    Well, I liked it. I thought it was excellent. I was surprised that they didn't use Bill Nye more, but hey, quality over quantity. I'm glad that they didn't make the mistake of overusing him and I look forward to seeing him in future episodes of the show.

    Some very interesting math and facts in this one. One thing I really like about the show is how they can start out with all the procedural-crime-drama type stuff and then get into the deep math.

    I didn't care for it that much. I knew who the arsonist was right off the bat. I'm never right on this show, and that's one of the things I like about it. If I can guess who it is without 2nd guessing myself a half dozen times, then the writers haven't done their jobs.
    I felt that the only reason why they wrote this episode was so that Bill Nye could make an appearance. And while I like "The Science Guy" as much as the next person, I don't think that's a good enough reason to write a poorly constructed episode.
    About the only thing I enjoyed about this episode was Alan walking in the bathroom to take a shower and finding Larry and Charlie sitting in the tub together. (Well, on the edge of the tub, anyway. )
    Oh, and why did they have to show that gross corpse over and over again? I hope that they aren't feeling that they have to be just as gross as the CSI's. That's why I stopped watching them.

    Unfortunately fire bugs are often members of a fire department. And, yes, it is their fellow officers who are most at risk. I liked it, esp. that Charlie's problems at a younger age were brought up and used as part of the criminal investigation. And I liked the end when Charlie and Don were trying to work together on the shower. Isn't it amazing how much easier it is to screw something on that it is to get it off?

    However, I am afraid that they are trying to live up? to the CSI's image. I don't like the gross stuff myself. I watch Miami but cannot bring myself to watch New York.

    I loved it! It's been said...so i'm just agreeing, but I'm glad they didn't overuse Nye. I thought the math was fantastic...the writers are doing a better job of using math, but still making it understandable to the viewers. The bathtub moment was priceless. I also really liked the other kid that Charlie related to. Slightly off-topic...but was anyone else surprised at "Twitty's" role and how well he did? Basically, I loved the entire thing. I love how they've started ebding the shows with the Eppes boys doing something together. I also loved...wow...I could go on and on!

    Of course, the idea of someone in the fire department being the arsonist has been done before, in the movie Backdraft for example, but nothing's really new. It certainly didn't ruin my enjoyment of seeing this version.
    I did enjoy the scene with Larry and Charlie in the bathroom and also Charlie and Don fixing the faucet. But I really liked the garage scene. Allen automatically reverted to being the "father in charge of the house" completely forgetting that the house, and garage, now belong to Charlie and he can do whatever he likes to them. As a parent of grown children I can really relate to how hard it is to always remember that you're not in control anymore. It was like laughing at myself.

    The best one of those 'forgetful moments' is when Alan offered for that old friend to get married in the house. That was so funny!

    Personally I was dissapointed. I thought there was no math, for once Numb3rs was predictable (I figured out who it was in the beggining which I NEVER do. So I am hoping that OG will be better. I did like the end scence though that was funny. And yeah the kid Charlie was talking to moment was awsome.
