I just love this series. The idea of solving crime using mathematics is very much unique. Initially I was suspicious if all that they show on TV is possible. But later I came to know that it is based on a true story where a mathematician actually located a serial killer using his equations.
THanks for the fan site. Never knew one existed. I wonder when the DVD of this show is releasing.
I watched the first few episodes of this, but didn't enjoy them. Using equations to solve crimes was just so... unrealistic, contrived and pathetic, in my opinion. Some of the cuts of him writing out long equations, or seemingly random numbers on the screen just looked stupid and often, if you payed attention, had no real relation to what was going on. All in all, i think this series sucks.
Numbers is great. The guy from it i found out is from one of the best movies 10 things i hate about you. But really, it is true that mathematics can be used to predict anything. But this show is one of the best crime shows next to Law&Order-SVU and NCIS.
its a really interesting show. i love it
I tried watching the first season and didn't think it was anything too special but I've watched all the episodes this season and they seem more interesting. The characters seems to have better interaction.
Ya I watch it all of the time. Its not boring or anything its really interesting how he use's math for everything and figures it out all of the time.
I think this is a nicely crafted show and I have been surprised how well the script writers have managemed to develop the theme. I love Mathemetica (though I know very little) and it underpins all our science and technology. The difficulty in teaching it , let alone making it a vehicle for entertainment has been overemphasis of the mechanical and mnipulative ( technical if you wish) side. The creativity, beauty , "detective" aspects of it are usually suppressed. This show is a great step towards encouraging mathematical literacy and interest.
Didn't think it was that great... it looked like a cross between a cop show and an educational program !
It is very educational. The action is good too.
but I never watch every single episode.
And I still dont get the calculations.
I know maths is great just didnt know it's that great
As someone who has studied a good deal of maths, people have talked about this to me in the past.
It might be interesting, but doesn't grab me. I feel like the maths would seem simple. Creative, but simple.
I did enjoy watching this series when I had nothing else to do. It had a good run.
