Nathan Fillion stars as Richard Castle, a famous mystery novelist who is initially called in to help the NYPD solve a copy-cat murder based on his novels. Stana Katic stars opposite as the young detective Kate Beckett. Following his encounter with Beckett, Castle decides to use her as the model for his next book series. He uses his contacts and receives permission to accompany Beckett while investigating cases. While technically a drama series, Castle also features comedy and romantic tension.
Ok, I confess, the Castle episode last night (10/27) is what gave me the drive to start this group. Last night's episode began with a tribute to Firefly as Castle trys on his "Space Cowboy" costume to prepare for halloween. The line from Alexis "Didn't you wear that about 5 years ago?" was PERFECTLY delivered
Look, I know this show is not "life-altering" TV, it's neat, compact, and serialized. I get that, and I am ok with that. Not many shows IMHO, have actors and characters that play off eachother as well as these guys do. I am curious to see what will happen if/when the Castle/Beckett "relationship" comes to fruition.
