My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars!
IMDB Rating: 6.9 out of 10 stars!Rotten Tomatoes Rating: audience rating puts it at 83% positive!
This show was a nice change from the typical rehashed police procedural shows. Numb3rs focuses on two brothers working together, with their own separate skills to make the streets safer.
The Eppes brothers seem vastly different at first glance, but they are family and find common ground. Don is Charlies older brother, and lead FBI agent at the Los Angeles Violent Crimes Squad. Charlie is a mathematical genius, and while he has his completely distracted math moments he is oddly able to connect on a much deeper level to those around him.
The show shows how mathematical equations can ferret out even the most hidden criminals, anywhere. Rotten Tomatoes has a rating that says 83% liked the show. I rated it 3 out of 5 gems (stars), good show, fun pace and good solid writing. I enjoyed watching it, it had it’s moments and I was left wanting more I suppose.
