  • Well written Numb3rs episode

    First of all, I have to say-I'm so glad to finally see Larry back! I didn't realize I missed the guy THAT much =) Though he wasn't a lot in the episode, his role was once again important to the whole plot.

    The things I enjoyed most about the episode : * The computer kicking Charlie out =) that was fun
    * Don and Larry being all protective of Charlie and his brains
    * Charlie and Amita working together
    * Alan being all passionate about the b.ball
    * The whole concept of the episode. It was interesting and though I kinda guessed from the beginning that the wife is the killer, I never would have guessed that the guy and the tech. were actually lovers. Well written and well acted guys

    The things I didn't like...well there were none. I know I maybe should miss Nicki (or however her name is written) coz she wasn't once again in the episode, but truth is, I just don't really like her character that much. Megan was so great (and even Terry in the first season), that I don't really see any need in another female agent (and we already have Liz as a regular). So, I'm willing to give this episode the whole 10 points coz that was a great, well written, interesting episode
  • A.I. Not...

    I love the concept of artifical intelligence. To me I think it's very believable with the way technology is advancing. But how the episode was written it was very well done, especially given the government a basis for it's research. I thought it was a clever twist having Karellen not only offer Charlie a job but she is a link to Larry. I think the only thing that had me shaking my head was the true motive behind the scientist and his assist's murders. I found some pretty powerful scenes throughout the episode. Amita's disappointment is AI not truly being established as well as Larry and Don's confrontation of Karellen in efforts to protect Charlie and do what's best for him. I'm glad to see Coach Ebbs taking the reins of the CalSci basketball team and can't wait to see what he does.
