The name F. Mancuso Jr. can be seen on a reserved parking space outside the television studio. This is an inside joke and reference to creator and executive producer Frank Mancuso Jr. See more »

Goofs

The driver who nearly hits Winston's double is the same one who hits and kills Sylvia in "Vanity's Mirror." The footage is clearly recycled. See more »

A desperate newscaster uses the negatives from a cursed camera to create dopplegangers which he sends out to kill people. He then has the killer contact him in the middle of his newscast, giving him the perfect alibi while boosting his ratings. After Ryan witnesses one of the killings, the Curious Goods gang must figure out how he is able to seemingly be in two places at once...

"Double Exposure" is a really good episode. Sure, the curse may seem a little outrageous, but it is pretty well-written and moves at a good enough pace to keep you interested in what's going on. The special effects are easily the highlight of this episode. The creation of the dopplegangers is quite creepy looking.

There a few nitpicks I had with this episode. While one would think that each doppleganger is a separate being at one point one of them asks Winston Knight why he keeps destroying him, indicating that the doppleganger had memories of his past "lives." I couldn't help but feel that Catherine Disher, the woman who plays Ryan's doomed girlfriend, was not a very good choice as they didn't seem to have much chemistry. Jack is also subdued by Winston Knight a little too easily.

The final issue would be with a minor plot hole left by the ending. Even though we're told that the negative must be destroyed within a period of time or the real person disappears instead of the doppleganger, we never see the negative for Jack's doppleganger get destroyed. Since Winston created it with the intent to kill Micki and Ryan and frame Jack, I would think he would have probably hid it somewhere secret. After both Winstons die, the real Jack is fine, his doppleganger is gone and it's never explained how the negative was recovered.

"The Quilt of Hathor" would be a hard act to follow, but "Double Exposure" easily rises to the occasion and manages to continue the show's hot streak.
