Product Description

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.

Fascinating cases, friendship dynamics and trust metrics all add up to another compelling season of television's smartest procedural show. The season gets off to an explosive start with a Very Special Episode, complete with blazing action set pieces and even a Big Name Star (Val Kilmer!) right out of a Tony Scott blockbuster, which figures as Scott, who co-produces Numb3rs with brother Ridley, helmed the episode. The truth about agent Colby's (Dylan Bruno) loyalties is revealed, and he is tentatively and warily welcomed back into the fold, although Sinclair (Alimi Ballard) feels particularly betrayed. Mathematics (duh) figure heavily in this season's convoluted cases, including the death of a woman in a rising young movie star's bathtub, an immersive interactive video game, and a street race that spins out of control. Concepts such as partition congruence and Byzantine fault-tolerance may soar over most viewer's heads, but as the movie star admiringly observes, it's "way cool" when professor Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz) measures towel absorbency to determine the size of the bathtub killer. Numb3rs divides its time between casework and the human equation. Charlie's older brother and FBI team leader Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) is haunted by the death of a woman in witness protection, loses one girlfriend, but regains another, Robin (Michelle Nolden reprising her second season role). Eccentric professor Larry (Peter Gallagher) has returned from space and is now living in a monastery. Psychological profiler Megan (Diane Farr) ponders a career change. It's a particularly eventful season for Charlie, who becomes a bestselling author and relationship guru after his book on friendship dynamics is marketed as a self-help tome. One harrowing case involving a kidnapped reporter hits close to home when intimidating thugs cloud his mathematical prowess. He also undergoes FBI training ("I’m in pursuit of a burgundy-ish, sort of merlot-coloured… what model car would you say that is?" he radios in during a training exercise). In the game-changing season finale, Charlie and Don, the "brothers who became friends," are on opposite sides of a case involving a Pakistani scientist friend of Charlie's who is suspected of being a terrorist. No episode commentaries this time around, but five featurettes go behind the scenes of the Tony Scott episode. --Donald Liebenson

Numb3rs is not a typical cop show. The difference goes far beyond the math angle, which in the hands of lesser writers and actors might have become gimmicky and worn thin. These are fully fleshed-out characters -- human, flawed, quirky, with complex and unexpected relationships, and above all, so engaging and likeable that you become invested in their personal success. Plots ranging from terrorist attacks, to art confiscated by the Nazis in WWII, to kidnapping, to the theft of a rare comic book give each episode a different texture. Get to know the characters in Season One, and enjoy the increasing depth of the entire ensemble through each subsequent season. Prepare yourself not to be limited by the usual parameters of a crime show. As Larry (played by the incomparable Peter MacNicol) would have it, Numb3rs looks at criminals and those who bring them to justice through the prisms of cosmology and ontology.

This show has been great from the start and just gets even better. It is amazing how they are able to find such a diverse array of topics without repeating the same themes over and ever again. This show makes me want to become an FBI agent and learn mathamatics all over again. It also helps that Rob Morrow is HOT!

I love the series and already purchased the first 3 seasons from Amazon. But, since season #4 was an abridged season (writers' strike) and you only get 5 DVDs for @ 720 minutes of viewing why would I want to pay such a high price? I suggest that the cost of season 4 should be discounted by Amazon to account for the reduced quantity of episodes. Even David Krumholtz would agree with these numb3rs.

I find the concept of using numbers as they do I the shows to be quite enjoyable. It is a pleasant show for me to watch. I must admit that not all the story lines or acting is the best; but I still like the show.

The seasons keep getting Better & Better. I did not watch this series when it first aired, so all these episodes are new to me. Each season builds on the last. A little more romance added each season. Charlie still tends to amaze me. I think because math was my hardest subject all through school. I could not see how most of it would ever apply to real life! Now I do. His algorithms amaze me ! He is such a math genius. It really works.I can't wait to see what he figures out next, with math!! I know it is only a show, but I bet they do use this method to figure out some cases today. It works. Have to close now and tune into Season #5 !! Thanks AMAZON for making this happen. Jane E Vann

The fourth season of "Numb3rs" picked up where its predecessors left off--math professor Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz) uses his number sense to help his FBI agent brother Don (Rob Morrow) solve many crimes, including murder, robbery, kidnapping, rape, meth production, and terrorism in these 18 episodes that were originally broadcast on CBS from September 2007 to May 2008.

"Numb3rs" is a strong crime drama with great writing, but it also creates characters that are engaging and seem real. There are more absorbing storylines in the interplay between the characters this season as Don, Charlie, and the others progress in their careers and their relationships with each other. Some of the mathematical concepts used by Charlie this season include game theory, trust metrics, refraction, displacement, Fibonacci sequences, regressions, and social network analysis.

Recognizable guest stars in Season Four include Val Kilmer and Christopher Lloyd, and there is a special feature on this DVD set about the filming of the season opener. I've enjoyed this series greatly, and look forward to watching the final two seasons.

Numb3rs was probably the most intelligent of the "cop" shows on TV! I was very sorry when they decided to discontinue the show. The ensemble cast was well balanced and Judd Hirsh makes a great "wise man" as counter-point to the witty dialog of the other players. Great show.

It's going to be tough to top this episode. Trust Metric is the conclusion of last season's cliff hanger "The Janus List." Tony Scott and John Behring (4400, Charmed, Roswell) step in to direct once more. It looks like Matthew Jensen's (CSI) hand behind the camera. Whoever it was, there was some stunning camerawork and editing. Kudos to Ken Sanzel for finishing the script.

This is about as close as you're going to get to "The Bourne Identity" type thriller on TV so I'm not going to reveal any spoilers. Trust Metric opens with a "prevously on Num3ers," but it would be better so see the Janus List first. Great TV.
