Do3s this s3ri3s have any chance of a longlife?By radar (26 reviews) from Southampton , 22 Nov 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Numb3rs, if you haven't come across it before, is another US police drama series with a small twist. The force utilise the service of an expert and young mathematician (the brother of one of the officers) to help piece together evidence and provide helpful links to catch the criminals.
As far as US police dramas go, it pushes all the right buttons. The stories are original, the acting solid, the plot lines feasible and the pace is pushed along at a decent pace. My only bug bear is how long can a drama series rely on mathematics to come up with differing scenarios? Even by the end of watching series one there had been some brief moments of mathematical repetition. That said, it's definately watchable, and I wait to see if series 2 can keep up the good work

"Numb3rs" Is TopsBy a customer from Edinburgh , 10 Oct 2010On paper, 'Numb3rs' looks like your run of the mill American 'crime procedure' series, but the reality is that it's a whole lot better than average. The premise is good; a senior FBI agent in Los Angeles (Rob Morrow) discovers that his brother (the excellent David Krumholtz), a genius maths professor, can apply his dazzling analytical skills to crime solving. The stories are good, with a nice mixture of tension and humour. However, it's on characterization that the series really scores. In many American series of this type, the ensemble of characters are rarely if ever seen out of their work environment, and can therefore be very one dimensional. Over time, 'Numb3rs' has given its lead characters time and space to grow and develop, and the series benefits enormously as a result. Fans of 'CSI', 'Criminal Minds' etc will lap this up if they aren't already doing so, but bottom line, 'Numb3rs' is a really good watch for anyone who admires a quality tv production.
An enjoyable watch (even if you don't like maths!)By a customer from London , 24 Aug 2010A good series with lots of interesting characters and actually manages to make maths sound interesting! I'm looking forward to seeing how the different characters develop over the series. If you like series like Lie to Me and CSI then you will like this.
numbersBy a customer from Nairn , 05 Apr 2009I love this show but I only started watching it on the tv at about the 4th season so going back to see how it all started was great.
