I am a huge crime buff since I was a teenager. It was my Nan who got me into crime shows all those times we watched The Bill, Poirot and Midsommer Murders together and we still do. So this TV show Numb3rs is another one I am adding to my list that I love to watch.
Plus I love maths so when I heard about Numb3rs I just had to watch it as it seemed like the perfect combination for me. My geek love of maths comes from my mother who is also a maths geek.
I really enjoyed the first episode a gritting case that got your interest strait away. The first episode is about finding a serial rapist through the use of maths. It was a fascinating to see how you could work out his safe area to help whittle down where he was taking his victims.
The maths connection was so fascinating using maths to find the point of origin of the serial killer. It is incredible how you can use maths and technology to to pinpoint someone’s criminal activity. I really liked that both the maths and the crime side of the world are separate but you engage in both worlds and its not just solely focused on the criminal side.
I loved the brothers and father relationship it was an endearing and interesting dynamic. It felt like a real cosy family which is nice to have when you have on the other side you have the two brothers solving gritty and horrid crimes. It gave the show an uplifting side to it which is always important in crime shows to have that balance otherwise it gets too depressing to watch.
The set up of future and current relationships was solid and peaked my curiosity in terms Don and Charlie. Overall, a great first episode that has got me hooked in terms of the characters and the main idea for the show.
