"The Long Way Down Job" had a lot of potential, but I feel that they really dropped the ball with this episode. Not enough focus on the mountain, the altitude, the avalanche, things like that, and too much attention on the intricacy of the con. People watch CSI for those details, but with Leverage we already know we're going to get the explanation at the end so I'd rather see some innovative things along the way than a structured plot.
It wasn't just that they misused the mountain as the con itself was pretty dull. I'm glad to have Leverage back after six months on hiatus, but this was a disappointment. Too CBS for my liking, and not as fun and light-hearted as I had hoped for.
