Numb3rs is unlike any other crime drama like CSI or NCIS or law and order. This show is a great new idea because it is unique. It uses maths to help solve crime so there is always something to back up the evidence with. It uses a lot of complex Maths equations and skills which I have picked up whilst watching the show for the last 3 1/2 years. It also has a nice mix of action (car chases and plenty of it's shooting scenes) The storylines remain exciting and imformative 85% of the time. The show is exciting and educational (in some ways) so that;s why it's my personal favourite!
When Numb3rs first came out, I was very excited. I enjoyed the idea of someone using mathematics to solve crimes and this show was much more interesting than many other shows that came off of the CSI buzz. The premise was slightly more divergent than the rest, and I enjoyed that.

I haven't seen the latest series, but of course I love Numb3rs, and fancy the pants off Charlie ;) Sometimes you end up wincing at how much Charlie and Larry have to dumb science down for the others (e.g. Their explanation of ionising radiation) but I like the interesting and sympathetic portrayal of intelligent and geeky people. I'm sure some people just find it humorous, but I like that it's not portrayed solely as 'lol, look at the bumbling geek'. I empathise heavily with the need to understand and explain and model.

Also, I love the family dynamic between Charlie, Don and Alan. They're all so sweet together!
