Storyline

Inside the sofa of an unidentified family in London, the numberjacks operate their computer to find problems in the UK, with the help of several human agents. These problems just happen to involve an evil flying pink spoon, a bubble-breathing floating head and a mute number-obsessed criminal in a white coat and a hat.

Loved bykids, less so adults - strange villains too
8 March 2018 | by contactacbSee all my reviews

The good points are my daughter loves it and it does provide rudimentary lessons in maths and allied subjects. It's not the most polished production, but appears to entertain well, although would seem a bit repetitive (just watch the hour long marathons on the programmes official YouTube channel!) Younger viewers may be put off by some of the enemies in the show, the two that are the most unusual are the Number Taker, who dresses like an Albino Mad Hatter, but has the menace (albeit silent) of the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; and the Puzzler, who is a CGI floating bald bearded head with glasses who sounds & looks like what you may imagine an internet groomer to look like and has a laugh that is a bang on impression of Sid James from the 'Carry On' films! Honourable mentions to the Problem Blob, who spews 'Kids TV gameshow green goo' everywhere and to see has to regurgitate his eye on a stalk through his mouth; Spooky Spoon, who is a Margo Leadbetter style posh talking, well, spoon..; and the Shape Japer, which is an even more basic CGI cobe/sphere (alternating) with sharp teeth and evil eyes!
