Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Rob Hanning Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: January 23, 2012 Let’s just get this out of the way, “An Embarrassment of Bitches” is referring to the dogs. Bitch is a perfectly legitimate term for a female dog and is commonly used in dog show circles, where this episode of CASTLE opens. At first, it looks like we’re going to have a lovely take-off on Best In Show, with all the jealousy and sniping, but since it turns out that […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Christine Boylan Director: Kate Woods Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: January 16, 2011 If ever ABC did not do CASTLE any favors, it was with this episode, “Dial M for Mayor.” The promos made it look like Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and crime-solving author dilletant Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) were going to be facing a serious rift in their good friendship over Castle’s support of his buddy Mayor Robert Weldon (Derek Webster). Nope. Have to take note – this episode was […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Grae Director: Jeff Bleckner Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: January 9, 2011 For those who bemoaned the darker turn CASTLE had taken earlier this season, they have nought to complain about in “Till Death Do Us Part.” It is the final few days before Det. Kevin Ryan’s (Seamus Dever) wedding to Jenny Duffy-O’Malley (played by Seamus Dever’s real-life wife Juliana Dever) and a body has dropped out of a hotel window onto a fruit stand. Turns out the stiff has two names […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Cuffed”

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 »
