I watched a few episodes, and really quite liked it, but I think because I didn't have a TV after that point, I never really caught back up with it. I liked the basic premise, especially the way it tried to go "hey, look, you can use the complex maths you learn in late high school or college in real life" which, you know, awesome, but at the end of the day, it was basically a maths-based version of every other murder-mystery TV programme. Eventually, and somewhat ironically for Numb3rs (I think), it becomes predictable. That could be a slight tendency of mine towards solving the mystery rather than connecting with the characters, thoughthaen wrote:Has anyone else seen Numb3rs?

Me, too, but partly because I had a David Krumholtz thing going on (particularly post-haircut). If I had to quibble, it would be that it, like many shows of the time, shot a lot in blue filter and/or the bleached-out overexposed photograph look (perhaps a palette symptomatic of the contemporary economic crisis? very edgy). At least Numb3rs made it a distinction; the FBI building scenes are shot in blue filter, while the home scenes are in warm, rich, ochre-infused tones. I thought we'd moved on beyond that trend, but TV5 Monde likes to play (rehash? haven't noticed the copyrights) Canadian dramas late at night. Québecois seem to just refuse to be happy. Angst-ridden; in blue filter; low, disturbing, unending bass drone punctuated by single, high piano notes like tinkling icicles; stifling burden played out in utterly irredeemable joual. Geez, could you people smile, without souffrance or irony, once in a while? Pour yourself a bowl of glass shards to munch on as you wade into the tortured winterscapes, even en plein été, of Quebecker daily life...sangi39 wrote:I watched a few episodes, and really quite liked it,thaen wrote:Has anyone else seen Numb3rs?

I quite liked him. I liked the personality and the combination of "dark" and "a bit mental in that clumsy way the mad are" I mean, post-Time War Doctors probably should have that dark element to them, what with having done what he did, but I think Matt Smith's Doctor was a nice move on from David Tennants.Lambuzhao wrote:Watching a slew of Matt Smith DW.
