment right now and the show's quite a bit of fun.
