Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Rob Hanning Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 23, 2013 So we were left hanging at the end of last season, with Castle (Nathan Fillion) down on one knee, proposing marriage. Fade in on “Valkyrie” with Beckett (Stana Katic) thrilled that he proposed. It’s CASTLE, of course it’s not clear cut. Turns out she was afraid he was trying to break up. But here’s where it gets good. Instead of being a jerk about her new job and insisting […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Andrew W. Marlowe Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 13, 2013 I simply do not understand why the producers of CASTLE seem to feel the need to jerk their viewers around with this constant will they/won’t they game between Castle (Nathan Filion) and Beckett (Stana Katic). They spent four season playing with getting the two together – not only taking a miserably long time, but doing it in the most excrutiating way. Then they spent a good chunk of last season […]Read On »

Jason O’Mara plays Jack Lamb, Ralph’s brother and now a deputy sheriff who has become romantically entangled with mob boss’ daughter Mia Rizzo, played by Sarah Jones.

On VEGAS, CBS Friday nights at 9 PM, it’s 1960 and the Mob and glamour are both hitting town. This is a problem for rancher-turned-sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid), who in turn is making life a little rough forChicago businessman/casino owner Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis). Carrie-Anne Moss’ character Katherine O’Connell keeps tabs on both men, though her relationship with Lamb is considerably less adversarial than her encounters with Savino. Canadian-born Moss will forever be revered by science-fiction fans for her portrayal of martial arts-savvy heroine Trinity in the three MATRIX films. Other feature credits include FIDO, DISTURBIA and Christopher Nolan’s […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “The Wild Rover”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Terencce Paul Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 1o p.m. Original Telecast: March 25, 2013 “The Wild Rover” starts out as your standard CASTLE episode, with light-hearted banter between Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic), a weirdly positioned stiff and the usual odd clues. But it quickly turns into something really extraordinary – namely CASTLE at it’s best. The victim is a cupcake baker found shot to death in a mixing bowl of his batter. But, lo, there’s a magic briefcase filled with $50,000 […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Scared to Death”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Shalisha Francis Director: Ron Underwood Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: March 18, 2013 Let’s be real. CASTLE is never going get it right regarding police procedure. The writers routinely screw up the real world facts in favor of a cool connection, and most of the time we don’t really mind because we know going in this is not about accuracy, it’s about fun. In “Scared to Death,” we get plenty of the amusement factor – which is why this didn’t get a lower […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Hunt”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Andrew W. Marlowe Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 25, 2013 Did we or did we not call in last week’s episode of CASTLE, “Target?” Now, in “Hunt,” we are vindicated – Alexis (Molly Quinn) was, indeed, the target in the double kidnapping. Yes! Better yet, the circumstances were totally unexpected and there was only one loose end left dangling. Okay, it may have gotten picked up, but I didn’t hear that part. So just as the Feds were telling […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Target”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  David Amann Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 18, 2013 As much as I watch CASTLE because I enjoy its frivolity and silliness, I do generally love the more dramatic episodes because they tend to be the better crafted overall. Alas, not so with “Target.” This first of two parts feels like the writers had too much story for one episode, but not quite enough for two, since much of the episode involves Castle (Nathan Fillion) mooning about once everyone realizes […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Reality Star Struck”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  David Grae Director: Larry Shaw Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 11, 2013 Let’s be real. Nobody, but nobody is watching CASTLE for the clever mysteries (because they frequently aren’t) and the realistic depiction of police work (because it’s anything but realistic). We watch CASTLE for the relationships between the characters and the sheer fun of it when the writers take off on a parody trip. And we’ve got both in “Reality Star Struck.” The only reason the episode didn’t get a higher grade was […]Read On »
