In the Los Angeles office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Special Agent Don Eppes and his team investigate critical and baffling crimes with a special edge. That advantage is Don's brother, Charles Eppes, a brilliant universalist mathematician who uses the science of mathematics with its complex equations to ferret out the most tricky criminals. With this team, the forces of evil learn their number is up. Written by

Did You Know?
According to an interview that Rob Morrow
gave to "The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles", the Eppes family was not explicitly identified as Jewish until the fifth season, when Morrow asked the showrunners to make a point of it and to include a storyline in which his character, Don, starts to explore his religion (Morrow may have forgotten that in season four, episode five, "Robin Hood", Charlie does mention that he is Jewish). There were some implicit references to the family's Judaism earlier than that, however, including the comment in season one, episode one, "Pilot", about Alan serving brisket on Friday nights, and Don and Charlie's conversation in season three, episode three, "Provenance", about how it was weird that their mother had wanted a Christmas tree.

Hey, Dad. What are you doing here?
Well, I-I like coming whenever Charlie gives one of these math-for-dummies lectures. It's the only time I actually understand what he's talking about.
