Leverage is a fine show with some decent acting (although at times Timothy Hutton seems drunk out of mind and stutters) but this episode drifted too much. The only really enjoyable scenes involved Hardison and Eliot as their conversations about spilled slurpees and computer wires never grow old.
The allusion to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was obvious, although not nearly as enjoyable as the classic movie (anything beats reading the book, or any book for that matter). The old guy who was barely audible was a nice touch though.
It just seems like Leverage is running out of ideas to base heists on. This story had several plot holes in it which also hurt my score.
