In BBC America’s COPPER, Sunday nights at 10 PM, it’s 1864. Irish-American Civil War veteran Kevin “Corky” Corcoran (Tom Weston Jones) is a police detective investigating crime in the dangerous Five Points neighborhood in New York. Although Corcoran relies on two of his fellow Union Army vets for help, his partner in policing is fellow Irish immigrant Francis Maguire, played by Kevin Ryan. Ryan – not to be confused with the CASTLE character of the same name, played by Seamus Dever – is Irish in real life, which allows him to use his own accent in the role. Descended from […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Secret’s Safe With Me”

Molly Quinn in CASTLE - Season 5 - "Secret's Safe With Me" | ©2012 ABC/Richard Cartwright

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terence Paul Winter Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 8, 2012 One of the great things about CASTLE this season is now that the producers have resolved the big tease between author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), the show can now focus on the mystery part – and the mysteries have been getting better. In “Secret’s Safe With Me,” yeah, there’s a couple things you see coming, but the plot actually had some interesting twists. […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Elizabeth Beall Director: Kate Woods Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 1, 2012 For all those who have complained (with some reason) that their light-hearted whodunnit had been co-opted by the drama monsters the past few season, the old CASTLE is back with “Cloudy with a Chance of Murder.” But it’s even more fun now that author Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) are lovers. The only problem they’re having is trying to keep it quiet. See, Kate is […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “After the Storm” – Season Premiere

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Amann Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 24, 2012 Think of “After the Storm” as the part two of last season’s CASTLE finale “Always,” which you may recall I was decidedly miffed about. And still am.  Yet, despite teases from the network, it does look like we finally have a couple working out their relationship rather than the whole will they/won’t they routine. And this is one jam-packed episode. I speculated last spring that the planned hit on Det. […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Always” – Season Finale

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terri Edda Miller & Andrew W. Marlowe Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 7, 2012 It’s not enough, apparently, that the producers of CASTLE spent most of Season Three teasing us with the will they/won’t they relationship between author and dilettante crime fighter Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett. It’s not enough that they spent this entire season doing the same. They had to spend the entire season finale needlessly and ridiculously teasing us with “Always.” We do […]Read On »

CASTLE has its fourth-season finale tonight, Monday at 10 PM on ABC, but never fear – the Nielsen Top 20 series has been renewed for a fifth season. Created by Andrew W. Marlowe, CASTLE follows the adventures of Nathan Fillion’s character, popular mystery writer Richard Castle, who has teamed up with NYPD homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and helps her solve cases while the two deal with their growing deep personal interest in one another. However, Castle and Beckett wouldn’t get very far in their investigations without knowing how the victims died. Enter medical examiner Lanie Parish, played by […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Undead Again”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 30, 2012 Those of us CASTLE fans who have been waiting none too patiently for Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) to get their game on, so to speak, get some hope in “Undead Again.” The episode is for the most part classic CASTLE fluff – until near the end…. The episode starts, however with Castle sneaking up on daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn) in their ongoing laser tag game. Only […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE RAVEN

THE RAVEN | (c) 2012 Relativity Media

Rating: R Stars: John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson, Kevin R. McNally, Oliver Jackson-Cohen Writers: Ben Livingston & Hannah Shakespeare Director: James McTeigue Distributor: Relativity Media Release Date: April 27, 2012  There is a staple of detective police series, where some unhinged reader/viewer stages crimes described in fiction and/or film, and the author – after being ruled out as a suspect – is brought in to help with the investigation. This has been done relatively recently on BONES and CASTLE (both shows with mystery writer protagonists), the SCREAM movies, the Dirty Harry movie THE DEAD POOL, et cetera. […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Headhunters”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 14, 2012 It’s a little more back to business, as usual, on CASTLE, with a nice balance of comedy and some angst.  And it’s always fun to see Adam Baldwin doing his thing and he doesn’t grunt this time. Plus, the producers guiding the writers have offered us some hope that we will see Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) get their act together in the […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “The Limey”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Elizabeth Davis Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 2, 2012 Now, I get it. The producers of CASTLE are busy throwing a massive monkey wrench into the whole Castle/Beckett couple thing to ratchet up the drama for the next six weeks so that they can have a massively explosive season finale/cliffhanger and they still won’t let Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) get together even after that because they’re still stuck in the whole relationship equals […]Read On »
