First things first, this is not a Japanese Numb3rs. The main similarity is the professor- crime solving genius who goes off on tangents and starts scribbling down formulas to help solve the crimes. In Galileo the professor is a physicist who begrudgingly aids a very attractive policewoman in her investigations. All the episodes are good, but episode 1 is excellent. There is great chemistry between the 2 leads, the physicist and policewoman. This show is superior to Numb3rs for several reasons. The plots of each show are novel and the physics is explained well. There are no nonsensical chase scenes. Highly recommended.
