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 »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Recoil”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Rob Hanning, Story by Rob Hanning & Cooper McMains Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 4, 2013 When you think of “Recoil,” especially in the context of a crime-show such as CASTLE, you generally think of a gun recoiling back toward the shooter. But it also means drawing back in disgust from something repugnant, and for Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and crew, it’s hard to think of a character more repugnant than the man who had Kate’s mother […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Death Gone Crazy”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Jason Wilborn Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: January 21, 2013 It’s business as usual on CASTLE this week with a charming, but not terribly deep episode, “Death Gone Crazy,” featuring a soft-core video porn king getting strangled with a really expensive bra in the ladies’ room at the video launch party. Unusually, this one is pretty much all about the case. Okay, Esposito (Jon Huertas) gets friendly with one of the suspects, Scarlett Jones (Kelly Hu) – they have so […]Read On »

On CASTLE, our best-selling novelist title character, played by Nathan Fillion, may have trouble working out his love life vis-à-vis Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), but he’s a wonderful dad to daughter Alexis, portrayed by Molly Quinn. CASTLE is now in its fifth season on ABC, Mondays at 10 PM. Texas-born Quinn is now eighteen years old, which means she started playing Alexis when she was fourteen. With Quinn on the red carpet at the Disney WRECK-IT RALPH premiere – the movie and CASTLE have the same parent company – ASSIGNMENT X caught up with her for some insight on […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Probable Cause”

Marlowe Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 29, 2012 After watching last week’s tease, I was seriously afraid I was going to have to slap the CASTLE producers for “Probable Cause,” this week’s episode. After how many years of jerking us around with the relationship between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett, I was so sure that when Castle got arrested for murder, they were going to have Beckett and him breaking up or something. Nope! […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Murder He Wrote”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Grae Director: Rob Brown Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 15, 2012 We’re still in light and fluffy mode on CASTLE, with “Murder He Wrote” not really involving any writing – that’s just what author and dilettante detective Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) told his NYPD buddies he was going to be doing on his weekend at his place in the Hamptons. The real reason he told Detectives Ryan (Seamus Driver) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) he was going to the Hamptons to […]Read On »

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 »
