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.

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.

I have loved every season of Numb3rs so far. It is easy to say that it's a crime drama at heart, but really it's so much more. There is the math aspect, that brings a different way of looking at crime-solving. It is done in such a way that doesn't feel like a math lesson; and I have every confidence that law enforcement makes use of such special consultants as they are available. The internal conflict of each character, and the relationships between them all is really what makes the show, and makes the show great. The different crimes just provide the backdrop to bring them all together. David Krumholtz as Charlie is excellent, as ever, in his portrayal of a mathematical genius who can become completely absorbed in his academic endeavors, and yet has found a growing sense of satisfaction and purpose in his work consulting with his brother for the FBI. Rob Morrow as Agent Don Eppes is believable, and his character goes through some changes in this particular season that seem to round him out more. It's nice to see the series growing and branching out from some of the familiar patterns, and yet maintaining the crux of what made it such a successful show. I have always had a soft spot for Judd Hirsch (who plays Alan, Don & Charlie's father) ever since I used to watch him in Taxi years ago, so I am happy to see his character become more prominent. He really has a way of making his on-screen moments count. Peter MacNicol (Professer Fleinhardt) and Navi Rawat (Amita Ramanujan) also perform brilliantly and add nice depth to the series, as well as the other characters. I love that Amita's character is a strong, confident and intelligent young woman, and yet she still has struggles with dating and decision making as many young women do. It feels real.Read more ›

Storyline in earlier seasons was really good but it seemed that as the seasons went on they forced the sex scenes and revealing clubs on shows that they didn't have to, in order to raise ratings. I was very disappointed with the direction the show was going. They began forcing the storylines and changed the characters too much from who they really were before.

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.
