Numb3rs is a drama about an FBI agent who recruits his mathematical-genius brother to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles. A dedicated FBI agent, Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) couldn't be more different from his younger brother, Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz), a brilliant mathematician who's yearned to impress his big brother ever since he was little. As a seasoned investigator, Don deals in hard facts and evidence, whereas Charlie, a math professor at a California university, functions in a world of mathematical probability and equations. Now, despite their disparate approaches to life, Don and Charlie are able to combine their areas of expertise and solve some killer cases. This season, Diane Farr joins the cast as Megan Reeves, part of Don's FBI team.

Cool and Educational Show
This show has it all. Cool undercover detective work, check. Violence and weapons, check. Math and science, check. I did my exam on euler paths, as seen in Toxin, so these guys aren't making this stuff up, as it sometimes seems. It's a smart show with fast paced action and has it's own nerdy romance, too. I highly recommend it.
OK show but...
Well, I've seen quite a few episodes of this show on broadcast, and here's my argument for not spending $40+ on it. Though the intro might correctly claim that we use math every day in our lives, it seems almost every episode, just like almost every episode of House, consists of one person knowing how to do everything while the others just sort of stand around dumbfounded, not saying anything. The creators deserve commendation for incorporating well-explained math into a thriller TV show, but they fail to make it clear that it is accessible to more than just Charlie.
Probably the best CBS has to offer for now....
Good characterization, smart plots, and a show that doesn't insult the viewer. Well worth the cost, as opposed to yet another CSI rehash. Thanks!
