4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Show for a Friday Night, May 22, 2009
This review is from: Numb3rs: Season 4 (DVD)
NUMB3RS has an odd distinction of being one of the few shows to survive in the dreaded Friday Night Death slot. This time slot has been the cause of many good shows going out before their prime. NUMB3RS has grown somewhat of a cult following allowing it to survive in a slot where most shows go before they're canceled.

NUMB3RS isn't really a procedural drama or a character drama, it's a bit of both. Rob Morrow portrays Don Eppes, a FBI agent who by the fourth season is pretty knowledgeable in the murder field. David Krumholtz plays his younger brother Charlie Eppes, a math genius at the fictional CalSci School. Charlie's role in the beginning of the series was pretty undefined but by the fourth season he seems to have found his footing as a member of the team. A few other FBI agents round out the cat but it's mainly the interaction between the Eppes' brothers that defines the series.

As I said earlier NUMB3RS' specific genre is sort of undefined. It certainly is one of CBS' more unique crime shows especially because it heavily incorporates math into the plot. It also is one of the few shows on CBS to have sibling characters in the lead role. There is a lot of character interaction and that differentiates it from a lot of the other crime dramas on CBS.

NUMB3RS' fourth season aired during the writer's strike. This means that there were only 18 episodes as opposed to the normal 24 episodes that season's two and three had. 18 episodes is still a big number for a strike shortened season (Scrubs' seventh season had only eleven episodes during the strike) so it's still a good set. New fans of the show should check out the earlier seasons first but it was really fun seeing NUMB3RS mature into the fun drama that it is today.
