  • Sloppy writing?

    7.0
    This show was, well, it was boring! After the last few shows this one was such a let down! What on earth is going on? Don is the most tortured human being on earth! He needs a padded cell right now! Liz dropped him like a hot potato! But other than that bit of drama the show just fell flat. Things just left too many questions, the story arc was unclear and the ahow was just so not NUMB3RS. I say it was due to sloppy writing. I could be wrong but this was the worst show to date that I have gotten to see. :(moreless
  • Acting helped this episode!

    We see like a Paris Hilton like show. As the heiress is kidnapped so that the father will suffer for what he is doing in sweatshops and other third world countries. But the so-called "kidnapping" isn't what it seems to be. As we find out that indeed people need more money rather than love. But sadly, it will catch up to them in the end that money isn't important at all than what love is. Meanwhile in the love section, seems like Don & Liz are gone for good as Don is heartbroken. But he tries to bury it with his work and all of that.moreless
  • Granted a bad episode of Numb3rs is still better then a lot of TV. Worst episode in it's four seasons.

    It's hard to beat last weeks series classic Primacy. But this was just not a good hour. For the first time ever I was actually reaching for the remote during Numb3rs. I fought the urge and kept watching but at certain times i was seriously regretting it. This episode just lacked the usual chemistry I am used to seeing with this show. Couple that with a bad story and it was seriously off it's game. There were just to many awkward moments. The thing between David and the hostage negotiator. The conclusion of the Don and Liz saga. The only ting that saved this episode from being a total disaster are what makes this show what it is, the math, the Charlie visions and some decent one liners. Not the best, not even close.moreless
  • I really enjoy this one.

    8.5
    I thought the whole "daddy" concept was great. It makes you wonder exactly what some of these "starlets" are dealing with at home. But overall I thought the episode was good. It had a good balance between action, math & crime. Although I can't understand the introduction of the "hostage negotiator" to the scenario. Although I did like the final scene with him and David. The development of Don breaking things off with Liz was the finalization of something a longtime coming. It will be interesting to see if they can keep a professional relationship or if she'll transfer out.moreless
  • good episode...

    8.5
    The team investigates the kidnapping of a rich girl. In the end, however, it turns out that the rich girl wasn't really kidnapped but that she was just tryiny to get back at her father. I thought it as really funny how the father was going to get the best lawyers for her, even after what she did to him. There was some romantic stuff in this episode. Don seems to have relationship problems now. The case in this episode was pretty good, the character development stuff got a little boring, but I did really like the monastery guy's story (I can never remember him name, but he's my favorite character!). Anyways, overall, good episode.moreless
