End Watch = End of Watching?  
My beef with Amita just seems to grow with every week.

First of all, and AGAIN, Charlie can't do jacks*** without Amita coming in and say 'you're missing something, and it's up to me to make sure you find it.' Anyone with half a brain would know to track a victim as well as a suspect - that's FORENSICS 101; not only did Charlie look stupid, but so did the FBI.

Second, Amita whining about people talking about her and Charlie. Um, let's see ... you're dating your former thesis advisor, and you're working in the same school as he is. Did you honestly think that people were NOT going to talk about you?

Oh, wait, I forgot ... you're little Miss Naive Mary Sue Who Never Does Anything Wrong And Has A Martyr Heart Of Gold.

*rolls eyes*

Episode should be 'End of Watching,' because I am so very close to ending MY watch of the show. What they've been doing lately is making obtaining samples of DNA in a few minutes on CSI look realistic.

You guys might get a kick out of this. Some other poster posted a response, and I replied:

Everyone needs help with now and then. Of course Charlie needs help in some situations to see that there is a peice of data of a point of view that he is missing. Genius or not he is human. As for Amita (since Larry is off in space) always being the one who helps him...his father has also pushed him in the right direction a few times. It also stands to reason that Amita would be there more often than not since they work together and are a couple. What a boring man Charlie would be ( not to mention a little sad) if he didn't have a special someone. I like this pairing, even though at times it does seem a little stiff. Maybe they don't have a "real" chemistry in reality. It's possible that some of the lines they are given don't seem viable for that character. However, they are actors doing what they are told. They do a great job. Otherwise no one would care about this show. Apparently many of us do. So lighten up on the couple bashing. It keeps them real.

Well, actually, the entire relationship IS stiff. The only couple on the show with good chemistry is Larry and Megan's relationship; I enjoy seeing the two of them together, because they aren't trying to change each other. Every week, Amita seems to be finding something wrong to point out of Charlie instead of accepting him for who he is and trying to work around those faults and doesn't berate him for having opinions that differ from his.

And, yes, Alan has pushed him, but Amita comes in and says (in so many words) 'you're doing this wrong or you forgot to include something that should be so obvious.' There's a BIG difference between pushing and telling.

And if Charlie and Amita were a real couple in real life, then it wouldn't make a difference. We'd actually still not like Amita for treating Charlie so badly, because I have yet to see Amita actually admit she was wrong about something or say 'I'm sorry.' We've seen Charlie do it all the time, because Charlie seems to be the only one who has faults and all the relationship problems they have are because Charlie is the cause of them. When Amita becomes more believable as a person, then we'll stop with the criticizing, because bashing would imply that we have an irrational and unjustified hatred for this character when, in fact, we are simply voicing our opinions on what many of us agree to be a very poorly-written and totally unbelievable character.

I honestly can't wait to see what responses I get from that. :)

Nicely done, again. :D

That part, I really appreciate. Well-worded. Criticizing =/= bashing and/or flaming, and it's disheartening when you think of how many people don't realize that.
