    I've been enjoying BURN NOTICE and LEVERAGE lately. Like you say, not perfect or super-hardboiled, but they do have their moments of grit and are both fun time-wasters. Tim Hutton's character in LEVERAGE bears some relation to Matt Scudder and other similar hard-boiled types. IN PLAIN SIGHT & LIE TO ME I've never watched. Maybe I should give them a try.
