Reheated Recap: High Exposure (Numb3rs 501)

Why am I doing this? In the wake of "Arrow of Time," I think the awesomeness of this eppesode is going to be lost and that makes me sad. Thus, I feel the need to record some of my thoughts after watching it for the 10th time the rerun last night.

1) Edgerton is still the epitome of all things enigmatic and cool.

2) Nikki is not immune to the above point.

3) I've viewed the Robin & Amita scene (not Robin/Amita because that would be fanfic and a big DO NOT WANT from me, as I love me my Don/Robin) and find it more and more painfully awkward each time. Despite this, I still stand by my decision to award the NPAL™ to Amita's line about Charlie being unable to stop working. Seriously, admitting you're getting none when in a stable relationship is way worse than Robin implying she's getting it all the time.

4) Despite the awkwardness of the scene, I liked the two women attempting to bond but not really knowing how to do it. These are two alpha women. Not going with the stereotype of arguing or being in peril to bond, makes me happy.

5) Pete has to be the worst rock climber ever when he injures himself after jumping out of a tree. Seriously, I did that all the time when I was little - from much higher up - and never injured a damn thing. You'd think rock climbers would know how to land correctly, particularly when they choose the moment they jump.

6) I empathize with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as they watch Pete figure out Skeet is a girl. There's a wistfulness there which makes me wonder if these two will ever find someone outside of fanfic. It still amazes me that the loyal, stable and all-around perfect catch, David, hasn't been snapped up yet. He personifies the concept of marriage material! Someone give my BFFedcake some love!

7) Larry playing Charlie like a fiddle is still humourous. I'm not entirely confident Charlie ever knew he was being played.

8) I still believe the aftermath of Charlie helping on this case was unfair. Come on! Don was in danger and Edgerton was the one to ask for the help! How is this, in any morality, wrong?

9) Eppesodes like this one make me long for more Edgerton or a shout out, world peace and a pony.


  1. Don't worry everytime I watch Dexter I yell at Claudia to get her butt back David. Cause yes, David needs love!

  2. At this point, I'd be happy for David to find any really nice woman who'll treat him with the respect he deserves!

  3. Wheee! Okay, it's taken me a while to come here, see that Spy is still kicking recaper booty but . . .

    YEAH! Spy's still Kicking Recap Hiney!

    Looking forward to your upcoming N3 Recap, even though I suspect that The Colby will not make an appearence, I have a sneaking suspicion the Fluted Lovely Green Opaque Glass Glass Bowl will!
