  • Agent Sinclair takes his new date to a magic show, but is forced into action when a trick goes wrong and an assistant disappears, literally. The investigation leads to a number of surprises but also gets Charlie and Amita help from an unexpected source.

    There may be "Magic" in the title of this episode but there is none to be found in the episode itself. This is one of the most dull and uninteresting episodes of "Numb3rs" to date. I found myself not at all hooked on the story and feeling nothing for it once it reached its conclusion. Penn Jillete's guest appearance on the show is a highlight of the episode but we don't see enough of him to lift this episode above mediocrity. The story surrounding the magician's involved in the act had some promise, but ultimately went nowhere. No "Magic" here.
