Did You Know?


The 64 hexagrams of the I Ching can be interpreted numerically in at least two different ways. First by the numbers assigned to the diagrams in the Book of Changes from 1 to 64 and second as a series of binary numbers ranging from 0-63. The binary interpretation can, in turn, be interpreted in two different ways depending on which type of line is interpreted as a 0 or a 1. See more »

Bodies on the beach
29 May 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Surfers arriving at a desolate beach discover the body of a young woman in a tangle of sea weed. Looking to the water, they see more bodies floating. The FBI is called to the scene. Only one woman is not dead, but she is in bad condition. They are all Chinese, which gives the investigating team a clue as they appear to have been trying to enter the country illegally. When the autopsies of the dead women is done, the coroner discovers one was carrying avian flue, something that is highly contagious.

Charlie tries to make sense of the tattoo one of the dead Chinese has on the sole of her foot. Larry, thinking it is connected to the famous I Ching book, but in fact Amita realizes it is a telephone number. When they call, a woman's voice identifies herself. In her answering message she tells about having already been killed. In fact, she turns out to be a newspaper reporter who had gone to China to try to discover the illegal source that sends these young women to the country as prostitutes.

The bureau asks Charlie to try to identify, using his algorithms, which container from two Chinese container ships that had recently arrived at the Los Angeles port. Charlie is a bit shaken when Amita announces the possibility of accepting a post at Harvard University, something he did not think she would do. Meanwhile, the investigating team gets lucky when they find the place where a Chinese kingpin, that might be directly involved with the smuggling, hangs out.

J. Miller Tobin directed the screenplay written by J. David Harden. The episode holds our interest, although it is not one of the most involving ones in the season, but nicely done.
