It's numb3r one!,
This review is from: Numb3rs - The Complete First Season (DVD)
This show is smart, discussing some esoteric mathematical concepts. However it delivers it in an interesting way with metaphors and visuals, allowing the average person to follow along. It gives insights of how mathematics applies to various aspects of life, stressing the importance of math towards understanding life.
Despite all the math geekiness Numb3rs, unlike CSI and Law & Order, focuses in on the characters' personalities and relationships. This allows the viewer to emphathize with the characters' lives, rather than being engrossed solely by the case on hand.
This combination of developing the characters while they delve into a complicated subject is something I haven't seen before. It separates this show from the rest, and in my humble opinion, it's the best one.
