Numb3rs- The Janus List

Filed under: Doodles, Blabs and Rants — didee @ 5:39 am

Amazing! (I heart Numb3rs)

I just finished watching the season 3 ender of Numb3rs. And I’m telling you, it’s a must see ending. It’s entitled The Janus List, and it’s full of unexpected twists and turns. Who would have thought that *bleeeeeep* was a double agent?? (hahahah… for the fans of this series, see im not that bad at handing out spoilers! ) 🙂

I have always been a fan of Numb3rs ever since season1 and this latest season’s ender, i guess, would top my fave list for this TV show. Just Superb!

I had a copy of the first 8 episodes for this season. Then when i realized that the final episode (ep24) was already available… well… i watched it first! ahahaha. I’ll try to secure my copy of episodes 9-23 later. Bwahahaha. Well, as of this writing, episodes 18-23 are now in my safekeeping.

The plot was a about an American (or was it Brit?) International Spy who compiled a list of double agents who were trading information between two opposing countries at a high price. So basically they are traitors. Info’s like the names of federal witnesses, safe houses, and other classified information. He named the list, The Janus List, thus the title.

The exposure of this list would cause the downfall of various government agencies (CIA, FBI, etc.) to whom the double agents are affiliated with. Kinda reminds me of Alias style, where Sydney Bristow works as a double agent between the CIA and a wannabee CIA agency.

The man who compiled this Janus list is a hardcore agent, spy , and a well-known cryptographer. And you’d be grinning ear to ear at how he communicated with Charlie and Don through codes.

The next time i receive a binary code (series of zeroes and ones, the very basic building blocks of machine code) , perhaps there’s a code hidden somewhere there. Code reads : You just won a round trip ticket to a destination of your choice! LOL! Now that would be fun. hehehe 🙂

‘Nuf talk. Go watch now! 🙂

P.S : Janus was the Roman god of gates and doorways, depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions. Good choice of Symbolism 🙂

  6. The Janus list was an amazing episode. If you’re thinking about watching numbers, start with season 1 and go in order to the end of season 3. You can get them all on iTunes and seasons 1 and 2 on dvd. I’m kinda sad to see ******* go. He was actually my second favorite agent on the team.

  7. ey krazy3 🙂

    I’ve been an avid Numb3rs fan since first season, I’ve got complete copies of all eps until season 3… 🙂

    But the Janus List eps. is my fave of all. 🙂

    Yeah, there were a few “violent” lol reactions because of ***** departure (and betrayal!) but I’ve heard of talks that they’ll still have him as part of the next season’s release… what’s his place in the story though, that we have to watch out for.

    Thanks for dropping 🙂

  12. to Lady Blue
    the poem is Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967). The Old Huntsman and Other Poems. 1918.

    The Death-Bed

    HE drowsed and was aware of silence heaped
    Round him, unshaken as the steadfast walls;
    Aqueous like floating rays of amber light,
    Soaring and quivering in the wings of sleep.
    Silence and safety; and his mortal shore 5
    Lipped by the inward, moonless waves of death.

    Someone was holding water to his mouth.
    He swallowed, unresisting; moaned and dropped
    Through crimson gloom to darkness; and forgot
    The opiate throb and ache that was his wound. 10
    Water—calm, sliding green above the weir.
    Water—a sky-lit alley for his boat,
    Bird-voiced, and bordered with reflected flowers
    And shaken hues of summer; drifting down,
    He dipped contented oars, and sighed, and slept. 15

    Night, with a gust of wind, was in the ward,
    Blowing the curtain to a glimmering curve.
    Night. He was blind; he could not see the stars
    Glinting among the wraiths of wandering cloud;
    Queer blots of colour, purple, scarlet, green, 20
    Flickered and faded in his drowning eyes.

    Rain—he could hear it rustling through the dark;
    Fragrance and passionless music woven as one;
    Warm rain on drooping roses; pattering showers
    That soak the woods; not the harsh rain that sweeps 25
    Behind the thunder, but a trickling peace,
    Gently and slowly washing life away.
    . . . .
    He stirred, shifting his body; then the pain
    Leapt like a prowling beast, and gripped and tore
    His groping dreams with grinding claws and fangs. 30
    But someone was beside him; soon he lay
    Shuddering because that evil thing had passed.
    And death, who’d stepped toward him, paused and stared.

    Light many lamps and gather round his bed.
    Lend him your eyes, warm blood, and will to live. 35
    Speak to him; rouse him; you may save him yet.
    He’s young; he hated War; how should he die
    When cruel old campaigners win safe through?

    But death replied: ‘I choose him.’ So he went,
    And there was silence in the summer night; 40
    Silence and safety; and the veils of sleep.
    Then, far away, the thudding of the guns.

    hope that helps you
