Back to the show's original excellence
3 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been so disillusioned with Season 4 of numbers that I wasn't sure I'd even watch season 5. Fortunately, the cast and crew pulled it together for a season finale that made the grade for me, renewing my faith in the series.

It was intelligent and gripping, unpredictable and full of pathos and angst. The issues were real and thought-provoking. Krumholtz's superb acting was given a chance to shine. His character was again three dimensional and the others all played against each other beautifully. Even Farr played her character in a way that was both emotional and strong. (She had been positively drippy lately.) The math wasn't over-explained with silly metaphors and some of it was even believable.

This was one of the best episodes of the show ever.
