Leverage – The Future Job

What is Leverage is the first question you should ask. Well it’s a decent enough TV show from TNT. Each episode is essentially Ocean’s 11 in 40 minutes on a weekly basis.

It’s not groundbreaking television by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s one of those mostly brainless shows that I enjoy, and enables me to just relax and not think too much.

Normally I would not post anything about a show like this. I mean it’s fun and all, but it’s not exactly something to write about. That is, until this episode…

Basically the episode is about showing a psychic’s true colors and exposing him for the fraud that he is. They talk about cold reading, hot reading, generalizations, counting the hits and ignoring the misses, etc…

Educational AND enjoyable. Now that is good TV.

(TV-14) The team goes after a con man masquerading as a psychic medium in order to drain the life savings of his bereaved clients.

    I was a regular Leverage-watcher, but this season seemed articularly weak. This episode, though, was a good one.
