Let’s talk TV entertainment for a moment.

I make a conscious effort to stay away from many of the brain-dead reality shows that, in my opinion, plague the airwaves today (I won’t mention any show by name, but I’m certain you can build a mental list of shows matching that description).

What I do tend to watch are shows that actually provide INFOtainment (information and entertainment). Lately, I’ve been stuck on one channel – TNT.

There are some awesome shows on TNT, that I’m just getting introduced to this season, that I now simply have made a point to not miss – the DVR is recording all day. My latest show on a continual rotation is Leverage.

This show follows the adventures of a highly skilled team out to settle scores against those who use power and wealth to victimize others. The gang is led by former insurance investigator who got involved in the con business after his former employer refused to pay for treatment that could have saved his son’s life. His highly skilled team includes a grifter who uses her acting skills to corner her marks; a “retrieval specialist” with bone-crunching fighting skills; a gadget and technology wizard who keeps the team informed; and a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings or squeezing into tight places.

They’ve recently started their third season and I’m seeing nothing but forward momentum with this show.

I say that all for a couple of reasons; we here at INFOtainment News have teamed up with Turner Entertainment to offer you, our readers a special Leverage prize just for checking out the show and answering a few trivia questions.

First here is the cool prize:

Safecracker PC Video Game

Product Description

As an expert safecracker, you are hired by the wealthy family of a recently deceased billionaire to search for the last will and testament of their late relative, Duncan W. Adams. An avid safe collector and an “eccentric” to say the least, Adams has hidden the deed to his riches in one of the 35 safes scattered in his extravagant mansion. The stakes are high. Use your expertise, wits, and puzzle solving skills to crack them all and earn your pay check!

Here’s how we’ll pick a winner. In the comment section of this post please answer the following questions:

  1. What is the name of the pub that the Leverage offices are above ?
  2. What was the name of Parker’s “father” ?
  3. What instrument does Alec Hardison, played by Aldis Hodge, play in real life?

Answer 2 out of 3 and you’ll be placed in a random number generator for the prize.

The Rules (there’s always fine print):

  • Follow @jameshicks on Twitter
  • Contest is open to US contestants only (sorry about that !)

Once we choose a winner we’ll send you a DM via Twitter for your address since your prize is being supplied by and shipped directly by the Leverage team at TNT ! Yeah we’re fancy like that !!

Good luck and check out the show.
