Video Revue: Providing "Leverage"

January is Geek Month as we welcome in the Age of the Geek! This week, we discuss one of our favorite geeky shows: Leverage!

"Leverage?" you might ask. "What is Leverage, and what makes it geeky?"

"Well," I would answer, "First of all, Leverage is a show on TNT that combines the heists and intrigue of Ocean's Eleven with the techno-geek gadgets of Mission: Impossible and the steal-from-the-rich ethics of Robin Hood. If that's not geeky enough, a recent episode had Wil Wheaton guest-starring as a hacker referred to by the US government as the Kobayashi Maru."*

Also, Leverage was the show that gave us the line "Age of the Geek."

As always, you can find us on iTunes or Podshow.

For all the insider Leverage info, be sure to check out the Kung Fu Monkey blog.

Questions, comments, and spam forwards should be sent to

*"Are you sure Kobayashi Maru is spelled correctly?" you might ask.

"No, I'm not. You are therefore geekier than me," I would reply.

"Thank you. Wait, what?"
