And another thing or two...

"This genius is about to discover... even math... can't stop a bullet." Really? That's shocking. Is that not the stupidest tagline they could've come up with for tonight's episode of Numb3rs?

While I'm here at the CBS site, let me recommend the latest Tom Selleck movie airing this Sunday at 9 PM: Jesse Stone: Death in Paradise. The first two films, also adapted from books by Robert B. Parker, featuring this character were great, so I'm looking forward to this one.

(Apparently it just takes writing a post about not feeling like writing to remind you of stuff you'd like to post.)

  1. Dude, I LOVE Numbers and YES that tagline was the epitome of stupid.

    Although, if properly applied, math probably COULD stop a bullet.

  2. Yeah, I figured someone would counter with the applied bit, but I know you know that trailer wasn't referencing that. They even showed the bullet busting through the whiteboard with equations on it during that voice over... so silly.

  3. Yeah, I can just see someone yelling " 6+9= 15" and the bullet screeches to a stop, falling harmlessly to the floor.

  4. Sometimes that really is all it takes.

    Is it just me or does it seem like CBS has no clue how to effectively market NUMB3RS? It's such a great show, too.

  5. Kevin: That promo in particular made me feel like CBS has no idea who likes to watch Numb3rs.
