Yes, I enjoy the show from time to time. Unfortunately it is on Friday night, usually when I am out kicking off my weekend (I have no Tivo or DVR :frown:).

An old professor of mine actually keeps a blog about the show, which you can view here: http://www.atsweb.neu.edu/math/cp/blog/"

It's good to see a TV show/movie about mathematicians that don't depict them as particularly insane.

Great show. I don't have satellite where I live, so I just watch the episodes online. I quit after I watched 4 episodes of Numb3rs in one night. A little much. ;)
