The show has potential, but needs to cut down on the silliness. Bruce Campbell was great, but during the whole episode my family and I kept asking, "why didn't they just give him back his hat?" I also have a really hard time understanding the Asian guy, what accent is that anyway? Is it British, or over the top Australian? I know people with both accents, and I have no trouble understanding them, which makes me think this is some weird made up accent.
It had some fun parts, but the plot was ridiculous. Nick "figuring out" that the composite sketch came from the in flight magazine was just plain stupid. I know the plots of Leverage are completely implausible, but is Nick supposed to now be clairvoyant? That really put a damper on this episode.
On the bright side, I liked this episode much more than National Treasure, which bored me silly (plus Nicholas Cage as an action hero is just ridiculous). I thought the Mozzie back-story was eye-rolling. The smooth villain was an idiot----we're to believe he is sociopath who thinks nothing of murder, only to let his hostages run away so he can shoot harmlessly at them? White collar is usually better than this, but there have been some real stinkers this season.
