I haven't seen the latest series, but of course I love Numb3rs, and fancy the pants off Charlie ;) Sometimes you end up wincing at how much Charlie and Larry have to dumb science down for the others (e.g. their explanation of ionising radiation) but I like the interesting and sympathetic portrayal of intelligent and geeky people. I'm sure some people just find it humorous, but I like that it's not portrayed solely as 'lol, look at the bumbling geek'. I empathise heavily with the need to understand and explain and model.
Also, I love the family dynamic between Charlie, Don and Alan. They're all so sweet together!
If you believe everything you read, better not read.
