Anyone who has been with the series from its start will immediately realize that Leverage: The Second Season isn’t up to par with the writing/production values of its previous season. There were many instances that had me shaking my head and pushing the “Display“ button on my remote to see how much more time remained before the episode was over. Regardless of that, however, most newbies should be able to see why the show has amassed its share of faithful viewers if they start here: it’s good (if relatively brainless) fun.
Paramount Home Entertainment brings Leverage: The Second Season to faithful and potentially new viewers alike, in a four-disc set, which delivers all 15 episodes of the action-packed TBS drama. Being a modern show, the audio and video departments do not disappoint — and the whole season is presented in a 1.78:1 anamorphic ratio with 5.1 Dolby Digital sound.
But the best thing here is the selection of special features (particularly if you’re an enthusiast of the show). First off, every single episode contains commentary with select cast and crew. Also included are a Q&A session, a few behind-the-scenes featurettes, a music video and gag reel, and, most importantly, a spoof entitled “The Hand Job,” wherein actor Aldis Hodge attempts to con his producers out of a pony.
This whole season is worth it for that alone.
