Numb3rs Season 3 ep 24

The Janus List

I saw the season 3 finale of 'Numb3rs' and believe it to be their best
episode ever (so far). Don and Charlie are confronted by an apparent nutter
with a secret and when they finally learn that the secret is a list of
spies, it threatens to change the team forever. Because a team member is on
the list.

This ep had everything: Don waving a shotgun, a guest spot by James Frain of
'The Tudors', Don and Charlie bonding, Don having a math vision and the
puffy Colby being arrested as a spy. Sure the instigator of the whole plot
could have communicated his message in a less convoluted manner, sure
Charlie finding a pen that writes on glass was very convenient and Don seems
to be have had too much botox.

But all that can be overlooked by the tense brilliance of this ep: Don
punches James Frain, there is a call-back to Don's piano playing, Charlie
mentions his mathvision face. Excellent stuff.
