I had never heard of the television show called “Leverage: The First Season” before, so was excited to review it on DVD. It was a good show – it kept me interested the entire time watching it. There were some parts that were a little cheesy, but overall, it was a good show! Paramount Home Entertainment releases “Leverage” on DVD on Tuesday, July 14th, 2009.
