The local Albuquerque, N.M. television station called ‘My50-TV’ runs former primetime TV shows each week. That is in accordance with the schedule for 2013. The CBS TV show, “Numb3rs” (2005-2010) airs every Wednesday night with two episodes beginning at 7 p.m. The crime drama ran on the CBS network for 6 TV seasons on Friday nights at 10 p.m. It starred Rob Morrow as an FBI agent working out of Los Angeles. The 2nd re-run episode at 8 p.m. Wednesday Feb. 13, 2013 was called “Toxin.” The ‘My50-TV’ synopsis is right here - “A few apparently random cases of product tampering lead to a mountain man with a grudge - a pharmaceutical company and a conspiracy.” Lou Diamond Phillips guest starred as an FBI agent who is a highly trained ‘sniper’ named Ian Edgerton.
The near death of a family man who uses a prescribed asthma inhaler causes Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) & his team to investigate. They uncover the deaths of several other people who are patients of the same pharmaceutical company. That company successfully keeps those deaths out of the press media. The investigation leads to a man who used to work for the company, but was fired because he wanted to blow-the-whistle on numerous failed drug testing. The company hires a hit-man posing as an employee. That leads to a mountain man who is being tracked by agent Ian Edgerton (Lou Diamond Phillips). Can the FBI team save the mountain man from a contract hit? Will the pharmaceutical company be exposed & pay for their crimes?
According to the Internet movie database (IMDB) the synopsis of “Numb3rs” is right here - “In the Los Angeles office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - Special Agent Don Eppes and his team investigate critical and baffling crimes with a special edge. That advantage is Don's brother - Charlies Eppes - a brilliant universal mathematician who uses the science of mathematics with its complex equations to ferret out the most tricky criminals. With this team - the forces of evil learn their number is up. (Written by Kenneth Chisholm).”
