Watch Numb3rs

Numb3rs is a crime-drama television show produced by Ridley and Tony Scott that stars Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz among several others. Morrow plays a FBI special agent who has a brother who is a mathematical genius who helps him solve crimes for the FBI. The show focuses greatly on not just the crime solving, but on the intertwined relationships within the show. Unlike most other shows, Numb3rs focuses a large part on the equal relationship and human aspect of the characters as well as the actual crime solving.

Numb3rs employs basic and advanced logistics and mathematics to show how it relates to everyday life in more ways than the average human being realizes. The show does not institute fake or made up equations just for ratings sake either, as the show employed several mathematicians who consulted every episode and made sure that the math was relevant and checked out as factual. We are constantly reminded of how relative math can be in crime solving, and are shown this unique and alternate view to crime solving several times in each episode.

Though the show seems to focus on the two brothers, there were plenty of other integral characters that added to the unique formula. The brother's father, Alan (played by Judd Hirsch) was also key in helping the boys solve the crimes and develop both of their characters as well. As previously mentioned, the relationship between the brothers and their father is treated equally to the brothers own relationship with each other. The family is not the only personal character relationships that develop either. Besides the numerous professional relationships formed between the group, a romantic relationship evolves as well. Starting in season two, we see Charlie and another mathematician and FBI consultant, Prof. Amita Ramanujn (Navi Rawat), adopt a love relationship of their own that blossoms and unfolds throughout the shows life, eventually culminating in a marriage between the two!

To speak to the shows credentials, it has been nominated and won several awards in many different categories. The biggest awards may not have been of the Hollywood style either, as the show has crossed over and also won science awards as well! It really is a very unique and science driven entertaining learning experience!
