Harvest - S2-E14

Corrected entry: The episode claims that a character speaks Tamil however the language the character speaks is not Tamil.

Correction: She was actually speaking Tamil, just very badly. Probably because it's a Hindi actress, not Tamil.

It definitely wasn't Tamil at all! It didn't even sound like a Hindi speaker speaking Tamil.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Season 1, Episode 5, "Prime Suspect": Charlie Epps is discussing the Riemann Hypothesis, and its relation to very large prime numbers. In the graphics shown on the screen to depict what he is talking about, one of the large numbers shown has "10" for its final two digits. This cannot be a prime number.

Rooster of Doom

Correction: At the zoomed in shot, it appears to be a 10, but something is cut off to make it look like a zero. At a zoom out of this shot, the block reads 719, a prime number.

The Janus List - S3-E24

Corrected entry: In the beginning when they were talking about shutting off the cell phone service to stop the bombs from being detonated, they say "too bad we don't know what cellphone carrier he is using we can block the signal from the tower". When a major bridge is filled with explosives, wouldn't it make more sense to just block ALL the towers regardless of the carrier to be safe?

Boobra

Correction: David says that the jammer doesn't have the range to block the signal from the truck. He said he needs to find out the carrier so that he/they can shut down "a whole grid of towers", which is what they did.

Vector - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Charlie says the disease is a Pandemic Flu, to which Terry replies "The Spanish Flu" and goes off on a monologue about that illness. Pandemic is not the name of the Spanish Flu, pandemic means that it's an illness that infects both humans and animals. There have been several pandemic flus across history.

Correction: Terry mentions the Spanish Flu as an example of a pandemic, rather than saying it's the only one. By the way, the definition of the word 'pandemic' is: "Epidemic over a wide geographic area and affecting a large proportion of the population." It has nothing to do with what the disease infects.

Protest - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Season 2 - Episode 16 - "Protest": Near the end when the guy is threatening to drop the nitroglycerin, he drops the test-tube and it lands on a red mat. However, when the agent picks it up, there isn't a mat anywhere near the test-tube.

More quotes from Numb3rs

Trivia: Season 4 - Episode 4 "Thirteen"; The episode revolves around a man killing people with the same first names as the thirteen apostles (Mary Magdalene being the 13th), and killing them in a similar fashion in which the apostles died. At one point, Colby and David find a box with a mannequin's head in it. This is a reference to the film Se7en, in which seven people are killed for committing one of the seven deadly sins. The film ends with the main characters finding an actual head in a box.

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: After explaining why it is illogical to play the lottery, Charlie asks the FBI agent if he ever plays craps. I didn't get the joke. Any help?

Answer: Craps is a casino game where players bet on the outcome of a dice roll. It deals heavily with probabilities and is a favorite of math experts like Charlie. Whatever the odds, though, your chances of winning are much greater than winning the lottery.
