John Reese, a former CIA operative, is recruited by Harold Finch, billionaire software-genius. Harold wants John to help him with preventing violent crimes.

This is done by monitoring the entire world through every cell-phone, email and surveillance camera. Harold discovered that the machine sees everything. Everything from potential terrorist acts to violent crimes that involve ordinary people.
The government considered everything but acts of terror "irrelevant", so Harold made a backdoor. A backdoor gives him the social security numbers of people involved in future violent crimes.
Harold and John work together to try to stop these "irrelevant" crimes before they happen.

Is Numb3rs good?
Numb3rs is a cool series. I have watched it a couple of times.
It`s interesting to see how they use different algorithms to solve criminal cases. Like most shows, they do simplify things. Some of the data points are much too complicated to gather in the time they do. And some of the data is way too generalized to get so exact results as they get. But this is common in almost every piece of entertainment. This show still rocks.

Is Alphas good?
Alphas is an excellent series, but I am not sure if I should recommend it. There is one thing that I hate with this series, and that one thing is the reason why I will never buy this show. They canceled it with a cliff hanger. That should be a criminal offense, an offense punished by no TV for the rest of their life.

I like The Blacklist, it's a cool show.
Not only is the show about catching criminals. A second thrilling plotline surrounding Elizabeth Keen is also in play over the whole show.
It`s cool to watch worldwide criminals taken down.

This is a really good show. They drag the Red John story out a little too long, but that`s OK since the main part of the show is the individual cases and the relationships between the characters.
