Good for showing kids how they can use math in the real world.
Bobbi
This series has a good balance of mystery to solve the crimes using logic and science and then throws in character development to add to the human interest.
Margo Ruschmann
I really enjoyed this show when it was on tv and I enjoyed watching the first episode all over again.

Yes, this is a great TV show--and I don't say this lightly. I'm not much of a TV watcher generally speaking, but "Numb3rs" has really impressed me as a quality show from the get-go. My spouse and I always make it a point to be home Friday night to catch the latest episode, so we were both pretty excited that season one has been released on DVD. Since we don't have cable, and surrounding high-rise buildings hinder antenna reception (ah, yes, life in the big city), it has been especially nice to see the episodes again, only this time in clear and crisp digital.

So what makes this show so good? Lots of things, I suppose. I particularly like the combination of Charlie and Don as a crime-fighting team, their skills and personalities complimenting each other. With Charlie you get the latest incarnation of the classic figure of the detective who uses reason and logic to solve the crime (going all the way back to Edgar Allan Poe's Dupin in "The Purloined Letter" not to mention Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes), and with Don you of course get the cop with a badge and a gun who saves the day (a mainstay of American TV for decades). That said, both actors flesh these archetypes out really well into individual characters, and their brotherly interaction (with a dash of sibling rivalry) creates just the right dynamic.

The math angle is handled extremely well, too.

"We all use math everyday" says Charlie Eppes, the lead character in the CBS mathematical drama NUMB3RS. Trying to convince an 8th grade math class about that became easier with this show on the air. I've enjoyed the show since day one. Crime drama that makes you think.

Teachers out there may not be aware that the show has a web site that offers lessons based on each episode. Upper level middle and high school students can be challenged by these activities created with help from Texas Instruments and The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. I am pleased to say some of the authors also participated in the Rutgers Leadership Program in Discrete Mathematics, a course I had the pleasure of taking way back in 1996. Check out the NUMB3RS website at

I don't watch much television because I don't find it very compelling. I started watching numbers because I'm a high school math teacher and they have great tie-ins to the classroom. I kept watching it because the characters are engaging, the stories are fascinating and the math is great! I really like the family dynamics, I like the interplay between the characters who see the world so differently. I like that each show leaves you thinking.

I'm 48 and I love it but so do my 20,17 and 14 year olds. It also doesn't have gratuitous sex or violence. It seems like old fashioned story telling. I would compare it to Monk in terms of good family viewing.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but I never miss this one. The scenarios are interesting and fun. I enjoy all of the characters, especially Professor Larry Fleinhardt. Unlike another reviewer whom I disagree with, his part is critical to filling out the story each week. Whoever thought of a show using mathematicians to work with the FBI should be applauded. In a time when mathematics is placed well behind sports in our schools it is great to have a show demonstrating to our children how important math is in our world and what practical applications there are in even the most unlikely places. I love the mathematical models and studies presented each week in a way that is understandable to those of us who are not mathematicians. It almost makes me wish that I were a mathematician. What a dreary sounding job, and yet, it really comes to life in this show.

My father is a math teacher at the local University, so we all sit down on friday night to enjoy a cop show (my favorite kind) and my father will point out all the improbabilities. He actually knows the consultant for this show, who works at CalTech. The Numb3rs people actually get the math right most of the time. This is one of my all time favorite shows

I have watched Numb3rs ever since it came out and it became my favorite show. I saw every episode of the first season and I thought the show turned out to be one of the biggest tv hits this century. I can't hardly wait to see the current seasons' finale. I know many people who praise the show for it's excellence and the enjoyment the viewers recieve. I apprieciate the skill and mastery with which the actors do their job. We are glad they do what they do and love the show for it.

This 4 disk set of wonderful shows comes in packaging designed to be seriously damaged. The hard, clear plastic case is brittle, and easily damaged in shipping. The disk case slides out of the overcase on the bottom, almost guaranteeing the case will hit the floor every time it's removed from a shelf. The disks overlap inside the case, rubbing against each other. And the disk case is not designed to close (only fold), so the disks fall out almost automatically.

The Amazon vendor I purchased from was very helpful in replacing my damaged disks and case -- but the packaging is a disgrace. Obviously CBS/Paramount took the cheapest option available.

Would recommend you purchase in-person, to avoid some of the damage which can occur in shipping.
