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.

My Amita Post
I posted this on the Numb3rs board about why people don't like Amita.

We're upset at Amita because Charlie has previously tracked victims' paths in working on other cases, as in the Pilot episode. The fact that he didn't include it in this one - that even the FBI didn't seem to feel like that was an important thing, which made them look just as dense - really came across that Amita was the only one who could have seen that.

And speaking of Amita, did she really think that people weren't going to talk about her and Charlie when she's been involved with him for so long, and she got a job on a committee that apparantly even Charlie and Larry weren't offered. Seriously, if she's that naive about stuff like that ... to me, that's the mentality of a teenager, not someone who's supposed to be more mature.

When Amita becomes more believeable as a person, then I'm sure more people would be inclined to like her. But because some people have decided to make her the one who thinks that anyone who has an opinion that differs from hers is wrong (lambasting Charlie in last week's episode because he was interested in working with the pharmaceutical company); complaining that people are talking about her and Charlie behind her back when she should have known her relationship with Charlie was going to be perceived that way; and all the times she has come in to figure out the solution to a problem immediately after Charlie and Larry have been working on for days, then people are going to get annoyed with her. I know I'm one of them.

Whoever decided that it was okay to make Amita like this, that's perfectly fine - but don't expect everyone to fawn over her. If we don't like someone, that's our opinion, and last time I checked, we're still allowed to voice our opinions.

Place your bets on how long it takes for someone to berate me - extra points if it's Nick or Cheryl.

Re: My Amita Post
Props! :) S'been awhile since I got the guts to tell them what I really think of their princess, and luckily I didn't have to this time; you beat me to it!

I got tired of posting my Anti-Amita opinions there, since people always manage to bring up the jealousy issue (which is complete malarkey) or they turn it around into "Well, my opinion is that your opinion sucks, and since I have just as much freedom of the speech as you, you can't say squat about it, mmkay?"

Oh, believe me, if it ever gets to that point, I'll be telling them exactly what I think of them - and I won't have any regrets doing it. *grins*
