I absolutely love detective / action programs and am an avid fan of the likes of 'Bones' and '24' and never miss an episode of 'House MD' (which I've included in this review since as every House fan knows, they solve illnesses instead of crimes but the format is the same). So I firstly, decided to give 'numb3rs' a chance because the new approach of 'maths' (as we English call it) to solve crime seemed intriguing.
Secondly, I noticed that Ridley and Tony Scott had put their names to it, which to me gave it excellent credentials since I am a fan of both their work, especially Ridley Scott since I loved his work on 'Gladiator' and 'Kingdom of Heaven'.
My final reason for buying the boxset could be construed as a bit of a shallow one, that is I've had a bit of a soft spot for Rob Morrow since 'Northern Exposure', I also knew him to be a good actor, honestly.
Cutting a long story short, I got season one and after watching only two episodes I immediately pre-ordered season two, I enjoyed it that much.
So, to the series itself. The stories are excellently written and the more you watch, the more addictive it becomes. All the characters are well rounded (not just the key ones) and you actually care what happens to them which to me is the essential to a good drama.Read more ›
If you're interested in this box-set, you've probably already seen the show, so I'll just summarize briefly. In "Numb3rs," the character Charlie Eppes (played David Krumholtz) helps his FBI agent brother Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) to solve cases. He's a professor at a university and a mathematical genius. He's also assisted by his good friend and colleague, Larry Fleinhardt.
In this second season, some fun new things come into the mix. The characters of Megan and Colby join the mix. They make wonderful additions to the show. The opening intro has been changed to be more exciting and interesting, which hints at changes in the show. The cast is really getting into its groove and the writing is very strong. With guest-appearances by folks such as Bill Nye, this show definitely doesn't suffer from a sophomore slump.
This DVD set offers all episodes from the second season. All are closed-captioned and feature Dolby Digital sound.
This also comes with some special features, which are also closed-captioned. Unlike a lot of other DVD season sets, the special features are accessible on the first and second discs, rather than all on the last disc. You get behind-the-scenes with David Krumholtz and show co-creator Nicholas Falacci. There's also a blooper reel, a season retrospective and an inside look at the production of one of the episodes. There's also commentaries by cast and crew (including Bill Nye) for several episodes, generally one per disc.
Much of the credit for the superior quality of this show goes to its talented cast: Rob Morrow exudes a strong sense of duty as Don Eppes; he is dedicated to the point of having very little personal life; David Krumholtz is amazing as the brilliant Charlie Eppes, a world away at times from his older brother; Krumholtz is perfect in explaining his theories and algorithms, etc., he seems perfectly at home with some tricky dialogue and his personal demons seem to make him even more approachable; Navi Rawat (sp) is charming as Charlie's unrequited love, and she brings a lot of warmth to the show; Alimi Ballard is good as the stoic Dave Sinclair, who is supremely focused and dedicated as well; Judd Hirsch is perfect as the boy's wise father, recently widowed and trying to jumpstart his life; Peter MacNicol, underused in the first season, gets a little more exposure this season by getting more involved in the cases. Two new additions this season are also beneficial: Julie Farr as Megan, the forensic psychologist, brings a sense of strength, compassion and humor to her role; and husky Dylan Bruno brings a sense of commitment and dedication along with his impressive pecs.
This season also features some strong guest performances from Will Patton, Robert Forster, and Jobeth Williams.
You can count on one thing with NUMB3RS: It's absorbing and very entertaining.
