The Complete Series
It All Adds Up To Justice
Now on Paramount Home DVD: When cases defy ordinary solutions, dedicated FBI agent Don Eppes (Rob Morrow, “Norther Exposure”) turns to his younger sibling, Professor Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz, Bobby), a mathematical prodigy in the thrilling series NUMB3RS.
Now arriving in a new complete series collection, the fascinating drama follows the two brothers as they take on the most confounding criminal cases from a very distinctive perspective. 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. Their father, Alan (Judd Hirsch, “Taxi”), is happy to see his sons working together even though he doesn’t understand what Charlie does for a living. When Charlie has doubts about the collaboration, he turns to his physicist friend, Dr. Larry Fleinhardt (Emmy Award winner Peter MacNicol, “Ally McBeal”), as he understands that math is the language of human nature and can be used to solve some of life’s biggest mysteries.
Inspired by actual cases, the series depicts how the confluence of police work and mathematics provides unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing criminal questions.
Numb3rs ran for 6 seasons, from 2005 until 2010, and was a show that I watched each week until complications with my third pregnancy saw me stop watching TV early in 2007 (I developed what I call the attention span of a gnat because I wasn’t able to sleep, or sit for very long periods of time). I’m super excited that Paramount has released the complete series on DVD so that I can revisit the first couple of seasons, and then catch up with the last half of the series that I missed!
What set Numb3rs apart from similar crime dramas of the mid to late 2000s was the unique concept about combining good old fashioned police work with the science of numbers. Crime dramas were all over the place during this time, but Numb3rs was one of my favourites because they just did it differently, the chemistry of the actors was great, and I have always enjoyed Judd Hirsch ever since I saw Running on Empty (starring River Phoenix) as a teen in the 80s.
