Leverage – Reboot

Yesterday I found out Leverage, the television series produced by Dean Devlin, was being rebooted and I thought about the series I loved.

Leverage centres on a team of thieves who steal from, or have arrested usually due to , those who abuse their positions and take from, or somehow harm innocent people. Our team consists of Nathan Ford, leader of the group, Sophie Deveraux, Con Artist and aspiring actor, Eliot Spencer, retrieval specialist who is the team’s ‘hitter’, Parker, cat-thief and Alec Hardison, the hacker. These people do as they say in the intro: They provide leverage!

Throughout the series we see them thinking up ever more imaginative ways to teach the bad guys a lesson and help the victims to get past what has happened to them, whether it’s simply having the bad guys arrested or finding ways to profit from their cons and passing money or other assets gained to those wronged.

The reboot will see Dean Devlin return, and Nathan Ford will be replaced with a new character played by Noah Wyle, so if you have seen the other Dean Devlin show The Librarians then you should probably expect some Flynn Carsen craziness! Although nothing has really been written much about the character yet so I am only speculating based on similarities between both shows. We also get to see his fellow Librarian co-star Christian Kane returning to Leverage.

There are similar types of shows that exist such as Burn Notice, but what makes this series great is the way the team work together so well and do become a family by the end. The World is currently a mess, so just ignore everything else going on and have a Leverage marathon to prepare yourself for the reboot 🙂

Net-Based Broadcasting – Is It Worth Paying For?

I love films. And television shows. My favourite show is The Originals, alongside Supernatural and I’m a big fan of Lucifer. Now we have many options to watch our favourite shows and films, but not that long ago it was difficult to find your favourites using anything other than a torrents site, and I don’t know about you but I don’t like having to download an application just so I can watch a film or show. Browser based is my preference, as it is for zillions of other people.

Being the type of person who loves films and tv shows, is it worth paying for membership of a site such as Netflix or Amazon Prime? I would say yes. I have been a member of Netflix and Amazon Prime and loved having access to their products. I also purchase shows, films, music and books through Google Play, I love it. It’s so convenient being able to download anything I’ve purchased onto my mobile phone.

Like so many other people, I use sites such as Amazon for various purchases, whether it’s for DVDs or for books, you know you can trust them to get your stuff to you. And they also provide a platform for watching the latest films and tv shows. It’s called Amazon Prime and is actually very good. With Amazon Prime you also get other benefits such as One Day Delivery (which is fantastic when you’ve ordered something and don’t want to wait a week for it).
