A typical episode begins with a crime, which is subsequently investigated by a team of FBI agents led by Don and mathematically modeled by Charlie, with the help of Larry Fleinhardt (Peter Mac Nicol) and Amita Ramanujan (Navi Rawat).
The insights provided by Charlie's mathematics were always in some way crucial to solving the crime.
In May 2010, CBS announced that Numbers had been canceled after six seasons.
Temporary characters on the show were often named after famous mathematicians. It’s using your mind to solve the biggest mysteries we know.
For example, in the episode "In Plain Sight" (season 2, episode 8), one of the criminals is named Rolle and Charlie's father mentions a meeting with a man named Robert Peterson. The first season run of the show aired between January 23, 2005, and May 13, 2005, at p.m. It sees the start of the working relationship between Los Angeles' FBI field office and Charlie Eppes.
Opening: (Voice-over by David Krumholtz) We all use math every day. The main FBI agents are Charlie's brother, Don Eppes, and Terry Lake, as well as David Sinclair.Don and Charlie's father, Alan Eppes, provides emotional support for the pair, while Professor Larry Fleinhardt and doctoral student Amita Ramanujan provide mathematical support and insights to Charlie.Season One was a half-season, producing only 13 episodes.Sabrina Lloyd played Terry Lake, an agent, in this season; she was later replaced by Diane Farr, who played Megan Reeves.The second season run of the show aired between September 23, 2005, and May 19, 2006, again at p.m. Season Two sees several changes to Don's FBI team: Terry Lake is reassigned to Washington and two new members join Don and David Sinclair: Megan Reeves and Colby Granger.Charlie is challenged on one of his long-standing pieces of mathematical work and also starts work on a new theory, Cognitive Emergence Theory.
