Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe Director: John Terleskey Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: December 5, 2011 I have to give writers Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe a lot of credit for finding a legitimate way to tell a story in flashback (a tactic I usually find lazy and abhorrent). They start the “Cuffed” episode of CASTLE with crime-solving author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) waking up hand-cuffed together. The flashback scenes happen […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Kill Shot”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: David M. Barrett Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: November 22, 2011 At first it seems like the normal banter between Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author consultant Richard Castle (Nathan Filion) as they walk to the crime scene in the “Kill Shot” episode of CASTLE . Then Beckett lets it drop that she’s still in physical therapy as part of her recovery from the gun shot wound she got at the end of last season when a […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Heartbreak Hotel”

Nathan Fillion in CASTLE - Season 4 - "Heartbreak Hotel" | ©2011 ABC/Eric McCandless

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: November 7, 2011 Aside from the flashback which begins “Heartbreak Hotel,” this is one of those episodes that go back to the fun and witty CASTLE that we all know and love. Not happy about the flashback – flashback storytelling is just a lame way to build excitement at the beginning of a show when it does not need it. Nor did this one even come close to playing trough. Blech. […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Cops and Robbers”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terence Paul Winter Director: Bryan Spicer Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 31, 2011 Those CASTLE fans looking for the usual light-hearted banter, witty repartee and twists and turns aren’t going to like this episode. Because this one is the other side of the series featuring crime fiction author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and his real-life muse Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) solving crimes together. The show has always featured some heavier, more dramatic episodes – it has to, it would […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Demons”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Rob Hanning Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 24, 2011 “Demons” is a marvelously made episode of CASTLE and I absolutely hated it. Okay, the truth comes out, I am a world-class weenie and creepy stuff just plain freaks me. Do. Not. Like. It. However, it’s CASTLE, and even if I don’t like scary stuff, the episode was nonetheless outstanding. When the star of a ghost hunting TV show gets murdered in the house he’s investigating, it looks more […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Eye of the Beholder”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Shalisha Francis Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 17, 2011 Looks like we’ve got some thawing on the part of Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) – who is ostensibly not in love with author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), who works with her to solve crimes. Like heck, she isn’t, and it comes out when Castle gets tangled up with a really hot insurance investigator who horns her way into their latest case. In this one, a museum director […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Kick the Ballistics”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerold Writer: Moira Kirland Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 10, 2011 With “Kick the Ballistics”, CASTLE is really on. And it was on in this episode with a hey-nonny. When the body of a young woman, killed execution style, is found on a construction site, it seems more than a little odd that a college kid making extra bucks by tutoring should find herself the target of a mob hit. But the real shocker is when the ballistics come back […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Head Case”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Writer: David Grae Director: Holly Dale Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 3, 2011 The case latest CASTLE case starts with a lot of blood – enough that it’s pretty obvious that a stiff is involved. And Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) are, for the moment, more absorbed in Castle’s daughter’s latest crisis. It seems Alexis (Molly Quinn) is learning the hard way the truth of that great Rolling Stones anthem, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Things […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Heroes and Villains”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas Writer: Andrew W. Marlowe, David Amann Director: Jeff Bleckner Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 26, 2011 This is your classic CASTLE episode – a little flirting between Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Becket (Stana Katic), a family issue with Castle’s daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn), and his mom Martha (Susan Sullivan) doing something weird that oddly complements the case that Castle and Beckett are working. Fair warning – the opening scenes are pretty gross. The victim – a complete no-goodnik name Tyler Faris (James Ferris) – […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 Premiere – “Rise”

Stars: Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion, Jon Huertas, Seamus Deaver, Molly Quinn, Susan Sullivan Writer: Andrew W. Marlowe Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: September 19, 2011 When last we left Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) during the Season 3 finale of CASTLE, she’d been shot – presumably by the same cabal behind her mother’s death – with Castle holding her and telling her he loves her. So, obviously, she survives. We knew that going in – although kudos to writer Andrew Marlowe (who created the series) and director Rob Bowman for granting us just a little […]Read On »
