  • A much better episode than last week! A WONDERFUL ending!

    A pretty good episode, much better than last weeks! The crime was a little hard to follow but interesting none the less. The characters were all top notch! Don has gotten so much more sure of himself and leads in a much more confident way this season which I really enjoy. His defense of Charlie at the end was one of my favorite moments ever. Also him asking Robin to stay and thus indicating sticking with her was wonderful. Don shined in this episode in my opinion. I loved how Charlie was able to help out by helping the LAPD, much better than depending on Larry and Amita! Him defending Don was also a high point of the episode for me. David suprised me, he's usually not a favorite, but he was really great in this one! Now Colby.... I was very dissapointed with him, he had better redeem himself in the next episode cause he made me angry! And Nikki, I still don't like her, she's way to sassy, though Don does a good job of keeping her in line. ;) All in all I liked the characterization more than the crime itself, but the characters are what makes Numb3rs special! Hopefully next week Charlie'll be back! :D
