Felicia Day really started something when she worked up the Geek & Sundry You Tube channel – but Caper, a new webseries from Amy Berg (Eureka, Leverage, Person of Interest) and Mike Sizemore (the stage version of Howl’s Moving Castle), may have exceeded even her expectations.Caper is about a group of superheroes/roommates who, after finding that superheroics don’t pay the rent, decide to go rogue.[...] In "The Cross My Heart Job" (2011), accusation of anti-semitism combines with transphobia in an attempt to flummox airport employees who have noticed that Hardison possesses the (stolen) identification badge of a Black female employee.The humor in this and similar moments works through surprise in the unexpected juxtaposition of Blackness and Jewishness.The complex racial history of Black-Jewish relations—from Jewish slave owners and Blackface minstrelsy to Tin Pan Alley and Jewish support for the Civil Rights Movement—is reduced to the flawed presumption that Blacks are never Jewish (and Jews are never Black).Leverage fandom got off the ground almost as soon as the show premiered, and with the show's largely ensemble cast of five characters to choose from, there is wide interest in het, slash, and femslash pairings.For example, Leverage has used Jewishness (and transness) as props and jokes: Most episodes are like "The Boiler Room Job," where Jewish references are tossed in with little if any relationship to the central plot.For example, computer hacker Alec Hardison (played by African American actor Aldis Hodge), identifies himself as Jewish several times to distract villains or stall for time.
Issues relating to race and the representation of countries other than the U. are troubling to certain viewers: "Its well-meaning white liberal niceness is so far away from the kind of political awareness I demand from anything I am expected to give intellectual acknowledgement to, that I resent it for falling so short." Because of the premise of the show revolving around conning others, and the cast pretending to be people they aren't, stereotypical and joking portrayals of minorities troublingly reoccur.Leverage stars Timothy Hutton as Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator whose life was thrown into turmoil when his own employer refused to fund his dying son's treatment.In the first episode, he takes a job offer from a stranger in a bar and agrees to supervise a team of his former adversaries: Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) is a computer expert and hacker; Parker (Beth Riesgraf) is a thief with a fondness for explosives; Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane) is a "retrieval specialist" who doesn't like guns, but has a way with violence.By 2019, the most popular overall pairing is Alec Hardison/Parker/Eliot Spencer, overtaking both slash and het ships, as well as gen fic.Due to Nate/Sophie and Alec/Parker becoming canon, these two are the most popular het pairings on the show.
Dean Devlin floated the idea for a convention on Twitter and was overwhelmed with positive response from fans.
