  • Here is an episode when everything works!

    This is an episode that proves that Numb3rs is one of CBS’ best dramas. The opening scene shows why this show works. It’s all counts on the brothers, Don and Charlie. Rob Morrow and David Krumholtz have the perfect on-screen dynamic that makes their characters’ relationship believable and fun to watch. In the screen where David and Colby tell Don that his brother is starting to freak them out, Don handles the situation perfectly. He basically says, "yeah, he’s a freak, but so what he’s my brother." In this episode the intensity of geeky math and the intensity of the FBI merge seamlessly to create one griping hour of television. Colin Hanks guests stars as a rival of Charlie who seems to be out to destroy Charlie’s life-time achievement. The "math fight" between Hanks and Krumholtz is flawless. This is one of the best episodes.
