Everything Can Be Solved by Numbers, Even Crime Crime & Mathematics merge in to a suspense-filled drama

Those who are devoted to �CSI: Crime Scene Investigation� should find themselves equally as addicted to Numb3rs�a police technique that swaps forensics with mathematics.

Those who are devoted to �CSI: Crime Scene Investigation� should find themselves equally as addicted to Numb3rs�a police technique that swaps forensics with mathematics.

Judd Hirsch, who many may recognize from the groundbreaking comedy �Taxi� and �Dear John� portrays the father of Charlie (David Krumholtz) and Don Eppes (Rob Morrow), a numerical genius and top FBI agent. With a helping hand from Charlie, who is also a professor and NSA consultant, Don applies calculations to the most unlikely criminal scenarios, with strikingly accurate results.

On board as producers are brothers Ridley and Tony Scott, whose directorial resumes include notable titles like �Alien�, �American Gangster� and �Enemy of the State�. Through the years the Scotts have made lightening fast camera tricks and delightful onscreen visuals their signature style, a characteristic not spared in Numb3rs, where ordinarily bland arithmetic is given a coating of computer animated gloss.

Season four opens up with suspected double agent Colby Granger (Dylan Bruno) breaking out of jail and a guest appearance by Val Kilmer. Later, Colby rejoins the agency and assists the unit in determining whether a famed actor is guilty of murder. Meanwhile a deranged murderer is on the loose, whose mission is to reenact the deaths of Christ�s twelve disciples.

As the season progresses Don trails a modern day Robin Hood, who has ransacked a bank�s safety deposit boxes and donated the bounty to local charities. Professor Amita Ramunajan (Navi Rawat) reveals her secret obsession with role-playing video games, and assists in investigating the suspicious death of a gamer. Mid-season an agent�s love of comic books proves useful in determining the identity of a counterfeiter, with �Back to the Future�s� Christopher Loyd and �Stand by Me�s� Will Wheaton as guest stars.

Numb3rs endured a lengthy six season run, earning a Primetime Emmy along the way. Outside the entertainment industry, organizations such as the Council of Scientific Society and the National Science Board have awarded show creators Nicolas Falacci and Cheryl Heuton for illuminating mathematics� importance through popular culture.
