Product Description

FBI Special Agent Don Eppes recruits his mathematical genius brother Charlie to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles. The two brothers take on the most confounding criminal cases from a very distinctive perspective. Assisting Don at the FBI is behavioral specialist Megan Reeves and FBI agents David Sinclair and Colby Granger. Charlie’s colleagues at the University where he teaches include Dr. Larry Fleinhardt and former grad student Amita Ramanjuan, both of whom offer their math expertise to assist Charlie with the most perplexing cases. Don and Charlie’s father, Alan Eppes, is pleased to see his two sons working together, but fears their competitive nature will lead to trouble.

Amazon.com

Some key subtractions and additions invigorate the engrossing third season of this smart series about an FBI team led by Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) who gets assistance on its toughest cases by Don's brother, Charlie (David Krumholtz), a mathematical genius. Peter MacNicol, as eccentric physics professor Larry Fleinhardt, Charlie's mentor, departed mid-season for a stint on 24. Diane Farr, as FBI profiler Megan Reeves, left on maternity leave. Enter Kathy Najimy as Charlie's new boss, Mildred ("Millie") Finch, and the exotic Aya Sumika as Special Agent Liz Warner, to give the show what the creators call, in a bonus season retrospective, "more girl energy." What separates Numb3rs from TV's other, and more grisly, procedural shows is that it emphasizes brains over bleech and intellect over ick. Enjoyment of Numb3rs is not dependent on your knowledge of "multi-attribute compositional models," "hidden variable theory," or "quadratic discriminate analysis," Just do what the confounded agents on Don's team do whenever Charlie explains how he applies his "intuitive synthesis of established mathematical principles and theorems" to manhunting: "Nod your head and wait for the punchline." Big picture, the cases are compelling in themselves: a psyche-scarred teacher and her young lover embark on a murder spree; a valuable painting originally stolen by Nazis is heisted from an art gallery; someone is bent on killing, not catching, child predators; a music mogul's son is kidnapped; a sinkhole that destroys a school playground reveals the cover-up of illegal toxic waste dumping.

Season 3 also fleshes out the characters. The competitive brothers express newfound respect for each other ("It's amazing how you see things," Don tells Charlie at one point). Charlie and Amita (Navi Rawat), who has accepted a position at the university to teach and do research, attempt to take their budding romantic relationship to the next level. Megan and Larry also become a couple. And in the thrilling and suspenseful season finale, "The Janus List," there is a startling revelation about one of the members on Don's team. Among the notable guest stars include Lou Diamond Phillips, reprising his role as Agent Edgerton, who is willing to cross ethical lines that Don is not. In the episode "Provenance," Gena Rowlands gives a heartbreaking performance as a woman whose family was decimated by the Holocaust. Add such extras as selected episode commentaries, bloopers, and an entertaining set tour with Krumholtz, Morrow, and Judd Hirsch, who helps to anchor the series as Don and Charlie's father, and you have a season whose DVD release is a "special equation." --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the Most Inventive Crime Series Out There October 30, 2007
Format:DVD
Numb3rs, now deep into its fourth season, is my favorite Friday night television show, and within the top three for the whole week. And, I have to admit, those three rotate pretty regularly based on individual episodes.

The series is produced by Tony Scott (Top Gun, True Romance) and Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner). It was created by husband and wife team Nicholas Falacci and Cheryl Heuton, who still contribute many of the scripts. With this many families involved in the series, it's no wonder relationships feature at the core of the show every week.

The general conceit of the series is that the FBI uses mathematicians and math to solve crimes and catch criminals. When I first saw the series advertised, I was interested in David Krumholtz (University professor Charlie Eppes) and Rob Morrow (FBI Special Agent-in-Charge Don Eppes). Krumholtz has been in movies and television since he was a kid, and Morrow was a centerpiece in the outstanding Northern Exposure.

I tuned in that first season not really knowing what to expect. Then I was completely blown away by the layered plots and introduction of mathematical concepts that made me wish I'd at least picked up a minor in math while cruising through college collecting the bits and pieces of my Bachelor of Arts in English.

But at the heart of this series are the relationships between the characters. As brothers, Charlie and Don are immediately and irrevocably as different as siblings can be. Charlie is a certified genius and Don is a hard-edged, no-nonsense FBI team leader. They fight and argue and strive to understand each other, and viewers are as gripped by the mysteries of their relationship as they are the cases the FBI works on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still one of the best shows on TV! August 17, 2007
Format:DVD
Of course, I don't own the third season on DVD so I cannot say what the special features include or how well they worked, but I did watch the entire 3rd Season when it was on television and, true to form, it remains one of the best shows on television. The characters all work really well together and the stellar "family" trio of David Krumholtz, Rob Morrow, and Judd Hirsch again work their magic in this well-written and well-acted third season. As much as this show is about the FBI or mathematics (and the great connection the two can have in common), it also is about family, in the literal sense but also in regards to people you work with. Ultimately, you care about these characters (especially if you have seen the other two seasons, but isn't required) and the differences their jobs and their lives create between them. The subject matter is heavy at times (and not recommended for children) but some of the other "heavy" episodes aren't anything they aren't already exposed so could make this show fresh by its bringing mathematics away from just geeks and making it interesting for all kinds of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars it keeps on rolling April 29, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
who thought that a show about mathematics and crime solving would be both interesting and engaging to watch at the same time. Season 3 is chock full of engaging characters, situations and stories that will keep any and all interested in this ever growing and popular TV show. Numb3rs is on the way up and Season 3 has more than enough intrigue, mystery, romance and quite a bit of betrayal in it (The Janus List) a lot of things get brought out into the open and one surprise that i didnt ever see coming at all.

Enjoy this one because from the looks of it Rob Morrow, David Krumholtz, Judd Hirsch and the rest of the gang are in for heck of a ride in Season 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Numb3rs Winner March 14, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite shows and this third season sees continued development in the characters and the crimes. Unlike most other Cop Dramas, Numb3rs focuses equally on the characterization and the crime. Since much of the show takes place outside the FBI setting, you get a balanced view from the non-FBI perspective.

This is the thinking person's show! Great season with a surprising cliff-hanger. Outstanding music used. Just hope it can entice some students to take math more seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great as usual. October 26, 2007
By Janie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As usual, really enjoyed this series. Like watching the programs without commercials; can go back and rewatch as many times as I want. I love the versatility of the characters on this show. Math was never one of my best subjects in school; but this give a whole new meaning to math. The characters are so smart, but also so common. I really enjoy the family exchanges between father and sons. I highly recommend this set of DVDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Numb3rs Rule !!!! - from Australia October 24, 2007
Format:DVD
I must admit to a certain amount of bias, being in the profession of stats. Although there are a number (no pun intended) of practical incorrectness (ie: math on the board is definately props), this season is enjoyable to say the least. The relationships established, although unlikely in the normal practise, leave you with a believable sense of realism. Thoroughly recommended to the mathematically inclined forensic enthusiast.
