|11:21 pm - Very quick: CSI & Numb3rs|
I'm exhausted. Even after a two-hour nap post-work. Headed to bed, but wanted to squee for a moment.
CSI this week ("A La Cart")--strong return to form, with an unusual amount of character interaction.
I <3 Grissom, Greg, and Nick being geeky together.
Anyone else think Greg might be telling the truth when he implies to Nick that he knew that Sara and Grissom were a couple? I had this thought from Greg's non-reaction during the finale last season.
Cheesy ending, but I loved it. Team outing! :-)
Weird lighting effects to show what was going on during the flashbacks in the totally dark restaurant. I didn't like it.
My Sara/Grissom soul is happy. For now. Interesting choice of song to end the ep; wish I knew what it was.
TVGuide.com now has a Numb3rs Show Blog (a recap)! Finally, it's a popular enough show. Good insights from the blogger this week about the episode's theme (continued from last week): identity.
I'm gonna write a proper review later. For now:
Colby is love.
Megan is awesome.
*hugs Charlie and Larry to bits*
Liz can, uh, go somewhere far away, really.
And the writers of this show? Consistently live up to my expectations. In the best ways possible. *fangirls them* After the unusual season opener, this was a strong, character-heavy, plot-driven episode. Bodes well for the season to come!
"Food for thought."
"Bon apetit." HEE!
Current Mood: exanimate
Unless I'm much mistaken, the CSI closing song was Placebo's cover of Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill. I liked it so much I bought the .mp3 this afternoon. Though I don't know that it bodes well for Sara/Grissom; it's not exactly a shiny, happy song.
Oh, thank you! That sounds right; I knew I'd heard the lyrics before but the song itself sounded different. Also I was too tired last night to remember enough lyrics to Google the thing. Heh.
And no--not a shiny happy song. *sigh* I shall enjoy the Sara/Grissom while it lasts, because I see angst coming.
OT: Thank you for coming to visit yesterday! I hope you made it home safely and without needing too much auditory stimulation to stay awake. And thank you for the loan of so much wonderful TV! We shall enjoy muchly.
I understand she has brought you into the N3 fold. Mwahahahahaha!!!! *eh-hem*
When you're appropriately caught up, do join us at real_numb3rs
. I would enjoy a discussion about 1st Season N3 (which has some of my fave eps), and various wonderful plots and peril in Season 2, and the whole awesomeness of the character archs in Season 3.
Planning on it! I definitely like the show. It's nice to take a break from sci-fi shows every now and then, if only so that I can watch a pilot and first season that are not mostly a test to fine-tune the crack level. And also I have decided that flak vests are my new favorite item of attire on the menfolk. Rowr.
Please just tell me that at some point, Charlie has the good sense to lose the sideburns. Long hair + sideburns = no.

LOL! I never thought about the genre difference, but it's true; a lot of scifi shows take at least a season to find their stride, while there are several mainstream shows (including Numb3rs and Alias) that I love from the pilot on.

IS SO TRUE. (Hmph, I have no Fibbies-in-Kevlar icons. Must remedy that.)
Yeah, sci-fi shows seem to take longer than more mainstream stuff to get off the ground. I don't know what it is. It's like the writers sit in a room the entire season and go "Okay, will the audience buy this much crack? Yes. Okay, how about this much? This much? Okay, that was too much, let's have fewer women in gold bikinis from now on."
If you decide to join real_numb3rs
, you can read how Izhi and I got involved in the show. I saw theh previews, recognized Rob Morrow from Northern Exposure, and when I watched it, I discovered that canon Charlie was very much fanon Blair (from TS). It thought it would be popular with the TS fandom. I figured I'd like the brother/buddiness of it, and the fact that I'm the daughter of a math teacher and sister to a math geek didn't hurt either. (I'm convinced that's one of the big reasons I relate to Don--I understand the whole "younger brother is smarter than me" vibe. Don has actually had lines, like apologizing for stuff done to little sib as children, that make me go, "Hey! I've said that! Or a variation of that, anyway."
It was my pleasure! Seriously, I had loads of fun--it's neat to be around a bunch of geeks of all ages; made me miss my own family a bit more than usual.
Next time I visit, remind me to bring something to contribute to the meals. I'm not a very good guest in that sense, at times! :-) I second Felicia's invite to real_numb3rs
, if you get interested enough. The more, the merrier!
Hey, you bring us pure, uncut crack in DVD form, we feed you! But if you want to bring dessert or something next time, I've never been known to say no to...well, any dessert, really. Heh.
Noted: will bring sugar along with crack next time. :-D
