God bows to math.

Numb3rs looks like it could be a keeper.

A stellar cast with 5 longtime favorites:

Rob Morrow (Joel Fleischman on Northern Exposure),

David Krumholtz (second banana to Joseph Gordon Leavitt and a dashing Will Shakespeare in 10 Things I Hate About You),

Sabrina Lloyd (Sliders, Frankie from the late lamented Ed, and apparently she was on Sports Night, but I don't remember her from Aaron Sorkin's first TV effort),

Peter MacNicol (John "the Biscuit" Cage on Ally MacBeal),

and Judd Hirsch (Alex Reiger on Taxi)

plus the Scott Brothers (Blade Runner Ridley and Top Gun Tony) as Executive Producers.

A firm focus on math as well as on the personalities of characters. And one of the better theme songs borrowed for a show: an instrumental version of The Talking Heads' "Once in a Lifetime".
