I think this was the best season for the series; the characters are well developed, and the story ideas are the most creative. I liked these episodes better than those of the 6th, and final, season.

Excellent series with experienced actors and actresses. It is both a hard hitting FBI series and study in math principles and theories combined. The series is based on real life brothers working for the FBI one being an agent and the other a genius in math.

There is also great personal side stories that fit well into the main plots.
My only negative comment deals with the sudden end of the series after being canceled and the obvious made to fit endings to have all the personal store lines be happier ever after.
I suggest you start with the first of the series and build up to the ending. Note the moderation of the character's hair, clothes and attitudes as the series progresses.
My rating: 4 and a half stars out of five
