This is my favourite TV series while I still watched TV(along with the Star Treks). In the pilot episode itself math is used to track a serial murderer.

Somewhere the assumptions go wrong and it all blows up in their face (only to be sorted out later …obviously).
Was watching this episode as I waited for the clock to tick down pending my departure from home on 31st December.
Liked this dialogue between the Mathematician Charles Eppes and the physicist Larry Fleihnardt that I wrote it down.
CE : Larry something went wrong and I don’t know what. Now it looks like I can’t even think.
LF: Let me guess…you tried to solve a problem involving human behaviour and it blew up in your face.
.(will not bore you with the rest of it)

LF : And Charlie, when you’re dealing with human problems there’s going to be pain and disappointment. You got to ask yourself IS IT WORTH IT?
