    Why am I watching this?

    Seriously? Numb3rs? What the hell am I doing? This show is so predictable. It's like a train wreck, so I suppose that's why I'm doing it.

    train wrecks are actually interesting and very rarely caught on camera.
    unlike your silly TV programing
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    ehm, let me point out the problems with the show:

    1: title, I know it was kinda fun to catch on with "t3h int3r|\|e7s" during the time, but what you have now is something like the e-, i- and dot names of the day in current trim, which is, out of date.
    2: I haven't heard of this show until now, must not air in Canada.
    3: bogus math, clearly fuelled by running out of source material.

    The math is legit, its all real theories and postulates. Although they write the plot, then find math to add in later.

    The brother with the first class maths degree thinks it's alright(discounting the drivel the scriptwriters come up with for the actors to pad out the theorem/theory/thingummy applicable to that episode). If anything he says it helps when trying to look for left field solutions, i.e., wierd and wacky ways to apply math.

    Personally, judging from the single episode I've watched, it looks like yet another ncis/csi/law&order/fbi files clone.

    Step 1: Sell TV
    Step 2 : Avoid buying another
    Step 3: Repeat step 2
