Hang onto your hats!
Verified purchase
Very fast paced crime series based around the use of numbers (averages, probabilities for example but sometimes the formula used gets ridiculous in all honesty).
Very episodic with each of the 13 segments of 40 minutes concentrating on and the solving of a different crime. On the plus side the show is not afraid of tackling very sensitive subjects such as serial rape, child kidnapping, suicide for example. The main protagonists are played by Rob Morrow (FBI agent) and David Krumholtz (maths genius and brother) who solve the crimes with their teams. Their relationship is well written in my view alongside veteran actor Judd Hirsch playing their caring father and certainly there is a genuine warmth between the three.

On the minus side, and I have to read the inside of the dvd jacket to remind myself of the major points of the series, the episodes, and especially the perpetrators of each crime, are NOT very well fleshed out. Certainly most of the supporting characters appear rather bland, and the resolution of each crime using forensic maths is sometimes ludicrous to the casual viewer.
But I do have the box set which does allow me to watch two or three episodes of an evening (without adverts), the best way to watch this series. As a viewer on a single episode per week basis this series would have lost me from the get-go I think.

Dialogue is rapid so one can miss crucial plot points but overall the story lines do entertain if you can forgive the lack of depth and detail to each crime. That may have taken the series to a very dark level.
English language and subtitles, 486 minutes, 13 episodes (expanded to 24 episodes in future seasons), no extras on this Region 2 box set.

Unrealistic in tall the wrong places
Verified purchase
This show claimed to be about the use of maths in crime fighting. In fact it is about one person having good ideas while chalking unrelated maths symbols on a board. I don’t expect “crime fighter + a weird specialist” shows to be entirely realistic but this one didn’t come close to making the specialism plausible or even relevant sometimes. A thumbs down from this reviewer.

above average cop thriller show
Verified purchase
This is a fantastic detective / cop / thriller show, one that for many might well have slipped under the radar.

The idea that applying mathematical theory to behaviour patterns might help trace crimes is no more or less plausible that the wonky science we see week in, week out on the variations of CSI. Also, there is plenty of "traditional" cop work on the go.

Well written, an excellent cast and the occasional appearance of the music of Talking Heads - what's not to like

A bit different
Verified purchase
Has an extra/different dimension to the other police/FBI series out there, especially fun if you like Maths, though you don't need to know any

brilliant series

Brilliant series, one of the best. Love how the brothers work together even if the maths goes well over my head

A pleasant surprise!
Verified purchase
If I were to wake up in the night, Numb3rs would be on some channel or another and would be the ideal "sleeping potion".
However, having bought the series to give it a second chance I was very surprised. It is very good!
Don't worry about the "algarythms" just enjoy it for the crime drama that it is.
