|11:19 pm - I love my Numb3rs.|
I've been doing most of my squeeing and discussing about this show on my community real_numb3rs, this season, but this episode deserves some praise on my own journal as well.
Tonight's episode, "One Hour," wasn't strictly a real-time episode (close, though). It didn't need to be. The pacing was fast, the case intricate and intense; the setting was fun (especially for us LA dwellers; Disney Hall for the win!); and there was awesome teamwork and character insights, to boot.
As a solid episode, this is right up there with "Sniper Zero," "Uncertainty Principle," or "Rampage." Imho. :-)
I thumb my nose at all the wet blankets on the forums who were whining about "not enough Don" lately. This was Don's episode, through and through, even if he didn't get in on the action. It was all about how Don sees his team, and himself.
So much love for this show.
(and three cheers for Ken Sanzel, writer of this elegantly constructed episode.)
Current Mood: pleased

Do you have a parallel community for fanfic called imaginary_numb3rs? :) Unfortunately my attempt to give the community name with the proper syntax threw up an error "[Bad username in LJ tag]", which I suppose answers my question.

Ha! No, I don't; but darned if that isn't a great idea. If I ever use it, I'll credit you. :-)
Best of all, I noticed that Don's hair is growing back to a proper length. :D
If Don's hair would stop growing RIGHT NOW I'd be happy. It was way, way short at the beginning of the season, but I've gotten used to it, and it's grown a little, so now when I watch S1 or S2, I'm like, "Wow, Don's hair is long. He needs a cut." *snerk*
I have so many words for this ep. Sarah, now you know why I really wanted to talk about it, but couldn't. Glad you enjoyed. :-)

Whoa. You're right. I was so focused on his face and body language, I didn't really notice. Hee.
