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.

Bkwrm again.
What bothers me more than Super! Amita is Victim! Amita.
Here's a post I did for TWOP, in response to the "poor victimized Amita, why is she with insensitive Charlie" posters.

Why is Amita with Charlie? Hmmm... because she CHOSE to be? Charlie's no Svengali, hypnotising helpless Amita into doing his bidding.

Perhaps he should have told her, "Go to Harvard, it's better for your career." But if she needs him to tell her what to do, then she wouldn't have gotten very far at that job, either.

I don't understand why so many seem to discount *Amita's* responsibility in this situation. She *chose* to be in a relationship with Charlie. She *chose* the job at CalSci for herself, (supposedly). Actually, if she did choose to stay for him, then that’s not his responsibility. He’s not her teacher. He’s not her advisor. It’s not his job to make her career, it’s hers.

We’ve been told over and over and over again that Amita is a grown, confident, professional woman. What we’ve seen is a different story.

The way I see it, Amita has a couple of choices:
Take Larry and Millie’s excellent advice, grow a spine and assume responsibility for her own career, or:
Continue to sit around in her student clothing and her student persona, and her ‘poor l’il me, no one takes me seriously, it’s all Charlie’s fault’ attitude.

Frankly, I’m betting on the second choice.
