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 »

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 »

Tonight we find out if Beckett (Stana Katic) is going to survive the gun shot she took in the final minutes of the Season Three finale of the sometimes dramatic, sometimes funny detective whodunnit series CASTLE featuring author Richard “Rick” Castle (Nathan Fillion) solving crimes with his lady cop inspiration Detective Kate Beckett. Okay, it’s a gimme that Beckett is going to pull through – kinda hard to continue the series if she didn’t. But there was Castle’s declaration of love as he held her in his arms as she slowly passed out. And that kind of got us here […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: CASTLE Season 4 scoop from executive producer Laurie Zaks

Over three seasons of ABC’s CASTLE – which returns for its fourth season on Monday, September 19 – we’ve seen Nathan Fillion’s wealthy, best-selling mystery novelist Rick Castle fall for Stana Katic’s Kate Beckett, the dedicated NYPD homicide detective Castle follows around. Initially, Castle’s ride-alongs were for research, but by now everybody recognizes there’s a greater investment there than just getting the facts right. In Season Three, Beckett got a lead on the cold case murder of her own mother, which unveiled a conspiracy involving Beckett’s police captain, Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s Roy Montgomery.Montgomery died heroically, protecting Beckett, but at his funeral, […]Read On »

Interview: Nathan Fillion rocks CASTLE

ABC’s hit show CASTLE, wrapping up its third season Mondays at 10 PM and coming back for a fourth season, is named for its hero. Nathan Fillion’s Richard Castle is a hugely successful NY-based mystery novelist who lives with his mother Martha (Susan Sullivan) and teenaged daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn). He has become unofficial partner to NYPD homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), who treats Castle with a combination of affection, annoyance and attraction as he trails her, ostensibly as inspiration for his writing, but clearly more because he just enjoys her company. For anyone who doesn’t know Fillion’s pre-CASTLE […]Read On »

Interview: Stana Katic storms CASTLE

On ABC’s Monday 10 PM hit CASTLE, now wrapping its third season and renewed for a fourth, Stana Katic’s NYPD detective has an affectionate if often adversarial relationship with Nathan Fillion’s writer Richard Castle. On screen, Castle uses the no-nonsense Beckett as the model for his new literary heroine Nikki Heat. In person, Canada-born actress Katic (QUANTUM OF SOLACE, THE LIBRARIAN: THE CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE, THE SPIRIT) comes off as being a bit softer and more cheerful than Beckett. The actress is no less busy than her character, though, so she can’t talk for long, but here’s what […]Read On »

At first, Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and Castle can’t find a motive for the killing of the young Olympic […]Read On »

Movie Review: SUPER

SUPER movie poster | ©2011 IFC Midnight

Rating: R Stars: Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, Liv Tyler, Nathan Fillion Writer: James Gunn Director: James Gunn Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: April 1, 2011 There is nothing whatsoever wrong with being part of a subgenre. For example, despite the existence of ALIEN, it’s perfectly possible to make a terrific new movie about scary extraterrestrials – which SUPER writer/director James Gunn actually did a few years back with his horror comedy SLITHER. Gunn’s new film SUPER fits into the non-super-powered superhero genre. The giant monolith in this field is obviously BATMAN, but SUPER belongs to an even smaller […]Read On »
