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.

I'm not gonna stop watching, because Amita is only a single, solitary thing on the show that bothers me; there are countless other things that outweigh her presence for me. Plus, I am still hanging on to the smallest shred of possibility that she may leave (because knowing the writers' policy of not getting rid of their characters 'because they love them,' Rawat would have to leave of her own accord and they would have to write in a reason for it. They're not going to send her away or kill her on their own.)

That said, let's get on with the episode: the worries that had spawned when I saw the promo for this episode were well-placed, since Charmita was in the thick of it. From moment one, when Charlie mentioned that neither he nor Larry had ever been offered that position. Well, I wonder why. You guys aren't as perfect as Amita, haven't you learned that yet? Silly Charlie. And remember: it's Amita's role to get wonderful offers that anyone else would work their asses off for, and then turn them down for lame reasons. At least the writers manage to keep the Sofa in character.

I didn't mind Amita's doubts about the job; doubt is good. It's human. It makes her less Sue-y. But all of her Sue points were promptly returned to her when she admits that the doubts are not in her own ability, but because she has the emotional maturity of a high school freshman and can't deal with her peers talking about her behind her back. WAH.

[sarcasm] Luckily, she gets off her ass and takes the job anyway, thus resolving any conflict Charmita might've had and destroying the possibility for them to grow interesting! Good going, Amita! [/sarcasm] It's like watching grass grow and listening to nails down a chalkboard at the same time to watch that crap.

Cut immediately into her solving the simplest problem for him; I'm reminded again of Double Down when the FBI left their brains at home and didn't think to look at the third kid as a suspect when it seemed so fucking obvious. You mean, you have to wonder what the VICTIM was doing too, and not just the bad guy!?! Gee golly whiz! I wonder why! Couldn't possibly have anything to do with where the victim was when they were attacked--

Wait, we did that in the pilot!! Remember the anomaly who was attacked out of the killer's zone? And it turned out she had lied about where she was? Hlysht! It does matter where the victim was!

Am I laying the sarcasm on enough? Or do I need to put my sarcasm tags back on? >(

Thankfully though, Amita's final scene in this ep was blissfully tolerable-- instead, the disgust was returned in the form of Liz Warner, who the more I see her, the less I like her. And I already didn't like her all that much.

*sigh* Hearing me bitch about this episode, you wouldn't think I'd actually liked it. Which I did. Lt Walker makes the world a better place. :D
