Editorial Reviews

NUMB3RS is a drama about an FBI agent who recruits his mathematical-genius brother 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. Inspired by actual events, the series depicts how the confluence of police work and mathematics provides unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing criminal questions. A dedicated FBI agent, Don Eppes (Rob Morrow), couldn't be more different from his younger brother, Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz), a brilliant mathematician who, since he was little, yearned to impress his big brother. Don is joined on his team by fellow agents Megan Reeves (Diane Farr), a behavioral specialist who brings psychological insight to their investigations; David Sinclair (Alimi Ballard), who utilizes his incredible perspective and the survival skills he learned growing up in the Bronx; and new agent Colby Granger (Dylan Bruno) who just completed an extensive tour of duty in the U.S. Military. After some initial reluctance, Don's team welcomes Charlie's innovative methods to crime-solving. Their father, Alan (Judd Hirsch), is happy to see his sons working together even though he doesn't understand the intricacies of what Charlie does for a living. It is his co-workers at CalSci who further refine Charlie's approach and help him stay focused. Physicist friend Dr. Larry Fleinhardt (Peter MacNicol) constantly challenges Charlie to employ a broader point of view to his work with the FBI, and Amita Ramanjuan (Navi Rawat), Charlie's former grad student, frequently helps him see cases in a new light Despite their disparate approaches to life, Don and Charlie are able to combine their areas of expertise and solve some killer cases.

Customer Reviews

Great stories and great characters.
James
I love the mix of who done it and the idea of math being involved in crime solving.
Julie
Numb3rs season five was by far the best one I have watched yet.

Season 5 may be the most in depth of any of the seasons. After a shortened season 4 (for the same price), this full season is worth the money. Between the off the wall, but always helpful remarks of Larry, and the interactions between Colby and David, this season is at the top. If you are a Numbers fan, pick this season up, you won't be disappointed. The one change that some fans may not like is Meagan left the show, and is replaced by a somewhat irritating (in my opinion) former LAPD officer. The transition works. It allows the LAPD to become a slightly more important (and different) aspect than it once was.

A former math teacher, I love to see a show that illustrates the usefulness of math and people actually enjoying math. This show does just that. I hope it never goes off the air. I buy every season when it comes out and watch it in a marathon - no commercial breaks, no missed episodes. BLISS!

This series has fresh material each episode with lots of action and suspense intermingled with science. I really appreciated the fact that Numb3rs does not find the need for foul language. The character interaction of the family and team members gives this series a depth and leads one to feel that one knows each person: the brothers, the father, the love interests. Then there was the time when Megan resigned – she left a hole for the rest of the series. When Colby was in trouble – ‘No, not Colby!’ I could go on and on but that would not be good. I highly recommend this season.

I love Numb3rs - it's one of my favorite shows ever. I was excited for the fifth season, but disappointed at the lack of audio commentary available. There are a few episodes with commentary, but not enough. This would not affect my decision to buy it again; it's just something to know ahead of time.

This series was on a couple of years ago. I enjoyed then and still enjoy the reruns of it, with 6 years of episodes.

Numb3rs is one of the best shows ever. Unfortunately like all the good shows it was taken off the air prematurely. I just wished there were more seasons to watch.

For more than five years, "Numb3rs" was a fixture on CBS on Friday nights. Two brothers, FBI agent Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) and his mathematician brother Charlie (David Krumholtz) joined forces to solve crimes in and around Los Angeles. This DVD set contains the all 23 episodes of the fifth season of the series, originally broadcast from October 2008 to May 2009.

A few intriguing plotlines involving Don, Charlie, and their family were introduced this season, and Charlie again provided mathematical knowledge to the FBI to help Don and his team of agents solve crimes such as murder, blackmail, fraud, theft, marijuana farming, a train crash, a bombing, a hostage situation, home invasions, a bank robbery, and a kidnapping. Pau Gasol and Henry Winkler made guest appearances in these episodes.

Some of the mathematical concepts broached over the course of this season included game theory, probability, artificial intelligence, and voice analysis. Facebook exploded in popularity in 2009, and its algorithms got a mention in an episode during the season. One episode was set in the nearby Channel Islands, and this season saw the series delve into the worlds of surfing, basketball, sneaker collecting, and animal rights extremism.

Special features on this DVD set include commentary on the making of the series and a celebration of "Numb3rs" reaching the coveted 100-episode milestone.

This season also had an especially dramatic finale. There is some foul language in the show, but the violence necessary for a police drama like this one is not gratuitous in "Numb3rs." The show features likable characters with great chemistry, and the writing for the show is superb. The show's devotees likely didn't want to see the series end, but after this season there was still one great season left.

...describes the overall tone of Numb3rs, a unique attribute for a mature series. Although the basic formula hasn't altered since Season 1--FBI Special Agent Don Eppes recruits his mathematical genius brother, Professor Charles Eppes, to help solve crime--the human element of the series has evolved as characters have developed and become more complex. Season 5 featured several pivotal character events--Charlie's security clearance is restored, the process of which prompts a journey of self-examination for Don, a journey which bravely includes an exploration of his Jewish faith (a facet to his character which helps set him apart from other TV cops); David receives a promotion to Don's second-in-command, which fleshes out the differences in professional approach between him and Don, and creates tension between him and partner Colby; Don suffers a near-fatal stab wound as a result, in part, of a miscalcuation of Charlie's, which leads Charlie to question his own purpose in life; and Amita is kidnapped, which ultimately deepens her romance with Charlie and prompts a season-ending marriage proposal.

The interpersonal relationships of the characters remain at the core of the storytelling, with character and plot each informing the other, particularly that of the Eppes family. The continuing influence of executive producers Tony and Ridley Scott can be seen throughout this season, from the dramatic and visual intensity of episodes like "Thirty-Six Hours", in which the team races to save lives following the collision of two trains, and "Jacked", in which a tour bus is hijacked, leading the FBI team through a series of surprising plot twists which, even after repeated viewings, catches the audience by surprise, to the cinematic and romantic feel of "Angels and Devils".
