A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Nathan and his team are thieves, and the show's entire point is watching them plan and pull off daring heists. In many ways, the show glorifies their crimes -- but the writers take pains to show why the team's victims deserve to be ripped off. As such, the criminals are portrayed as modern-day Robin Hoods, stealing from the rich and unscrupulous.
Violence & Scariness
Some martial arts fighting, but no blood, gore, or explicit violence. The action is quick and seems relatively painless.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series follows a gang of thieves and con artists as they plan and execute daring heists. The show portrays their victims as unscrupulous people who use their wealth and power to prey on others -- and paints main character Nathan and his colleagues as modern-day Robin Hoods. Still, the show does glamorizes crime, since the entire point of the series is to root for the thieves to succeed. Expect some social drinking and fairly mild violence of the fistfight variety.
Is It Any Good?
The thrill of watching LEVERAGE comes from watching Ford and his colleagues plan and execute their daring heists. The team members have a range of impressive skills, and the jobs blend elements of the best scams, the most nerve-wracking computer crimes, and the most brazen burglaries. They may be criminals, but they're pros, and it's always fun to see experts showing off their skills.
This satisfying and engrossing heist series also adds a layer of altruism. Ford and his team aren't just in it for the money; they target the rich and powerful who take advantage of the less fortunate. Yes, they're breaking the law, but their victims pretty much deserve what they get. It's like Mission: Impossible without the fancy disguises.
